By Ryan Watson

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 gifts for dad. 


Vice Pro Plus Golf Balls

A golfer will always need balls, and Vice Pro Plus are an excellent tour quality golf ball at a very reasonable price. The ball has been reviewed favorably and is unique in being essentially a boutique brand that doesn’t charge absurd prices. Plus your dad will feel cool on the course when he’s the only duffer over 50 with Vice balls, letting him hold on to his fading cool factor for as long as possible. 


Remarkable Golf Courses by Iain T. Spragg

Iain T. Spragg’s coffee table book, Remarkable Golf Courses, makes an excellent gift that will provide hours of browsing fun. Spragg has combined beautiful photography with insightful commentary as he explores many of golf’s most unique courses. The world’s highest and lowest courses are explored, as well as oddities such as golf courses with their own railways and a real floating green at a course in Idaho. The book will take readers around the world to see truly one of a kind courses. 


Swinger Box Subscription Box

Buy Here

The Swinger Box is a monthly subscription plan that provides golf course essentials as well as apparel and accessories. Simply have your old man complete a Swinger’s Player Profile and decide at what level you want to subscribe, and wait for the goods to come in. He also has the option to switch his subscription to “Off-Season Mode” to stop receiving goods like golf balls and tees and instead receive casual apparel, books and other goods to get through the time spent off the course. You can also change the composition of your monthly box at any time, to include perhaps fewer polos and more golf balls. 


MacKenzie Golf Bag

MacKenzie Golf Bags combines fine craftsmanship with classic style to make beautiful and functional bags. The bags are designed for walkers and come in a variety of styles and materials. The leather bags will attract the most attention, as the hand worked leather provides a superior quality. Other bags are made from a waterproofed canvas or nylon, and would look equally at home at St. Andrews or your local muni. 


Bluegrass Fairway Handmade HeadCovers

Another fabulous handmade gift idea is a headcover from Bluegrass Fairway. This small company hails from the great state of Kentucky and offers a range of golf accessories including valuable bags, belts, duffel bags and leather scorecard holders.
