They offer quick, accurate distances and are easy to wear while playing.  The Bushnell Neo Ion Watch is small, sleek, and comfortable and features a long battery life that lasts for 3 rounds. It’s also waterproof, should you decide to venture into that lake to find your ball.

Pre-loaded with over 35,000 courses in 30 countries, this watch features auto course and hole recognition, making use a breeze. The watch shows the distance to front, center, and back of the green as well as distances to hazards.

As more information about the negative effects of the sun on your eyes comes out, sunglasses are becoming more and more popular on the course. The original issues of comfort and difficulty of seeing contours have been solved by Oakley with the Holbrook sunglasses.

The 3 point fit system promises a comfortable fit that stays secure, even during your swing.  100% UV protection keeps your eyes safe and optimized peripheral vision and side protection of the 6 base lens curvature allow you to see more.

Finally, the optional Prizm lenses provide unprecedented control of light transmission maximizing contrast for seeing slopes and variations between fairway, rough, and green.

As an added bonus, the back of the buckle features a bottle opener for the times when beverage of choice doesn’t have twist off tops. To top it off, this belt is one-size-fits-most (up to 42 inches) and is reversible. Available in a range of colors, you can wear it with multiple outfits and save space in the closet.

BagBoy Express DLX Pro Pull Cart

Mark Twain once said that golf was “a good walk spoiled.” The BagBoy Express DLX Pro Pull Cart aims to change that statement.

This pull cart offers a lot of great features at only 12.7 lbs, fitting in the trunk of your car easily. Top Lok Technology, a patented bag to cart attachment, allows for a secure fit that resists bag twisting without the need for straps. The simple two-step fold with fold under front wheel allows for easy set-up, break down, and fit for transit. No tools are required.

Even better is how you don’t need to remove your bag to fold it. Simply pull it out of the car with the bag already on and hit the course.

Storage areas on the Express DLX Pro pull cart include a scorecard console with beverage holder, mobile device holder, golf ball storage, and an oversized mesh storage basket.  For those iffy weather days, there’s an integrated umbrella storage area with loop and storage notch.
