Gadgets for Golf

By: David Webster

Golfers need gadgets too! Do they need them? Most will say yes. Many of the little devices that add a new aspect to the game of golf without taking away from the traditional rules and etiquette of the game are welcomed by the novice as well as the professional golfer.

They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors with blinking light, and all the bells and whistles you can imagine. Many are made to add to the excitement or make the game seem more fun and alluring to newcomers. Do they work? Some of them do and others simple get in the way. Albeit, fantastically creative and very imaginative, the gadgets that have been introduced into the game of golf lately are a bit cumbersome and distracting to a game where silence and concentration, technique, and style have been the norm.

For some, these gadgets serve as a reminder of how much they should attend to their game more. They can be taken as an insult to injury at times. Many of the gadgets on the market arguably have some sort of annoying feature that make it inappropriate or just plain annoying on the course. Then there are the ones that have not electronic parts at all but are designed to take the painful parts of the game a little easier. One such tool is the groove cleaner. This handy little device is supposed to remove the dirt from the clubs in between shots.

Another good one is the divot repairing tool. This one claims to be one of the more essential items to have on the course or the suction ball picker upper. This one will save your back; you don't have to bend over to pick up your ball. Can't beat that one! They will improve your game, and make you a better player; or so we may think. The golfer who decides t use these gadget might be in for a big surprise once they set there foot on the course with one of these handy items.

Regardless of the gadget that is made for the course to improve your shot, make your game better, or save you from some of the nuances of the game; these gadgets are best left to those who just want to try something new or want to be the course pest. Because any good golfer is surely aware that nothing will improve a golf game like practice, practice, and more practice. It really doesn't matter what golfing gadget you choose to use.

Once you've got your gadgets sorted its time for you to book your next golf holiday. Bidford Grange in the UK is a popular destination, as is Foxhills Golf Club and Matfen Hall.
