Many people consider golf an easy game to learn, but not everyone is actually good at golf. The basics of golf include hitting a ball with a club, trying hard to hit the ball directly into the hole on the green.The following are just a few of the equipment required – not just to protect the course and aid your game, but also to ensure an overall improved game experience for all the players involved.

EUIPMENT REQUIRED FOR GOLF ARE:

1. Ballsgolf ball

At its core, a golf ball is made from rubber. It is then covered with one or the other plastic, a thermoplastic resin called Surlyn, or urethane, which is a fake translucent compound that is likewise utilized in pesticides. Ultimately, the golf ball’s design will vary. It depends on the manufacturer and how many pieces are used in the construction. The golf ball is round in shape with minimum diameter of 1.68 inches and weighs 1.62 ounces. golf balls usually have a dimple pattern on their surface. This pattern promotes  better aerodynamics, helping to facilitate a ball’s spin and elevation when it is hit.

2.Golf clubs.clubs

A player usually carries several clubs during the game. There are three major types of clubs, known as woods,iron and putters. Woods are played for long shots from the tee or fairway, and occasionally rough, while irons are for precision shots from fairways as well as from the rough. Wedges are irons used to play shorter shots. Wedges are played from difficult ground such as sand or the rough and for approach shots to the green. Putters are mostly played on the green, but can also be useful when playing some approach shots. Putters have minimal loft, meaning the ball stays close to the ground when struck. There are several clubs you’ll need including the putter, the pitching wedge, the sand wedge, the driver, the three, five, seven, and nine irons, and the three wood. These are the minimum that most golfers need to play the game.

3.Ball markers

An artificial object when used to mark the spot of a ball to be lifted, such as a tee, a coin, an object made to be a ball-marker or another small piece of equipment. It is used when on the green, the ball may be picked up to be cleaned or if it is in the way of an opponent’s putting line; there are certain other circumstances in which a ball may be lifted. 

4.Teesgolf tee

It is commonly made with wood or plastic, tees are stuck in the ground in order to elevate a ball’s position, making it easier for the player to hit it. It is made up of a pointed bottom that is driven into the ground, and a head for balls to be placed on. Tees are only allowed when players are making the first stroke of each hole.

 

5.Golf bag.

A golfer typically transports golf clubs in a golf bag. Modern golf bags are made of nylon, canvas and/or leather, with plastic or metal reinforcement and framing. Virtually all bags are sectioned off with rigid supports at the top opening, both for rigidity and to separate clubs of various types for easier selection. More expensive bags have sleeves or pockets within the main compartment for each individual club, allowing for the desired club to be more easily removed from the bag and then returned without interference from the grips of the other clubs or internal hardware of the bag.

 

 

6.Gloves

Golfers also often wear gloves that help grip the club and prevent blistering. Gloves are sold individually and normally worn only on the players’ non-dominant hand, but it is not unheard of for a player to wear gloves on both hands to reduce chafing. The increased grip and control allows for harder swings to be made with more control, increasing distance.

7. Shoes

Many golfers wear special shoes. The shoes can be spikeless or with spikes attached to the soles. The spikes can be made of metal or plastic (plastic spikes are also known as “soft spikes”) designed to increase traction thus helping the player to keep his/her balance during the swing, on greens, or in wet conditions. In an attempt to minimize the severity of spike marks made on greens, many golf courses have banned metal spikes, allowing only plastic spikes during play.
