Best Golf Accessories

We all love to get our hands on some new clubs but often it’s the smaller and most convenient things that can add plenty to both your game and your enjoyment of it. Ultimately, the best golf accessories make our lives as golfers easier whether that be in terms of having a good golf towel, an umbrella that can deal with the wind and rain, or other accessories like training aids and gadgets.

Clearly, not only do we need accessories that help us out on the golf course, but we also need things to help make us better players, or make us feel good about ourselves. Oh and we would be remiss for not mentioning golf travel accessories too such as shoe bags and travel bags to protect our pride and joys. A good golf accessory that makes things easier in the airport or train station is worth its weight in gold.

As such here is a list of the best golf accessories that you might want to include in your bag or, perhaps, maybe a new bag itself. Additionally take a look at some of our other guides on golf equipment as well - such as the best golf tops, best golf shoes or the best golf bags.

Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor

One of the best budget launch monitors

Reasons to buy

+

Very easy to set up, reliable shot detection and playback options.

+

Easily portable and compared well with more premium launch monitors.

Reasons to avoid

-

Doesn't display spin numbers

-

Currently not compatible with Android devices.

The Rapsodo mobile launch monitor (opens in new tab) literally turns your smartphone into a launch monitor to give you a wide range of numbers like carry distance, ball speed, club speed, smash factor, launch angle, and launch direction.

It works in conjunction with the free Rapsodo app on your iOS smartphone indoors or outdoors. After setting up an account and logging in, players just need to rest their phone in the front slot and position it approx. six feet behind the ball. There are a number of good features. For example when you hold the club in front of your phone’s camera, it will automatically record the club you’re hitting, which worked most of the time but you can input it manually very easily.

Once you’ve selected the club and start hitting shots, the Rapsodo MLM captures video of you hitting and displays shot tracer-style graphics on the screen, which we found to be accurate most of the time, as well as certain data points like the ones we mentioned above. Additionally it’s compact size and lightweight design make it easily portable in the carry case and the LED system lets you know when you’re ready to hit.

PuttOut Premium Pressure Putt Trainer

Need to work on your putting anywhere? This aid will help

Reasons to buy

+

Much higher quality finish than its predecessor but still has all the same great features.

+

Great for practicing pace control with your putts.

Reasons to avoid

-

Need to invest in the PuttOut mat to get the best use out of it

There’s lots to like about this product and we could all do with some improved stats on the greens. This features a parabolic ramp and only a ball that is rolled on the perfect line and pace (18 inches past the hole) will stick in the micro-target. So it really helps you to focus on your pace rather than just dribbling or bolting it in. The three smaller dots can act as a narrower target or to allow you to adjust to slight breaks in a putt. The micro-target has a new pop down target which has been introduced to add a more vibrant target.

It can be folded away and taken anywhere which is one of the clearest signs of a great golf accessory, let along a training aid (opens in new tab) that will undoubtedly help you hole more putts.We also like the fact it comes in four colors.

Case adds faff

A few years ago you might have been viewed with some suspicion if you had these in your bag and you weren’t playing for your living. Thankfully that way of of thinking is changing now and they could be one of the best golf accessories for you. What have you got to lose by just keeping these tucked away in a corner of the bag? They’re durable, visible, come in a pair to help with various drills and you even get a drill sheet and instructions on what might help your game.

Definitely one of the best golf training aids you can buy and given the cheap price, it offers good value.

SuperSpeed Golf Training Set

Reasons to buy

+

Simple to use

+

Well made

+

Distance gains can be had if instructions and training techniques are stuck to

Reasons to avoid

-

Requires consistent and repetitive use to increase ball speed and distance

The SuperSpeed Golf training set is said to help you add a whopping 30 yards to your overall driver distance - quite a claim! To do this, the manufacturer says it takes at least six weeks of patient and persistent to help get that club head speed up.

Out of the box you get three golf shafts of varying color and weight that each have a grip on the butt end. Essentially, once you’ve done some stretching to prepare your body, the idea is to start with the lightest stick and swing as hard as possible a few times on your dominant side, before switching to do the same on the opposite side.

In our testing, we couldn’t devote that kind of time to try this to the fullest. But what we can tell you is that after two weeks of testing, we felt better about our swing speed and, more importantly, our flexibility to make a bigger shoulder turn. The SuperSpeed Golf men’s training set essentially works off your muscle memory, so the more time you put into it, the better and more permanent your results will be.

Tacky grip

Reasons to avoid

Not as durable as some synthetic models

Constructed from premium CabrettaSof leather, this is a nice feeling glove that offers great aeration to your hands. With its technical construction, it is also highly flexible and breathable and ensures your hand doesn't get too sweaty in warmer conditions. The CabrettaSof leather palm offers that nice tacky grip you would expect from a leather glove and it’s pretty durable to boot. On the back of the glove, a high-performance FiberSof material allows for excellent flexibility and enhanced comfort. The PowerNet mesh across the knuckles also helps with movement.

