National Golf Lovers Day, sometimes called National Golf Day, is celebrated annually on October 4. The unofficial holiday is sponsored by the PGA, which hosts charitable events to mark the day. It’s a good excuse for golf lovers throughout the nation to hit the links, talk about golf in online forums or shop for new gear.
If you have been thinking about taking up the game, you’ll need to secure the gear required. The basic requirements are:
- Golf bag and set of clubs
- 12 to 24 golf balls At least six tees
- Spikes, if the course requires them (Note: most courses have banned metal golf spikes as rubber spikes cause less damage to the course.)
- Pencils for recording scores
- A coin or ball marker so you can mark your golf balls
- An absorbent towel to wipe down your clubs
Taking proper care of your golf equipment helps ensure that your gear will last a long time. Keep your gear clean, and make sure you store it properly.
