1. Golf GPS Devices - Price Range $100 - $300
Golfers are also technogeeks. We deal with numbers in golf whether it be yardages or scores or averages or handicaps. There no better way to satisfy our love of golf and electronic gizmos than to have one of these new Golf GPS devices. The devices use GPS satellite signals to give the golfer an accurate yardage to the golf hole or to any of the hazards on the course such as bunkers or water. No longer does the golfer have to search around the ground to find the yardages on a hidden sprinkler head.The newer models combine GPS yardages with score keeping and the tracking of golfing statistics such as greens in regulation and number of putts per round and fairways hit.

5. Wedges - Price Range $50 - $130
Wedges are the one piece of golf equipment that you actually need to replace often. Yes it is nice to get the latest driver or fairway wood for improved technology but with wedges, the grooves wear down with use and they need to be replaced more often. Wedges are called the "scoring clubs" because they are normally used for delicate shots around the green that if done well normally have a significant impact on lowering a golf score. At least that is how I justify getting new wedges almost every season!

6. Golf Rangefinders - Price Range $200 - $500
Yes they are pricey but ask any serious golfer what is on their wish list and you're likely to hear golf rangefinder. These devices are even more accurate than the Golf GPS devices. A rangefinder is a bicocular type device that you look through to obtain accurate distance readings. Rangefinders use a laser to calculate yardages and unlike the GPS devices which give you limited waypoints for yardages, you can pretty much aim at anything within 300 yards and get accurate yardage listings. Most golf professionals use rangefinders in calculating yardages because of their accuracy.

10. Golf Carts For Walking - Price Range $75 - $2,000
"Real" golfers prefer to walk the course rather than ride a power cart When you walk a course you get the health benefit of walking 5-6 miles while at the same time being able to talk with your golfing buddies and concentrate on your next shot. For golfers that don't want to carry their bag 18 holes there are many bag carts to choose from ranging from ones that you can push or pull to ones that are electronically driven with a remote control.
