If there’s a serious golfer in your family, chances are they have a lot of gear, stuff, gizmos, and gadgets related to their passion. I know. I’m one of those golfers. Our equipment is sacred, and we have so much of it, the case could be made that we have a hoarding problem.
But while we have seemingly everything a golfer could ever need or want, there’s nothing that excites us more than getting golf gifts. It doesn’t matter the time of year, to us it feels like Christmas.
The problem for non-golfers looking to buy something for the golfers in their life, is they don’t know where to start.
Fortunately, our Golfer’s Authority family and I have some great ideas next time you find yourself stumped.
Best Gifts for Golfers Who Already Have Everything
Last Year’s Pro V1 Golf Balls
When serious golfers get their hands on Titleist Pro V1 golf balls, it’s like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
This is the finest golf ball on the market and buying them isn’t cheap.
Titleist comes out with a new version every year, and of course those are the ones we covet most (and end up paying a hefty price for).
But we never met a Pro V1 we didn’t like, and previous generations aren’t something we’re going to complain about.
So, if you want to make us happy but not break the bank, previous generations of Titleist Pro V1 golf balls are a great way to go.
Potty Putter Toilet Time Golf Game
Ok, I’ll swallow my pride and admit that I actually received this as a golf gift one time. Granted, it was in a White Elephant gift exchange and my eyes on something else, this novelty of a gift turned out to be pretty darn fun.
I’ll leave it to your imagination to figure out just how this game works, but it shouldn’t be too hard.
My favorite part is that it comes with a “Do Not Disturb” sign that lets everyone know you’re having a little “me time” while nature calls.
Golf Pens with Golf Bag Holder
If there’s one thing serious golfers are religious about, it’s marking their golf balls with something that’s specific to them. And it takes ink a special kind of Sharpie to get this mark on the ball and not have it come off during the round.
For a gift that your special golfer is sure to love, get them a few Sharpie pens and a pen holder they can attach to their bag.
Simple, cheap, and useful, they’re sure to use this unique gift.
PhiGolf Mobile and Home Golf Simulator
If there’s one thing serious golfers love almost as much as playing golf on the course, it’s playing golf away from it.
The PhiGolf Mobile and Home Golf Simulator makes this possible.
The device allows golfers to play the world’s most famous courses and practice via nothing more than a television, Internet connection, and the motion activated swing sensor.
Best of all, your golfer doesn’t have to hit actual balls to see their shots. Just make practice swings and the swing stick sensor captures the shots for you.
The best thing about this gift doesn’t cost nearly as much as the typical simulator. Even more, your golfer just might end up spending more time at home close to you instead of out with their buddies acting unsavory.
The Single Plane Golf Swing Book
Our instructors here at Golfer’s Authority dreaded me putting this swing theory book on the list, but I couldn’t help myself because it’s so iconic.
My disclaimer is that this book perscribes to one swing theory, and it might not be perfect for everyone.
However, it breaks down the swing of arguably the greatest ball striker of all time and one of the game’s most colorful personalities, Moe Norman.
The single plane method is still relevant today and works for a lot of golfers. For others, it’s musings might do more harm than good.
If the golf geek under your roof is a swing theory nerd, this book is full of insight about the golf swing and makes a great gift.
Should that not be the case, proceed with caution.
Callaway Men’s Dawn Patrol Golf Glove
Golf gloves are expensive, and they wear out quickly. Every time your golfer has to buy a new one at the course, they cringe a little.
This glove is high-tech and made of great material that keeps golfers comfortable. It’s also built to stand the test of time.
Golf Whiskey Glasses
As you probably know, golfers love a couple fingers of their favorite spirit after their round.
These whiskey glasses are shaped and dimpled just like a golf ball.
Simple and easy, your risk factor is none at all with this gift.
MySack Golf Ball Storage Sack
Ok, I’ll be the first to admit that this gift is a little crude. But for the male golfer that appreciates that kind of humor, it won’t disappoint.
I’m not going to go into detail about this product, but suffice it to say it’s made of quality material and well-constructed.
