GOLF GEAR TO COMBAT THE ELEMENTS
Golfers wear gloves primarily to improve their grip, but they can also help protect their hands from inclement weather. There are gloves designed for enhanced grip in wet conditions, as well as lightweight options to wear in warmer weather. Thermal gloves can also be ideal for colder temperatures, while cart mitts can offer added warmth while navigating the course.
Does your golfer often encounter rainy conditions on the course? If so, check out this Pro Tips Golf Raingear Checklist to make sure they have all the essentials.
FINDING A UNIQUE GOLF GIFT
Headcovers can provide your golfer’s clubs with protection when traveling to and from the course. They also add some flair to a golfer’s bag with a variety of options, allowing them to express their personality while representing their favorite movie or sports teams, or even showing their love of animals with pet-inspired designs. A new golf towel can help keep their clubs clean, while a golf brush can come in handy when removing dirt, sand and grass.
A ball marking system allows golfers to differentiate their ball on the course while adding a touch of personality. Available in a range of designs, golfers use a permanent marker to transfer the logo onto their balls.
Personalized golf balls are also a great gift to fit in your golfer’s stocking. Custom golf balls can be personalized to include a nickname, mark a special occasion or celebrate the bond of your golfer’s regular foursome.
BACK TO THE BASICS
If your golfer uses technology to measure their game, add some golf electronics to help dial in their performance. Rangefinders and golf GPS devices can help determine a golfer’s distance from the green and other points on the course. A pair of headphones or a Bluetooth speaker can help them get into the zone when hitting the links.
LOOK GOOD, FEEL GOOD
Help your golfer look Tour-ready on and off the course with new golf apparel. Golf shirts, shorts and skorts can be folded nicely to fit in a stocking. Meanwhile, a hat, visor or sunglasses can help keep the sun out of their eyes. A golf arm sleeve can offer protection from the sun and wick away moisture while also providing a unique look and lasting comfort. Round out their golf attire with golf socks and belts.
Don’t forget a new beanie if your golfer braves the cold to get their game in.
TRAIN WITH THE BEST GOLF EQUIPMENT
Finally, golf training aids can be great gifts to help golfers work on lowering their score. Training balls come in bright colors to stand out and can be made of foam so they don’t damage clubs or property. A golf training glove is designed to help keep a golfer’s wrist in the correct position, while a swing trainer can keep a golfer’s arms and body in proper form. A golf putting tool is a great way to help a player’s short game stay on track.
Alignment sticks act as visual guides for clubs ranging from drivers to putters. Designed to improve both aim and swing path, these sticks fold up so they can easily fit in both a golf bag and a stocking.
