Father’s Day Gift Ideas
Need a Father’s Day gift for the golfer in your life? Below is a list of my top 10 golf gift ideas that are practical and useful.
Titleist ProV1 or Callaway Chrome Soft Golf Balls
One necessity that all golfers need are golf balls. And there are many to choose from. Here, I’m listing the top 3 golf balls that would make most golfers very happy. Titleist and Callaway are well-known brands in golf ball technology. They are somewhat on the pricier side of golf balls, which is why for Father’s Day, a dozen golf balls can be a very nice gift.
Snell Golf Balls are fairly new to the golf world and yet, are growing in popularity. Started in 2015 by a golf ball designer with almost 30 years of experience in the golf ball business, their mission is “to bring tour caliber equipment to the amateur golfer at an affordable price”. The designer, Dean Snell, worked previously with two of the largest golf ball manufacturers and was a co-creator of the ProV1’s. A friend of my husband, who is also a very good golfer uses and loves these Snell golf balls.
Don’t tell my husband, but he is getting these for Father’s Day this year :).
I just found out about this really great swing trainer. Just about everyone who golfs would love to have more distance and power. This training tool, used by hundreds of Tour Pros, helps increase swing speed and can help add more distance to the golf shot. This is definitely on my personal wish list.
A GPS golf watch was my first foray into determining the distance to the green. As a beginner, all I worried about was hitting the ball as well as I could. But as I improved, I needed to know how far the green was from where I was hitting. Using a GPS watch is easy and extremely useful. You can wander around the golf course trying to find the yardage markers, but this watch tells you front, middle, and back yardages to the green from where you are standing.
A golf rangefinder can provide even better or more exact yardages. Point to a object with the rangefinder and it will tell you the distance from where you are standing. This handy hybrid gadget displays the GPS distances to the green like a golf watch while also being a rangefinder. I especially like the fact you can just look at the yardages to the green on the display and not have to use the rnagefinder everytime.
This is the premier rangefinder for those golfers that want just about everything. This provides not only exact distances to any object, but it can also give you the slope reading and other measurements that are needed on a golf course. For tournament play, it also has a switch to turn off these extra measurements.
Golf is one of those activities that has a lot of accessories and equipment. We are talking everything from balls, tees, markers, gloves, sunscreen, shoes, towels, scorecards, cleaning tools, beverage holders, sunglasses, hats, and a whole lot more. Having something to keep all these items neat and organized in your car, trunk, house or garage can be extremely useful for a golfer.
During golf season, I keep everything in my trunk so I can just leave the house knowing everything is all there in my car. Since I mostly walk when I golf, I don’t like to bring too many extra items in my golf bag as it can get heavy. After a round of golf, I have a place to put everything and it is neat, organized and efficient. And ready to go for the next round.
This is a gift that will help the golfer in your life with their golf game. Hands down, it has been one of the most useful training aids my husband and I have purchased. It sits in our living room and we can practice putting anytime. Highly recommend this. It can be used on a carpet or you can get a putting mat as well.
This putting mat can be used in conjunction with the putting trainer above as they go nicely together. I like this particular one because of the lines that can help a golfer line up their putts and ensure their position is correct.
