What golf equipment do I really need to get started?

You know it's a great way to meet new people, get out and about, and even get some exercise, not to mention competition  or your  health.but you may be wondering what golf equipment you really need to share this passion. 


How to choose your golf equipment?

The choice of golf equipment depends on a number of factors, such as level of play, morphology, budget and so on. If you're a beginner, it's advisable to choose golf clubs adapted to your level of play and morphology.

Do you have to rent or buy all your golf equipment?

Although many golf courses and sports stores offer golf clubs or carts for hire,it's better to have your own equipment and have it adapted to your needs.

It is important for most golfers to have custom-made golf clubs, as they improve their game by five strokes per game and hit longer, more accurate shots.

Not only will having custom-made golf clubs improve your game, but there's also something to be said for having equipment that feels familiar every time you pick it up.

Rental equipment, no matter how good, is not necessarily adapted to your size.

Don't hesitate to go to a Proshop to for a fitting.They use the latest technology to custom fit your clubs to improve clubhead speed, spin rate, launch angle and optimize ball velocity.

Équipement de golf à Annecy
  • The basic clubs you'll need
    • You'll need several clubs, including the putter,pitching wedge, sand wedge, driver, three, five, seven and nine irons, and three wood and possibly a hybrid wood..
      This is the minimum most golfers need for their game. However, some will buy a fairway wood, 3 or 5 wood, or a set of irons from a leading brand, although this is not a requirement.
  • The golf gloves
    • The first thing to remember when playing golf is to protect your hands.
      Your hands will blister after several swings without proper golf gloves.
      Golf gloves not only protect your hands, but also help you keep a firm grip on the club, even when you're sweating.
  • The golf shoes
    • You'll also need a pair of golf shoes.
      Golf shoes generally offer sufficient traction and grip to keep you in good shape as you swing.
  • The golf bag
    • You'll need a golf bag to carry your golf clubs.
      Since you're just starting out, your golf bag doesn't have to be complicated, but it does have to do the job.
      Imagine that your golf bag needs to hold 14 golf clubs, balls and enough water and snacks when you're out on the course. So you need a pretty sturdy bag.
  • The tees
    • You'll need tees to place your golf ball on the tees.
      Tees look like a wooden or plastic nail and are often brightly coloured.
  • The golf balls
    • It's a good idea, especially for beginners, to have a "stock of balls" in your bag. You can buy very expensive golf balls if you wish.
      However, you risk losing them if you're a beginner, so start with cheap golf balls if you can.

What is a golf accessory?

Golf accessories are indispensable for playing golf in the best possible conditions. These include golf balls, golf clubs, golf gloves, golf shoes and golf clothing.

What is a complete set of golf equipment ?

A complete set of golf equipment includes all the essentials needed to play the sport. It consists of golf clubs, including drivers, fairway woods, irons, wedges and a putter. A golf bag is also included to carry the clubs around the course. Specific golf balls, gloves for a better grip, adapted shoes for increased stability, and comfortable golf clothes are also part of the equipment.

Depending on individual preferences, other accessories such as rangefinders, umbrellas and ball markers can be added.

How much should you spend on golf equipment when you're just starting out?

Contrary to popular belief, not all golf equipment is expensive.

For a half-series, you'll need to budget around 200 to 300 Euros, including a stand bag.

It's still a modest investment to get properly equipped when you're just starting out.

In conclusion, for a beginner, the purchase of a half-series of golf clubs is the obvious choice.

Online golf stores offer the advantage of convenience, with the ability to shop 24/7.

Prices are often more attractive than in a Proshop, as intermediaries are eliminated.

However, it's important to choose a site like. My-swing.golfcarefully, because the quality of the products isn't always up to scratch. Don't hesitate to visit our. E shop to buy all the golf equipment you need on the Internet.

However, in our proshop you'll find all the major brands and all the equipment you need for golf, whether you're a beginner or an experienced player. We stock golf clubs, balls, manual and electric carts, and all the latest equipment so you can enjoy your favorite sport to the full.
