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. Approach CT10 Club Tracker by Garmin

If your golfer is a bit more on the serious side, check out this handheld tracker by Garmin. The lightweight and secure sensors easily attach to the end of a club's grip. You won't even know the sensors are there while you play. But after a couple of rounds, you'll be glad they are. An ingenious automatic on/off feature helps provide a battery life of up to 4 years. When it's time to replace batteries, you can easily do it yourself. Add the Garmin Golf app to your compatible smartphone to gather key stats and data you can use to help you work to improve your game. Review your stats in the Garmin Golf app for accuracy to the fairway or green and for drives, approach shots, chip shots, and putting to help you know what parts of your game need more focus. If you have a Garmin golf watch, this will pair nicely with it. 

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. Club Fitting 

If you know a golfer who has a set of old clubs, this gift will make them very excited undoubtedly and they will have fun during the fitting process!  Stop by any PGA TOUR Superstore location to work with a PGA TOUR Superstore Certified club fitter and use launch monitor technology to analyze ball-flight characteristics, or to use fitting tools from all of the major manufacturers to get your shot pattern dialed in. The golfer and the club fitter will work with you shot after shot while they help customize your new set. 

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 a 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. The GolfForever Training System

Know a golfer that takes their gym training seriously in order to further develop their game? This Golf Forever Training System is a great way to hold yourself accountable anywhere. The GolfForever Training System improves your mobility and golf movement patterns like no other tool can. It’s the safest, most direct route to gain fluidity and speed in your swing, increase your energy on the course, and play golf without limits.

15. Power Release Trainer 

You can pick up a Power Release Trainer at any PGA Tour Superstore or local golf shop. This tool is a great way to promote swing form and accuracy. It's also easy to store, so golfers can easily keep it in their golf bag and use it to help warm up before their tee time.
