Tips & Guides
You may be tempted to buy quite a lot of trendy, eye catching golf accessories that are freely available in golf goods stores and online in order to impress and be one step above your buddies. Before you waste your money on a lot of crap, consider whether you have a proper golf bag to safeguard your golf clubs from misuse, damage and even possible theft. Golf clubs are highly prized assets and no other flashy accessories would matter any more if you no longer have good clubs to play with. So take every possible step to preserve them in peak condition over long years bearing in mind that prevention is always better than the cure. There is no use crying over spilled milk. Let us consider some precautions that can be taken to prevent the worst from happening.
Number one priority in this context is a good golf club bag with reinforced walls made of some metal or other sturdy material. Just imagine the horror of seeing your golf bag with all those clubs falling off and getting run over by the golf cart itself! You should ensure that the outer walls of the bag could absorb the brunt of such impacts in such an eventuality while safeguarding the clubs inside from getting crushed or damaged.
If you search well enough, you could find golf bags made to highly innovative designs with very sturdy materials that remain solid and impenetrable in the face of most common accidents that befall golf clubs. There is also the menace posed by potential thieves to contend with. You could get a combination lock fixed to the bag if it does not already have one to overcome the threat of any clubs being pilfered from the bag; unless somebody steals the entire bag, which is very unlikely. As a further safeguard against such wholesale type of theft, you could fasten the golf bag to the golf cart with another lock or two. All this may seem quite expensive; but hardly anything if you think in terms of the comparative cost you stand to suffer in case of possible damage or theft; since you would have obviously invested quite a tidy sum on your golf clubs.
Don’t be so pessimistic as to think that no useful purpose would be served by putting your name and contact number on the golf bag. There is a chance of getting back your golf bag intact if it is picked up by a reasonably honest person; in the most unlikely event that you lose the entire bag. The most conceivable way it could happen is if your bag were to get mixed up with that of another golfer having the same identical case (another unlikely coincidence!). However, it does not cost you much to do this little bit to be prepared for the most unlikely and the worst happenings. If the worst were to happen, at least you would not have to regret over not having put your name on the bag.
Golf Clubs, especially of highly sophisticated types would have cost a very big amount of money that nobody would like to lose overnight due to an accident or theft. If you have any further apprehensions on this account, you may explore the possibility of securing at least your golf clubs with an appropriate insurance policy. Apart from what has been stated here, you may try any other improvisations that you can think of with the primary aim of safeguarding your high priced golf clubs.
