Equipment & Tips | Ontario Highlands Tourism

Golfing requires patience, stance, and a good swing, but it also relies on the need of quality equipment that’s geared for the right swing at the right time. You’ll need to know which club to select for a long-distance fairway shot versus what will help you get out of a sand trap or the long grass. And that’s just the clubs we’re talking about – there are also shoes, gear bags, balls, tees, and more to pick up before heading out on the course. Here are some golf equipment links to help you prepare for the 9 or 18 holes ahead of you.
