Are you missing one or more clubs from your set that could help you advance your game? Maybe you’ve played with your beginner’s bag for a while and are starting to see where you have gaps in your collection. Or perhaps you’re a more seasoned golfer looking to supplement your set. Here are a few specialized clubs that will improve your game the next time you hit your favourite Mississauga and Oakville area golf courses.
Hybrid: instead of struggling to control your shots with a fairway wood or a long iron, why not make your life—and swing—easier with a hybrid club. These clubs combine the larger and heavier head of a wood and the shaft of an iron to make a club that’s easier to control without compromising distance or trajectory. These useful clubs also make getting out of the rough almost seem like a piece of cake.
Gap wedge: your set probably came with a pitching wedge, and maybe you already got yourself a sand wedge to get out of bunkers, but there’s still a gap that needs to be filled. For shots that need higher trajectory than you can get with your pitching wedge and more distance than possible with your sand wedge, a gap wedge is what you need.
Putter: here’s where you can let your personality shine through. From traditional blades to driver-like mallets, there are many different types of putters to choose from. The best one for you is the club you feel best with. There’s no scientific evidence that a certain shape or size of putter works better than others, so the key here is to find a putter that feels good in your hands and is fun to use.
Ball retriever: while it’s not a club, this is an important tool to keep in your golf bag. A telescopic ball retriever allows you to find your lost ball easily, and can help you avoid getting wet when your ball lands in the pond. Choose one that has a cup scoop instead of just a circle to make picking up your ball even easier.
Now that your golf bag is stacked, it’s time to try out your new clubs on local Mississauga and/or Oakville area golf courses. Located in Burlington, Crosswinds Golf & Country Club offers an 18-hole championship course with amazing views of the beautiful Niagara escarpment.
