If you are a keen golfer who does not mind paying extravagantly for the novelty, glamour or prestige value attached to any golf accessories irrespective of no intrinsic value, then you will never run out of something new or hilarious to fire your imagination. Although most of these items don’t contribute anything to improve your game, they could do a lot to improve your image and make you the envy and cynosure of all eyes. There are golfers I know who enjoy the fanfare they receive by adorning or exhibiting these novelties around as much as they enjoy winning a game of golf. A classic example of such a show of high-class golf culture is some people who go about in flashy golf carts fully decorated with numerous novelty accessories. If you have that kind of money to play about with, possibly you also may not like to miss out on all the fun that comes with the acquisition of novel gadgetry; be it for decoration of golf carts, motorized caddies, golf clubs, golf bags, or even personal attire such as tee shirts, pants and hats. For the benefit of those who like to enter this crazy world of golf novelties for kicks, we will be discussing a few such novelty golf accessories below:
Scoring a hole from one shot is a rarity. For some flamboyant golfers it is not only an occasion to celebrate, but also an event to immortalize. There is a tailor made novelty exclusively for such golfers available online and at some golf stores that comprise of a plaque and a kit to hold the magical golf ball to the plaque to keep as a showpiece in remembrance of this proud event. Other more conventional golfers may consider all this quite unnecessary and prefer to re-use the ball over and over in the hope of getting a few more of such lucky shots with it.
A “Tee-Card” is another novelty sold by a particular website. This would only be of use in the rare event of losing or forgetting to bring any golf tees to the course. It is a sturdy card made of high-strengthened plastic to the same size as a standard business card. When you place the card on the green and keep a golf ball over its center area, the card snaps at its center die cut tab transforming itself to a golf tee. As soon as the golf ball is struck away, it snaps back to become a normal business card again that can go back into your wallet. A tee-card can be reused about 100 times.
A “WOW” putter has many gadgets attached to its head that puts James Bond in the shade. The gadgets comprise of a measuring tape, level, horn, and a compass for understandable purposes, plus a rabbit foot too for luck! How many golfers actually use these gadgets to get the necessary data for better control over their putting shots is a matter for conjecture. If it is actually possible to process the data gathered off the gadgetry to effect your putting shots with 100% accuracy, then it could be worth its price several fold. However, the fact that this head really works despite being encumbered with some multiple gadgets attached to it, is in itself a big wonder!
Twenty-four carrot gold plated putters is the limit of frivolous extravagance. The sellers go further to the extent of inscribing message or slogans requested by the buyer on the golf club. The gold plating makes their price skyrocket; but still it is worth for some golfers who are dazed with their showpiece and prestige value.
When some down-to-earth golfers see any golf carts for example plying around decorated to the hilt with seemingly useless novelties, they may muse whether the golfer purchased all those novelty accessories, or whether the novelties have bought over the golfer! By going in for too many useless novelty accessories, you could become a hero, an idol or even an icon of super rich taste for some, while being an object of disgust, reticule or good laughing stock for others.