Although the fit is neat, it certainly doesn’t feel constrictive and you can move your fingers freely. Perforations have been strategically placed to allow for good breathability while the elastic cuff is moisture-wicking to further enhance fit and comfort. But if you do suffer from sweatier hands in hotter climates, make sure to check out our best golf gloves for sweaty hands guide.

Tacky feel is outstanding

Grip can be fitted both ways

They might not appeal at first (but don’t let that put you off)

The Golf Pride CPX grip is unlike any other grip that I've ever tried before and this is the market leader's softest performance grip yet. The new tech behind this includes the company's first-ever raised EXO diamond-quilted pattern. This soft and tacky material features a 45-degree pattern that has been inspired by the grips on BMX bikes. So, with the elevation in design, it maximises your contact area with the club. This is complemented with Golf Pride's Control Core technology which is located at the top of the grip where the greatest amount of swing pressure is received so you get the best of both worlds here; maximum softness and maximum control.

It looks like it might be like a javelin in the wet, it's anything but. The water seemed to wick any moisture away and I'd be far more confident if/when the heavens open with these than my previous, more corded grips. In fact we liked the performance so much the CPX made our 2022 Editor's Choice (opens in new tab) list as well.

Lots in a pack

Can be difficult to get consistent height

(Video) 10 ITEMS EVERY GOLFER SHOULD CARRY!!

We have been fans of Pride Professional for a while now because the brand makes high-quality golf tees (opens in new tab) in a variety of heights, finishes, and colors.

The yellow Pro Length Pride Professional tees are some of the most popular out there. It says for drivers under 360cc but these are the perfect height for modern-day 460cc heads. They're wooden so can be adjusted to any height you choose. Stock up with this pack of 175. The yellow section helps with consistent tee heights too. They are strong as well as our tester managed to use just one tee for the entirety of one round so it is no wonder they are the most used tee on the PGA tour.

Battery life is on the shorter side

The Puma PopTop Mini Bluetooth speaker is a stunning product. It's not much bigger than a golf ball but it in our testing it belied that compact size by delivering incredible sound quality and impressive range. It's an especially great option for walkers, as it can easily be attached to a stand bag without being intrusive or heavy. The PopTop Mini is also incredibly easy to setup, and it offers user friendly functionality.

The speaker (opens in new tab) is also waterproof, as well and dust and sand proof, and it sounds equally good indoors and outdoors, which makes it an option for use beyond the golf course. The back of the speaker also functions as a bottle opener, and while the battery life isn't the longest, it will last through an 18-hole round. And at a retail price of less than $50, the PopTop Mini is also an incredible value.

Bushnell Wingman GPS Speaker

A cool, innovative speaker for the golf course

Reasons to buy

+

Excellent sound quality

+

Audible GPS distances come in handy

+

Bite magnet holds it strongly in place

Reasons to avoid

-

Best-suited for golf in buggies, so is less convenient to use if you carry or have a trolley.

Bushnell describe the Wingman as a “first of its kind” product and with the multitude of features on offer it is hard to argue. It is a device that enables you to combine high quality audio from your phone with audible GPS distances from the Bushnell Golf App. That way you can get what we found to be accurate front, middle and back yardages, or you can choose to listen to music of your choice as well.

It’s pretty easy to set up as you simply pair your phone with the Wingman using Bluetooth and the app is free to download when you buy a Bushnell product. It can easily be attached to your bag or you can attach it to your buggy thanks to the magnetic Bite technology as well. The rechargeable battery lasts up to 10 hours and we didn’t have any problems with it running out prematurely. It also has a built-in USB port for charging other devices, which is a nice addition as you’ll be using your phone a lot.

Not as powerful as larger massage guns.

It uses Percussive Therapy to help ease tight muscles, aches and pains.

Reasons to buy

Stylish, comfortable and stay secure when swinging

Reasons to avoid

View is a little too dark when the sun isn’t at its brightest

Oakley's Portal X model is one of the best golf sunglasses (opens in new tab) on the market because it is perfect for use not just out on the golf course but also away from it too. Importantly the design lends itself to being worn all day because comfort is one of the key characteristics. After testing we found these to be stylish, comfortable and the Prizm Dark Golf lenses undoubtedly enhance the contrast on bright days, which is especially helpful on greens with subtle slopes.

The tacky material used for the nose pads ensures a comfortable but secure fit while the special Unobtanium material on the inside of the earsocks has a similar feel and increases in grip when wet. This ensures that when you sweat, a common occurrence when playing on hot sunny days, they stay firmly in position when you swing.
