Golf Gifts for Father's Day - 6 Suggestions To Make An Impression

Golf Gifts for Father's Day

Golf Gifts for Father's Day by thegolfgirl featuring Arctic Cool, Tourney, Parallel Putter and more. 

As holiday's go, Father's Day lends itself quite well to golfers, falling as does in mid-June, when the sport is... in full swing.

Tournaments (both professional and amateur) are taking place continually and the golf shops are well stocked with the latest equipment, apparel and accessories.

So if you're shopping for a Dad who loves the game, you're probably considering a golf gift. But with all the choices it's not always easy to focus in and find the perfect present.  To that end, we've got a few suggestions:

1. Give Him A Piece Of Golf History

Golden Age Golf Cocktail Shaker

For something truely unique check out eBay Golf Antiques (where I found this golf cocktail shaker for my husband) or head over to one of the amazing sites that specializes in golf antiques and collectibles. Golf Links to the Past is one of my favorites, GolfAntiquesOnLine is another.  The array of items available is amazing!

2. Give Him An Innovative Putter

Parallel Putter - Game Changing Innovation

Drive for show, putt for dough. We all know that saying... and most of us agree with it.  So why is there so little innovation in putter design ? Probably because so many golfers are reluctant to change their putter...even when it's clearly not working. Well, Parallel Putter truly IS innovative, with a side shaft design that helps with some of the most common putting mistakes. And it's approved by the USGA.  If you're gifting a Dad who regularly 3 (or 4/5) putts this could be just the gift that finally moves him to try something different.

3. Give Him An Entire Outfit

Golf Guy Style

A quality polo shirt in an unexpected shade, an elegant pullover for layering or a classic pair of chinos made especially for golf; each would be an excellent gift on its own, but if you can, why not put the whole thing together for him?  With the iconic Tourney golf brand now producing afordable apparel this might be the perfect year to give him the outfit... in its entirety.  

4. Give Him The Balls of His Dreams

Chromax Golf Balls - Purple Is My Preference 

They may not be shiny or purple... like my favorite Chromax golf balls... but most golfers have a particular brand and model of ball they covet.  Find out exactly what it is and give him a 12 pack.

5. Give Him Something Ultra Cool

Father's Day comes at the start of summer.  If only there was a gift to help him handle the heat, right? Turns out there is! Arctic Cool makes instant cooling shirts;  polos for the golf course and crewnecks for the range. They also make a cooling towel... for added refreshment.   

6. Give Him A Golf Experience

That's The Ticket

Lastly, there's the experiential golf gift where possibilities are limited only by your imagination... and, well... your budget.  That said, a round of golf would surely be appreciated. Choose a local favorite or a far flung fantasy course. Or, if he's a fan, consider tickets to a professional tournament in your area... The Travelers Championship always works well for our gifting.  And if this is the year for a splurge, definitely consider that once-in-a-lifetime ticket to The Masters . Personally, I'd love to offer my husband a fabulous trip to France for the 2018 Ryder Cup... but I'm afraid I can't quite swing it. Well, Italy 2022 is a possibility and that leaves us something to look forward to.     Happy Father's Day to golf dads everywhere.
