A golf bag is arguably one of the most crucial items any golfer needs, therefore making it the perfect gift for a golfer. And you can’t go wrong with Callaway’s Fairway 14 Stand Bag. A combination of both a cart and stand bag, the Fairway 14 Stand Bag is Callaway’s bestseller for a reason. Featuring full-length dividers for a full-sized 14-way top for optimal club organisation, padded shoulder strap & hip pad for comfort, and nine pockets, which includes a soft-lined waterproof zip valuables pocket, an insulated water bottle pocket, hidden rain hood pocket (and the rain hood’s included!) for easy management of all golf necessities.

Fashion is imperative to golf – so, if you’re looking for a golf gift, apparel that’ll keep your golfer looking his best is a perfect option. The ABC Classic Warpstreme Pant by Lululemon makes for an ace gift as they possess the comfort and flexibility of activewear but camouflage as a pair of trousers. With four-way stretch, wrinkle-resistant and shape retention fabric, the ABC Classic Warpstreme Pant will allow golfers to move freely on the green without getting creased trousers (a golf fashion faux pas). Available in 10 timeless colours, and a variety of sizes and pant lengths, these classic-fit pants will delight any golfer lucky enough to be gifted them.
Most golf enthusiasts will obviously already have their own set of clubs, but it’s safe to say any golfer would be absolutely thrilled to be given the most-iconic and most-played putter insert of all time, right? Well, with Odyssey’s White Hot OG Putter you can do it! The White Hot OG Putter, the most decorated putter insert of all time, features a urethane cover, a luxurious silver PVD finish, and a fine milling along the face, which will help golfers acquire a consistent centre strike & will improve distance control.

Being on the course all day means that golfers need sun protection, so gift them a pair of sunglasses to minimise glare. Ray-Bans are renowned for producing some of the most iconic sunnies ever, so you can’t go wrong gifting a pair of them. Try a Club Master Classic, as they’re a timeless design and any golfer will appreciate the pun of 'Club' Master.
Sometimes the best golf gifts are the simplest. A set of four Zero Friction ZFT Maxx Golf Tees is a gift you can guarantee your golfer will definitely use. The Zero Friction ZFT Maxx provides easier ball placement on the tee due to its extra-large, extra-thick size. They're extra durable, too, and are a staple any golfers would love to receive.
Golf isn’t a seasonal sport so a smart jacket to wear during the cooler months is a great gift! The Barnard Valley Long Sleeve Full Zip by Fairway & Greene is perfect as it will keep your golfer looking his best, while also keeping him warm and comfortable. Available in both classic blue, and the more modern-looking black & grey, pick the colour that suits your golfer’s style and he’ll be thrilled!

Indulge them with the TourTrek Signal Slope Laser Rangefinder. Featuring an LCD display & slope, continuous yardage readings, 6x magnification that provides precise aim for the flagstick, long-lasting battery life plus a whole lot more, the TourTrek Signal Slope Laser Rangefinder will make for a sublime present.

Sometimes things get messy on the golf course so if you’re looking for a smaller gift, the Players Gear Universal Golf Brush is the best way to go. This double-sided cleaning brush easily removes dirt, grass and debris from clubs and golf clubs, and clips easily to either a belt or golf bag so it can’t get lost while playing. We recommend pairing this gift with either the Putter or the Golf Shoes featured above to make your gift extra special.
Another great small gift is this Divot Tool by J&M On Course. These Divot Repair Tools are made from lightweight steel and can double as a spike wrench and a golf club rest. While it’d make a great addition to any of the other gifts featured here, the Divot Tool would also be highly appreciated on its own by any golfer.
As much as golfers don’t want to admit it, sometimes balls do find themselves in water hazards or deep bunkers on the golf course. The Ram Golf 15ft Ball Extending Golf Ball Retriever will save your golfer the trouble of risking getting wet or muddy themselves when retrieving balls that have gone astray. The retriever mechanism grabs balls in an easy snap, collapses down to 4ft to fit in any golf bag, and comes with a deluxe double zip cover to prevent any water or mud from ruining their bag. Just be prepared for your golfer’s ego to pretend they don’t need this gift; the true beauty is they’ll secretly thank you every time they do use it… Which they will.

It’ll easily fit in any back pocket, features an elastic loop for pencils and provides a sturdy writing surface and will elevate your golfer to look like a pro (even if he’s not).
Golfers care deeply about their clubs (especially since they are expensive and imperative to the game) so get your golfer a Ram Golf Premium Vintage Style Headcovers Set to protect them. The headcovers are made from a water resistant PU-leather exterior and a plush lined interior which will keep his clubs from any harm. The vintage design calls back to styles and colour palettes worn by pros in the 70s, 80s and 90s Majors, which gives this headcover set a timeless look he’ll love.

A water bottle will never go astray on the golf course, or in day-to-day life. S’well water bottles stay cold for 24 hours and stay warm for 12, and feature stylish designs. Go the extra mile and get him the Hole In One Bottle, which features a unique golf ball texture. When using the bottle on the green, he’ll love the condensation-free exterior that won’t sweat his hands before taking a swing, and when he uses the bottle at work or home, he’ll love being reminded of golf, making it a top-scoring (or low-scoring in golf terms) gift.
A necessity for any golf lover is a towel to clean their equipment. The Club Golf Finest Microfiber Cart Towel is used by professional Tour players as no other towel is softer or gentler. This premium towel will not scratch glasses, plastic, chrome and other delicate surfaces while cleaning and polishing. The Golf Finest Microfiber Cart Towel really is a step above the rest, so it’s the perfect gift that’ll make golfers actually excited to clean their golf paraphernalia.
Sometimes a golf bag can’t fit everything a golfer needs – like a change of clothes for the post-game drinks, for example. So gift them this sophisticated Daily Duffle bag by Rains. Constructed in Rains’ signature waterproof fabric and boasting a weather-resistant zip, this bag will be perfect on the course no matter what the weather is. Plus, the bag is versatile enough to be used for other ventures making it a delightfully all-purpose gift.
While socks have become infamous as a ‘bad gift’, Stance socks are so comfortable and durable, golfers will actually enjoy these as a gift. Available in a variety of styles and colours, these socks provide moderate, targeted cushioning for ultimate all-day comfort, and engineered arch support for improved stabilisation (which is imperative to taking a perfect swing). Trust us, these socks won’t be scoffed at when they’re unwrapped.
Although most golfers want to spend all their time on the course, they can’t. But, you can give them a book which they can devour in their down-time.
