What to Pack for Cooler Golf Days

There is no escaping the fact that the weather isn’t quite as warm as it was, in fact there is already a distinct chill in the air despite it only being mid-September. There is however no need to let this cooler weather put you of playing, with a little bit of advance preparation there are a few things that you can pack that should help to make sure that the cold doesn’t make your golf game fall under par.

Keep your hands warm

If you have ever played it the cold weather than you will know that once the cold gets into your fingers, your grip on the club is compromised and your rhythm is lost. Whilst walking is undeniably a great way of keeping warm, there will inevitably be times when you need to stand around on the course and it is during these times that the cold can really seep into your fingers. It is therefore important to make sure that you pack something in your golf kit to keep your hands warm. You could purchase a pair of cart mitts for those extra cold days, they offer you a fantastic insulated glove option and many pairs come with the added convenience of Velcro straps that allow you to leave them ready and waiting on the cart handle for when you have finished playing.

Alternatively, you can get hand warmers that stay in your pockets which are perfect for whilst you are standing still, or you could also consider wearing two pairs of gloves.
