While a whole new group of golfers took to the course in 2020 – and in record numbers – with that came an entirely new vibe, including music notes floating down the fairway.
With golf doing its best to appeal to a younger generation, more often than not a group of four will be playing tunes from other groups of four – the musical kind, that is. Even older golfers have started to lean into music on the course as a fun way to pass time, keep the energy up, and make a day on the course that’s much more enjoyable.
Especially while Canada continues to navigate the impact of COVID-19, and with golf courses remaining open across the country, any opportunity to participate in an activity safely should be made as joyous as possible.
Luckily some big-time brands have started listening, and we have a ton of great options for those looking to play tunes with their tee time.
A rugged option from Bushnell, the Wingman is a combined speaker and GPS device. Wingman also boasts BITE technology as a magnetic cart mount. The device gives golfers audible front, centre, and back-of-the-green distances and has just over 10 hours of battery life.
