Last week I shared golf accessory gift ideas for the golfer on your list that included golf balls, distance measuring devices, travel bags, sunglasses, grips and push carts. The gift ideas continue this week with great stocking stuffer ideas:
EWGA Membership – Give the gift of fun for the entire year! Introduce a friend to EWGA golf events and programs. In celebration of our 25th anniversary all new members you recruit can save $25 off the Classic Membership by entering the discount code 2015-EWGA25 when they join online. Plus you will be entered to win a complimentary registration for the EWGA Conference in Williamsburg, Virginia next April.
Golf Instruction – Grab a friend and register for golf instruction together. Your local PGA or LPGA Professional may offer Get Golf Ready (designed to welcome new golfers to the game) or other small group instruction. Some Professionals will let you even set up your own group of golfers – so get some friends together and have fun working on your game.
Tickets to PGA or LPGA TOUR events – Since your EWGA membership card grants you complimentary admission to domestic LPGA Tour events, you may consider purchasing tickets for friends. Tickets to golf events fit nicely in stockings! To purchase tickets to PGA TOUR events if they play in or near your hometown, visit PGA TOUR. For information on tickets to the U.S. Open or U.S. Women’s Open, visit USGA.org. If the golfer on your list would like to attend the Sr. PGA Championship, KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, 2016 PGA Championship or 2016 Ryder Cup, visit PGA.com.
Stay and Play Packages – This is the time of year many golf resorts nationwide are offering attractive stay and play packages. You may have a bucket list item of visiting Pebble Beach, Bandon Dunes, Whistling Straits, Pinehurst, the Greenbriar, Reynolds Plantation or destination golf meccas like Scottsdale, Arizona, Palm Springs, California, Orlando, Florida or Maui, Hawaii. If you live in the part of the country that has seasonal golf, planning a warm weather golf trip is always fun.
Additional items that make great stocking stuffers include golf belts, golf gloves, golf towels, rain gloves, golf tees, sunscreen, ball markers, hat clips with magnetic ball markers, divot repair tools, head covers and putter covers.
