For most golfers, it is more than just a game, it is a way of life. Sure, that sounds a bit cliche, but it is undeniably true. Once someone catches the golf bug it is hard to ever turn back. A quick round on Saturday afternoon turns into a couple of rounds a week and nights spent under the lights on the range and practicing their putting stroke on the hallway carpet with that week's PGA tournament on in the background from Thursday through Sunday. Once he buys his first golf shoes, it turns into socks, pants and just about anything else that'll have him looking stylish on the course. Not everyone turns into Tiger, but there are less healthy things to become obsessed with — not many hobbies have a four-mile walk built-in.
When it comes to golf gifts for men, the best ones help him step up their game, whether that means buying a new wedge to improve his time spent in the bunker or getting a framed print of Jack Nicklaus to serve as a bit of inspo. Either way, the golfer in your life will appreciate anything that reminds them of the game they love.
Ideal for their office desk, mantle or bookshelf, this brass golf club sculpture is a piece of decor that any golf enthusiast would appreciate.
Don't let him wear boring golf gloves. Get this three-pack that calls back to the old days of golf, when gloves were more than just a cheap piece of white leather.
If he's a bit of a range rat, get them some spikeless golf shoes that are comfy enough to wear from the office to the club — the country club, that is.
The Golfer's Journal membership is much more than a magazine subscription, though it is that, as well. They'll get a quarterly coffee-table-worthy magazine, access to exclusive content and some cash to throw around on Linksoul.com.
Let's be honest, golf balls are expensive — especially the good ones. If they're too cheap to buy the best all year long, get them a pack of Pro V1s, arguably the greatest golf ball you can buy.
A legend of the game, Jack Nicklaus is the inspo they need. Get them this print and they can cast their gaze on the Golden Bear anytime they're in their office, den or man cave.
Everyone loves a putting mat, but this one takes it to another level thanks to the classy wood finish. It also comes with a standard golf hole and a smaller one for more accurate practice.
Unexpected showers are just a fact of life on the golf course. Get them this huge golf umbrella from Weatherman and they'll be able to keep dry when inclement weather strikes.
For a little chipping practice, get them this easy-to-use collapsible chipping net, which will help their game immensely (everyone ignores their short game).
These balls were fished out of the water around the floating green of the infamous 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass in Florida and turned into a handy tool they'll use all the time. They may not be able to play there, but at least they can have a piece of the history.
Help him unlock the golf course just by looking at his wrist with this GPS watch from Garmin, which can store course data to give real-time distances and hole profiles.
A golf simulator brings the course home. Whether they like to hit balls in the garage all winter or just hit a few shots on weeknights, this gift allows them to make the most of their spare time at home.
One of the harder things about golf is determining shot distances with the naked eye. A rangefinder hones in on the pin (or tree, or pole, or anything they want to aim at) to ensure they hit the right club every time.
This refillable golf logbook is a great way for them to keep track of their progress on the links — they can keep logs of 46 rounds on the pages that come with the book and an infinite number of rounds with refills.
Lots of golfers think they know the story of Tiger Woods, but do they know the full story? This book is a must-read for any Tiger fan — or any PGA fan, for that matter.
They can strap this dry bag onto the side of their bag if they're walking or easily store it in the basket of a golf cart — no essentials will ever be lost in a golf bag pocket again.
Whether they're walking by themselves or hitting the course with some buddies and some beers, tunes (or a podcast) are a great way to pass some time and make the round a bit more fun.
The best way to get them a pro-worthy golf club without breaking the bank is to buy them a nice wedge. This one from Titleist is PGA-pro-approved and will have them spinnin' their approach shots in no time.
If they're always hitting their drives into the drink, or just like to rescue balls rather than buy them, a golf ball retriever is the perfect extra piece of gear to keep in their bag.
Summertime golf can get hot. The Mission Cooling Bucket Hat cools by up to 30 degrees in just 30 seconds when activated with water and keeps their face, eyes and neck protected from harsh UV rays.
If they love golf course style but don't know where to start, get them a gift card to Short Par 4, the golf-focused subscription box that will outfit them with apparel picks from some of the top brands in golf.
