Winter has arrived on the golf course but we can help!
With soggy lies and cold hands, winter golf can be tough, but a diving thermometer does not have to mean a rise in your scores. Find below some tips from the professionals on how we can make help make your golf more enjoyable this winter …
Get yourself a good pair of wet weather gloves
Keeping your hands dry is crucial to enjoying your golf and a wet weather pair of gloves is a must have for every golfer – it will help you keep things under control when it rains. The wetter they get, the firmer they grip, helping you to keep a hold of both your clubs for just £19.95.
Keep your hands warm
When your hands are too cold, you lose feeling in them and golf becomes almost impossible. Buy a pair of winter mitts and drop a couple of hand warmers in them to keep your hands toasty. We have a selection of oversized mitts from £24.95 whilst handwarmers are just £2 a pair.
Get yourself a good base layer
A cold body is a stiff body and will cost you both distance and feel. Wrapping yourself up in a fat-suit of jumpers, however, is almost certain to limit your golf swing. The answer? A wafer-thin, heat- locking base layer – we have some great options from UnderArmour, Kjus and Rohnisch from just £39.95
Waterproof Golf Bags
A waterproof golf bag is simply a must-have item to keep all your belongings and clubs dry for the inevitable rain you will be playing in. Why not treat yourself to a new lightweight, waterproof, and reliable stand bag for the winter season ahead? There are 4 colour options plus the choice of owning one with or without the Roehampton logo for £169.95.

Pro’s top winter tip – Tee it high and let it fly!
To maximise your distance off the tee in winter, you need to increase your carry. That’s why it is well worth teeing the ball up a fraction or if you have you have got an adjustable driver, perhaps put the loft up or slide a weight back to increase launch angle. Set a little more weight on your back foot at address and make a normal swing from there. These minor tweaks will help you find a few crucial extra yards this winter!
