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.

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

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.

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 Visio Putting Mirror from Callaway 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.
