To play golf, you don't have to be decked out in the most up-to-date golf apparel and footwear. All you need are sports shoes, comfy shorts, jeans, or a skirt, and a shirt at the least (some clubs may require a collared shirt and sleeves for men). You'll probably want to add to your golf-specific clothing as you play more and better. Here's how to get started.
Golf Shirt Boys should wear collared polo, while girls have more stylistic alternatives, including sleeveless options, when it comes to shirts.
Golf pants, shorts, or skirts are all acceptable options. Over jeans, comfortable slacks, pants, or golf skirts are suggested.
Shoes for golf
Athletic sneakers may be fine at the start, but golf shoes with soft spikes provide better performance as you develop.
Cushioned athletic socks for walking.
Glove for golf
A glove gives you a more secure grip on the club and protects your hand from blisters.
Hat for golf
When you play golf, the weather is usually sunny. A hat may shield your face from the sun while also preventing sweat from getting into your eyes.
Bag for golf
A bag that holds your clubs, balls, tee, and other golfing essentials. They normally have two shoulder straps to make walking more comfortable.
Bottle of Water
Bring enough water to last you the entire round, or double-check that water is accessible on the course.
Push Cart for Golf
Junior golfers can either carry their bag or use a pushcart with three wheels to take the weight of their equipment off their backs. You can rent pushcarts at most golf courses or bring your own.
Device for Measuring Distance
Once your golf game improves to the point that you can consistently hit your various clubs at the same distance, a distance measuring gadget will be useful in determining how far away you are. Many courses additionally install 100, 150, and 200-yard plates in the fairway or mark sprinkler heads on the course with yardage to the center of the green. GPS is also available in golf apps for smartphones.
