A golf bag full of golf clubs might just be a golfer’s most prized possession. Vast amounts of money can be invested into the contents of a golf bag. So here are some accessories to personalize your golf bag.
When you first get your golf bag and golf clubs, you should do everything you can to personalize it; make it your own.
This will lead to familiarity with your clubs and therefore more efficiency when you are out playing the game. It will also give you a real sense of ownership.
We will discuss some of the accessories to personalize your golf bag you can buy. This will increase its aesthetic appeal or its functionality and usefulness.
By putting all of your clubs into the golf bag, it’s unlikely that you have filled it up. There will be more room in the various compartments and pockets that decorate the outside of the bag.
You should not leave these empty. Instead, fill them up with anything you could need out on the course.
Our first choice is the Bag Boy Solar Charger to keep all those necessary electronics we carry charged.
$34.99 (Retail $44.99)
- Lightweight 2 in 1 solar charger and power bank charges electronic devices via sunlight and incandescent light
- Portable battery charger bank powers up to 2 USB based devices simultaneously
- Powerful 5000 mAh battery
- Only 5 hours to full charge the solar charger via USB
- Built-in LED flashlight by double-tapping power button
No round of golf is complete without a Callaway Hybrid Laser Rangefinder
This Hybrid Laser Rangefinder combines the convenience of a GPS system with the pin-seeking precision of a laser all in one compact device.
Whether you’re trying to hit your approach to the middle of the green or attack the pin, this hybrid rangefinder maximizes distance information from tee to green.
The laser features Pin Acquisition Technology that locks into the pin from up to 300 yards away with superior accuracy of +/- 1 yard. Additionally, 6x magnification allows you to range from 5-1,000 yards, allowing you to scan the landscape for various targets.

The next item is for those days when the weather is just not right, it is the Bag Boy USA Wind Vent Umbrella
This umbrella provides maximum coverage and features a double vented canopy system that prevents inversion in high winds.
The next item we would suggest is the Callaway 15th Club Pocket Ball Retriever
Gone are the days where you’re fishing for your golf balls out of the water that you just hit in. This Callaway Pocket and Ball Retriever comes in a 6’ length.
Other golfers won’t even know you have one in your bag—it includes a dual zip head cover making it look like any other club you have in your golf bag!
The Callaway Ball Retriever has an ergonomic sure-grip that makes it easy to hold on to while you’re fishing your ball out of the water, or trying to grab it in those hard to reach areas.
It contains a stainless steel retriever mechanism and has a high quality aluminum alloy that helps minimize bending when it’s fully extended. Plus, the pocket version fits nicely in most bag apparel pockets.
Stop dirtying up your nice khaki golf pants by bending down near the trees to reach your hidden golf ball. Get this as one of the accessories to personalize your golf bag
No more stepping in the water to fetch your ball.
The Callaway Ball Retriever is perfect for any penalty shot that lands you anywhere but where you want to be!

You should also include all of the obvious choices if you didn’t already – golf balls in large quantities, tees, and any other items you frequently use when golfing.
Once you have all of the practical accessories for golf bags taken care of, you can start to get into the more “fun” novelty items.
There is no shortage of things you can attach to your golf club, whether it’s to get a laugh from your friends or simply to remind you of something. Little plush keychain-like items can be attached at many points all across the golf bag.
This could be a small stuffed golf ball, or some sort of figurine. If there is something that you would like to have, it should come to mind immediately.
You shouldn’t have to strain yourself to think of something to decorate your golf bag with.
If you want an easy way to identify your golf bag, you can have your name attached to it somehow. This could be in the form of some sort of embroidery project (do you have a girlfriend, wife, or daughter who embroiders as a hobby? Maybe it’s time to ask for a favor) or simply some scribbles with a sharpie.
It doesn’t matter how you get it done. But, it’s very important that you have some indication that the golf bag is yours in the event that it gets lost on the golf course.
When someone recognizes your name and returns your expensive clubs, you will be glad that you put the name on the bag.
There is no limit to the ways that you can personalize your golf bag with accessories. However, the keyword here is “personalize”.
All I can do is offer you a few hints to get you started in the right direction. From there you can decide on what exactly defines you as a person; and what can help you out while you are golfing.
If we missed any items that you feel would be deemed as a great golf bag accessory, let us know so that it can be added in the future.
You won’t be able to fit all these items in your golf bag; but you want to make sure to have them at least in the car and easy for you to grab when you need them.
