The Equipment You Need to Start Playing Golf

 article about The Equipment You Need to Start Playing Golf
Golf is one of the most popular sports in the world and more and more people are discovering how fantastic it is every single year! If you are thinking about taking up golf but have no idea where to start, we have the below guide to help you out.

Golf Clubs and Tees


There are a few essential pieces of equipment that you will need, but the biggest investment that you will make is in your new golf clubs and tees. Players can have as many as 14 gold clubs on the playing green with there are three different types for you to choose from - woods, irons and putters. Each can offer you something different and you may need to use a few different types throughout your game! Woods are used for long shots when you are shooting from a tee while irons give the player more precision and you will often find them used on the fairway. With a putter, you will not be able to loft the ball into the air too much which makes it the best club to choose when you are trying to putt the ball into a nearby hole.

Players will also have to purchase tees before they can get started playing. If you are unfamiliar with the tee, this is simply the object that you use to place your ball on when taking your first swing. This can be made from plastic or wood and it is an essential part of the game. Without it, you won’t be able to get a good swing on your first try! They are normally in the shape of nails and you can push them into the ground, before balancing the ball on top. These can break quite frequently, however, so it is recommended that you always have a few handy.

Golf Balls


Another essential object you will need to play the sport of golf is a golf ball! Well, you will probably need to bring along with you quite a few of these as they can end up lost frequently. Golf balls normally come in different designs which are known as two piece, three piece and four pieces. This is in reference to the number of layers that were used to construct the ball. The type of ball that you choose all depends on the type of game that you want to play. Hard golf balls are normally able to travel further, while soft balls give you a better spin.

You can find all of these different types of golf balls at a high-quality online store such as The Golf Warehouse, which offers a wide range of golf balls, clubs and tees, amongst much, much more.

Golf Bags


Once you have your golfing equipment, you will also need to invest in a golf bag too. Look for a bag that has lots of different compartments to hold your different items and a comfortable strap to make it easier for you when carrying your equipment around the green.

Now you are ready to hit the green and develop your golfing skills!
