Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Uber Wednesday (I just made that up)… Christmas is coming in about a month and it’s time to start thinking about getting the golfer on your gift list some cool gear. I’m here to help. I’ll post a few great suggestions which will be in a fairly broad price range. Each item will be a quick writeup and photo. The title and photo will be linkable to the HOG review where you can get more information. Also be sure to check out the HOG 2017 Christmas/Holiday Golf Apparel Gift Guide.
TecTecTec VPRO500S Laser Rangefinder – $179
This is a high performance laser with slope for a very inexpensive price, rivaling other lasers that can cost over $500.
Snell My Tour Ball – $31.99
The My Tour Ball equals the performance of the highest end balls, like the ProV1. It should. It was designed by the same person who designed it!

For only $20 bucks you can remind the golfer on your gift list exactly what kind of game he/she has.
Indoor-Outdoor Golf Practice Balls – $14.95
Practice makes perfect. Get some reps in inside with these soft practice balls. They won’t break the china.
Stage V Clinger – $14.99
Stage V Clinger Cigar Holder
Looking for a cigar gift? The Stage V Clinger is a great clip which magnetically attaches to metal, or attaches to anything else via velcro.
Tornado Tee – $15
These space age tees have a micro mesh crown which gives way during the compression of the ball at impact. This helps reduce spin and increase distance.

Bushnell Golf Pro X2 Laser Rangefinder
For that golfer on your holiday gift list you really, really, reeeeaallly love… get him/her the best laser rangefinder money can buy, the Bushnell Golf Pro X2.

Bermuda Sands Woodland Polo
In any conditions (hot, cold, wet, dry) this polo is super comfortable and the deep colors look fantastic. Class up your golf gift recipient with this great polo from Bermuda Sands.
Ecco S-Drive Golf Shoes – $160MSRP
I received these Ecco S-Drive golf shoes late in the season and have been using them for a few rounds but haven’t posted my full review yet. Unlike other golf sites and blogs, I actually really test everything I review for many weeks, not just a 3-ball range session. In short, they’re very comfortable right out of the box, and great for wearing on and off the course. Highly recommended.

Golf, skulls, and a bit of attitude make a great gift. Shake it up and get the golfer on your gift list this terrific pair of golf shorts from Tattoo Golf!

Spring, fall, Scotland… Take the edge of the wee cold with this super 1/4 zip pullover from Antigua. It’s stylish, comfortable and comes at a very reasonable price point.

Devereux Cameron polo
A higher-end polo for the discriminating golfer on your gift list. Super classy and stylish and high performance.
aahSoles Green Coral Flip Flops – $30
The funny name isn’t the only selling point for aahSoles. The flip flops are actually extremely comfortable and practically give the bottoms of your feet a tingly massage with every step.
Galvin Green Bart Windstopper Jacket – $275
Do you really really really love someone who golfs, or just loves or needs the most awesome and fantastic outerwear on this planet? Then cash in your 401K and pick up your lucky gift receipient the Bart Windstopper from Galvin Green. There is nothing better. Nothing.
Hats off to the president and vice president of my local men’s golf association at River Oaks in Sandy, Utah. The club has been including very nice gifts for their members as a thank you for signing up for the yearly league. Last year it was a personalized water bottle. When I was president of the league for seven (long) years, I didn’t think of that, though we did give the members a prime rib dinner at the end of the season.
PitchFix Gift Set
This year’s gift is ironically a product I received for review a few weeks ago and which I was about to post about, PitchFix. PitchFix is a switchblade divot tool of very high quality design, style, and workmanship.
The tool comes in a nice branded tin along with two extra ball markers. Very classy.
I also like the fact that the whole men’s association has divot repair tools now. I hope they use them!
This would make a very nice and classy Father’s Day gift. If you want to buy one now, follow this link to several PitchFix models on Amazon.
In for review, the latest awesome item from Tattoo Golf. This could be the most important club in the bag.
A Flask For The Ages
This next golf accessory review is going to take some dedication and plenty of time in the testing phase. I can already guarantee this would be a great Father’s Day gift.
You’ve procrastinated just about long enough, now you’re not sure what to do for the golfer on your Christmas list! Here are a few quick ideas for you, most of which you should be able to pick up just about anywhere golf equipment and accessories are sold, or at your local golf course.
Fill your golfer’s stocking up with golf tees. Seriously. We golfers can never have too many.
I suggest checking out the Tornado Tee, Champ Zarma Fly Tee, or Frogger Green Monsters.
I love having a wet/dry towel in my pocket. It is great to have when I get to the green and realize my ball needs some cleaning and my large towel is far away from me off the green.
I suggest a Frogger Amphibian Ball Towel, which should be available in big box golf stores.
If your golfer wears a glove, pick up one or two. Golf glove wearers can never have enough. If you’re not sure what size or brand to get, sneak a peek inside your golfer’s bag and check out one of his/her gloves in there.
I’m quite fond of Asher Golf Gloves.
Just like golf tees, we golfers can NEVER have enough golf balls! Not sure what brand your golfer likes? Just like the glove gig above, take a peek in his/her bag and see what balls are in there. If it’s a mixture or you’re still not sure, I’d go with a Bridgestone Golf ball.
If your golfer is a low handicap go for the B330 or B330-S, and for a mid-handicap go for the B330-RX or B330-RXS. Higher handicaps perhaps the Bridgestone E-Series balls would be good.
Lessons from a PGA Pro
A gift that will keep on giving for a long time would be some lessons. Any golfer, no matter the ability level, could greatly benefit with lessons from a PGA Pro.
Head to your golfer’s home course or a nearby course and pick up a gift certificate or buy them a set of lessons.
While you’re at your local course, pick up the golfer on your list some GOLF. Most courses sell gift certificates, or even multi-round punch cards.
Pick up the golfer on your list a five or 10 golf round punch card, or perhaps some buckets of balls on the practice range.
If all else fails above, pick up some bacon for the golfer on your Christmas list.
Why? Because: BACON!
