Packing Checklist - 'Cause Life's a Trip

Welcome to Packing Checklist! Whether you're packing for an overnight trip or a multi-month excursion, we have a packing checklist to help you plan and prepare for your travels.


Single Day or Round Golf Packing Checklist

For experienced golfers, packing for a single day or round of golf is pretty simple…grab your golf bag (with prepacked contents) and your golf shoes, and you’re pretty much good to go.

That’s assuming that you have all the daily items already (keys, wallet, driver’s license, etc.)  In addition to the obvious items, you should take a look at the items IN your golf bag, your personal items, and some optional or course-specific items.  Maybe a packing checklist isn’t a bad idea.

Small and Personal Items

For many of the small items, refer to the Golf Bag Packing Checklist.  For personal items, think about your daily needs (keys, wallet, cell phone, etc.).  Also think about items that might be needed at the club or course (credit card, driver’s license, membership cards).

Course and Weather

You should also consider the club’s or course’s dress code.  If you’re only going for the day, or a single round, you just have to pull these items out to wear that day rather than “pack.”

Consider the weather conditions, too.  If the predicted weather seems stable, you can dress appropriately and forget about contingencies.  If humidity, a cold front, or rain are possible, you may want to pack

an appropriate jacket, accessory, or change of clothes.

Additional Items

Additional/Optional items may depend on the golfer, the club/course, or other typical sport-related factors.  See the full Single Day or Round of Golf Packing Checklist pdf or the outlined list below for your outline to pack and prepare for your Day or Round of Golf.

The Single Day or Single Round of Golf is included in the following text and is available as a downloadable and printable pdf under the Downloads Page along with packing checklists for a or a Multi-Day Golf Trip and the Golf Bag Packing Checklist.
