Golfers are a special breed of sportsmen. They are very fond of their sport and spend hours practicing and perfecting their technique and looking for the best golf bags. Many who play golf enjoy learning about the latest strategies and equipment and love it when they get a golf gift that they can use. There are many different golf gifts and some are great while others are nothing more than hype or gimmicks. Below are some of the best golf gifts for the truly dedicated golfer as selected by me.
Tin Cup Stencils
These are a personal, yet simple gift. The tin cup is a half-sphere which is shaped like a metal bowl. There is a stencil cutout which allows golf balls to be easily personalized. A golfer uses a Sharpie or some other type of permanent marker to do the personalization.
Taylor Made Ghost Putters
These putters are the exception to the “never buy a golfer equipment” rule. The Ghost Line from Taylor is a putter good enough to risk breaking the above rule. The putter features the elements most golfers feel is essential in a quality putter: a face insert, four-degree loft on the face of the putter, a white face which allows the golfer to see the loft more easily, and microgrooves which are proven to help get the ball moving faster.
The Best Golf Travel Book
If you know someone who travels to golf, the Rolex World’s Top 1000 Golf Courses is a must read. This travel golf atlas is focused on the best courses in the world. The book provides course ratings, as well as contact information for the best 1,000 courses throughout the world.
Great Golf Shoes
Not all golf shoes are created equally. There are new models which are ultra comfortable and which may be worn to play all day right out of the box. The new Adidas Adipure Motion Shoes not only look great but are also very comfortable.
Comfort Is Key
If your golfer wants to play some of the best courses in the world, they will be traveling to cooler climates. It used to be that cooler weather called for layers and bundling, but today, a golfer can wear clothing that heats up. Mobile Warming Gear produces electrically heated clothing which is available in both men’s and women’s styles. The clothing is designed to keep the core warm and can be easily turned one and off.
