Golfers: what golfing accessories or paraphernalia do you have in your office? Tell us what we missed.

When real estate’s most high profile leaders aren’t on the links, they can maintain their game with a few accessories that’ll help them stay below par. Below are a few tools for maintaining your handicap in the off-season, when you’re rockin’ that cube life.

golf1. The Green — the Putt-A-Bout

If you’ve ever dreamed about being that executive in the movie who’s practicing his putt while an office underling sheepishly approaches, asking for a favor, the “Putt-A-Bout” completes the scene. It takes up as much space as a yoga mat, and the assembly process is the same as that of a yoga mat: roll it out, plug in your movable putting cups and you’re ready to golf.

2. The Swing — the INTEY Golf Matt

Just upgraded to a corner office? Then you must have room for the Intey Golf Net. Purportedly taking only two minutes to set up, this net allows for practice of your swing and/or chipping skills. The “catch and ball return design” shoots the balls right back to the base for easy clean up. Once disassembled, the net may be reduced to a small carry bag for seamless storage.

golf3. The Stats — the Arccos Caddie Golf Shot Tracker

Why not take a break from all the meetings and presentation decks to check in on some stats of your own? After all, quantifiable KPIs are the best way to set goals and measure your business AND your abilities as a golfer. The Golf Shot Tracker within the Arccos Caddie set aggregates club distances and key stats, so that you can compare your performance to benchmarks and set a realistic timeline on how you may bridge the gap with actionable goals. This is perfect for those who like to get a bit more analytical about golfing.

golf4. The Form — Posture corrector

There’s never not a good time to practice better posture to improve your game. Certainly sitting at a desk for 40-60 hours a week is a good opportunity to correct it. The Posture Corrector, if worn regularly, promises to create a new muscle memory that will allow you to keep your back straight when not wearing it. And you won’t have to explain to your coworkers, as it can easily be worn under a blazer. Who wins? You.

golf5. The Look — Super comfy Amazon golf pants

Think you can’t get away with athleisure at work? Some designers are getting incredibly crafty when it comes to camouflaging what’s actually sportswear. Amazon’s golf chinos are one of the best examples of super-flexible from-the-office-to-the-green gear.

golf6. The Gag Gift — The Potty Putter

Whether you’re in need of a White Elephant/Secret Santa gift OR you just like to keep busy while attending to bodily business, the Potty Putter is sure to get a laugh, while also being surprisingly useful for improving your game.
