The holidays are a time to gather, eat, and be merry with friends and family. And even if it’s 20 degrees outside, the golfer in your circle is getting ready for warmer days. In fact, they’re probably already going to the heated booths at the driving range or to the golfing simulator on Saturday morning with their buddies. The best gifts show that you understand the needs (and dreams) of the golfer in your life…but what happens when you don’t know the first thing about golf? How are you supposed to get the right gift for that very particular golfer?

That’s what I’m here for! I’ve compiled this guide to the top 10 golf gifts that you can give this year. In it, you should find something that puts a genuine smile on the face of the golfer in your life. If you read this guide and have questions about the equipment, that’s okay! You can chat with a Curated Golf Expert to give you more clarity and receive personalized recommendations.

1. Robin Golf Men’s Set

If you’re looking to buy a set of clubs for a casual or beginner golfer, then consider the Robin Complete Set for Men. This affordable, complete set has all the clubs your guy needs to go enjoy a great round of golf with his buddies. And even if the man you’re shopping for is a taller player, say over 6’2”, Robin Golf makes a set with extra length so that he can play clubs that fit him just right.

These clubs are the highest quality beginner clubs available and include a well-designed driver and performance-inspired irons. My favorite part is the attractive matte black finish on the clubs, which inspires confidence and power. Get this set for the golfer in your life so he can roll to the course looking like a pro. And, with enough practice, he may even start playing like a pro with these Robin clubs.

2. Callaway Mavrik Iron Set

If a loved one is starting to get serious about golf but they’re playing clubs that they got at a garage sale, then they will definitely appreciate a new set of irons. Callaway Mavrik irons are the perfect set of clubs for the golfer that’s still learning the game.

The Mavrik irons are game improvement clubs and are designed to help make golf easier. Callaway made these clubs with Flash Face technology, which helps improve ball speed and generate more distance. Plus, the clubs are weighted with a lower center of gravity, which makes it easier to launch the ball higher. These clubs would be a great gift for your loved one, as long as you don’t mind hearing them brag about how much further their shots go than anyone else they play with.

3. Odyssey White Hot OG Double Wide Putter

When I was about 10 years old, I received an Odyssey White Hot Putter for Christmas…and I used that putter for the next 15 years! The point is that lots of golf equipment needs to be replaced after a few years of heavy use, but the right putter—like the Odyssey White Hot OG—can last for over a decade.

The Odyssey White Hot OG Double Wide Putter is a modern take on the traditional blade design. The extra width in the back of the putter offers even more forgiveness so that every putt has a consistent feel. And, the White Hot face on the putter is what put Odyssey on the map more than 20 years ago—it’s a time-tested winning design.

Everyone knows the expression, “Drive for show, putt for dough”, and while you can’t hit those winning putts for your loved one, you can certainly set them up with a putter that can!

4. Srixon Z-Star Golf Balls

Now what about something for the golfer in your life who is good at golf? Like, really good. You have no idea what they need in terms of clubs or equipment, and this person tends to be picky about what they play. But even the pickiest players will love being gifted a dozen Srixon Z-Star golf balls. These balls are of the same quality as a Titleist ProV1, which is one of the best balls on the market. While the ProV1s cost $50/dozen, the Srixon Z-Star balls only cost $43/dozen. With this gift, the golfer in your life will get to try a new ball and, when they inevitably love it, they’ll be saving money on their future golf ball purchases. It’s a great gift and one that will keep on giving.

5. Sun Mountain 2.5+ Stand Bag

If you know that the golfer in your life loves walking the course, then a high-quality bag is one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give them. Golfers want a bag that’s light and easy to carry, but they also want the bag to be durable. And, while some golfers prefer an inconspicuous bag, others like one that’s bright and colorful. Well, Sun Mountain stand bags check all of these boxes. At only 2.9 pounds, the 2.5+ Stand Bag from Sun Mountain is incredibly light and has adjustable straps that fit both men and women for an easy carrying experience. I spent 10 years as a caddie and I’ve carried every type of bag out there, so take it from me—nothing is better than a Sun Mountain bag.

6. Cobra LTDx MAX Driver

Gift shopping for men can be challenging because they often say they don’t need anything except maybe some new socks, that’s it. I’m here to share their secret; men want to hit bombs down the fairway. They’re just afraid to tell you that they want a new driver because they’re not sure that you’ll get the right one. But the Cobra LTDx MAX driver is exactly the right driver.

This driver has an adjustable hosel, which means that the golfer can easily make changes to the loft and draw setting based on their specific needs. If the golfer drives the ball too low, then they can change the loft setting to help hit a higher drive. Or if they slice their driver, they can use the draw setting to counter their slice and help them drive the ball straighter. If you don’t know much about golf, but you’ve heard the golfer in your life complaining about their slice and wanting to outdrive their buddies, then look no further—this is the perfect club for them.

7. Cobra Women’s FLY-XL Complete Set with Cart Bag

Over the last two years, a lot more women have picked up golf as a hobby. It’s a great sport for anyone who enjoys spending time outside, and it’s just as fun for those who are serious competitors as it is for those who just enjoy the social element.

No matter how seriously the game is taken, we all know it’s more fun to play well and hit good shots. And that’s much harder to do with mediocre clubs. That’s why the Cobra Women’s FLY-XL Complete Set with Cart Bag is a great choice for the lady golfer in your life. This is a complete set that’s designed to help launch the ball higher. Plus, the extra large face on the clubs make it even easier to make solid contact with the ball. There’s even a petite option for women under 5’3”. This complete Cobra set will help make the time on the green even more enjoyable for the woman in your life.

8. Callaway X Junior-1 Package Set

When I was first introduced to golf around age five, I started out with my grandma’s old clubs. They had steel shafts and had been cut down to fit my size. Even though the clubs were the right length for me, they were too heavy for my small body.

These days, well-known brands like Callaway make excellent kids clubs that are the right length and the right weight, which is important for developing a technically sound swing. The Callaway X Junior-1 Package Set is designed for kids who are between 38 to 46 inches tall. The set comes with four clubs, which is all a young golfer needs to get started on their golf journey. Tee them up from 150 yards out and they will have everything they need to drive, chip, and putt!

9. Ogio 2022 Fuse 4 Stand Bag

The Ogio 2022 Fuse 4 Stand Bag is a high-quality, reliable golf bag with some options for flair that suit men or women who like to stand out. If the golfer in your life enjoys being a little different than the rest, then they will definitely appreciate an Ogio bag. Plus, the bag has tons of pockets. With a spot for a towel, an umbrella, and even a Velcro glove patch, this is an incredibly well-thought-out design for all of a golfer’s needs.

10. Decathlon Inesis Three-Wheel Compact Golf Buggy

Golfing with a caddie is an amazing experience. The golfer gets to walk the course while someone else lugs around the heavy bag. But, caddies are expensive and they are usually only found on private courses.

An excellent solution can be found in the Decathlon Inesis 3-wheel Compact Golf Buggy. It is the perfect gift for the golfer in your life, especially if they like to walk the course. Pushing the bag around the course, instead of carrying it, makes for a more relaxing and pleasant round of golf. It’ll also protect those nice polos from looking worn and dirty because of carrying a golf bag around.

Get this push cart and the golfer in your life will enjoy their round more, their back will almost certainly feel better, and their clothes will last longer. It’s an all-around win!
