Golf Push Carts
A golf push cart is essentially a small trolley designed to help carry golf clubs around the course. They come in all shapes and sizes, but the most popular have either 3 or 4 wheels.
You can get both electric and push/push carts – obviously electric is more expensive.
Before golf push carts became fashionable, you would either have to carry your own clubs around the course or pay a caddy to do it for you. While a caddy is great, lots of smaller clubs simply don’t have them – and if they do, they can also end up being quite expensive.
Using a golf cart means that you can simply wheel your clubs around the course – meaning you’re always fresh to every hole. It can also speed up your game massively adding quality play time.
We have covered a whole range of push carts on our site, and also created a handy guide outlining our top picks.
A golf bag is really as simple as it sounds – a bag to carry our club sets. While it has this one simple function, there are a ton of different variations on the market. There are several types of bags; golf carry bags, tour bags, golf bags for a pushcart, stand bags, pencil bags, waterproof bags and travel bags.
A great golf bag provides us your clubs and personal items with protection as you go from hole to hole. Some also have room for things such as jackets or umbrellas.
There are a few things you should look for when buying a golf bag. These include: durability, appearance, quality, weight, size and features (such as the jacket or umbrella holders mentioned above.)

A golf club is used to hit a golf ball, right? Well yes. But there’s so much more to it than that. There lots of different types of clubs including woods, irons, hybrids, wedges and putters.
Each is designed to be using in a specific situation. A great example of this would be using a sand wedge to help you get out from a sand bunker.
There are also different types of each club – for example there are iron drivers or wood drivers. This is simply the shape of the head and indicates how it should be used.
An important aspect to consider when choosing a club it is loft – the angle between the clubs face and the vertical plane. Essentially, loft determines how far and long a shot will go. Most beginners don’t need to worry about this though.
While most beginners don’t need every type of club, it’s generally recommended that they have at least woods, irons and putters.

Distance control is one of the secrets to improving your game and driving down your handicap. At heart, a rangefinder is a device that measures the distance from you to another point down the course.
Why do you need a golf rangefinder?
Put simply, it will help improve your game. If you know how far you need to hit the ball, then you can select the right club and have an idea on how hard you should be swinging.
There are several types of rangefinders: Laser, GPS watch and GPS handheld.
When deciding on which one to buy, you should consider speed, reliability, accuracy, and price. As you progress from beginner to pro, the features and accuracy you require will increase.
We have covered a whole range of rangefinders – both for beginners and pros. We have also created handy buyers guides that cover what you should look for.
Golf accessories is quite open – what exactly is a golf accessory? Well the list is pretty long to be honest, but they can include divot tools, club brushes, shoe bags, gloves, umbrellas, towels, sunscreen, water bottles, tees, rain gear, hats, sunglasses and a ton more.
Some of the other accessories that seem to be gaining in popularity are training aids. They have been designed specifically for off-course use, and essentially help you develop either your techniques or muscles to improve your on-course game.
Why do people like training aids? Well simply they are a convenient way to practise at home/office without having to visit the driving range.
Some of the post popular training aids include flex tempos, putting greens, alignment sticks, swing trainers and putting trainers.
