1. Bushnell Wingman Golf GPS Speaker

Once famous mainly for its binoculars and related gadgets, Bushnell now makes some of the golf industry’s best range finders using laser technology or GPS. The Wingman is a more entertaining version of those gadgets. It’s a fully functional Bluetooth speaker that will throw out a player’s favorite music. Then, a quick click orders the device to read the distance to the pin. Finally, its onboard battery will recharge cellular devices. The whole set magnetically clamps onto any golf cart to ride along for a well-equipped round.

2. Bagboy Push Cart Fan

Not every piece of golf technology has to engage GPS or use precious metals to get the job done. Sometimes all a player needs is something to keep a cool head. This simple gadget attaches to any walking golf push cart and propels a steady stream of fresh air while the golfer walks between shots. Armed with a rechargeable battery, the Bagboy Push Cart Fan doesn’t reinvent the wheel. It just cools it off nicely.

3. Cleveland Golf Smart Sole 4 Wedge

The only actual, modern and functioning golf club on this list, the latest Cleveland Golf Smart Sole 4 Wedge is specially designed for short, delicate shots that require maximum touch and feel. Weighted to maximize force at the bottom of the club, the wedge’s wide, smooth sole is designed for the best possible forgiveness — avoiding both skulling and chunking. Keep a supple wrist and a baby bird grip, and this Cleveland club will do the job from the bunker or the rough.

4. Linksoul Woods

Perhaps more decorative than practical, these Linksoul clubs harken back to a time when a player’s 1 Wood was really made of wood. Handmade in Kentucky, these clubs are made of true North American persimmon trees. That’s the same material that provided the clubs for Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. A modern player can take these woods to the course for a challenge, but they’re pretty enough to serve as decorations wherever golf clubs live. This isn’t a budget golf gift, but it’s the perfect conversation for a sophisticated billiards room or clubhouse.

5. YETI Hopper M30 Soft Cooler

This is a very self-explanatory arrangement. Like, does anybody go golfing without bringing a couple of brews to sip? Because if so, props to them. Your golfer will love the YETI Hopper M30 soft cooler. It keeps drinks freezing cold for hours on end and stays shut with magnetic clasps so nothing will ever spill.

6. I’d Tap That Can Coolie

So, if they are drinking a couple of cold ones when putting, they need a way to keep their drinks cool — or at least looking cool. This funny “I’d Tap That” can coolie is everything your favorite golfer needs to stay sipping in style when on the green. It’s definitely more of a gag gift, but we’re sure they’ll appreciate it.

7. Himal Soft-Sided Golf Travel Bag

Speaking as golfers who lost clubs to airline baggage handlers, we know the value of anything that protects sticks in transit. The Himal Soft-Sided Golf Travel Bag caps down on the business end of a golf bag and protects the club heads inside from impacts that can bend hosels and break club shafts.

8. Vessel Cool Daddy Cooler Stool

When a weary golfer needs to take a break from the day’s round, he or she looks for a cold drink and a place to sit. Vessel offers both with the Cool Daddy Cooler Stool. It’s ready for a round of golf as it fits in the storage container of any cart. It can also accompany clubs to the driving range. The interior is insulated to keep beverages icy, and the external pockets are set apart to keep other items dry.

9. Genuine EyeLine Golf Putting Alignment Mirror

Go to any driving range and you’ll find no shortage of players gripping and ripping for the seats. They plow through one bucket of balls after another because it’s fun to swing away. Meanwhile, if you look over to the putting green, you’ll be lucky to see a handful of players practicing their short game. Those folks are the real golfers because they realize the putter is the one club you’re going to need on almost every golf hole. The Genuine EyeLine Golf Putting Alignment Mirror allows a golfer to work on both takeaway and follow through with a unique reflective perspective. A player will save strokes putting it to regular use. For serious golfers, this is one of the best golf gifts we’ve founded yet.

10. Volt Electric Heated Gloves

We know what a reader might be saying here. This is a golf gift list. These are winter gloves. Were they stuck on 19 items here? No. This is a very deliberate inclusion aimed at those players in colder climates who look to extend their golf year well into autumn before picking it up again very early in spring. When temperatures are still hovering in the 30s, a pair of heated electric gloves like these outstanding Volt selections can slip on and off to keep a player’s hands warm between shots.

