These holiday gifts for golfers are a hole-in-one
1. Titleist TSR 2
Sure, it looks like a driver you’d find in the trunk of the Batmobile, but the new Titleist TSR 2 is designed to rescue gamers who miss the right spot from time to time. The designers introduced an additional assist with variable thickness across the entire face of the space-class Titanic to increase ball speeds through the area of impact. Weight is placed low and forward for more speed, as well as a high tee and low spin, so the golfer should have no problem leading the other players in the group.
2. PXG Gen 5 irons
Hitting greens in regulation is one of the keys to lower scores in golf. To keep players’ approach shots online, PXG has loaded the forged heads of their Gen 5 irons with a lighter and faster XCOR2 material. The designers then took the weight savings and redistributed the mass outside the club for more MOI tolerance, so slag didn’t fall off-target and well-hit shots ended up in birdie range. Honestly, these are the best irons we’ve ever played with. a point.
3. Compex Sport Elite 3.0 Muscle Stimulator
Golf is sometimes derided as a simple athletic endeavor. But between a run session and a walking session, the athlete does more than 100 flips and complete hoofs over five miles of trail with a 25-pound bag on his back. Muscles can get tired and sore. For convenience, the Compex Sport Elite 3.0 Muscle Stimulator uses both electronic muscle stimulation and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation technologies to reduce recovery times and relieve pain.
4. 5-Pocket Stretch Cord Pants Connect
Some corduroys are very thick and heavy on the green, others are very thin and light—but the Linksoul Five-Pocket Corduroy is a perfect fit. The weight is ideal for cooler temperatures on and off the course, and a small amount of Lycra woven into the fabric provides the perfect amount of stretch to accommodate fluctuations.
5. Bushnell Pro XE Range Finder
Aside from bats and balls, one of the most important tools on the course is a laser rangefinder and the Bushnell Pro XE is the gold standard. With point-and-click simplicity, the Pro XE vibrates when it locks on a pin and shows the actual distance, plus an adjusted one for changing elevation. Of course this feature is not legal in tournament competition, so players can disable it with a lock key slide. The Pro XE is accurate to one yard, even at distances over 600 yards, is fully waterproof and users can also switch between red and black readouts on the finder. When it’s time to shoot, players can use a BITE magnet to stick it to their cart. Unlike many imitators, it won’t fall off before you get to the next tee.
6. FootJoy Premiere Series Tarlow
When we saw Justin Thomas walk down the aisle in the Presidents Cup in his premiere of the FootJoys series, we immediately put them on our wish list. Someone’s fingers crossed are good enough to isolate a pair for our bag. Full-grain leather with detailing in calfskin gives a classic look, while custom-fit OrthoLite ecoplush cushioning keeps feet cool during long walks around the court. Plus, it’s customizable, so you can dial in your player’s appearance.
7. Prime hit the mat
Winters in colder climates can mean a hole off the course. But with the PrimePutt Putting Mat, your golfer can take their time keeping their putts fluid. The half-inch-thick turf is quickly sawn and backed with an angled nut that prevents missed kicks from derailing their next attempt. The plastic cups hold up to four balls, so the player can keep building muscle memory for longer and the lawn rolls around 10-12 on the stimulus meter, which is much faster than the rug rolled downstairs.
8. Grayson Ottawa cardigan shawl
Every golfer needs a great jacket and the Grayson Ottawa Shawl Cardigan will keep your player nice and warm on the course. A cashmere and merino wool blend, this sweater is super soft and comfortable. Five buttons on the front allow the player to throw on an extra layer without taking off their hat and the rib knit shawl collar adds extra warmth and effortless style.
9. Puma head
For the golfer who likes to play with a little musical accompaniment, the Puma PopTop Speaker Music is a great accessory. Bluetooth 5.0 is developed by Speaqua Sound Co. It has a battery life of up to 10 hours. It also features a stretchable silicone strap to keep the phone in place. Fits nicely in a golf cart cup holder, but there’s also a hook for attaching to a golf bag for players who prefer to walk. There’s a bottle opener built into the back for players who get a little thirsty on the field.
