Going on holiday is always good fun but who enjoys the tedious job of packing! NOT ME. GolfGuys have decided that we’re here to help you develop a golf-trip checklist and to pick out some new items for you to wear and pack. You never know when 18 holes could turn into 36—or dinner turns into a night on the town—so there are certain items you should always plan on packing, even if you’re not sure whether you’ll need them or not. Make sure you pack these essentials on your next trip to stay stylish and prepared no matter what comes up.
1. A durable travel cover for your clubs
It is very important to have a durable golf bag, we have had many clients over the years that have opened up their bags on arrival only to find the new drivers broken in half. Not a fun way to start a holiday!!
2. A warm jacket you never know when it will come in handy
The trick with taking a jacket on holiday is for it to be light, nothing worse than having to lug around a heavy jacket in your bag! the Cutter & Buck Barlow pass jacket Weighs a light 58 grams perfect for travelling.
3. A cool pair of shades
There’s nothing worse than leaving for a trip and only realizing you forgot to bring sunglasses when you’re too far to turn back. You can buy a cheap pair at the nearest trinket store, but they usually look as cheap as they cost and don’t have the level of eye protection you need out on the golf course.
4. A good rangefinder
Stop spending your time on the fairways figuring out what distance you from the hole! Instead, shoot your distance with the Bushnell V4 Tour Slope and start thinking about the type of shot you’re going to play.
5. A shoe bag
A must-have while your travelling alway useful and help to keep that cheesy smell away from your clothes and nose!
6. A good hat
Unless you have space in your bag for a hat box—which we doubt you do—be mindful when packing caps to not ruin the bill. Luggage can get thrown around, so opt for the Rhode Island Lived In Cap. It can be twisted, bent, smooshed or pulled and still maintain a perfect mold. The brim looks surprisingly hard despite its soft construction, great for those less-than-neat packers.
7. A healthy snack
A must have is a healthy snack to keep you going on the course we would like to recommend the Max Golf Protein bar we find it hits the spot every time!
8. Sun Protection
You don’t want to be walking off the course with that red face. Its always a good idea to have that sun protection in the bag but we know that it can get heavy and sometimes annoying to carry so we got the perfect solution for you the Small Techniblock spray bottle light and effective.
9. Don’t forget the basics
Another staple to keep in mind while packing for your next golf trip is socks. It’s easy to match the number of socks you pack to the number of days your trip will last—but that’s a big mistake. Especially if you’ve got multiple rounds a day, you’ll want multiple socks. It’s a simple way to feel refreshed if you don’t have time to shower before sightseeing. Stance socks are always a good travel sock because the cushion support system provides the right padding and support you’ll need all day, and the wicking fabric will keep you dry.
