There are many golf bags available, some designed for

fashion, some for utility and some that combine both

features. There are big bags, bigger bags and bags so

big that they would keep everything I need for a long

weekend vacation in one of the side pockets!


Generally speaking, you need a bag just large enough

to hold your clubs, extra balls, your glove, tees, car

keys, extra pencils, ball markers, a ball retriever,

sunscreen, a windbreaker and a large umbrella.


It is also a good idea to have a packet of tissues, a

band-aid or two, and if you play courses where insects

are a problem, a can of bug repellent comes in very



A small pack of baby wipes come in very handy; in your

bag they get warmed by the heat, so when you get

sweaty or a sand trap covered you with sand, a nice

warm wipe can be very refreshing.

I happen to be allergic to bees, hornets and wasps, so

my Epipen is an important addition to my bag. I am

also hypoglycemic so I carry Lifesavers, which has to

be replaced several times throughout the year because

they tend to melt.


One item that doesn’t need to be in your golf bag is

your cell phone. If you must carry it, turn off the

ringer as a courtesy to other players. If you must use

it, be aware of others who might be taking a swing or

putting their ball. Be considerate!


Having these items in your golf bag should provide

everything you will need, even in a minor emergency

(like a blister) or a major inconvenience, like a

sudden rainstorm. Being prepared makes the game a

great deal more fun.
