What to pack for your major golfing holiday?

Your epic golfing trip will remain short if you forget to pack the essentials. “Essentials” is not a debatable term. The way a beach holiday calls for beach towels and sunscreen lotion. Golfing holidays call for crisp t-shirts and clubs that are necessary to complete your trip.

<b>What are essential golfing items you should carry?</b>

You may be going for a friendly tournament or just to chill on the greens; you will need your set of clubs and a sturdy bag to begin the trip. Personal equipment, which you use each day, beats all branded stuff that the local shops will try to sell you. Multi-day packing for a golfing trip is a little more challenging as you will have to think about multiple sets of playing clothes, shoes and accessories.

<b>Carry weather specific gear</b>

While travelling to the Golfing Getaways to Portugal, check the weather during your stay. Stay updated with local rain forecast to remain dry and in form. If you are expecting rain, pack moisture proof clothing and accessories to keep your gameplay in beautiful form.

<b>Charge it up</b>

Electronics are a must wherever you travel. After all, you would want to capture the moment you make the 18th hole. Make a list of essential electronics including your power banks and chargers. Do not forget your trimmer and shaver in a hurry. You do not want to play golf looking like Hagrid. It is not Quidditch.

<b>Clothing options</b>

Carry simple clothing that will help you play. Make a checklist of protective wear including hats, caps, pullovers and rain jackets. Include tees and shirts depending on their material and the weather condition. Always pack more upper garments than bottoms. Many resorts have a policy of formal wear in their lounges, diners and courses. Check their guest dress code requirements before you start packing. If their website does not mention any dress code, call their reception and ask for specifics.

<b>Personal Essentials</b>

Personal items include credit card, cash, licenses, passport and your wallet. You should always have a “Personal Essentials” checklist handy while packing for any trip. This will help you cross-check your items. Always keep an extra slot for the tickets. Keep your contact information for the resorts, course instructor and transportation on you. Always prepare for the time when your phone conks off without prior notice. You do not want to be stuck with your luggage and clubs, on foreign land, without an address or contact number.

Personal toiletries you must always carry

Always include minimal toiletries in your bags although the resorts promise premium bathing and care essentials. Bring an extra towel, some Q-tips, sun tanning or sun protection lotion (Depending on where you are going). Never leave behind your prescription meds. Foreign countries might not have the exact medication you are using now, and this will mess with your general performance on the course. Carry an extra pair of eyeglasses, since you never know what may happen on the course.
