Affordable Golf Gifts That Won’t Break the Bank
Golf can be expensive to play.
However, that doesn’t mean that everything you buy for a golfer has to cost an arm and a leg.
Golf is great because there are tons of items that are used on the golf course while playing and off the golf course while practicing. There are accessories, gadgets and apparel that can make any golfer happy.
I’ve put together a list of items that would make great gifts for golfers under $50. And items that they will surely either love or can use in their golf games.
Here are some great golf gifts that are affordable and that a golfer would love.
Every golfer needs golf balls to play golf.
Golf balls need to be replenished from either usage, but mostly from being lost out on the golf course. Receiving golf balls as a gift is a really nice gesture.
Even the expensive golf balls are just under $50. And the great thing is, there are golf balls that perform well and are lower in price so they provide great value and are loved by many golfers. I’ve listed a few that are well liked and popular.
Titleist Pro V1’s are the ultimate high-performance golf balls for golfers that want to play their best. These golf balls help give golfers incredible distance on their golf shots and great control of the ball around the greens. If you want to give them one of the best, these will surely impress any golfer.
The mission of Vice Golf Balls was to create a golf ball that performed just as well as the big names and be sold at a lower price point. The founders wanted to create a ball at a fraction of the cost without sacrificing quality and performance. The Vice golf ball brand is edgy and trendy in today’s golfing world.
Callaway SuperSoft golf balls offer amazing value. These are great for almost any level of golfer as they are very forgiving and help provide great distance and feel. They come in white and an array of bright colors which is becoming more and more popular with golfers.
Practical Golf Gifts
After a golfer finishes golf, they need a place to put all the odds and ends from their round. This includes tees, balls, ball markers, towels, shoes, golf glove, just to name a few! It can be a lot to organize.
This golf trunk organizer can help. Having a place to stash all these items in between rounds is great for keeping it all organized and not bringing it all into the house.
A golfer needs a golf shoe carrier to transport their shoes from home to the golf course and vice versa. A golf shoe carrier can help keep golf shoes nice and clean and a place to store and carry the golf shoes.
Many golfers will wear different shoes to the golf course and then change into their golf shoes before their round. And there are still a few clubs that don’t allow golf shoes to be worn inside the clubhouse. Thus the need to carry the shoes from one location to another.
Golfers like to bring beverages along during their round of golf. My husband has this handy golf cooler and what he likes about it is that it fits right into the side pocket of his golf bag. We like to walk the course and this is perfect for storing and bringing a few beverages along on the course.
If a golfer rides in a golf cart even occasionally, these golf cart coolers make a nice gift. They keep beverages and snacks nice and cool during a hot summer day. I use these for waters, beverages, snacks and also storing my cooling towel when it’s really hot.
Every golfer needs a pair of rain pants and rain gloves in inclement rainy weather. It is the risk of being outside. These are essentials that a golfer can carry in their golf bag and have when needed.
Sunday golf bags are great to have because they are light and easier on the back to carry.
Affordable Golf Gifts for the Home
Golfers love to show their love for the game. Even at home.
There are many affordable and nice golf gifts that you can provide for the home. We love golf quotes, pictures of golfers and pretty much anything golf. I am listing just a few ideas to get the juices flowing.
Golf Gift Sets
Golf gift sets are great gifts as they usually include more than 1 item and present nicely. Here are a few that I thought would be nice to give and receive.
I love these gift sets because they are fun and they provide a much-needed golf towel, tees, ball marker and clip and a pouch to hold small items.
A personalized divot repair tool and ball marker golf gift set. A nice touch that they can use on the golf course.
Callaway hat with ball markers, tees and golf balls. Offered in 2 different colors.
A nice golf gift set complete with towel, golf club cleaner, divot tool, and ball marker. Also, comes in over a dozen assorted colors.
Inexpensive Golf Gifts That Will Help Improve The Golf Game
Practice at home with this great chipping net and set.
The Puttout putt trainer is one of the biggest gadgets the last couple of years. Drive for show, putt for dough. This makes it easy to practice putting wherever they are. Easy to move around and pack up for portability and comes in several different colors.
This is a great putting mat for home or office practice.
The SKLZ Weighted Tempo Trainer helps with grip and tempo or rhythm which are two of the most important parts of the golf swing.
The SKLZ Smashbag Golf Trainer helps golfers with learning the “correct ball impact”. Great for at home practice.
Unique Gifts for Golfers Under $50

Attach this JBL Bluetooth speaker to the golf bag for some tunes on the golf course.

Think Glow Golf. These are great for golfing in the dark. While there are golf courses that offer this, there are also times where a golfer may get stuck playing the last few holes in the dark. And believe me, it is really hard to see any golf ball after the sun has set. These are great because they light up and go streaking through the night – easy to see and fun!
