Look smart — and snazzy! — with these golf-trip essentials.

Wanna get away? Travel smart and light with these cool necessities courtesy of fresh brands like Holderness & Bourne. Oh, and the ultimate garment bag to make sure your gear stays course-ready whether you’re flying or driving. But first, a few smart tips for getting your gear ready…

Packing hacks

Here are a few tips to prevent you from being the disheveled guy who never gets upgraded:

1) When packing a lot, instead of folding t-shirts, roll them. You’ll be able to fit more in.

2) Turn your blazer inside out and fold it onto itself vertically, then fold it again in half horizontally (upon arrival, immediately unfold the jacket and hang it up).

3) Save space by stuffing belts and socks into your shoes.

4) Place all footwear at the bottom of your duffel bag to center the weight, then place your clothes on top of them. Voilà!
