Golfing is a fun and challenging activity. If you’re a beginner, you may be unsure of what to bring on your first outing. Luckily, you don’t need to buy everything. Here are three essential pieces of equipment to bring to the course.

What to Bring When Golfing

1. Golf Clubs & a Golf Bag

The clubs you need to bring depend on your skill level. A driver, putter, and some irons or wedges are necessary. A beginner may prefer woods and irons that are easier to control. These include a 3 and 5 wood and 3, 5, 7, and 9 irons.

You can also purchase a set of clubs. A full set will come with a variation of clubs for the different shots you will take while on the course. You’ll also need a lightweight bag to carry your clubs.

2. Golf Balls & Tees

GolfingWhenever you hit the course, you should bring up to two dozen balls. Some golfers prefer to mark their balls by adding a couple of dots with a permanent marker. Doing this can help you identify your ball if it hits a hazard and you need to find it. You should also pack wooden tees in your bag.

3. Golf Shoes or Sneakers

Golf shoes have soft cleats on the bottom that keep your feet planted while swinging. Aside from improving your game, some courses require you to wear golf shoes to prevent damage to the course. If you don’t have golf shoes, you can wear a pair of sneakers that have solid traction.
