Best Golf Accessories: Quick Menu
We all love to get our hands on some new clubs but often it’s the smaller and most convenient things that can add plenty to both your game and your enjoyment of it. Ultimately, the best golf accessories make our lives as golfers easier whether that be in terms of having a good golf towel, an umbrella that can deal with the wind and rain, or other accessories like training aids and gadgets.
Clearly, not only do we need accessories that help us out on the golf course, but we also need things to help make us better players, or make us feel good about ourselves. Oh and we would be remiss for not mentioning golf travel accessories too such as shoe bags and travel bags to protect our pride and joys. A good golf accessory that makes things easier in the airport or train station is worth its weight in gold. As such here is a list of the best golf accessories that you might want to include in your bag or, perhaps, maybe a new bag itself. Additionally take a look at some of our other guides on golf equipment as well - such as the best golf tops, best golf shoes or the best golf bags.

The Rapsodo mobile launch monitor literally turns your smartphone into a launch monitor to give you a wide range of numbers like carry distance, ball speed, club speed, smash factor, launch angle, and launch direction.
It works in conjunction with the free Rapsodo app on your iOS smartphone indoors or outdoors. After setting up an account and logging in, players just need to rest their phone in the front slot and position it approx. six feet behind the ball. There are a number of good features. For example when you hold the club in front of your phone’s camera, it will automatically record the club you’re hitting, which worked most of the time but you can input it manually very easily.
Once you’ve selected the club and start hitting shots, the Rapsodo MLM captures video of you hitting and displays shot tracer-style graphics on the screen, which we found to be accurate most of the time, as well as certain data points like the ones we mentioned above. Additionally it’s compact size and lightweight design make it easily portable in the carry case and the LED system lets you know when you’re ready to hit.

There’s lots to like about this product and we could all do with some improved stats on the greens. This features a parabolic ramp and only a ball that is rolled on the perfect line and pace (18 inches past the hole) will stick in the micro-target. So it really helps you to focus on your pace rather than just dribbling or bolting it in. The three smaller dots can act as a narrower target or to allow you to adjust to slight breaks in a putt. The micro-target has a new pop down target which has been introduced to add a more vibrant target.
It can be folded away and taken anywhere which is one of the clearest signs of a great golf accessory, let along a training aid that will undoubtedly help you hole more putts. We also like the fact it comes in four colors.
