How to Find the Best Holiday Gifts for Golfers
What should you buy the golfer in your life this holiday season? If you know next to nothing about golf, but you want to impress that special golf fanatic in your life, whether it be your significant other or your boss, Deer Creek Golf Club’s Pro Golf Store can teach you how to find the best holiday gifts for golfers.
Step 1 – Reconnaissance
Put your spy cap on and be ready to snap a couple pictures. Scout out where the golfer keeps his or her golf equipment: bag, clubs, shoes and shirts, etc. Snap pics of everything you can and make a catalogue of everything you have found because you can use all of this information to take to your pro golf store so they can help you find the best gifts for golfers based on what the golfer already has and is missing.
Step 2 – Advice
Head over to your local golf pro shop, show them your photos, and ask for recommendations. Give more details about the golfer, age, height, golfing ability (if you know), and they can help you choose the perfect gift.
Step 3 – Shop Around
Don’t just settle for what an associate in the golf pro store recommends and has on the shelves as specials. Make a list of all the holiday gifts for golfers that you have been recommended and then ask a friend; bonus points if you can speak to a golfing buddy. Golfing equipment can be very expensive, so before you spend a fortune, make sure that you are getting your special golfer exactly what they need and want.
Step 4 – Reap the Rewards
After following all of the above, congratulations, you have bought a gift that your golfer will remember forever!

Golf Pro Shop Must Haves
There is nothing like walking into a well-kept and fully stocked golf pro shop first thing in the morning, right before tee time. Simply nothing like it. If you happen to find yourself in the golf pro shop in Deerfield Beach, that is the one at the Deer Creek Golf Club, we are here to tell you what golf pro shop must haves you need to pick up.

On the Back Nine
Stop back in for a cool drink and maybe a quick bite to eat at the snack bar before you head out onto the course again.
After the Round
