Golfers are known to be the same as guitarist, suffering from G.A.S (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) a garage full of clubs, balls and all the newest gadgets already. Thankfully the golf market is teaming with new items for finding the ideal golf birthday present!

Whether it’s a Christmas golf gift for a serious golfer or a fun family reunion or company tournament prize, it takes a bit of planning and research to even pick out a golf gift that’s really appreciated. Golfers can be picky with their gear so here are a few tips that will help you find that perfect gift.

Selecting The Golf Gift Based On Skill Level

  • For the entry level or beginner. A swing training video with some easy drills for the beginner can provide an easy way to practice in home or office privacy. A wide range of choices are available, professionally created by qualified trainers. And for putting practice, this 9 foot indoor putting green with continuous automatic ball return for developing accuracy and control is the perfect gift.

  • For the intermediate or occasional golfer. A hinged training club could be a good idea. Not only do people find this form of tool excellent for improving swings, but it is something people search for when their slice starts creeping backwards. It is intended to help golfers improve, so it probably won’t be resented as an insinuation that a swing needs to improve.
  • The most difficult to please may be the seasoned, low-handicapper golfer. Every golfer of course enjoys more quality balls and nice shirts. But if you want anything special, slip out into the garage or try gaining access to the club’s locker. List and take an inventory of every club in your pack. Then head to a pro golf shop and ask what is missing from this bag. Almost every golfer loves trying something different, whether it’s a modern high-degree wedge, a different putter style or something modern in hybrid technology.
