Your golf bag is full of the items you know you will need. From your clubs to your gloves, everything is packed away and ready for the next time you go and hit the course. However, your bag should be storing more than just your golf equipment. Here are the top 5 things we recommend you also keep in your bag at all times.
Sunscreen- Golf is an outdoor sport and with outdoor sports comes the sun. While hats will help protect your skin, you still need another barrier. Having a waterproof sunscreen of at least SPF 30 will allow you to protect your skin. Any exposed skin is susceptible to getting burned, don’t risk it. You can even find sunscreen sticks that are great for your face and that won’t leave sticky residue.
Snacks- Don’t rely too heavily on the beverage cart, your wallet and stomach will thank you. Trail mix, dried fruit, or at the very least a granola bar should make it into your bag. At some point on the course, you will get hungry so having a snack ready to go will help you get through the course until either the beverage cart comes around or you make it back to the clubhouse.
Socks- Yes we know, you have a pair on your feet already, but having an extra pair on hand is always a great option. If the morning dew soaks into your shoes or you accidentally step in mud or a puddle, a fresh pair of socks will protect your feet.
Umbrella- The rain won’t stop just because you are on the course so you might as well be prepared. Especially in states where the rain is known to go off and on like a tap, having an umbrella on hand means you can take it out when you need it and put it away when you don’t. Plus, if the sun is bearing down, this provides another way to stay cool and protect your skin along with your sunscreen.
