If your dad is a keen golfer of any level then you always have a whole range of perfect presents to choose from when it comes to birthday, Christmas and Father’s Day. From accessories to wear on the course to fun golf-themed items for the home, there’s no shortage of ideas for that perfect gift.
If you know his size and what kind of thing he likes to wear on the course, then buying golf clothing will always be welcome. Every golfer loves to get a new polo shirt and there’s the added benefit if it is the T-Shirt Tiger Woods Wears or a brand sponsored by their favourite player.
The core items for the golf clothes range are trousers, polo shirts, golf shoes and waterproofs. Jackets or gilets are also useful if your Dad likes to play in different seasons. Even some trendy golf shorts could be a great present if he isn’t worried about showing off his legs!
As well as the clothing, there are the basics that are needed for every golfer. There’s the big stuff like a set of golf clubs but there’s a good chance dad will already have these if he likes to play. However, there are lots of smaller items that can make great Father’s Day gifts.
Golf balls are a great example. Every player will tell you that they go through a few of them! Lost balls, buried in the sand and never found or in the water, these are all common problems. So, a fresh supply of quality golf balls will always be a welcome present.
You can also get things like personalised golf tees. These are the little stands that hold the ball in place before hitting it the first time on each hole and are important. Personalised ones make it easy to spot your own as they are often flung down the green as the ball is struck.
Fun home stuff
You don’t need to just have stuff for the course when it comes to golf-themed Father’s Day gifts. Other options are things for around the home that is golf themed.
If your dad enjoys a glass of whiskey, then ice cubes will always be on-demand. And golf ball-shaped ice cube trays are a fun way to combine two passions in one place. They are also quite practical as round shaped ice cubes last longer and keep the drink cooler.
Personalised golf glasses are other ways to combine interests. From messages to commemorating special events, there are lots of ways to personalise a glass and different sizes available from whiskey tumblers to pint glasses.
If you have a bigger budget for Father’s Day, then there are some golf tech presents that most golfers would love. A golf laser rangefinder saves a lot of manual calculation on the course and helps players to home in on where they are aiming the ball.
A handheld golf GPS such as the one from Garmin is another luxury present. Loaded with over 40,000 golf courses from around the world it tells players the layout of the course, hazards and sand traps and yardage. There’s even a watch version!
