If you are in the market for some novelty headcovers, check out our post on the the best funny headcovers for drivers here.
There really is no shortage of golf accessories available which are designed to improve your game. And we’ve compiled a list below of must-haves and other cool equipment that’ll add some flair and functionality to your golf bag and game.
So keep reading to see some of the most popular and highest-rated golf accessories available on the market today.
1. Titleist DT TruSoft Golf Balls (One Dozen)
It goes without saying, but if you’re going to be hitting the golf course, you probably need some golf balls. And you’re not going to do much better than Titleist golf balls. The DT TruSofts are high-quality balls at an affordable price. They are designed to provide maximum distance, consistent flight, and a soft feel on contact.
Billed as Titleist’s softest model, the DT TruSofts has a new, larger compression TruTouch core, which promotes lower spin for more distance and a softer feel. The new TruFlex cover provides a soft feel around the greens, including increased spin for improvement in your short game.
Arguably Titleist’s top-rated golf balls are the Pro V1, though, you’ll pay more than twice as much for those per dozen. But if that model is more your style, check out the Titleist Pro V1 Golf Balls here.
Price: $20.91 (5 percent off MSRP)

2. GB Golf Second Skin Cabretta Leather Men’s Golf Glove
If you’re looking for a golf glove with a solid grip, Grip Boost Golf’s Second Skin Cabretta Leather Glove fits the bill. Made of the highest quality Cabretta leather on the palm, GB’s glove offers maximum comfort, grip and durability. The Arctic Mesh Technology backing wicks away moisture quickly and will keep your fingers dry and cool. The adjustable closure gives a secure fit and makes it easy to get on and off. It’s also currently less than $7; quite a bargain.
One drawback is this glove only comes in left-handed sizes at the moment. So left-handed golfers will have to look elsewhere for a glove. Perhaps take a look at the Callaway Men’s Dawn Patrol Golf Glove, which is available in both hands. Made of all leather, it’s incredibly soft and features perforations for extra breathability and moisture reduction.
Price: $6.64 (56 percent off MSRP)

3. Callaway Leather Scorecard Holder
You might not play like a pro yet, but you’ll look like one with the Callaway Leather Scorecard Holder to keep track of your round. The outer cover is made of soft, synthetic leather, which flips open to hold a standard scorecard.
The scorecard offers nice size, but can fit comfortably in your back pocket, in your golf cart, or zipped into your golf bag. It has a sturdy writing surface that makes it easy to record your scores without having to lean against something to make clear and legible numbers. It also has an inside loop which can hold a pencil and makes a great gift idea.

4. FlexiFreeze Freezable Golf Bag Cooler
The FlexiFreeze Freezable Golf Bag Cooler is a perfect and convenient way to keep your drinks cold on the course. How the bag works is it has 60 FlexiFreeze ice cubes built-in to the sides of the cooler. These ice cubes are made of purified, filtered water with no chemicals. Then you put the bag in your freezer to chill the ice cubes. And when you’re ready to head to the course, add your beverages (it holds four 12-ounce cans) and you’re set.
The bag, which straps easily and conveniently to your golf bag, will keep them cold for 8 to 10 hours; plenty of time to get your 18 holes in. The FlexiFreeze Cooler is easy to clean and is reusable, and it’s currently just $20.
If you want a model with even more room, check out the Golf Bag Cooler by Caddy Daddy. This one holds 6 12-ounce cans and has a separate pocket to hold extra gear, equipment, and/or valuables. Learn more about the Caddy Daddy Golf 6 Pack Golf Bag Cooler here.

5. Golf Brush and Club Groove Cleaner by Voplop
Keeping your clubs clean doesn’t only make them look more attractive, but it also helps your game. And the Voplop Golf Brush and Club Groove Cleaner will get the dirt out of those irons, which will lead to better contact, spin, and shot consistency. And it will do so at a bargain price.
The brush has nylon bristles to clean woods and shoes; iron bristles for your irons, wedges, and hybrids; and a spike to help you get deep into your grooves as well as the spikes on the bottom of your shoes for heavy mud build-up. The club cleaner has a carabiner clip so you can easily attach it to your golf bag and features a retractable 2-foot zip-line cord so you can clean your clubs and shoes without removing it.
It’s available in 7 different colors — Black, Blue, Green, Orange, Red, Ultra Black (pictured above), and Yellow — and comes with a 60-day money back guarantee and a 12-month replacement warranty.

6. SnakeBelly Golf Ball Holder with Quick-Draw Release
This is a cool little gadget that makes it easy as can be to get to you golf balls. The Golf Ball Holder by SnakeBelly attaches to the top of your bag with a clip, then load 3 golf balls into the storage magazine. Then you simply pull the ball from the bottom like a cup dispenser or out of the top. SnakeBelly calls it their Quick-Draw Release technology.
The idea behind it is to get the balls you like to use during your round readily available. So if you do lose one, you won’t have to fish through your golf ball pocket in your bag to find one of your favorites. The clip itself is rubber-coated and the dispenser has a protective anodized aluminum finish. It probably fits best on stand and carry bags.

7. Martini Golf 3-1/4 Inch Durable Plastic Tees 5-Pack
Raise your hand if you’re tired of breaking tees all the time … yeah, me too. Then maybe you should look into Martini Golf plastic tees, which claim to be “darn near unbreakable.” Now they only come in a pack of 5, but they’re made of durable polymer resin blend and can be used over and over.
They’re 3-1/4 inches long and feature a large cup for ball placement, and are designed to give you longer, straighter drives with less resistance. We could all use that consistency in our game.
They also come in over 10 different sizes and conform to USGA rules.
But if you are a traditionalist and like getting your tees wooden and in bulk, check out the 2-3/4 inch Pride deluxe golf tees, which come in 50-, 100-, and 500-count.

Simple, efficient, original, and very affordable. The towel itself is made of a microfiber/cotton blend, which is extra absorbent and versatile.
Machine washable, the towel is available in three colors — Black (pictured above), Navy Blue, and Masters Green. It attaches easily to your golf bag via a carabiner clip.
