Cutter & Buck Men’s Weathertec Mason Full Zip Jacket

A warm, flexible and lightweight jacket is hard to come by, which makes Cutter & Buck’s CB Weathertec Mason Full Zip Jacket all the more valuable.

The FootJoy Pro/SL men’s golf shoe is a premier spikeless golf shoe available in Men’s and Women’s sizes. Made from waterproof ChromoSkin leather, the shoe looks great while providing excellent grip and comfort. The FootJoy Pro/SL also has a perimeter weighted outsole for extra stability on wet grass in this sleek spikeless model.

Ecco Mens Golf Lux

For a spiked shoe with classic stylings, the Ecco Golf Lux is an excellent gift idea that can be used for years. Ecco crafts each shoe from leather processed in their own tanneries to create this beautiful wingtip shoe. The innovative professional-standard spikes make sure you have superior grip on the course.

Mackenzie Golf Bags Sunday Walker

To add some style to the course, a vintage-tinged Mackenzie Sunday Walker will upgrade any golfers’ look. These are simple, sleek bags come in a variety of materials including leather, canvas, buckskin and nylon with numerous color schemes. These bags are sure to catch the eye of golfers and are perfect for golfers who prefer to walk the course.

Galvin Green E-llusion Jacket

The Galvin Green E-llusion Jacket is the perfect coat to keep on hand any time rain threatens your round of golf. Made from waterproof GORE-TEX fabric, this jacket will keep you comfortable and dry no matter what mother nature throws at you.

Ray-Ban RB4255

Playing into the sun is an uncomfortable and unnecessary golfing experience. Ray-Ban is the company for high quality sunglasses, and their RB4255 is no exception. Using “Chromance” lenses, these sunglasses filter out harmful and uncomfortable UV rays while allowing for greater contrast than ordinary sunglasses. This means you have a clearer picture of the course while planning your next shot.

Callaway Golf OptiColor Leather Golf Glove

The Callaway Golf OptiColor golf glove is made of premium leather. It has perforation to keep hands from getting sweaty and the thin leather provides excellent grip and feel. It also comes in a variety of colors and can be bought for either hand.

Puma Driver Hat

The flat cap or “driver hat” has been a standard on the golf course since the turn of the 20th century. Ben Hogan sported one on his way to becoming a legend of the game and the eccentric Bryson DeChambeau continues the tradition as he adds to his PGA Tour wins. DeChambeau’s sponsor Puma offers a stylish Driver Hat in white, red, brown and black.

William Murray Gadget Belt

Bill Murray’s line of golf apparel often pairs classic style with a bit of modern fun. The Gadget Belt is a perfect example of this with its classic canvas with a clean metal buckle that hides a few surprises. Inside the buckle are a removable ball marker and divot tool. As an added bonus, the divot tool is also a bottle opener. William Murray Golf says it best: the belt represents “irreverence with a hint of class”. Also available in leather.
