Man it is November already. This year has flown by. I already saw a Christmas tree erected downtown here near a shopping mall. With the holiday season approaching I will be posting my annual golf gift guides. Call them Christmas golf gift guides or holiday golf gift guides. Whatever your politically correct leanings are.

If you have a product you would like to see featured in said gift guides please read on. Because I cover so many product submissions and spend so much time reviewing products, my gift guides feature only products I’ve reviewed in the past year. That way the reader can see the full review and I can help regenerate some traffic to those reviews. If I’ve already reviewed your product this year, there’s not much else to do other than send me a note. If you want to have a product featured which I have not reviewed or received, theres still time, but not much.

Some of the categories I cover include golf equipment, golf apparel, golf accessories.

You can visit the product review submissions page and guidelines for info on submitting a product.

Cheers.


Golf Cigar Aficionado – Romeo Y Julieta House of Capulet Toro

Christmas is coming up soon and what better way to spread the holiday cheer than with a fine Honduran cigar? How about this one, the Romeo Y Julieta House of Capulet Toro?

Medallas de Oro Romeo Y Julieta

Medallas de Oro Romeo Y Julieta

  • Strength: Medium
  • Shape: Toro
  • Size: 6 x 52
  • Country: Honduras
  • Wrapper Color: Natural
  • Wrapper Origin: Ecuadorian
  • Wrapper Leaf: Connecticut

This cigar is a very tasty cigar for my not-so-professional cigar taste, not too strong.  Medium strength is good for me.  The flavor stays consistent, even toward the end of the cigar’s life where some can get a bit nasty.  This size will last me several holes to perhaps 1/3 of a round on the golf course, or about 40-60 minutes on the front porch.  Even the lovely bride, who is a newb to cigars, enjoys this one despite the strength being a little bit higher than she would prefer.

The numbers for me don’t lie.  My golf scores when enjoying a fine cigar are a good 40% better.  I’m not kidding.  Perhaps it is that the cigar helps me relax, or perhaps keeps my mind eating itself with bad memories of the last 3-putt.  Out of courtesy I always give my opponents an opportunity to surrender as I light up my next cigar.

Well it is that time of year, the “gift guides” are all over the blogosphere now. Ah, I remember back in the days when I did one of the only golf blog Christmas gift guides. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Golf Gift Idea: University Themed Golf Bag

I need another golf bag like I need a hole in the head.  But I had some pro shop money which was about to expire and this lovely University of Utah Utes themed golf bag caught my eye.

Utah Utes Golf Bag
This is a great golf Christmas gift idea, a University themed golf bag. Most local pro shops around these parts at most of the golf courses have these bags for the local colleges and universities. If you have a person on your Christmas (holiday for you PC people) gift list, check with your local golf course or golf shop about a golf bag themed with your recipient’s favorite team.
