Golf is one of the few games that can be enjoyed by both men and women, by the young and the elder, by experienced pros and first time players, in a group or completely solo. While it’s nearly impossible to be a great golfer, everyone can understand the challenge that is the game of golf – and buy a lot of equipment trying to both show their love for the game and improve it. If you know a golf fan who fits any of the above descriptions, a well thought out golf themed gift is a great option for them.
Before choosing a gift, think about what they need. Maybe they’re set on clubs but need some golf attire. Maybe they already look the part but they could really use an upgraded set of irons. Maybe they’re all set for the course, but they’d love to show off their hobby at work or at home.
We’ve put together a list of the top 20 best golf gifts. We’re confident you’ll find something for the golf enthusiast you’re shopping for but if you don’t find something they’ll love there, browse some other great golf gifts to find something that’s just right. If you’re not sure exactly what they need, gift an Amazon gift card and let them choose for themselves.
1. Suncast Golf Organizer
Golf equipment is bulky and can take up a lot of space when there’s no proper place to store it. It often winds up propped up in a corner or kept in the trunk of a car, taking up valuable space. The Suncast Golf Organizer has several features that make it a great gift. The metal frame is sturdy, the adjustable foot rests allows the storage unit to rest on uneven surfaces, the open top allows for storing bags with varying heights, and the lip-bar at the bottom ensures that the bags will not slide off of the rack floor. As pictured, it can store two golf bags side by side, or one golf bag and a caddy cart. The side shelves are perfect for shoes, golf balls, extra tees, golf towels, or whatever else you typically bring along on an outing. The stand is appropriate for any male or female golf enthusiast, especially those into home organization.

2. Caddyswag Par 6 Golf Bag Cooler
A few drinks on the course are the best way to improve your golf game. If your game doesn’t improve, you’ll be less likely to remember how awful you are with a few alcoholic beverages in your system. Sneak a few beers onto the course without raising any eyebrows with this soft sided stealth cooler bag. It keeps beer or soda cans ice cold for a hot day of golf. The cooler easily fits inside of your golf bag so you won’t be suspicions. It’s fully lined and easily sealable and comes with a reusable gel pack. It fits up to six 12-ounce cans.
3. Callaway Executive Gift Set
While you can absolutely give this gift alone, we recommend grabbing a few other inexpensive golf items on this list and making your own golf gift basket. This set includes a premium stainless steel travel mug with the printed Callaway logo, a pouch for your valuables with a zipper closure, a pro-line putt align tool, a marking pen, four Callaway neon ball markers, two Callaway Warbird golf balls, and five Callaway performance tees. If you’re looking for additional items to include in a golf gift basket, consider a golf book, a golf towel, a golf glove, or some additional golf balls.
4. Emoji Professional Practice Golf Balls
These emoji golf balls will add some humor to any golf game. They play just as well as most professional balls, so they won’t affect your game. The designs match the popular emoji faces perfectly and the set comes with two of each design (tears of joy, heart eyes, kissy face, tongue out, money eyes, and sunglasses). The best part of this funny golf ball set is the bright color of the balls, which helps set your ball apart on the course and makes it easier to find when it’s not hit in plain sight on the fairway (any golfer knows that losing your ball in the rough is the worst). If you like the idea of gifting novelty golf balls, check out some other great options.
5. TecTecTec Golf Rangefinder
Range finders are a key aspect to anyone’s golf game and can help to drastically improve their skillset. While the price tag might look hefty at first glance, it’s actually one of the more inexpensive options at this level. The advanced laser range finder rapidly provides accurately measured distances of up to 540 yards. If the golfer on your list is new to range fingers, the operation is very easy. Simply point it and press the power button and the yardage is displayed. The green can clearly be seen from 150 yards so you can better understand exactly where you’re aiming. Cosmetically speaking, the range finder comes with a fantastic case. The lightweight piece of equipment can either be clipped to a belt or slipped into a pocket with ease.
