Sure there are lots of reasons to be excited about the beginning of Spring; warmer weather, MLB baseball is back, and of course the NCAA March Madness basketball tournament. But for millions of Americans, the start of spring also means the start of golf season. 

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, golf saw its biggest surge in new players in more than 20 years. The rise in new players has been good news for major golf companies like Topgolf Callaway Brands Corp (NYSE:MODG) and Acushnet Holdings Corp (NYSE:GOLF). Even Netflix Inc (NASDAQ:NFLX) got in on the surge of golf, releasing its “Full Swing” documentary series last month. 

Here are some new golf products that we’re excited about heading into the 2023 golf season:

PXG’s All-New Gen 6 Clubs And Golf Balls

PXG has made an impressive mark on the game of golf in a short period of time. Its newest line of clubs, the Gen 6, offers players some of the best-looking clubs available without sacrificing anything in terms of performance. The irons offer an extremely thin face, which provides players with more feel and an extremely satisfying sound on impact.

PXG also announced a new line of golf balls, the PXG XTREME Premium Golf Balls. The company, which is a veteran-owned company, also offers a version of its premium balls with the United States Marines Corp logo to help support and honor veterans. 

Clearly PXG has had a busy off season. One of the PGA Tour players that uses PXG, Joel Dahmen, was featured heavily and got his own episode in the Neftlix ‘Full Swing Series’.

New Irons From Costco?

When you think of legacy golf brands, Costco Wholesale Corp (NASDAQ:COST) probably doesn’t come to mind. But the company, through its Kirkland brand, has long been revered in online golf forums for its off-brand products that can be sneakily good on the course and underpriced.

Kirkland once offered golf balls that many people swore were the same as Titlist ProV1s, just cheaper. Now, Kirkland is preparing to release a new set of blades according to reporters that saw the company apply for approval through the USGA club-conforming process. 

We don’t know a lot about the irons yet, but if you are looking for a full set of clubs at a discount, Costco may be your best bet. 

Automatic Push Carts

Golf can be a great way for people to get active and outdoors, especially if they opt to walk instead of taking a cart. But for many people, carrying a set of clubs is too much of a pain to walk 18 holes. In comes the automatic push cart.

There are plenty of options now, but the BatCaddy model is available on Amazon for less than $1,000 and is a good option. Regular push carts are great too, and can often be found online for $200 or less.
