What do you have in your golf bag?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I recently started golfing and have no idea what I should be bringing with me.
I mean my bag has at least 8 pockets....so now I gotta figure out what I'm going to fill them with.

For example, how many balls/tees/do you have in your bag? Is there anything extra you carry with you that I might overlook?

Thank in advance

Re: What do you have in your golf bag?

At least 18 tees.... a dozen golf balls, 2 towels, one of me, one for the clubs, bottle water, pen, ball markers. I put my headcovers in the pockets, so I make sure I don't over stuff in the first place. Once I start, I don't carry my keys, wallet on me, I put in into one of the pockets.

Also a divot tool for the green, maybe a club brush to clean the dirt off of your clubs while your playing. I have a weighted donut in my bag (one that you slip on the end of your club to warm up pre-round)...

My golf bag is more packed full of essentials than my CURRENT camping gear. A golfing buddy of mine even made a remark similar to that.

Besides all the basic necessities such as a dozen of golf balls, a couple of tees, bottled water and isotonic drinks, powerbars, backup gloves, etc. I also keep wet and dry tissues with me in the bag.

Re: What do you have in your golf bag?

I'll generally carry 6-12 balls. I don't really destroy them during the round, but I do occasionally lose them; my home course has a water trap on the 10th, for example. I've also been known to lose them in the trees, but that practice has (thankfully) narrowed down. If a ball behaves poorly, I will put it in a separate pocket and play another one as soon as legally possible.

Other essentials:
- Tees
- Water bottles (I carry 2x32 oz + 1x24 oz; 24 oz is clipped to bag)
- 3 gloves (I can get away with one during a round, but I like to change if my grip slips. At the range, I need 3, because I sweat into my glove when I hit for 15-20 minutes without removing it).
- G-clip (ball marker, divot repair tool, tee holder, fits onto my belt)
- sunglasses case
- towels (clipped onto the bag)
- sunscreen
- various foodstuffs ( Clif bar, etc )
- pocket for my wallet, phone (off!), and keys
- club scrub (for cleaning clubs during the round, typically done while waiting)
- spare pencils and a sharpie

There's this one time my friend was playing against my other friend for money. Apparently he forgot to put his cell phone in the bag, instead he put it in his side pocket. Then when he was going to put 3 footer for par just after he reached the end of back stroke, his cell phone set off and with vibration as well. He was so pissed off and then picked the phone and yelled like, "WHAATTT??" It turned out to be his girlfriend calling just to ask how was his golf round doing.

Sorry, an off topic post. I thought I'd share the story.

Re: What do you have in your golf bag?

I am a minimalist. I obviously carry balls (anywhere from 6 to a dozen) 10 tees (zero friction tees, they rarely break), ball marker, towel, and 2 gloves, all in an easy to carry Scratch sac. I used to carry around a tour bag, thinking it looked cool, and would load it with about 30 pounds of crap I would never use. My current arrangement suits me much better and will preserve my back .
