If your dad is into golfing, he probably spends a lot of time on the course perfecting his game. There are tons of products out there to help him improve whether he’s teeing up or sinking a putt with one calculated stroke. Luckily, that means there are countless gifts from which to choose at many affordable-to-expensive prices. But if you’re easily muddled by too many options, just choose one of these 5 gifts that are among 2017’s best golf gifts for dad:
You can never go wrong with buying premium golf balls for a golf lover. And if you’re looking for one of the best golf balls of the year, look no further than Titleist. The #1 ball in golf does not disappoint with their Titleist Pro V1 golf balls. According to Titleist, this model focuses on both exceptional distance and drop-and-stop short game control, making it an all-around perfect gift for Dad this year.
During a long day on the course, the last thing your father wants to do is constantly retie his shoelaces. So why not get rid of tying all together? Lock Laces® are elastic no-tie shoelaces that use a sliding lock mechanism for tightening and loosening rather than traditional tying. They stay snug while being completely non-restrictive, naturally stretching with your father’s feet as they expand throughout his day on the course. And did we mention Lock Laces® are water-resistant? They’re stylish and comfortable both on and off the course, so make sure to pick up a pair for his tennis shoes, too.
It’s all about the data. It’s extremely hard to improve your game if you don’t know what you’re doing wrong. The Arccos 360 Performance Tracking System will record, analyze and reveal strengths and weaknesses for every shot your father makes. According to Arccos, the system breaks down a golfer’s handicap into five building blocks: driving, approach, chipping, sand and putting. Although the tracking system pairs with a smart phone, it won’t drain your dad’s battery during long games because it still tracks data when a phone is set in airplane mode.
Practice is key to improvement. If your dad is looking to improve his putting at home, consider giving him the Putt-A-Bout Grassroots Putting Green. The Putt-A-Bout isn’t your typical at-home putting green; it is kidney-shaped and has built-in sand trap cutouts that catch missed shots. Instead of having only one practice hole, the Putt-A-Bout has three, so your father will never get bored with the variety of possible strokes. Measuring at 3 x 9 feet, this practice putting green will fit in nearly any room and, if necessary, can be tucked away for storage when not in use.
Since the course is one of your dad’s dearest places, you can never go wrong by buying him an 18-hole game at one of his favorite courses. It will give him the perfect excuse to spend the day improving his game while socializing with his golf friends. If you’re not sure which course your dad prefers, try searching for popular golf courses in the area that offer beautiful or challenging terrain, depending on your father’s skill level.
