Top Gift Ideas for Golfers

To a golfer, there’s no better gift than one that improves their game. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of practical and creative gifts for the golfer in your life. Whether you have them tracking their game like a pro or simply dressing like one, here are 15 golf-centric gift ideas they are sure to love:

1. Golf Lessons

Some golf hobbyists have been hitting the course for decades while others have just begun their love affair with the game of golf. Golf lessons are a wonderful gift for new golfers who have started taking their hobby seriously, and they're available in every corner of the United States. Additionally, golf lessons are an excellent option included with many Florida golf deals. PGA Tour Golf Academy in the World Golf Village has become one of the most recognized instructional academy locations in the country and has helped hundreds of golfers improve their golf game. 

2. Driver

If you want to get your golfer something truly special, then a coveted driver is an outstanding option. Keep in mind that one’s driver is a very personal choice, so be sure to target an item that you know he/she wants. You can purchase a driver fitting van experience at the PGA Tour Superstore as well. This will allow the person an hour and a half to get fit for a driver for $50. It is a lot of fun and you can learn a lot about your swing. 

3. A Florida Golf Package

Whether someone has just taken up golf in the past year or whether he is a seasoned veteran of greens all over the country, booking a Florida golf package is the ultimate gift for anyone interested in golf. Florida golf vacations not only offer the chance to stand on world class PGA Tour courses, but visitors can also see the World Golf Hall of Fame and take lessons from famous golf professionals.

4. Golf Balls

Golfers can never have too many golf balls, so they’re both a useful and affordable option as a gift. If you want to buy new and top-of-the-line, then consider a box from Callaway or Titleist. Be sure to seek help, since proper ball choice depends on factors like swing speed. If your golfer is a casual player or practices frequently, then consider recycled balls in bulk, often called pre-owned or refinished. You can find these at PGA Tour Superstore online, or in most sporting stores.

5. Windbreaker

Windbreakers are a practical clothing accessory for golfers because they’re lightweight, easy to have on hand when needed, great for sudden weather changes and versatile enough to suit any fashion ensemble. If you desire the very best, consider a Galvin Green Windstopper, which is waterproof, highly durable and made specifically with golfers in mind. If you find yourself playing on coastal courses like the ones we have here in Northeast Florida, it is a convenient thing to have. 

6. Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors

Help a golfer improve their handicap with the fully-automatic performance tracking system. This technology serves as a modern-day caddie; it provides a player with insights about their game, including how far to hit each shot and which club to use, by analyzing thousands of data points it collects on the course. Don’t just take it from us - Golf Digest’s Editor’s Choice Awards has awarded it the “Best Game Analyzer”. 

7. Golf Shoes

Golf shoes are often considered a tough gift to buy because there are so many terrific shoe options. It's not just the color and style that's important, but the comfort level, as well as shoe longevity that makes a shoe worthwhile. Crafted in Italy by hand and a truly stylish option that carries as much respect as any Italian fashion house, Walter Genuin golf shoes are the pinnacle of fashionable and comfortable course shoes. Addidas also offers a bevy of different golf shoes.

8. Short Par4 Box

Give the gift that keeps on giving. Short Par4 is a golf subscription box that makes monthly deliveries straight to your door. The curated box is full of golf goodies, allowing the golfer in your life to stay up-to-date on the latest clothing trends, accessories and gear. PGA Pros like Rickie Fowler and Matt Kuchar help curate the boxes each month with help from their top sponsors. Subscriptions are limited so get yours today!

9. Bushnell Hybrid Laser Rangefinder + GPS

If the golf addict in your life doesn’t have a rangefinder, they need one. Help them revolutionize their game with this device that measures how far a target is from a pin. With so many brands on the market, picking out a rangefinder can be a daunting task. We recommend Bushnell’s newest hybrid version, as it is the first and only rangefinder to include both laser and GPS technology. If your golfer plays competitively, be sure to choose a tournament legal model, since many aren’t.

 

10. Travel Bag

A new bag is the perfect accompaniment to Florida golf vacations. Any golfer who has gone on a vacation and brought clubs knows the danger that a nice set faces when it's put underneath a commuter jet. An open top satchel is appropriate for taking the clubs to the local course, but travelers will adore a new golf travel bag. Some of the best reviewed bags include the ClubGlider from Sun Mountain and the Ogio Monster.

11. PGA TOUR Superstore 23” Chipping Net

Practice makes perfect. This folding chipping basket lets golfers brush up on their game off the course. There are three targets so all skill levels can play and the net folds up into a transportable and storable size. And you can get it fast - select items on the PGA TOUR Superstore offer 2-day shipping throughout December.

12. Kollectaball Bag Buddy Golf Ball Collector

Make course cleanup easy with the Kollectaball Bag Buddy. This product lets users pick up 40 golf balls in just seconds, without any stress on their arms or back. Kollectaball can go almost anywhere on the course, including hard-to-reach areas like water hazards and uneven ground. The best part? The steel wire cage is specifically designed to leave no mark or damage on the putting surface.

13. Putting Green

Consider giving them the gift of golf wherever they go: a putting green for practice that’s suitable for use at home and the office. A particularly popular option is the SKLZ Accelerator, which even has a ball return feature and will set you back less than $50.

14. Tempo Trainer

A tempo trainer is a device that helps golfers refine their grip and swing. Often, this is an item that golfers won’t buy for themselves but will adore once they own it. The Tempo Trainer by SKLZ is a good option, and it’ll cost no more than $70.

15. Powerstar Golf

If your golfer is also a gamer, then Powerstar Golf for the Xbox One by Microsoft is a fun, affordable option with a slew of social features.

For the perfect golf gift, be sure to add those custom touches. Golf buddies are an excellent resource for what it is your golfer desires most. Personal attention can be something as simple as personalizing golf balls or something as elaborate as Florida golf packages that target his/her dream courses. Looking for more?
