The first thing you have to buy to be able to go to practice is a glove. Right-handed people will need a left hand glove and left-handed one for the right hand.
The gloves can be of synthetic material or of skin, but in both cases they will be very fine to not lose touch or sensibility.
The most important thing about a glove, mainly when we are learning to play, is that it is reinforced, especially in the fleshy part of the palm of the hand.
Then come the sticks. At first we’ll just need a stick. You can rent it every time you go to practice, but if you rent a stick 15 times to 2 euros means 30 euros, and for that money you can buy one. Another option, as we have already seen, is to buy it second-hand. It is now easier with the proliferation of used-item stores even in specialized golf shops.
Although taking into account that soon we will need more sticks, which can also be a good option, is to purchase a set of half-game sticks and transport bag.
How much do I have to spend on my outfit?
An excellent golf outfit is what all the excellent players need. A good golf kit is what good players need. A regular golf outfit is what most of us need.
The most dramatic change that has occurred in the golf industry over the last twenty years has been in the equipment.
The current teams are phenomenal. There are balls for each type of player. Bats are investigated, designed, and manufactured for maximum performance. Gloves, shoes, bags and golf clothes are made by putting the utmost attention to detail.
We cannot say that golf teams will not make any difference in any player’s game. Obviously, we have some advantage when we carry a better team. Especially when we already know how to handle them.
The decision to buy the new golf team could be based on your ability to play golf, your financial situation, your goals playing golf, or a little three.
We can see the purchase of a new golf team in two categories. If we have more than 1,000 euros to spend on the new golf team continue reading right in the next section. If we have less than 1,000 euros to spend then go to the Section Golf kit for the average amateur.
The golf team for those who have a little extra money:

The golf team for the average amateur
Most of us can survive with a limited team. The minimum complete equipment is a driver, a 3 wood, 3 to 9 irons, sand, putter, tees, balls, shoes and a bag. The additional equipment that is good to have includes wood 5 and 7, umbrella, pitching wedge, lob wedge, rain gear, cart, etc.
However, it is not necessary to have the last cry in equipment. When you start doing more than one round of 18 holes a year around the 70 blows buy a good team. If I had any surplus money you would probably buy one or two last generation products.
Now, if the average blows per round is between 85 and 120 we don’t need a team at the last scream. Choose a game of clubs at a good price in a store, a friend, or a second hand advertisement. This may represent an amount of between 250 and 350 euros.
Any ball will be valid for your game. Until you begin to break the barrier of the 80 blows you can play the balls that are on offer or those you find on the golf course.
I think some people need last-line equipment. If you can afford the luxury then buy. However, remember that buying state-of-the-art equipment will never make you break the 100-pound barrier and it’s probably a waste of money. Spend your money better in class.
