Golf Gift Ideas for Holiday Shopping 2020
It’s hard to believe, but the holiday season is here. If you aren’t able to travel to the homes of your loved ones, our holiday shopping guide is filled with golf gift ideas that can deliver seasonal spirit and a personal touch to everyone on your gift list. So in lieu of travel expenses, take this opportunity to send a personalized golf gift to the friends and family who have helped you through this vastly subpar year.
Broken down into categories for ease of navigation, this holiday golf gift guide will give you the inspiration you need to go low this season, or get you out of trouble if you need a last minute idea. It will also come in especially useful if you’re buying for a golfer on your list, but you don’t know much about the game itself.
Golf Gift Ideas for Avid Golfers
People who love to golf tend to be fond of all aspects of the game, from the joy of a great shot to the experience of a round at a course played for the first time. For these avid golfers, consider a gift to showcase their great golf memories. A high quality collectible display case can feature anything you can imagine, from golf ball displays to golf pencil displays. The handsome hardwood construction is fine enough for any room and will proudly display a lifetime of golf mementos.
For a golfer who might have celebrated that rare and incredible feat of a hole-in-one, consider helping them feature it in style. Great Golf Memories has the widest selection of Hole-in-One Awards, from accessories to certificates and desk or shelf awards. Browse everything from great stocking stuffers to the finest custom displays and shower attention on such a celebration-worthy golf shot.
Not looking to spend too much on a golf gift, but still want to make an impression? Consider a personalized ball marker, divot tool set or hat clip. These are perfect for players of all skill levels and appreciated for their quality, and can be customized with names, initials, family crests or even a custom logo! From $25.99 and up, and don’t forget the personalized golf balls either; these are a “can’t miss” gift.
Golf Gift Ideas for Grandparents
If you’re still blessed with grandparents in your life, they’ll be sure to love one of these golf gifts from you. Grandparents are always a tough group to shop for since they have basically everything they need, so sentimentality and personalization take the honors here.
Christmas ornaments are a go to gift in my family, as we seem to endlessly collect them in giant plastic tubs lined with an increasing crumple of tissue paper. Decorating the Christmas tree marked the unofficial start of the season, and doing so alongside my mother and grandmother is one of those memories that I will always cherish. With a large selection of golf christmas gifts and personalized glass Christmas ornaments, you can be sure that your grandparents will be thinking of you when they add this memento to their tree for years to come.
If grandma and grandpa are still out there walking the links, these personalized golf club finders are a great gift to make sure they make it home with all of their clubs in hand. Not only will the customizable inserts make each club feel more personalized, but the inclusion of a phone number or email address will help anyone who finds a stray stick know exactly who to get in contact with. Lightweight and easily inserted into the grip of most clubs, Club Finder™ won’t impact their swing, fall out, or wear down.
This is an awesome gift for any old school golfer who isn’t too sensitive about their age. While it’s unlikely your grandparents ever completed a round with a Niblick or Mashie, they can definitely appreciate the importance and beauty of these handmade pieces of golf history to remember the legacy of this great game. And with the ability to engrave a personal message on the club face, these classic sticks are a lovely way to celebrate a lifetime of loving the game of golf.
While this gift would be perfect for anyone on your list, we’re putting it in the grandparent category because we think they’re the most likely people in your family to have a putting green somewhere in their house, backyard, or garage. And where there’s a practice putting green, there needs to be a place to conveniently and safely store the putter. That’s where this handmade, hardwood putter stand will turn any putting mat set up into a professional-looking practice space.

Best Golf Christmas Gifts for Parents
We already went pretty in depth on both golf gifts for mom and Father’s Day back in the spring, so this will have some old ideas that have been refreshed, and even some new ones that will still knock them out of their holiday jammies.
Great for anyone who enjoys a mid-round cigar almost as much as the round itself, this custom cigar case and cutter will be the perfect addition to their bag. Plus, you can never go wrong with something monogrammed when buying for a parent. It shows advanced thinking and planning, and whenever they use it they’ll be reminded of your thoughtfulness. And as a bonus, it has room for two cigars, so who knows, they might remember to bring one for you next time you play a round together.
If personalized golf gifts are your fancy, we’ll keep it rolling with this golf ball shaped wine stopper. Small and compact enough to send in a care package or put into a carry on bag, this is a potent little gift that is sure to be as useful as it is a touching reminder of a child’s love (write something like that in the card; cards are key). There is a lot of crossover between golf and wine (perhaps the rolling hills of a golf course remind players of lush vineyards, or maybe the sport’s connection to northern California is the culprit), so if your mom or dad is one of those grape loving golfers, this is a perfect stocking stuffer to keep their best juice fresh.
Scenario #1: one of your parents has a dirty old club they’ve been using for years. Perhaps a specialty club, or an old wood, it’s one of those quirky little comfort clubs they think they hit a lot more consistently than they actually do. Whether it’s the feel or nostalgia, sometimes it can be tough to get rid of an old workhorse. This personalized display is the perfect way to help them retire that old workhorse in style. They’ll be able to take it out of the bag without getting rid of it, creating a family heirloom that will last lifetimes.
Scenario #2: a lot of third generation golf families will have an old bag kicking around somewhere in the garage, shed, or attic. They’ve changed hands a few times, but throwing them away or donating them to a second-hand sports shop seems a cruel way of erasing the family’s history. If this describes your situation, consider this four golf club shadow box display, which can be personalized with important details to help remember their original owner forever.
