With the holidays just around the corner, it’s time to start looking for gifts for your favorite golfer. Luckily, GolfLink is putting together its lists of the best gifts available this year. The following are the year’s best golf games.

 


Chippo Golf Set

Chippo takes a simple concept, cornhole for golfers, and executes it so flawlessly you’ll wonder how this wasn’t already a product. The game puts 2 golfers, or teams of golfers, against each other with the object being to chip in to one of the 3 holes on the Chippo board. The game is highly addictive and perfect for someone who likes to host BBQs or tailgates, and the perfect gift for college golfers with a couple roommates handy. 

 

Accelerator Pro Indoor Putting Green by SKLZ

A practice putting green is a great way to build up muscle memory and have a little fun indoors when you can’t make it out to the course or during the cold winter months. The trick is finding a putting green that provides ease of use, quality, and is still storable. The SKLZ Accelerator Pro Indoor Putting Green ticks all those boxes and more. Alignment guides at 3, 5, and 7 feet allow for consistency in your approach and the automatic ball return means you’ll spend more time putting and less time grabbing your balls.
