With all the stuff out on the market, just how are you supposed to go about figuring out which golf accessories are worth your hard-earned money and which ones aren’t?

Top 10 Must Have Golf Accessories for 2022
Caddie Buddy Golf Cart Steering Wheel Phone Mount
If you’re like me, your smartphone is always by your side. That’s even the case on the golf course nowadays.
As salty as it might make some of the purists out there, your smartphone comes in handy all the time out on the course. Whether it’s streaming your favorite music or getting the yardage over the lake on that par five you think you can reach in two, your smartphone makes life on the links easier.
The trouble for a lot of folks is trying to keep their phone secure in the cart as they meander down the fairway. Some smartphones are too big to fit in the cup holder. Trying to rummage through the cubby is a pain. And we’ve all left our phone on the seat only to have it fly out somewhere between the first tee and fifth green.
That’s where the Caddie Buddy Steering Wheel Phone Mount comes in. This device attaches easily to the steering wheel of any golf cart, and secures your smartphone in a place where it’s both safe, and easy to access.
Even better, this accessory comes with a spot for your pencil and ball mark. It also rotates allowing you easy access to your scorecard to add up all the bets your buddies owe you.
Though this accessory is simple in design, its design and utility are ingenious.
Mr. Heater Golf Cart Heater MH4GC
Maybe you’re like a lot of folks reading this article and experiencing the False Spring we always get at the beginning of February in the northern climes.
If so, chances are you’ve already got a round or two under your belt in 2022. As nice as those 45-degree bluebird days seem, they can get cold out on the golf course. And we all know that trying to play when your teeth are chattering and your bones are creaking isn’t much fun.
Having the Mr. Heater MH4GC in your cart is the answer.
Even though this heater is small enough to fit in the cup holder of your cart, it puts out some serious warmth – 4,000 BTUs to be exact.
Unlike any other cart heater on the market, the MH4GC comes with a built-in oxygen depletion system. Also included is a stability mount that keeps the heater in place no matter the terrain you find yourself in.
Goodbye cold, hello warm!
Bushnell Wingman GPS Speaker
We’ve seen our fair share of golf speakers here at Golfer’s Authority, but the Bushnell Wingman GPS is one of our favorites.
To start, the sound the Wingman puts out is phenomenal. It’s crystal clear and can be heard across the fairway.
On top of pairing easily to your favorite streaming station, it gives you accurate yardages on demand. That’s made possible by the Bushnell App that allows you to see aerial views of the entire hole and plan your strategy accordingly. Just push the button at the top of the speaker and it will tell you the yardage to whatever feature you have picked out.
It’s easy to attach this speaker to your cart too. It comes with Bite Magnet Technology that holds it securely to any metal surface.
While there are plenty of quality speakers to be found, the Bushnell Wingman’s features go above and beyond anything else.
NSD Power Essential Spinner Gyro Hand Grip Strengthener
Anyone that’s played golf for a while knows the beating your hands and wrists take during a round. As such, it’s imperative that you keep them strong. And let’s be honest, you probably don’t incorporate hand and wrist exercises into your workout routine at the gym.
That’s Ok! The Power Essential Grip Strengthener is here to save the day. Small enough to fit in your pocket or on your office desk, you can fire this bad boy up whenever you want.
To turn it on, just pull the string. When you do, the inner workings start to spin at rates up to 15,000rpm. Hold on tight!
Golfers say that you’ll begin to feel the burn in less than a minute and your hands and wrists will be all the stronger for it.
Built to last and easy to take anywhere, there might not be a better way to strengthen your hands and wrists than this simple device.
Suncast Golf Bag Garage Organizer Rack
If you’re an avid golfer, you probably have a hard time admitting just how much “stuff” you have. My wife gives me grief all the time about how much room all my golf gear takes up.
Thankfully, the folks at Suncast came up with a way to keep it all organized in a confined space. It’s their Golf Bag Garage Organizer Rack.
The rack easily stores two bags of clubs. There are also multiple shelves where you can store everything from balls, to shoes, to gear for inclement weather.
A bin on the top of the rack is the perfect place for all those smaller items that are easy to lose.
Built from high-grade steel, this rack is built to last and will free up space wherever you choose to put it.
Spornia Pop Up Golf Chipping Net
If you ask any reputable instructor where amateurs can most quickly improve their game, they’ll tell you around the greens. In fact, it’s estimated that more than 75% of your shots come inside of 100 yards.
The good news is that you don’t have to go outside to work on your chipping and pitching.
Spornia’s Pop Up Golf Chipping Net can be set up in your living room, back yard, and just about anywhere else.
Its design is cutting-edge. Patented lining in the center of the net shoots balls back toward you saving you the trouble of having to retrieve them yourself.
The framing is reinforced by protective padding that’s meant to absorb the shock of hard-hit shots that stray offline.
Easy to use and store, and built to stand plenty of abuse, this is one of the most innovative hitting nets on the market.
TruGroove Golf Club Groove Sharpener
Have you ever wondered how the Pros get those wedges to dance all around the hole and stop on a dime? Sure, their techniques are flawless. But they also get new wedges every week. . . for free.
For most of us mere mortals, that’s not an option. That’s why keeping your grooves sharp and clean is so important.
In comes the TrueGroove Sharpener. Constructed from industrial-grade steel, this sharpener won’t wear out after a couple of uses.
It also features an ergonomic, anti-slip handle and protective case.
There’s no better choice if you want to extend the life of your clubs and maintain control on the shots that matter most.
Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors
Technology has forever changed the way we play and learn the game of golf. And nobody knows that better than Arccos. Their finely tuned sensor system allows you to track all the important information for every golf shot you hit. How does it all work? It starts with sensors that fit snugly into the butt end of your grips. As you swing, the sensors track all the data and relay it to the app on your smartphone.
The data is then cataloged and allows you to track your progress over time. You have access to tour-level stats and can easily identify strengths and weaknesses in your game.
If the best players in the world are using this kind of data to get better, shouldn’t you?
Rukket Three-Piece Golf Bundle
You can’t always make it to the driving range to beat a bucket of balls. But you can practice in your backyard whenever you want, for free. All you need is the Rukket Three-Piece Golf Bundle. The bundle has a 10’ X 7’ hitting net with metal stakes to hold it in place, an artificial turf hitting mat, and a sleek carrying case.
The net and mat don’t require any tools and can be set up in a matter of minutes. Simple, functional, and a value that’s hard to beat, you can’t go wrong with the Rukket Three-Piece Golf Bundle.
SelfieGolf Golf Swing Phone Holder
Tour Players pay their coaches absurd amounts of money to travel with them to every tournament and critique their every swing. Most of us don’t have that luxury. We’re left to figure things out on our own and that can be tough. However, the SelfieGolf Phone Holder might be just what you’re looking for.
The device can be placed in the ground and features a mount that holds your phone in place as you record your swing. A variety of clamps and adapters fit any phone and are easy to use.
It’s built from the sturdiest of materials too.