11. Club Casual Slip-On

These slip-ons from Footjoy are some of the best shoes of 2021, and they’re also one of the year’s best gifts for golf lovers. Sure, they might look a bit like TOMS, but that’s because this brand has brought a truly unique slip-on design to these new golf shoes. They’re the perfect summer golf shoes for laid-back players, and they’re the kind of thing a golfer might not but for themselves. Don’t let their unassuming appearance fool you. These shoes are fully ready for the green, with studded treads and supportive insoles that can keep up with the best golf footwear.

12. Hulislem S1 Sport Polarized Sunglasses

Sunglasses are a classic gift for dad, but they’re also a great purchase for golf lovers. If your giftee isn’t packing the right pair of sunglasses, dealing with that powerful sun glare could make all the difference between an average round and a great one. These Hulislem polarized sunglasses come in a bunch of different styles, feature an impressive UV-400 flash coating to help block out spotty sunlight and are extremely lightweight — making them the perfect sunglasses for golfing.

13. Under Armour Men’s Tech Golf Polo

With new trips to the golf course approaching, it’s important to update your giftee’s wardrobe to withstand the weather. This Under Armour Tech Golf Polo is at the top of its game when it comes to keeping a player dry to focus on the game instead. It also features game-changing anti-odor technology that lets the wearer stay fresher longer — while also preventing the buildup of unwanted microbes. Available in 36 different colors, there’s a perfect color for everyone.

14. Putt-A-Bout Grassroots Par Three Putting Green

Have a few pals that are going a little stir-crazy because they’re not able to practice their game outside? With this putting aid, they’ll work on their form in the comfort of their living room. The elevated three holes make it feel like the real deal, and at nine feet long it offers a useful range. The high-quality putting surface adds extra stability. Easy to roll and to store, this mat is the perfect gift for low-handicappers and newbies alike.

15. Golf Club Groove Sharpener

Because golf clubs are an investment, keep them in tip-top shape with these affordable and easy-to-use club sharpener. Featuring a sturdy metal construction, it’s designed to help restore your clubs and wedges to all their former shiny glory. Compatible with both U- and V-grooves, it’s small enough to fit in most bags. In fact, your pal can even keep it in their pocket. A great investment that’s definitely worth the $7 asking price. (Be warned. Cleaning the grooves on your irons is legal. Sharpening them really is not.)

16. Clothlete Greenside Microfiber Golf Towel

There’s nothing more inconvenient than the feeling of your club slipping when the palm of your non-glove hands gets sweaty. When simply switching gloves won’t do, try these hardworking microfiber towels. The snap-on buttons make attaching these towels to their golf bag a breeze. Each purchase comes with three towels (black, gray and white). Your giftee can also snap two towels together and make a caddy towel. This set truly is as versatile as it is functional.

17. Caddyswag Par 6 Pack Golf Bag Cooler

The third cooler-related item on this list proves golf and adult beverages are forever wed, especially if you’re shopping for the best golf gifts in the summertime. Your friends probably already own a cooler bag, but can it fit perfectly in the side pocket of their golf bag? We didn’t think so. That’s why they need to up their game with this insulated cooler bag from Caddyswag. With a capacity for your favorite six-pack and a reusable freezer insert, this golf bag cooler can keep drinks cold for up to four hours, which is definitely enough time to work up a thirst.

18. Callaway Golf Trunk Locker

This awesome trunk organizer from Callaway is basically the clown car of golf products, and we mean that in a good way. With enough space to fit shoes, balls, tees, gloves and more, it compacts nicely into a manageable 19 x 15 x 6.5-inch bag. Durable, water-resistant and designed to last, it’s perfect for organizing your golf locker.

19. Garmin Approach S10, Lightweight GPS Golf Watch

In addition to being a seriously sweet everyday watch, this Garmin smartwatch moonlights as an everyday golf instructor. Everyone will be seriously impressed with just how much better their long game has become in such a short time as this watch utilizes GPS to read the distance to the flag.

20. Anyork Golf Rangefinder 6X Laser Range Finder

For up-and-coming golfers who are looking to take their game to the next level, this golf rangefinder is a must. Able to both measure distance and configure trajectory settings, it makes it easier to hit those epic shots without having to add guesswork to the equation. Portable, lightweight and easy to use, it even features a smart LCD display so the user can see the exact stats no matter the weather.

