Most expensive Golf Gear
The world’s most expensive golf buggy, featuring a refrigerator built into the dashboard, costs as much as some sports cars. According to the Telegraph, its top speed is 35 miles per hour. The £33,000 ($52,000) Garia Edition Soleil de Minuit features hand-stitched seats and 10-inch aluminium wheels while its double wishbone front suspension is said to be inspired by the fastest cars in the world. A carbon roof and custom paint job are further touches designed to give you a bit of one-upmanship on the fairway.
Dozen Dixon Fire Golf Balls, costing $74.95 per dozen, is “not the ball for everyone” at least that’s what Dixon Golf CEO William Carey. He says it’s only for “the golfer that demands the absolute best in performance.
The world’s most expensive golf bag is the Damier Geant Golf Bag, created by Louis Vuitton. It is named after the canvas used in its creation. It is estimated to be worth $9,750.
