Golf is often viewed as a men’s sport, but that is far from the case. Golf being a sport reserved only for older, rich men is a popular myth about golf. The truth is that golf is also a popular sport for women of all ages. Research by the National Golf Foundation (NGF) reported that 24 percent of golfers who play on a course are women and 41 percent of off-course golfers are women.1 At our South Florida country club and golf course, many of our players are women – daughters, mothers, and even grandmothers. In that way, golf is a truly inclusive sport.
If your mom is a golfer, you should support her hobby this Mother’s Day by giving her some golf-themed gifts. If she’s just beginning, consider getting her one or more golf clubs for intermediate golfers. If she’s more advanced, look at the list below. You can find these golf gifts for mom at our award-winning golf pro shop or online. Our team has compiled a list of some of the best Mother’s Day gift ideas for golfers.
Personalized Golf Accessories
These customized gifts are truly one-of-a-kind Mother’s Day gift ideas for golfers. Equip your mom with unique golf accessories that no one else will have on the course, that are truly just for her.
Personalized Golf Towel
Golf towels are a very useful tool on the course, keeping balls and clubs dry. They are also great at absorbing sweat from hands and faces on a hot day. As useful as they are, they are often overlooked. Make a special golf towel for your mom by personalizing it with embroidered initials or even a printed family photo. Amazon, Etsy, and Walgreens are great places to find custom golf towels.
Photo Golf Ball Set
Another thing that can benefit from a personal touch are golf balls. Instead of plain old white golf balls, golfers can be reminded on their loved ones with a custom photo golf ball set. Get a set of a dozen personalized Nike Mojo golf balls and add pictures of family members like daughters, sons, partners, grandkids, and even the family dog. Go to Amazon or Personalization Mall to order these sets.