21. Chippo Golf

Anyone can smash a drive a couple of hundred yards down the fairway. It takes great skill, touch and focus to play the short game around the greens. Looking a bit like the child of a corn hole board and an astroturf golf mat, the Chippo Golf game offers three net targets a player can shoot for from nearby, developing the kind of relaxed, deft chip shots near the putting surface demand. It’s a practice tool for the lone golfer and a yard game for friends.

22. Sun Mountain ClubGlider Meridian

The traditional golf club travel bag pulls from the top with a set of two wheels on the rear of the bag. The Sun Mountain ClubGlider includes a pull-down set of two additional wheels that transforms the bag into more maneuverable and manageable four-wheeled luggage. While the ClubGlider is designed first for Sun Mountain’s own collection of golf bags, it will fit most other brands.

23. Royal Albartross The Driver Brown

One of the younger brands in the golf shoe game, Royal Albartross wants to take on the luxury market with sophisticated designs and the finest materials. They make golf shoes a player can wear for a lifetime of play. Starting out, the London-based company stuck with traditional, even conservative aesthetics. That changes with the new SS20 line — shoes that maintain the same excellent build quality while offering more casual styling and playful colors. If the golf lover has plans after a round, these great looking shoes transition well to life off the links.

We love the Driver Brown specifically because of the small styling details, plus the overall comfort. The pops of blue on the sole and the stitching help give the shoe a unique look, while the supple leather makes them extremely comfortable, even after a long game. If you’re looking for an overall great shoe for a golfer at any level, this is the one to get.

24. Everlane 7″ Slim Fit Performance Chino Short

Everlane’s 7″ Slim Fit Performance Chino Short are low-key and designed for extreme playing comfort. They have a four-way stretch that’s both cozy and good-looking on an. Made of high-quality materials, the designers added a little extra stretch for that big hip turn or the long bend down to pick your golf ball out of the cup.

25. Acu-Strike Golf Mat

Once a player learns the basics of a golf swing — stance, grip, takeaway, release, followthrough, etc. — he or she faces the most common challenge for any amateur player. A well-struck golf shot needs the club head to strike the ball first before hitting the ground and taking any divot. A 2019 Best New Project Winner at the PGA Merchandise Show, the Acu-Strike Golf Mat allows the practicing golfer to see in its fabric where the club touched the ground. Whether he or she hits behind the mark or ball-forward, the mat will reveal all. A simple swipe erases the mark. So, it’s swing, read, erase, repeat.

Acu-Strike
  

26. Loudmouth Golf

Remember when we mentioned that some golfers prefer to stick with long pants to show respect for the game? It’s safe to say devotees of Loudmouth Golf are not members of that particular fraternity. That’s not to say wearing a pair of these bold, colorful and often irreverent pants means the wearer doesn’t love the sport. He just likes a little peacocking now and again.

Loudmouth Golf
 

27. Callaway Mavrik

A massively popular debut last year, the Callaway Mavrik lives up to the hype. Created with a beautiful, sloping, tapered shape that reduces drag and increases speed throughout the swing, the Mavrik feels perfectly balanced in the hands. The big clubface is reassuring, and Callaway built titanium into that clubface to provide additional compression at the point of impact. Callaway will sell a lot of these, and it’ll become a fixture on the best courses amongst players who are serious about game improvement for years.

28. Vice Pro Soft Golf Balls

Vice Golf doesn’t have the longstanding reputation of Callaway or the high-tech reputation of Mizuno, but this newcomer to the golf scene is already making some of the best golf balls in the world. Available with varying core designs and coverings, Vice Golf wants to appeal to every player, from high to low handicappers, whether he or she is looking for distance, spin or soft landings. The Pro Soft compress more on impact and offer more length off the tee. Like most soft golf balls, they can be more difficult to control around the greens. So, high handicap players get more distance, but low handicap players might have more trouble with shot-making.

29. Honma T//World W4 Wedge

Honma makes beautiful golf clubs, and the Honma T//World W4 Wedge fits in with the family nicely with its graceful lines and smoothly shaped sole. Designed ideally for turf use, especially in the rough, that smooth bottom edge improves what Honma calls “turf interaction.” That means “…it gets through the grass nicely…” to the rest of us. At the higher loft numbers like 58 or 60, you’ll really see some nice backspin off more lofted shots.

