Golf bags aren’t just for holding clubs; like any sport, golf requires other essential equipment and helpful items that make your game a little easier. Here are the essentials for stocking your golf bag:

  • At least six balls

  • A few wooden tees

  • A couple of gloves

  • A rain suit

  • A pitch-mark repair tool

  • A few small coins (preferably foreign) to mark your ball on the green

  • Two or three pencils

  • Sunscreen

  • A small pouch for your wallet, money clip, loose change, car keys, rings, and cellphone (which is turned off)

  • A spare towel
