Can you smell that freshly cut grass? Yes you can. It really feels like we’re up and running now.
And if you’re signing up for the mixed knockout or captain’s away day why not treat yourself to some new gear as well?
In the market for a new summer outfit? GPS watch? Pair of spikeless shoes? We’ve got you covered right here.
Full Under Armour spring summer collection unveiled
We teased you ahead of the Masters with the Under Armour gear Jordan Spieth was wearing but now you can get your hands on the full collection.
There are six polos to choose from. We’ve highlighted the Threadborne (£60) and Coolswitch (£50) in the gallery below.
For those chilly mornings – and generally rubbish summer days we’ll inevitably get – check out the quarter-zip Sweaterfleece (£55) and Daytona (£70) tops.
We’re huge fans of the Under Armour trousers for their superb all-year-round usage. And all trousers are available in shorts too so why not grab a pair for your holidays?
The Match Play Taper (£55) and Vented Taper (£65) trousers are featured in the above gallery.
For the full range including jackets, shoes, gloves and belts visit the Under Armour website.
GolfBuddy launch two new GPS watches
It baffles me when players head out onto the course without any form of rangefinder.
So why not take the guess work out with one of these new GPS watches from GolfBuddy?
The WT6 (£139.99) offers simple, accurate front-middle-back numbers for the golfer who just wants yardage at a glance.
For those after a few more features, the touchscreen WTX (£199.99) has hole layouts, dynamic green views, shot distance measurement and pin position selection.
It also has a stylish watch mode for when not playing golf.

Get the perfect fit with new Oscar Jacobson trousers
Trousers are always a hot topic of debate in the NCG office. A good pair of golfing slacks can be hard to find.
No one wants to look like their are wearing a pair of school trousers but we’re not good enough for the bright blue ones either.
Oscar Jacobson claim their latest range offers a choice of cuts and fits to keep golfers looking stylish on and off the course.
The Laurent trousers (SRP: £75), featured in the gallery below, have four-way stretch material in Oscar Jacobson’s most athletic cut.
The Dave and Brent trousers, ideal for the office, are a slim cut and both are fitted beneath the knee with a flat front.
Both feature a stretch waistband for enhanced comfort.
