Christmas Golfing Gifts to Suit All Budgets
7th December 2020
Christmas is just around the corner, and at Scratch72 we’ve got everything you could want for the golfer in your life! It can seem overwhelming when it comes to picking out the right gift, with so many options available how can you be sure to have got the right one? We’ve picked out a few choice products to make sure your gift is the perfect addition to their next round, in addition to some top tips to make sure you’re putting a smile on their face this Christmas.
A new pair of golf shoes would make for the perfect gift this Christmas. Ensuring comfort on the course and the stability to take a shot with confidence, a good pair of golf shoes can make a round a far more pleasant experience both on and off the course. If you’re buying for someone with an older pair of golf shoes, improvements in design mean that the newer shoes are lighter in weight and more comfortable than an older pair, as well as coming in waterproof versions - no one wants to finish a round in soggy shoes!
When it comes to buying golf shoes, it’s important to remember that there are both spiked and spikeless shoes available. A spiked shoe offers more grip on the greens, especially when playing in wet weather, whereas the spikeless shoes give you more flexibility, allowing you to seamlessly transition between the course and the clubhouse. Both versions come with waterproof or wide fit models, so there are plenty of options when looking for the perfect pair to gift this Christmas.
Now that golf courses have been reopened, a good set of waterproofs are an ideal companion when treading the fairways this winter. Our range of waterproof clothing is hand picked to ensure that the material won’t interfere with your swing when out on the course, while still being made from breathable and lightweight material. We have waterproof golf jackets and waterproof golf trousers in stock, making for a great gift either as a set or individually. The waterproofs that we have at Scratch72 also come with a waterproof warranty, ranging from three years up to a lifetime guarantee.
No golfer would be seen out on the course without their golf bag, and you can ensure they have everything they need out on the course with a new golf bag this Christmas. A good golf bag will be made to keep a golfers clubs organised, as well as having plenty of storage space for balls, tees and other equipment. Many modern bags are made from waterproof material and come with a hood to keep club heads dry from the rain, with some bags including insulated pockets to keep food and drinks cool to enjoy during a round.
No two golf bags are the same, so the type of bag you’re buying matters as each comes with different compartments and features. Cart bags are specifically designed for those who take a cart around the course, with built-in straps to keep the bag secure whilst moving. Stand bags meanwhile offer more versatility, with a stand mechanism that extends from the bag to keep it upright when not being carried. These bags are typically the lightest golf bags, ideal for those who carry their clubs during a round, while also coming with straps to attach them to a cart. A Staff bag is ideal for a golfer who wants to really look the part out on the course, as these are the bags used by players on the tour. Staff bags are best for those with a caddy out on course with them, as they can be heavier than either stand or cart bags.
If you’re looking for a more affordable option this Christmas then a new polo shirt is always a welcome gift for any golfer. At Scratch72, we have a wide range of stylish golf polo shirts that are made to be out on the course. The materials in a golf polo shirt are designed for performance to ensure they aren’t restrictive during a swing to ensure natural and comfortable movement throughout a round. With polo shirts in particular, it’s important to take into consideration the brand of the polo, as having mismatched clothing out on the course can be a fashion faux pas! We stock polo shirts from leading brands including Nike, Adidas, Under Armour and many more, so you’re sure to find the ideal accompaniment to their current wardrobe.
Alternatively, a new base layer would make for a fantastic present for the keen golfer in your life this Christmas. When playing at this time of year, a good base layer will help to keep any golfer warm whilst out on the green. Base layers are worn under your clothes and help to maintain a layer of warmth without compromising your shot. We have both cotton and compression base layers in stock at Scratch72, in addition to compression leggings with a comfortable skin tight fit.
If you’re not sure what to buy, there’s always the option of a gift card to make sure they can get exactly what they want for the next time they step onto the course! A Scratch72 gift card is the perfect way to treat the golfing enthusiast in your life, and can be redeemed against any product in our online store. Our gift cards are available for £5, £10, £25 and £50, or you can add an amount of your choosing to the card.
