Are You Looking For Cheap Golf Accessories Online?

By Mick Euan Tait

As golf is an expensive game, many golfers are on the lookout for cheap golf accessories. After you have invested in golf clubs and golf balls you might want to save some money by checking out some cheap golf accessories.

If you are a seasoned golfer, you probably have all the golf equipment that you need but there are always some new golf accessories that you want. For the beginner that is just starting out and has already bought their golf clubs and balls, it can be quite daunting when they realize that there are several items of golf accessories that they need to buy.

The best thing you can do is look for cheap golf accessories online. The online golf stores generally have a very large choice of golf accessories and they can offer them at lower prices because they don't have the same expenses as the off line golf stores. The first thing that you have to take into consideration is what golf accessories you need to get started.

When talking about golf accessories, it is usually all the golf equipment apart from the golf clubs, shoes, and balls. When looking at online golf stores, you may find that they have individual categories for golf apparel and golf bags, but other golf stores will group them together with the other accessories.

Assuming that you bought a full set of clubs, then you will probably have received a golf bag as part of the deal. On the other hand, if you don't have a golf bag then that will be the first golf accessory on your list. The choice of golf bags at online stores can be overwhelming but you have to decide on the type of golf bag that you want first.

Most popular for the beginner is the carry golf bag or the stand golf bag. The only real difference between the two being that the stand bag has fold-out legs that keeps the bag of off the ground when you take your shot. Next comes the cart golf bag which fits onto a push / pull cart or an electric cart and are sometimes a bit larger - this can be useful if you plan to take along extra gear like waterproofs, drinks, or warmer clothes. The last type of bag is the tour or staff golf bag which are generally only used by the professional golfers' caddies as they are so large and heavy.

Obviously, if you choose a cart bag, you will then need a golf cart. The majority of golfers won't need an electric cart as they are a lot more expensive and you have to always make sure that the battery is fully charged up before playing a round of golf. If you like walking and are fit enough, then a push cart is the best option for the price. Nowadays, these push carts are extremely lightweight, robust, maneuverable, and they fold up to a small size to fit in any car.

That only leaves you with a few items of small cheap golf accessories - a golf glove, golf tees, a divot tool, and golf ball markers. All these golf accessories can be found easily at online golf stores cheaply. If you play your golf in Northern climates, then you will probably need a golf umbrella and a golf towel as you can never guarantee the weather.

There are some items that you can do without when first starting out, like golf apparel - just use your regular clothes but make sure they are within the dress code of your local golf club and that they are comfy for playing golf. So, if you want to save some money, buy cheap golf accessories online.
