The holiday season is fast approaching, and it’s just about time to start shopping for your favorite golfer. With Black Friday and other holiday deals in the market, you can get them exactly what they want or need for a good price. Our Deer Creek Golf Pro Shop is home to a variety of equipment and attire for any golfer. We stock brands like FootJoy, Titleist, Nike, Adidas, TaylorMade, and more!
But what is a good gift for a golfer? Our South Florida golf club experts can help you figure out the perfect gifts for golfers!
Perfect Gifts for Golfers
If you are shopping for an avid golfer, you might have some trouble deciding what to buy. There are so many things that could be on their wish list – a GPS watch, new shoes, new clubs, a laser rangefinder – their list might seem to go on forever. Instead of shopping blind, the best way to approach buying for them is to start with equipment or clothes that could improve their game and look. Below is a look at some of the perfect gifts for golfers.
Garmin Approach S60 Golf GPS Watch
There are many GPS devices available to use when you come to play our course. However, the Garmin is one of the easiest to use on the links, load up the course, and display the golfer’s distance from a number of positions on the course. This device will allow them to avoid hazards! It includes many other precision tricks, too.
Nikon Coolshot Pro II Stabilized Rangefinder
Some golf carts are GPS loaded for the course they are on. If that is not the case or it doesn’t seem accurate, then a great golfer gift is a rangefinder. This will help golfers take matters into their own hands and be able to see the slopes. Reading the slopes provides a more accurate reading. This specific model also self-stabilizes to offer more precision.
SKLZ Golf Swing Trainer Warm-Up Stick
Whether they are a pro or just getting started, this gift can help any golfer improve their golf swing. From their swing game to their tempo and even to their strength, this is a gift that can help it all. Giving the gift of practice on top of booking them a round of golf with us will make any golfer happy this holiday season.
Name-Brand Golf Gear
At our Pro Shop, we offer many different golf brands. If your favorite golfer is in need of new golf attire, we are the place to go! There are various shirts, shorts, and other clothing that are specifically designed with golf movements and environments in mind. Proper golf attire is important in the golf world and helps each golfer’s game.

It’s a one-on-one showdown between two golf legends, and nothing is better than Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson on Thanksgiving weekend.
In one corner you have Tiger Woods, arguably the most famous golfer in history, and definitely one of the best to play the sport in the past 100 years – a legend in his own right that made (and broke) the Nike golf line singlehandedly .
In the other corner, you have Phil Mickelson who’s also a golf legend and widely considered the sixth best golfer of all time, placing him in the ranks of Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and Bobby Jones . Tiger is second on that list by the way.
And here they are, Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson, set for either Friday, November 23, or Saturday, November 24, Thanksgiving weekend 2018, at the Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas.
The payout for this game is a reported $10 million, which is no small purse, even for these too mega millionaire golfers.
Their relationship has been turbulent in past, too. During the 2004 Ryder Cup in Oakland hills, there was some interpersonal Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson steam brewing. They weren’t on speaking terms at the time, and they had no idea they were playing together on Team USA both are part of the 2018 Ryder Cup teams as alternates – here’s to hoping they play and are matched up. Now, that would be good T.V.
These days the two enjoy more of a friendly rivalry and camaraderie. Be sure to enjoy being your family to one of the best places to eat on Thanksgiving (us of course) and then enjoy a the match on Friday.
We invited both Woods and Mickelson to a rematch at the best golf course in South Florida, but that invitation is pending.

New year’s resolutions all suffer from the same problems. Most new year’s resolutions are just far too ambitious or not fun. Yes, you should enjoy your resolutions, even just a little bit. New year’s resolutions for golfers usually include: lowering your handicap by 10 points, practicing every weekend, or traveling to Augusta to watch The Masters.
For most golfers, those resolutions require far too much investment. Instead we discuss 5 simple, attainable, and fun golf new year’s resolutions. We can all try to at least get three of these ticked off the list.
These are by far the best we could find, and all agree upon. Every golfer can accomplish one of these new year’s resolutions this year.
1 – Introduce a Friend to Golf
Most of us know someone who we know would love to play golf if they just only gave it a try. You’re never too old to learn golf. Plus, learning with a friend is a great way to avoid picking up bad habits.
Make it your resolution to introduce one of your favorite past times to someone who you think may really like it.
2 – Play More This Year
We all want to play more golf. Every time we finally make it out onto the course, we usually remember why we love it so much. Sometimes, by the end of the day we vow to never ruin a good walk that again. But usually, we are right back at it.
If you have access to a golf course in South Florida, well you don’t have too many excuses for not playing golf. The weather’s great, the prices are right and the best golf courses in South Florida are some of the best in the world.
Another one of the easily attainable new year’s resolutions for golfers should be to play more!
3 – Get A Golf Membership
This is a chicken or egg argument. Will buying a golf membership guarantee I play more, or do I have to play more to justify a golf membership?
The answer is simple: both. You can ensure you get the most out of your membership by following these rules:
- Set a Schedule: You will always golf the third Sunday of the Month.
- Track Your Progress: Keep your score cards and track your handicap improvements.
- Take Full Advantage: Use your golf membership for practice and for nights at the club house.
If you have never had a golf club membership, then we highly recommend signing up; it’s quite an experience.
4 – Plan A Golf Trip
Get your golf buddies together and plan a golf trip this year. It doesn’t take much. Pick a location that you would all love to visit, and plan to play at one or maybe two games of golf on that area’s most luxurious golf courses.
Spend the money to play on a great course!
5 – Enter a Local Golf Tournament
Of all the new year’s resolutions for golfers on this post, this will likely be the most difficult one to follow through on. But you can do it. Florida golf season begins again in Fall 2018. Take this time to practice and enter yourself in a tournament by the end of the year.

- Subscription to Swinger Box
Swinger Box is a monthly subscription that sends a mystery package to the subscriber filled with all kinds of neat gifts for golfers. It’s the gift that keeps giving all year long! Each month, the subscription cost per box will be charged to your card, and each subscription lasts one year, but you can cancel at any time.
All golfers need golf balls, so this gift is guaranteed to make an impression. Titleist are considered the best of the best and you can even put custom designs on the balls.
Sure, there are lots of other golf ball brands out there and you don’t have to choose the Titleist brand, however, these balls have a reputation for excellence and they will impress the golfer in your life.
Golfers need new grips for their clubs more than they care to admit. The truth is that buying new golf grips is a time consuming, hassle. Ask any golfer and they will relate regripping golf clubs with a tire rotation. Not fun, but necessary.
You can visit your local golf pro shop and ask for prices to re-grip. Bring a picture of the clubs and the grips to help the golf pro decide what kind of grips you need.
