Why Not Take Up Golf Ready For The End Of Lockdown
Golf is a great sport to take up. It combines exercise with fresh air, and can be played at your own pace so isn’t too taxing if your fitness level isn’t that great when you first start out. In fact the popularity of golf with retirees both male and female confirms it’s also a sport that’s suitable for people of all ages too.
The main piece of kit you’ll need to play golf is a set of golf clubs, but you’ll also need to consider the following items too;
- Golf shoes.
- Golf balls.
- Golf bag.
- Golf-appropriate apparel.
- Minor accessories such as tees, ball markers, and a divot tool.
If you don’t own any golf clubs or equipment currently, there’s a great website where you can buy anything and everything you need, at great prices.
Scottsdale’s website is the go-to place for anything golf related. It has an amazing variety of golfing items and apparel from all the leading brands of the sport, and the site is really easy to navigate. Most items come with next day deliver too so you’re not having to wait to get your order.
Golfers back in the day used to all seem to own a brightly coloured diamond print sweater by either Pringle or Lyle & Scott, but these days there is much more choice of things to wear. The clothing section on the Scottsdale site alone is split into 14 sub categories with everything from Polo Shirts, Sweaters, Waterproofs right down to Hats, Belts and Socks.
You can sort the items by Brand, Colour and Size or alternatively they’ve created 3 individual sections where you can browse products from their most popular designers;
- J Lindberg
- Hugo Boss
- Gervin Green
If you’re serious about taking up golf, then you won’t get very far without a set of clubs!
On the Scottsdale Website, clubs have their own section, with the option of buying clubs individually or as a complete set, which may work out easier and cheaper if you’re just starting out and are not sure exactly what to buy.
The full club sets are split into 3 categories;
- and juniors too, so the whole family can get involved
or you could sort by brand;
If you buy a complete set of clubs, you’ll get the bag included, otherwise you’ll need to buy one separately. At Scottsdale you have a great choice of bags from 21 different brands.
You can also sort by type which will show you things like;
Bags with Stands
Pencil Bags (slimline bags)
..and much more.
Along with clubs, you won’t get very far playing golf without any golf balls.
Balls on the Scottsdale site come in 6 colours;
and 7 brands;
and can either be plain, with a logo or personalised
Whether you’re male, female or a child, right or left handed, Scottsdale have a whole section on their website dedicated to gloves.
Grass can be notoriously slippery when wet, so some golfers choose to wear spiked shoes when on the fairway. An alternative being to wear trainers purpose built for golf, with extra tread and grip.
Not surprisingly Scottsdale have a comprehensive selection of golf shoes on their website, from recognisable sports shoe manufacturers including;
and again they have options for Men, Women & Children.
Once you decide Golf is definitely the sport for you, you may want to add to your equipment. A great addition would be a Golf Trolley to take the strain away from carrying your clubs around the 18 holes.
A good, low cost starter option would be
GLIDE-TEK 1.0 GOLF PULL TROLLEY
Or if you are already a committed player the more expensive
STEWART X9 REMOTE ELECTRIC GOLF TROLLEY
With many other options in between you’re sure to find one to suit your budget.
The accessories section of the website is full of all the little extras you might be interested in buying such as;
- Drinks Bottles
- Ball & Club Cleaner
They also have a great selection of Practice Nets so you can improve your golfing ability away from the fairway.
Or you may need to hone in on your putting ability – in that case the
WELLPUTT 10 FOOT START PRACTICE PUTTING MAT – could be the thing for you.
If you’re just starting out with Golf you may be reluctant to invest a lot of money in clothing and equipment, until you confident it’s something you’ll be playing regularly.
The great news is Scottsdale has a packed Sale Section, where you can buy discounted clothing (sorted into different types), as well as clubs, again with separate links for the different club types. You can also search for other items by their category too.
At Scottsdale Golf they recognise the importance of looking after loyal customers and so have a great loyalty point scheme where you can earn as you spend.
