Golf accessories make a great gift for any occasion whether its fathers or mother’s day, birthday’s graduations or any other holiday.
Just about every golf accessory can be purchased with NFL or NCAA logos of their favorite team on them; from golf bags, head covers, golf balls, divot tools, embroidered towels or logo tee packs.
When purchasing a golf bag find out if your golfer likes to ride or walk while playing golf. If he or she walks most of the time then a good quality stand bag would be your best option. This bag should be light weight, preferably under 5lbs. with dual straps. The dual carry straps are designed to distribute the weight evenly on both shoulders, which takes the pressure off their low back.
If your golfer rides in a cart while playing golf, you would want to consider a cart bag. These bags are not made to carry. Make sure the bag is functional with dividers to protect their golf clubs, preferably with a separate putter holder and a few storage compartments. They can show there team spirit on the golf course with both of these bags, plus these bags will hold up for many years.
If your golfer happens to be an executive. For the traveling executive, they may appreciate having a travel putting kit to practice on those overnight stays. There are several golf tip books to read, golf improvement instructional videos to watch while he/she is on the plane.
Indoor putting greens are good practice tools. There are a few choices, from a portable one that you simply roll up and take anywhere, to a stationery one for his/her home or office. There are many different sizes to choose from and they really help their short game.
When choosing a gift don’t over look the golf shirt or polo. These come in a number of different styles and material, from the standard 100% cotton fabric which is pretty heavy compared to the 100% pima cotton and the 100% polyester with moisture wicking technology. You don’t have to be a golfer to wear a golf shirt. These new style shirts will keep you cool and comfortable on the course or at a back yard barbeque.
I hope these unique ideas have been helpful. I find on-line shopping is more cost effective than purchasing golf gifts at a retail store or pro shop. At a retail store or pro shop, there is always a big mark up unless they are having an end of the season sale, then you can get some pretty good bargains.
