Whether you wanna maximize your gameplay with a few essential disc golf accessories or pack everything to feed the 5000, here’s a few items that will prepare you for all eventualities. Some of these would also make nice gifts.
No point having any of the kit in this list unless you’ve got a bag to bring everything to the course with. Doesn’t need to be big or expensive. You can see a massive list of the best disc golf bags on the market right now in our post here.
If you want to excel in all types of terrain you want the right shoes. Yes you can wear your own non-golf specific sports shoes but can they handle mud, slick grass, slopes, rock slabs, roots and wooded areas? And all on the same day? Are your current shoes breathable or do you sweat like a pig during the summer when you’re only half way round the course?
You can get terrain specific and whats even better multi shifting terrain specific shoes because lets be serious for a moment disc golf courses change from wet or dry grass to concrete teepads to woodlands and your shoes have to be able to keep up with the territory and conditions. Take a look at the best disc golf shoes available right now in this post.
Before you hit the course remember to pack some liquids. And what better way to keep them cool than with a la large environmentally friendly filter water bottle like the Nalgene. Keeps cool in the summer heat, the BPA free plastic is lighter than stainless steel but tastes even better for longer if the water bottle holder on your bag is insulated.
Available up to 6z oz -Now just make sure you’ve chosen a bag that can fit your Nalgene in.
If you prefer tougher stainless steel bottle to drink from a hydroflask is the way forward. Keeps drinks ice cold or piping hot but not at the same time 🙂
For those of you who prefer the Yeti, its hard to beat a vacuum insulated bottle with a chug cap so you can take a quick swig without opening the bottle. Versatile.
Not that you’ll be playing in -20 but if you want something a little larger and more heavy duty a water bladder like this can handle extremes of temperatures from -20 to 50 degrees celsius. For those days with a 32 oz don’t cut it. Strap it to your back for easy carry or stick it inside your bag.
If you want to go full force on hydration, this insulted backpack from Gelindo will supply your need. This BPA free leakproof backpack has a large reservoir for storing ice and loads of zippered pockets to carry your apparel and snack.
Go light on water storage and enhance what you have with these electrolyte pouches. Replenish lost minerals and hydrate with vit c, zinc, and magnesium. Come back fresher to the course tomorrow.
To help you out without leaving the house one of the best ways to improve your game is with your own disc golf basket. You don’t need the most top of the range PGDA approved basket if you just want to practice your putting skills.
Obviously with a more robust basket you can stick one in your backyard or take to a nearby field and practice hitting the basket from 2-300ft out. To help you decide your best options read our review of the best disc golf baskets to rep with.
A towel to keep you sweat proof or to clean your discs? How about 1 of each – plus you can get a little Towch that’s both a disc pouch and a towel. Just like this
Is your grip letting you down? Does it get worse on cold days? Would you like to keep your hands warm and still be able to operate your phone at the same time? Well Friction Gloves are exactly what you need. Comfort and functionality.
Don’t you just hate it when your disc land in the pond or gets stuck up a tree. Whos brought the 16 ft telescopic retriever? Was it supposed to be you? So handy that it can fit in your bag. Don’t leave home without it. unless you like swimming or climbing trees.
Not as essential as the aforementioned water accessories, but more of an entertainment luxury. Not necessarily for the game neither, more for the comfort of your home. Would make a good gift for someone special in your life anyway.
If you’re tired of lugging all your disc golf gear around a disc golf cart will certainly make your life easier. You may as well enjoy the perks ball golfers have been using for years. Now if only you could get a lightweight hummer to drive you round the fairways….
Don’t let the fading light put yu off field work or late nights on the course. one way to keep on top of this is with a glow in the dark disc like this from Dynamic Discs.
