Christmas gift ideas for golfers

Trying to find the best golf Christmas gifts for your dad, hubby, or best mate?

From apparel that’s practical, stylish, and exceptionally comfy to high-tech golf gadgets and trolleys, there are thousands of different golf products out there.

Whilst we’re proud to stock an extensive range of these – both online and in-store – here at Clarkes’ Golf Centre we appreciate that knowing what to buy a passionate golfer for Christmas can be easier said than done.

That’s why we’ve rounded up the best golf gifts for men, accommodating every budget and skill level. Many of these are great for the budding female golfer, too!

Low-cost golf Christmas ideas

Though it may seem like a pretty naff gift, socks make brilliant stocking fillers for golf lovers.

Adding an extra pair (or three!) to their sock drawer this Christmas will allow them to play in total comfort, keeping their feet warm and dry in all conditions.

On top of that, though, it saves them having to hunt for the missing sock or rush to get them dry when they’ve only just come out of the washing machine.

Available in a variety of brands, colours, prints, and sizes, there’s something to suit everyone in our collection of golf socks for men and women.

Ok, so an umbrella is hardly one of the most exciting golf gifts – but it’s certainly one that golfers will appreciate when playing in wet conditions!

Unlike a regular brolly, most golf umbrellas have a double canopy. This means they’re less likely to blow inside out on a windy day and will keep players dry even in blustery conditions.

They’re big enough to provide shelter for bags and equipment, and a gift that means not having to worry about lugging a soggy golf bag around for 18 holes is definitely worth having.

Whilst gloves might not be on every golfer’s Christmas list, they make for a practical gift and come in handy all year round.

For example, when worn on the lead hand, the Zoom Weather Glove offers a snug fit and provides extra grip on the club, allowing shots to go further and faster. They’re a godsend when playing in wet weather and are available in a choice of colours – ideal if you’re shopping for the fashion-forward golfer.

When playing winter golf, a pair of mittens are sure to keep their hands toasty warm in between shots and walking across the course.

We recommend something like the TaylorMade Winter Mittens with elasticated wrist cuffs to ensure a comfy fit and superior warmth.

In our opinion, training aids are one of the best golf Christmas gifts you can buy for an amateur or professional player. Things like putting mats, putt gates, and ball markers, to name just a few.

Although relatively inexpensive, such products allow golfers to focus on the aspects of their game that need a little work – be it their swing, putting stroke, consistency, or accuracy.

With a little practice at home, they’ll be shaving strokes off their scores in no time!

Mid-range golf Christmas ideas

If you’re buying for an avid golfer, the chances are they’ll be playing in all weathers and need a stylish jacket to keep them warm and dry.

Although we might be slightly biased, we believe the Adidas Frostguard Insulated Golf Jacket is one of the best golf gifts for men.

With its soft fleece-lined sleeves and quilted down insulation in the body, it stops golfers’ freezing on the fairway and allows for unrestricted movement.

Whilst it’s possible to play a round of golf in regular trainers, having a pair of stylish and comfortable golf shoes that fit properly can be a real boon for golfers.

Whether your golf buddy has a vast collection of golf shoes or just two pairs that they alternate between, why not treat them to some new ones?

You could drop subtle hints and find out which brands they like and what shoe size they wear. It’s also worth considering what colours would go well with the rest of their attire.

Our collection consists of all the latest men’s golf shoes and women’s golf shoes, including spiked and spikeless designs, at some of the lowest prices around.

It’s no secret that golfers need golf balls to play a round of golf – but they don’t come cheap.

If you’re lacking golf gift ideas, consider asking your loved one if they could do with some new golf balls. And if so, do they have their eye on any in particular?

Some of the golf balls we stock from Titleist come with free personalisation, which makes for a fun and thoughtful Xmas gift.

Others are available at a discounted rate – so as long as you haven’t already gone over budget – you can afford to get them a little something else.

All golfers want to carry their clubs in style, and what better way to ensure they do than to get them a brand new bag for Christmas?

The cost of golf bags is often dependent on the type (i.e. stand bag, cart bag, or tour bag) and brand. However, it’s possible to pick up a decent carry bag from around the £50 mark.

Depending on who you’re buying for, you could make it their main present and get them a couple of stocking fillers to go with it (i.e. a pair of socks or a drink bottle for days on the links).

Or maybe you’ll ask others to chip in to help you get them the exact one they asked for. 

High-end golf Christmas ideas

Looking for lavish golf gift ideas to treat someone special? How about a golf watch or GPS device?

Whilst any wristwatch will help golfers to keep track of the time, a golf GPS watch can do so much more than that.

Jam-packed with innovative technology and features, these smart devices from Garmin and Bushnell allow serious golfers to analyse their techniques and track their progress. Plus, like most GPS devices, they come with over 42,000 courses pre-loaded.

It depends on your budget and whether you’re planning on buying one big Christmas present or lots of small ones – but an electric golf trolley is definitely one of the most generous golf gifts you can give.

A motorised trolley will set you back several hundreds of pounds, but the lucky recipient will experience fewer aches and pains.

The trolley will take the strain off their back, arms, and knees, allowing them to preserve their energy for the game.

Most come with a host of cool features – including drink holders, phone holders, USB charging ports, variable speed settings, lightweight and long-lasting batteries, and downhill control (DHC).

You can even get electric trolleys with GPS, but these tend to come with a bigger price tag!
