Golf Gifts for the Golfer on Your List
by Michelle Brooks, Ready Golf & Gear
We all have someone on our list that’s a golfer, right? Or maybe everyone you know is a golfer! Either way it can be difficult to find that perfect gift for the golfer that has everything. Well, you’re in luck. Here are a few ideas to get the biggest smiles from the golfers on your list:
Golf balls. I know, boring, right? Not necessarily. All golfers lose golf balls. That’s just a fact. So, stocking your buddy up with their favorite golf ball so they don’t have to worry about picking any up for a while is a priceless gift. You can even go a step further and personalize their golf balls for them. Have your golf partner’s balls printed with their name or favorite saying. I saw one the other day that said, “If found, please hit it better than I did!” Whichever way you’d like to personalize them, check with your local golf store for prices and options.
Does your favorite golfer own a golf cart? Why not hook them up with locking glove boxes, a second cooler or maybe a Bluetooth sound bar? You can pick up all kinds of accessories from your local golf cart dealership. If it’s a bigger item that needs to be installed professionally, a good idea is to purchase the item and give it just like any other gift. After it’s opened you can call the dealership and schedule an installation. Depending on the installation, in Mesquite and St. George, Ready Golf & Gear offers installation at your home or free pick-up and delivery.
Every year at Christmastime, many people come into our shop to buy a certain golf club or set of golf clubs for their special someone. But with all the different lofts and flexes, not to mention all the different brands and shafts, it’s hard to know exactly which club or clubs to get. We have solved this by helping our customers find what will most likely be best for their special someone, and then we suggest bringing that special someone in for a custom club fitting after the holiday. That way, their special someone has a great gift to open, but can also choose what best suits him or her later. It’s like a double gift, really. Just be sure they don’t use the gift clubs in case they do end up going with something different.
One of our good customers who happens to not be a golfer was in the other day looking for a birthday gift for a friend. I suggested something we sell a lot of, a GPS Quick Clip. I explained that this is a universal device that allows a golfer to hang any GPS unit or range finder on any golf cart. It works with a heavy-duty magnet that keeps the unit in place during play, but allows the golfer to remove it when they are done. She exclaimed, “Oooh, you mean you use it with one of those cheat machines?!” I will now be calling my GPS unit a “cheat machine” for all of eternity.
The GPS Quick Clip makes a great stocking stuffer if your golfing friend has a GPS unit or a range finder. If they don’t, then maybe a cheat machine is the perfect gift! There are several brands and models to choose from, as well as from the low to high price range. Stop into your local golf store and ask them to go over all the options with you.
These are just a few of endless ideas for great gifts for any golfer on your list. I hope this article will help you find the perfect gift for your golfing friends and family. For more ideas, please visit your local golf shop. And please don’t forget to shop locally this holiday season!