Another great gift for golfing parents is to purchase a pin flag from one of their favorite courses, especially if they took a great golf vacation in 2020. Simply call that course and ask them if they have pin flags for sale, then put it in one of our customizable pin flag displays. This is a great gift for any collector on your list that can be used again and again, especially if they’ve been working through a golf course bucket list. When they unwrap a memory like that, as gifted by you, they’ll probably forget all of the other gifts your siblings got them.
Holiday Golf Gifts for Grads
Whether highschool or college, the young golfer in your life has decades of play ahead of them. Sweetspots to be found and lost, new courses to play, and frustrations aplenty. They’ve just begun to develop a taste for the sublime agony of the game, and they’ll continue to chase it for years. Help foster this love for the game they cannot win with one of these gift ideas.
For of-age graduates, these are an absolute no-brainer. These golf-themed barware glasses are perfect for grads who are making the transition from red solo cups to something more sophisticated. Help them fill those bare cabinets with rocks glasses and pint glasses they can use to impress their friends, and with a price point that’s perfect for extended family gifting.
Young graduates have a lot of golfing ahead of them. The places they’ll go for a tee time will eventually add up to a lifetime of memories, so if the grad on your list is a sentimentalist then one of these handmade collectible golf displays will make a perfect gift, and help keep all those momentos from crowding up the junk drawer. There’s something for every collector, from golf ball displays to golf pencil displays, and the handsome hardwood construction will be one of the nicer things they have hanging on their walls. More than a gift that will get some use and be retired, a collection display case will be something they can spend a lifetime nurturing.
Gifts for Casual Golfers & Fans
Not everyone who loves golf is, themselves, a devoted golfer. My grandfather never picked up a club in his life, and yet every Sunday, PGA tour coverage would be playing in the background while he drifted between reading the paper and napping. For this group, club or ball displays might just gather dust. But never fear, we have the watchers covered with these great golf gift ideas!
The Masters Tournament is one of the most hallowed weekends in golf. Millions of people around the world look to this favorite harbinger of Spring with great anticipation to see the best golfers on the planet play rounds on what must be a facsimile of the Garden of Eden. If somebody on your list has Georgia on their mind, consider giving them some authentic Masters merchandise. Whether it’s a Masters hat, performance polo shirt, garden gnome or the official Masters tournament journal, there’s something for everyone in this collection.
This item in particular deserves it’s own paragraph. If you have a special giftee on your list who loves the Masters as much as I do, then consider an item from this Augusta Fine Arts collection. These reproductions will turn any home or office into a sanctuary of golfing greatness, with views captured from White Dogwood, Azalea, and the legendary Amen Corner. Available in three finishes (wrapped canvas, framed canvas, or framed print), the recipient will appreciate having a view from The Masters all year round.
Everyone knows that watching golf pairs really well with a tasty libation. Whether it’s hot or cold, help the golf fan on your holiday list keep it just to their liking for the entire back nine on Sunday. These are a great personalized golf gift that is eminently useful and appreciated. It’s also the perfect price point for a secret santa gift exchange, or a distant relative that you want to remember without breaking the bank. Available in a wide range of colors and compositions, these personalized stainless steel 20oz tumblers are worth a look.

Great Christmas Gifts for Your Favorite Golfing Buddy
2020 has been a really weird, stressful year that has underlined the importance of friendships. This can be especially true for the foursome whose company, competition, and support has helped to keep you sane during the last few months. Show that appreciation with a set of customized divot tools with the option to engrave their initials, first name, or even an affectionate nickname. When it comes time to tee it up again next Spring, they’ll feel so touched at your gesture they may even buy you a hot dog at the turn.
Custom golf balls are a great way to commemorate the foursome that keeps you going (i.e. happily take your money) from spring till fall. Whether you want to print a team name, the golfer’s nick/name, or a taunt they’ll never live down, this is a fun way to exercise your creativity. There’s a wide range of balls to choose from, and if you really want to go for it you can print a team logo or funny image on the golf balls for that added touch. If your foursome didn’t spend the year on the naughty list, you can even splash out and buy them their own custom box of Pro V1’s.
If your golf buddies are anything like mine, they enjoy a nip or two out on the course. Not just for bachelor parties, these customizable flasks are a great way for you to show appreciation to your group of friends, while really upping the classiness of their on-the-course drinking. Available in a range of colors and finishes, these stainless flasks will not only last a lifetime, but will be the source of a lifetime’s worth of stories.
Depending on how sentimental your foursome is, buying a personalized golf scorecard album can be a great way to remember the rounds you spend together. Engrave your team name on the plaque, add your least flattering group shot to the cover, and promise it to the winner of the next round you all play together. Devise a system of passing it around, adding trinkets and scorecards along the way. This is a gift that also works very well for parents, grandparents or anyone on your holiday list that has a lot of rounds under their belt, some even good enough to remember!
Whether it’s a golfing grad or your favorite parent, a golf-themed holiday gift shows that you know what they like and you celebrate their love for the game. With the high quality and affordable items in this golf gifting guide, you can surely find something for anyone on your list. Remember, you can never go wrong gifting great golf memories.