30. Ahead USA Arnold Palmer Performance Cobalt Blue Cap

For many players, golf and hats go together like soccer and boredom (sorry, “football” fans). Now, your favorite golfer can roam around the green in style sporting this blue-as-it-gets Arnold Palmer cap ready to block the sun at all times. And if you’re worried your giftee might not know who Arnold Palmer is, don’t worry, they know who Arnold Palmer is. He’s not just a drink, guys.

31. Wilson Staff “The L” Infinite Putter

Wilson Golf is always on duty making sure beginner golfers or players on more of a budget have strong club choices. The company offers 16 variations of putter designs, with none of them costing more than $100. Wilson Staff’s “The L” comes from the Infinite Putter line and includes seven head shapes for personal preferences. Focused on game improvement, “The L” Infinite offers accurate counter-balancing to help the up-and-coming golfer control the putting stroke.

32. Finn Cycle

This isn’t a golf cart. You don’t push it. You don’t pull it. You ride it — all while looking cooler than any other golfer on the course. Essentially a fat-tired electric scooter, the Finn Cycle can cut golf round time in half as each “born to be wild” player zips to his or her own ball. While it’s obviously pricey for a golf toy, the machine is available on a growing number of courses as a rental option.

Finn Cycle Finn Cycle
  

33. BirdieBalls

Put simply, a curved, hollow BirdieBall behaves like a traditional golf ball. It will get up in the air. It’ll draw and fade. It’ll land softly. It just won’t travel more than 40 yards. It’s popular for those looking to practice at full speed in limited space environments. A player can swing and full speed and still walk over to pick up the result. The only question is how they get them off of the birdies.

BirdieBall
  

34. GolfLogix Plus 12 Month Subscription

The GolfLogix app brings detailed hole readouts to the user on thousands of golf courses. Complete with shot distances, topographical features and green scans to indicate putt breaks, GolfLogix helps a player see a golf track as only modern technology can. The app is available for iOs and Android devices, including smartwatches. A 12-month membership unlocks all of the app’s features across all devices.  

For players who want similar data, but in a less gadget-oriented way, GolfLogix also produces yardage and putt break Greenbooks for many significant courses.

35. Breakthrough Putter Shaft

The custom-made Breakthrough Golf Technology Stability Shaft replaces the steel of the standard putter with eight layers of carbon fiber. The idea is to firm up the putter and remove torsion (a fancy word for wiggling) from any putting stroke. While it can certainly improve any golfer’s putting ability, the Breakthrough Shaft is particularly useful for the older golfer whose wrists might not be as strong or stable as they once were. Send them your putter, and they’ll send it back with a shaft they guarantee will put the buyer in a better place on the greens.

Breakthrough
  

36. Swing Align

The best time to learn good swing mechanics is when a player first decides to pick up the game of golf. If a golfer comes to the sport as a child, he or she can learn from the ground up and find a comfortable swing at an early age. For adults coming to the party a little later, getting to the Swing Align trainer early can help them learn proper swing path, arm position, hip turn and other key physical functions. 

Swing Align
  

37. Runytek Golf Putting Cup

An executive golf classic, this putting cup is designed to turn any carpet — or hardwood, if you’re playing Pebble Beach – into a putting green. The Runytek gives you a target you can lay down anywhere from the office to home to the range (if you wisely put in between shots while hitting a bucket of balls). The hinged edges offers a little extra resistance at the end of the putt, training you to avoid the yips and leaving it short.

Runytek
  

38. Frogger Golf BrushPro

I once had a golf coach that warned us all he would send us home from the range or golf course if we showed up with dirty golf clubs. That taught us all to clean our clubs regularly after practice days and after rounds. Not only does the practice show respect for the game, but the grooves and leading edges of golf clubs also work better when they’re clean. The Frogger Golf BrushPro has different brush strengths to clean club faces and a spike to clean grooves.

Frogger
  

39. Arccos Caddie

The Arccos Caddie system employs a mix of a free app and specially designed sensors that plug into the any standard club grip. The sensor caps work with the app to offer up accurate data on shot requirements, average club distances, range-finding to the pin and advanced swing analytics. All added together, Arccos really does behave like a caddy on hand to aid your round. It just can’t carry your clubs.

