The first game of golf was first played way back in the 1400s, in cold, ancient Scotland; and yet it stood the test of time, as it’s still widely and globally popular in 2021. It’s even become a common business tool, with some companies holding board meetings on the green. While proven to improve physical and mental health, the key to a perfect game of golf is having the best possible equipment whilst looking effortlessly fashionable.
So, if you have a golfer in your life (which, be honest, we all do), and you don’t know what to get them for Father’s Day, Birthday, or Christmas, help them out by upgrading their golf instruments & wardrobe. Whether it’s your Dad, your brother, or one of your mates, if you need a present that’ll be his cup of tee… look no further!
We’ve rounded up these must-have items for golfers, all of which will make an un-fore-gettable gift for men.
G/FORE Golf Gloves
Gloves are an essential element to any golfer’s wardrobe, so make your golfer the envy of everyone else on the green by gifting them The Collection Glove from G/FORE. The Collection Glove is the best of the best when it comes to golf gloves; made from 100% cabretta leather, The Collection Glove is sophisticated, comfortable and built to last. Available in a variety of colours, this gift is perfect for any golfer.
Although, if you're looking for a cooler, more-modern glove that'll wow them, we love G/FORE's Delta Force Camo Glove.
Rhone Polo Shirt
If you’re looking for more bang for your buck, keep your gift simple with Rhone’s Delta Pique Polo. Although the polo was designed specifically for golf, it’s versatile enough to be put into your golfer’s everyday wardrobe. Featuring a raglan sleeve with shoulder articulation, the Delta Pique Polo allows for better arm movement, a necessity for playing golf. It also boasts cooling & anti-odor technology which will keep golfers feeling fresh for all 18 holes. The Delta Pique Polo is available in either a short sleeve or long sleeve, and comes in both modern and classic colours, so you can customise it to your golfer’s style.
Callaway Golf Bag
Arguably, a golf bag is one of the most quintessential 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. Callaway’s lightweight Fairway 14 Stand bag is a crucial need for any golfer, so if you want to give a gift that’ll definitely be a hole in one, this is it.
Lululemon Classic Pant
Fashion is imperative to golf; therefore if you’re looking for a gift, apparel that’ll keep your golfer looking his best is a perfect option. The ABC Classic Warpstreme Pant by Lululemon make 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. If you want a gift that’ll really impress a golfer, look no further.
Ray Ban Sunglasses
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 the most iconic styles of sunnies, 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.
Zero Friction Golf Tees
Sometimes the best gift is the simplest. A set of four Zero Friction ZFT Maxx Golf Tees can guarantee your golfer will definitely use them. The Zero Friction ZFT Maxx’s provide easier ball placement on the tee due to their extra large, extra thick and extra durability, and are a staple golfers will love to receive.
Fairway & Greene Jacket
Golf isn’t a seasonable 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!
Cuater Golf Shoes
You really can’t go wrong with The Ringer, Cuater’s Premium Performance Tour Golf Shoe. Any golfer will love the waterproof construction, air-mesh lining for breathability and moisture management, removable Softspikes Pivix cleats for traction and stability, and the SweetSpot Cushioning System: layers of cushioning and support that provide all day comfort.

Optishot Golf In A Box
If you really want to spoil your golfer, you can do it with Golf In A Box. This kit comes with all the essentials for building your own golf room at home.

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.
J&M On Course Divot Tool
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 spike wrench and a 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 make their way into the water. 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 ruining their golf 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.

The headcovers are made from a water resistant PU-leather exterior and a plush lined interior which will keep his clubs from any harm.