ProActive Sports SGS002 Golfer Statistic and Stat Tracking System
Serious golfers play for score and know that tracking their stats is key if they want to get better.
This book from ProActive Sports makes that easy. It comes equipped with a scorecard and pencil holder.
On the opposite side is the stat tracker that allows a golfer to keep track of the most important metrics like fairways, putts, and greens in regulation.
Yet another gift that won’t break the bank, don’t overlook this score and stat book.
JEF World of Golf Collapsible Chipping Net
Golfers know the easiest way to get better and shoot lower scores is to practice their short game.
The Collapsible Chipping Net from JEF World of Golf is the perfect gift to let them do just that.
The net is easy to set up in your backyard and folds up compactly for easy storage in even the tightest of places.
And instead of wandering off to the course every chance they get, the golfer in your family just might end up spending more time at home. That’s a win-win for everyone.
Precision Pro Golf NX7 Pro Slope Golf Rangefinder
When golfers are out on the course, there’s nothing more important than having the correct yardage to all the necessary targets.
Back in the day, we had to pace off yardages from sprinkler heads to our ball and guess at the pin location.
Such is no longer the case thanks to modern technology that makes rangefinders possible.
One of the most affordable, easy to use rangefinders is the Precision Pro Golf NX7. It has all the modern bells and whistles of a modern rangefinder, including slope adjustment, for a price that’s reasonable compared to the competition.
The cherry on top is that it comes with an unprecedented two-year warranty.
SKLZ Accelerator Pro Indoor Putting Green with Ball Return
Drive for show and putt for dough. Even if you don’t know what that saying means, the golfer under your roof does.
There’s no better way to practice your game when you can’t get to the course than practicing your putting indoors.
That’s exactly what the SKLZ Accelerator Pro Indoor Putting Green allows you to do.
The mat fits easily in your living room and comes with automatic ball return. That’s right, you can stand in one spot and groove your stroke for as long as you like without moving away from the football game on television.
AROUY Golf Cooler Bag
Cold drinks, alcoholic or not, are essential on the golf course. And if there’s a place where golf courses really gouge you on price, it’s drinks.
That’s where the AROUY Golf Cooler Bag comes in.
The case is made of lightweight waterproof material. Not only that, but it’s easy to carry on your bag if you prefer to walk instead of ride.
The big question when it comes to coolers is whether they’ll keep your drinks at the right temperature over time. The answer is a resounding yes with this one from AROUY. Specially engineered thick insulation keeps drinks warm or cold, no matter the time of year.
There’s plenty of room too. The cooler can hold up to six 12-ounce cans or two bottles of wine.
If your golfer needs more than that for a single round, this might not be the best gift.
Suncast GO3216 Golf Organizer
In the opening of this article, I was honest when I told you that golfers are hoarders by nature. We keep everything and are always adding to our collection. As this clinical sickness takes hold, we inevitably need more room.
The Suncast GO3216 Golf Organizer might be just what the golfing receiver of your gift is looking for.
It has enough room for two golf bags – yes, some of us have more than one.
On top of that, there are plenty of shelves for all the other stuff like balls, shoes, towels, rain gear, etc. You get the idea.
If you’re a non-golfer, this can be a great gift for you too. . . Your golfer can keep his or her stuff all in one area, leaving you more room to store more gear for whatever it is you’re into.
GrooveMaster Golf Club Groove Sharpener
Great golfers know the importance of having sharp grooves on their scoring clubs. Take my word for it, even though I’m not a great golfer.
Even if that seems like Greek to you as a nongolfer, I’m here to tell you that the GrooveMaster Sharpener is a great gift for any golfer.
Instead of having to buy new wedges every six months, this simple tool saves a lot of money in the long run.
So, what do you think? Just when you thought the avid golfer you care about most had everything they needed and were stumped on what to get him or her next, we came to the rescue.
To be honest, there are hundreds if not thousands of other golf gifts out there. These are just the ones that the Golfer’s Authority staff, and our loyal readers think are the best.
