I recently posted an article for those of you shopping for Father’s Day with a budget of $50 or less, Great Father’s Day Golf Gifts Under $50.  Today’s Father’s Day gift guide is for those with a larger budget, $50 and up.  What’s the limit?  Let’s find out.  In my gift guide I will include products I’ve reviewed here at Hooked On Golf Blog and a link to the original review so you can get some detailed information and product links.

Ecco Tour Hybrid Wingtip Golf Shoes - click to see more

Ecco Tour Hybrid Wingtip Golf Shoes – $190

The Ecco Tour Hybrid combines classy traditional wingtip dress shoe design with a hybrid golf/street sole.  You can wear these beauties to work or the golf course.  Ecco is famous for great performance and high comfort and the Tour Hybrid Wingtip meets that expectation.

FootJoy M:Project Golf Shoe

FootJoy M:Project Golf Shoes – $145

Not just one shoe recommendation in this article.  Equal opportunity blogging here.  I’ve been digging the light weight and high performance of the FootJoy M:Project golf shoes.  These are a departure for my pals at the normally conservative FootJoy, and a good one. My M:Projects are quite possibly the most comfortable FootJoys I own and likely my primary choice for the hard ground in St. Andrews next month.

Rukk Net Golf Practice Net

Rukk Net – Portable Golf Practice Net – $199

I had this net setup in my basement over the winter and it really gave me a great way to keep the golf swing somewhat loose during those long winter months.  Now that the weather is warmer, I have the net setup in my back yard.  Sometimes I secretly wish the net would fail and my errant practice ball would find the cranium of the neighbor lady’s yelping poodle.  I can dream.  The Rukk Net is super solid and can handle shots from every club in the bag, but I wouldn’t recommend putting into it.  Setup and teardown is a breeze, just a few seconds.

Ecco Leather Men's BeltEcco Leather Golf Belts – $100

Ecco is widely known for the superb leather they use to make their fine shoes.  They own their own tanneries.  That same fine leather is now available in these super stylish leather golf belts which come in three colors.  I have a white and brown one.  They’re fantastic.

Cobra Amp Cell Driver - RedCobra Golf – Amp Cell Driver – $299

I’m not necessarily into matching my golf clubs with my apparel.  I AM into crushing my driver long distances and hitting about 80% of my fairways.  That’s exactly what I’m doing with the Amp Cell Driver by Cobra Golf.  This is a very sharp looking adjustable driver which comes in four colors.  I chose red and it is a beauty.  It is also a beauty when I outdrive my friends opponents…

Miura New Wedge SeriesMiura New Wedge Series – $$$$$

I didn’t want to even hit this wedge for fear of putting a scratch or ding in it.  I almost just mounted it on the wall in my office here at HOG World Headquarters.  This club is a thing of beauty only surpassed by the incredible feel and performance it produces.  Miura’s clubs are not for those on a limited budget.  If you have to ask how much this club is, it is probably out of your budget range…

Sky Caddie Golf GPS BreezeSkyCaddie Breeze Golf GPS

GPS technology is getting better and better, and less expensive.  For you golfers who like to use GPS units, the SkyCaddie Breeze is a solid and inexpensive choice.  The unit comes pre-loaded with 30,000 courses, tracks your scores/stats and measures club distances.

Sun Mountain Micro Cart – $199

This review is a little old but this cart still rules.  The Sun Mountain Micro Cart is a 4-wheel golf push cart, “trolley” for those of you in the UK.  The unit folds to a very small and manageable size for the trunk or the garage.  Note: I have the new “sport” version of this cart and I’m in the process of reviewing it now.  Stay tuned.

Golf At Black Mesa Golf Club, New Mexico – Affordable

For my final and grand Father’s Day golf gift idea I’m recommending you book dad (and me) a trip to New Mexico to play golf at my favorite course in the USA, Black Mesa Golf Club.  There are two golf courses in the world which have made me consider moving to be close to them, the Old Course at St. Andrews and Black Mesa.  It is THAT good.

Dad can stay in the Santa Claran Hotel in town, a nice new hotel built by the Santa Clara Pueblo.
