BEST GOLF GIFTS 2020:
The Best Golf Balls– Titleist AVX Golf Balls
Titleist Golf Balls make the ideal stocking stuffer of Valentine’s Day gift for golfers. Every golfer needs golf balls, and reviews on best golf ball performance keep pointing to three Titleist choices- Pro V1, Pro V1x, and the AVX.
After reading reviews and considering the price point was under $40 for a full box, the Titleist AVX Golf Balls are our recommendation for best golf balls to gift your favorite golfer.
The Best Golf Glove– TaylorMade Men’s Tour Preferred Flex Golf Glove
We went with GolfInfluence.com’s top choice on this one. They did a thorough assessment of the golf gloves on the market and posted their 9 Best Golf Gloves For Grip and Comfort. The TaylorMade Tour Preferred Flex Golf Glove was their “top pick for most golfers,” and can be purchased for under $20. It’s a nice addition to any golfer’s equipment and it’s very affordable. Please keep in mind golf gloves are worn on the opposite of a golfer’s dominant hand.
Unique Golf Gift Idea– JBL Clip 3
Question: Is the golf lover in your life also a music lover?
If the answer is yes, you should rock their world with a JBL Clip 3. Technically not a golf product, the JBL Clip 3 could quite possibly be one of the best golf gifts you buy. Golfers simply clip this waterproof portable bluetooth speaker to their golf bag and enjoy their favorite music on the course.
You can currently purchase this on Amazon for under $40. Amazon reviewers give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. Plus, it’s not just limited to golf. You could clip this speaker to anything!
The Best Golf Watch– Garmin Approach S62
For this one we went with the MyGolfSpy.com review for best golf GPS for 2020. They state they are independent, unbiased and will always put the golfer first. For their best golf GPS review they claim they invested 21 hours of research time and considered 19 products. That leads us to believe their review really gives you the best choice.
At $500 the Garmin Approach S62 is fairly priced, as GPS watch prices range from thousands of dollars to just under $200.
The Best Golf Bag– This one was tough! First you have to answer this: Does your golfer prefer to walk the course, or ride in a cart?
Second, look through T3 and Dick’s Sporting Goods recommendations for the best stand golf bags and the best cart golf bag options to decide what’s best for your golfer.
The Best Golf Gadget– ARCCOS CADDIE SMART SENSORS
The Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors came up high on several golf gift reviews as the “very best golf gift.”
Sean Ogle, of BreakingEighty.com, touts himself as one of the very first users of Arccos. Ogle wrote, “I think Arccos is the single greatest piece of golf tech a golfer can own.”
For five-straight years Golf Digest Editor’s Choice Awards for “Best Game Analyzer” has gone to Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors.
Costing about $180, the Arccos system comes with 14 battery-powered sensors, which individually screw into the top of golf grips. You get one sensor (13 regular Arccos Caddie sensors + 1 Arccos Caddie Putter sensor) for every club in your bag. Golfers synchronize and pair their sensors to the free Arccos Caddie app, which has great A.I. features and tracks all kinds of stats.
This a a great gift option for the golfer who loves gadgets and wants to see golf game improvements. During the first year of use, Arccos Caddie users experience an average handicap improvement of 4.2 strokes. Who wouldn’t be happy about that?
The Best Golf Day– Hartford Greens Country Club Gift Certificate or Membership
(Shameless plug!) Get the golfer on your list a gift certificate to golf at Hartford Greens Country Club. Our gift certificates are available for any dollar amount you wish and never expire. Even better, get him/her a Hartford Greens Country Club membership. Either choice gives them time on the course, which is what your favorite golfer is really wishing for!
