Play it Built for gadget-loving golfers who will do anything to get a leg up on the competition, GolfBuddy's World GPS Range finder is the ultimate digital golf caddy. With its 40,000-course worldwide library and an automatic course and hole recognition feature, it follows you from hole to hole, mapping out distance to greens and bunkers. It also warns of hazards and lakes, but stops short of giving tips on how to improve your swing. golfbuddyglobal.com, $349.99 (U.S.)

Store it Keep your golfing gear safely stowed with Bag Boy's Hybrid HCX Travel bag. Combining the protective features of a hard-sided shell and the convenience of a wheelie suitcase, the bag can be stuffed with a full set of clubs, balls and more than one change of clothes. The crush proof top and body can even fit a 50-inch driver, while two removable garment pockets provide ample space for stashing course-appropriate attire. At Golf Town, golftown.com, $159.99

Wear it The Ecco Golf Street - PGA Tour shoe of choice for Fred Couples - is as unpretentious as footwear gets on the greens. The sneaker-like, soft leather golf cleat has a breathable lining and cushiony foam insole for comfort and flexibility. Even without spikes, its pre-moulded traction bars support a sturdy stance on the course, and the low-key look transitions easily from clubhouse to coffee shop. In Ecco stores or at eccocanada.com, $200
