The Best Winter Golf Accessories

We’ve never had it better here at Five Lakes when it comes to playing golf during the winter months.

Like many golf courses in Essex this season tends to be quieter; making it the perfect opportunity to get a few practice rounds in.

The key to making the most out of winter golf is that you must be fully prepared. There are various types of gear and equipment designed especially to help you play better at this time of year. We have created a list of the best winter golf accessories to ensure you are at the top of your game.

 

Hand warmers

Wouldn’t it be ideal if you could keep your hands warm at all times before hitting that Putt? Try and carry some hand warmers in your pocket. Whether it be one-use disposables, reusable or rechargeable hand warmers you are guaranteed to have toasty mitts.

 

Yellow balls

When a glistening layer of frost covers our Essex golf courses, try using a yellow ball for better visibility. In terms of performance, they are exactly the same as white ones but are merely easier to spot among the leaves or frost. Another tip to remember is to warm your golf balls before you leave, as warm balls fly further.

 

All-weather gloves

They may not be the most aesthetically pleasing of garments, but all-weather gloves are a necessity. They do not only ensure a firm grip of the club but they also protect your hands from the elements. All major manufacturers now make fleece-lined gloves, which are perfect for those cold winter games.

Thermals

Any sportsperson will know the benefits of layering up during the winter. The more layers the better, so pull out your long johns and have your hats at the ready. The multi-layer concept is highly recommended for golfers and includes – a base layer for dry comfort, warmth and extra energy; a warm/cool layer for thermal regulation; and a shell layer for outer protection from the elements.

 

Footwear

Footing is vital to getting a good shot, so it’s important to make sure your footwear is up to standard. The risk of slippage is much higher during the winter months so we would recommend adapting your shoes accordingly. Changing your soft spikes to the original metal ones can make a vast difference and offer much more stability mid-swing.

With two great courses to choose from, Five Lakes is an excellent meeting venue for both budding and experienced golfers. Why not warm up after your freezing round of golf in our luxury steam room or sauna? Our fantastic leisure and spa facilities are included in most of our golf memberships.