10. Clinch Touch Golf Glove
Most golf gloves are made from leather, which is great for keeping blisters out while still feeling great. But leather traps moisture, loses its grip in the rain, and can wear out quickly if not taken care of properly. The Cinch Tactile Glove uses a combination of what the company calls CrushGroove fabric and poly-spandex for flexibility, enhanced breathability, and a glue-like grip. Clinch also says the touch glove can last up to twice as long as regular golf gloves. While we’d prefer everyone to leave their phone in their bag while on tour, you can text without taking it off. But please do so in moderation and help keep up the pace of play.
11. Lyle and Scott Eagle Polo
Polo is the casual attire for golfers. They always need a new one. Finally, iconic British fashion maker Lyle and Scott has crossed the pond and made its wares available in the US. This polo is soft and lightweight and features stripes around the collar and sleeves for great contrast.
12. True Linkswear True Lux Pro
Players will log about 12,000 strides for an average round of golf. This is a long drive, so help your player stay fresh on their feet with a fresh pair of kicks. This True Linkswear True Lux Pro shoe is crafted from waterproof nappa leather and uses a cushioned heel cup paired with an ultra-soft insole – minimizing the impact of every step.
13. Cherv Atos 599 Long Sleeve Polo
For those who prefer long sleeves, the Chervò Atltare 599 is made from stretch thermal jersey – providing extra warmth and protection from the sun while remaining light and breathable. Perfect for late and early golf season, the shirt’s crisp aesthetic with its ribbed, striped collar will play any time of year.
14. Galvin Green Dominic
Players who want to hit the court as the temperatures drop will need an extra layer in the bag to stay warm. Dominic Galvin Green not only insulates, but also wicks moisture and stretches with your golf swing. We love that 90 percent of the canvas is made from recycled plastic.
15. Malbun Rabbit hat
Malbon LA shop offers some of the most fun collabs in the golf space – plus their logo is one of the best tee conversation starters. Malbon’s rope ball hat in rabbit ears is a lark for those in the know, and the uninitiated will want to let them in.
16. Bonobos Justin Rose Hyland Pant
You don’t just want golf pants that look good – but a pair that performs well. The Bonobos Justin Rose Highland Pant is not only sharp on the eyes and soft on the skin, but it’s cleverly designed with elastic panels that aid in movement. The gel shirt’s gripping waistband prevents the half-butt look from booting.
17. Titleist Pro v1
The Titleist Pro V1 is golf’s most popular ball—”providing complete performance from tee to green,” as its makers say. Golf Ball Reviews (And Yes, There Are Many) Overall, tap the VI because it offers the widest range of speed, spin, and aerodynamics. There is no doubt that your player will value more than ten (or two). Remember what we said, the best gifts for golfers are usually very useful.

18. Clover Single Barrel Straight Tennessee Whiskey
When Bobby Jones won the Grand Slam – then known as the impenetrable quadruple – he had a golden four leaf lucky charm in his pocket. This whiskey brand pays homage to his legacy. Sweet and spicy, this is the perfect bottle for a post-tour pump or sharing the course with the rest of the quartet.
19. PXG Lightweight Carrying Case
This workhorse has everything your player needs in a golf bag – and (also important) nothing it doesn’t. Weighing in at a feathery 4.6 pounds, the PXG Lightweight Carrying Case is impressively versatile. Four-point carry straps make it easy on the back. Eight pockets including a microfiber-lined one for your watch or phone, plus ample storage for everything else you’ll need on the course.
20. Walker Model 1.5 Cover
Golf was designed as a walking sport. However, if your player has a tender back, this push cart will keep the game fun, not painful. The Walker Trolley Cape Model 1.5 is the Ferrari of pushcarts. Fast on the cycle, it’s made from quality materials like tarpaulin, leather, and anodized aluminum. This is one of the best gifts for golfers because it literally holds their back.