Arccos
  

40. TecTecTec ULT-G Golf GPS Watch

Hand-held, laser rangefinders work well for getting a read on the distance to the pin. Still, they require a player to put down the club, unpack the device, take a laser shot, etc. For the player who simply doesn’t want that delay, the TecTecTec ULT-G Watch keeps all of that distance reading right on the wrist. Using standard GPS settings worked into thousands of courses, the comfortably weighted watch needs only a quick glance to let the wearer know distances to course hazards and to the front, middle and back of greens.

TecTecTec
  

41. Qwik-Fold 3 Wheel Push Pull Golf Cart

The manufactures over at Qwik-Fold promise their 3 Wheel Push Pull Golf Cart will fold and unfold in a snap, and they mean that literally. Taking one second to open and close, the Qwik-Fold 3 Wheel comes with a handy (or “footy”) pedal brake to keep it in place on inclines. The design throws in an umbrella stand and a drink holder for kicks.

42. TaylorMade Truss TM2

With an inventive hosel design, cutting edge alloys and excellent balance, the TM2 puts the ball where I aim it every time. That builds confidence on the greens. Its TaylorMade engineers designed the forked mallet layout of the putter to look like a more traditional putter from above so it doesn’t throw off the golfer.

TaylorMade
 

43. Bonobos Classic Pique Polo

You can’t send your favorite golfer out on the green without gifting them a classic polo from Bonobos. For real, these polos are made in an array of bright colors and fun patterns to show they’re totally worth wearing when putting with pals. Ask them their favorite color in passing and pick one up before his next outing.

44. Mizuno Elite

This scribe switched to the Mizuno mid-season and stayed with it. Designed to maintain its soft feel through multiple uses with fine leather and layered stitching, the Mizuno Elite works in patches of flex mesh material to add extra flexibility and breathability — reducing sweat inside the glove. Using a bit less leather with the mesh filling in, the Elite is a more affordable option from a trusted golf brand.

45. Ping G410+

“Forgiveness” is a nice way for a company to say to a golfer, “You’re not very good. Here’s golf club technology that will make up for some of your deficiencies.” The Ping G410+ isn’t just selling forgiveness, it really provides it. Movable weights along the outside edge of the club can correct ball flight if you hook or slice. Finally, the Trajectory Tuning 2.0 shaft is adjustable to add or reduce loft.

46. Amazon Essentials Men’s Straight-fit Stretch Golf Pant

We already mentioned that golfers from less agreeable climates stick to long pants for protection from the elements. So, these stretchy gold pants from Amazon Essentials are exactly what your golfer needs to keep their legs safe when on the green. They’re available in a number of colors and a load of sizes, too.

47. MyJoys

For the golfer who demands very precise specs — while looking for equally en pointe styling – FootJoy began offering its bespoke MyJoys service in 2003. After navigating through a simple menu of style, color and material choices, the player emerges with a pair of unique FootJoy shoes made exclusively for one, very dedicated golfer’s feet with only a modest additional charge for the individuality.

48. Stewart Golf StaffPro Cart Bag

Featuring stylish aesthetics and strong build quality, the StaffPro is specifically made to work with Stewart’s suite of high tech Follow Carts — essentially robot caddies that carry the cart bag a few paces behind the well-heeled player. Even if the buyer can’t afford the $2,499 A.I. caddie, the StaffPro offers plenty on its own. This golf bag comes with 14 dividers, nine pockets and a large rain hood. Still, it begs you to snag its robot partner for the full effect.

49. Bushnell Tour V5 Shift

Bushnell sets the game’s standard for golf laser rangefinders. The Tour V5 Shift sits one tick below the top of the company’s line at $399. It comes with plenty of practical features, such as a durable, high-impact design and its BITE Magnetic Mount for convenient attachments to golf carts. Still, it’s the Bushnell Slope Compensation technology that sets the Tour V5 apart. Onboard A.I. reads elevation changes and adjusts distance readout to match to allow the best possible club selection.

50. The Net Return

Quickly establishing themselves as the maker of essential golf practice tools, the people at Net Return build outstanding catch-alls for home practicing. Perfect for the dedicated golfer who wants to work on his or her game at home, anytime, day or night, indoors or outdoors, a sturdy, well-designed Net Return allows you to practice any kind of shot without doing damage to surrounding property.
