Microfiber Golf Towel

Every golfer needs a cleaning towel that’s easy to carry and makes cleaning golf clubs a synch. Look for a microfiber option like the Mile High Life Tri-Fold Towel, which allows for less water retention than traditional cotton towels. It also features a waffle design that adds texture to remove dirt, mud and sand in just one wipe.


You have a GPS in your car, and now you can have it on the course! Preloaded with over 35,000 worldwide golf courses, products like the GolfBuddy Voice GPS come with automatic hole detection and exact shot distance measurements. Best of all, most products are multilingual, rechargeable and easy to use.

Iron Headcovers

While iron headcovers can be a pain to use, they do provide extra protection for your clubs during play and travel. Some of the best headcovers on the market use thick, flexible synthetic leather that’s easy to remove and replace. Look for waterproof and scratch-proof products that are resistant to creases and folds.


Putting can be one of the most frustrating, yet rewarding parts of the game. Most of the performance comes back to the type of putter you have in your golf bag. A top pick this year is the Titleist Scotty Cameron Select Newport 3, which delivers the feel every golfer needs in a classic-looking putter, while still offering modern technology and materials.

Golf Umbrella

Having an umbrella handy during a pop-up thunderstorm is critical if you don’t want to finish your round completely soaked. While many options aren’t able to stand up to whatever nature throws at them, the BAGAIL Double Canopy Golf Umbrella is large and durable enough to handle even the heaviest downpour.

Swing Analyzer

We’re not all lucky enough to have a golf pro analyzing our swing. Golf accessories like the Zepp Golf 3D Swing Analyzer can do it for you. Simply attach it to your glove, and track clubhead speed, swing plane, hand path, tempo, backswing position, hip rotation, and more. Now it’s easy to get a bunch of statistics and numbers about your swing, which can be interpreted to boost your golf game.

Glowing Golf Balls

If an intense game keeps you on the course until close to sunset, glowing golf balls make it much easier to locate the ball after your shot. These balls perform just as well as ordinary golf balls with a full compression core, but stay bright four to six hours after charging so you never lose them.
