3 tips to be ready for all this spring



Spring means you have to be prepared for anything on the course.

Spring is officially here!

While we are officially past the gloomy winter and can finally get back to class, weather conditions in the spring can be unpredictable. You never really know if that cool morning departure time will give way to the warm rays of the mid-morning sun or the gentle crackle of rain falling in a bunker.

That’s why spring is a great time to take stock of your wardrobe and golf gear to make sure you’re always ready to take on what Mother Nature has in store for you. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to make sure you stay warm, dry, and comfortable on the course, even if the weather turns unexpectedly.

Discover our tips for making the most of your spring on the course.

1. Layer up

Frosty mornings tend to give way to warmer afternoons in spring, so it’s best to layer on top of each other. The last thing you want is to be stuffy by the time you take the tour with no way to cool off. Below are some of my favorite layers to wear, so I’m always ready on the course.

Stay cool and comfortable on or off the course with the Victory Sleeveless Polo. The polo shirt features a sweat-wicking Dri-FIT fabric that allows moisture to evaporate quickly so you can stay dry when you sweat. The fabric is also stretchy for a comfortable fit and freedom of movement. It is made of polyester, which is machine washable and offers resistance to mildew, shrinkage and wrinkling. Design details also include sleeveless construction, 3 button closure, subtle stripes on the collar, stripe down the back and logo at the hem.

2. Water resistant shoes are essential

Whether you are sweeping away the dew or getting caught in a spring downpour, choosing water resistant shoes is extremely important. Golfing is hard enough, so adding the discomfort of walking in wet 18-hole shoes is definitely not going to help you shoot lower scores. That’s why I always choose a shoe designed to be water resistant like the Nike Cortez G.

Nike Cortez G


The Nike Cortez is an iconic shoe, worn around the world as the embodiment of various cultural influences and athletic endeavors. The Nike Cortez G golf shoe is just as inspired as the original and comes with a spikeless outsole that provides versatility on and off the course. Additional design features include shallow toe box, tapered heel, higher arch, outsole that tapers through the arch. Comfort benefits include a scalloped collar that allows your ankles to move freely with each swing and a full-length foam midsole for added cushioning. Again, the design here is a vintage Cortez, which looks as fast as you’d expect. The outsole is constructed with sawtooth traction patterns for better grip on the grass.

3. Keep your gear dry

As uncomfortable as it can be to walk around in wet shoes, playing with wet clubs can be even worse. Whether you’re trying to get down low or just trying to enjoy a trick, there’s nothing worse than not being able to execute your shots because your sticks are soaked in water.

A sturdy, water-resistant golf bag is your first line of defense against morning dew.

Jones Sports Company Original Jones


This is the golf bag that started it all in 1971 and has grown into one of golf’s most iconic bags. Combining traditional Jones styles with modern materials, the Original is specially designed for the walking golfer. Water resistant nylon keeps handles dry for dew sweepers and all weather gamers. The retro single strap and unstructured body make golfing easy, while three pockets provide plenty of room for your personal items and golf accessories.
