Now that Turkey Day over, the Holiday Season is here! And while I’m glad to offer hundreds of great golfin’ gifts at The Cave, I know that sometimes searching for that one perfect gift to give a golfer (or yourself!) can leave you exasperated. But don’t worry, golfers aren’t as hard to shop for as you may think. Keep reading for a few of my favorite tips to help get the ball rolling…Under the tree and into the cup hopefully!
Training Aids – While it’s true that every golfer wants to get better and golf training aids can usually be found for just about any budget, big or small, you’ll probably want to take extra steps to ensure the golfer doesn’t think you’re saying, “Your game stinks!” with your gift. Hopefully you know the person well enough to know if they are particularly sensitive or will gladly welcome the gift. You can score extra points by gearing your gift towards their individual weaknesses: golf swing aids like the swing analyzer to help improve swing speed, or alignment guide if they keep hittin’ draws.
Fitness Equipment – You’ve gotta be careful with this one too. Buying someone exercise equipment might be taken the wrong way. As if you are saying “Hey I love you but lose 10lbs.” But, being in shape is essential to the golfin’ game. Some of the fitness gear is target for balance like the Wobble Board which can help the golfer gain better balance, and a stronger core, which can improve distance and accuracy!
Course Accessories – Golf can be an expensive hobby, especially when you’re still losing a golf ball every other hole or tearing through golf gloves at the range. So every golfer will appreciate someone else chipping in for the gear they need like golf balls and tees. Used balls are great for practice – if they lose one, who cares? Plus you can score extra brownie points by getting their favorite brand ball or their preferred length of tee. Even practical on-course tools like divot tools, golf towels or the like are always welcomed by just about any golfer.
Gift Certificates – The biggest problem with buying big-ticket items like clubs for a golfer is that it can be such a personal thing, especially drivers and putters. Best stick to getting a gift card that allows the golfer to pick out exactly what they like and need. Don’t forget that picking up a round or two at a local golf course or springing for a day at an exclusive “destination” course is sure to be a hit.
Let’s hear what YOU are hoping to unwrap this holiday season! Leave a comment below and be sure to tell us what the best golf gift you’ve ever given or gotten was, and why.

Rockbottomgolf.com’s Price Match Guarantee
I know, I find it hard to believe too! But every once in a great while someone can find a price LOWER than Rock Bottom Golf’s. But I wouldn’t be living up to my name if I didn’t have the LOWEST price out there! So here’s what I’m going to do. If you find a price lower than mine, send me an email at Scratch@RockBottomGolf.com with the item, the price and a link to it on the web. The Cave Crew will check it out and if everything is accurate, I’m going to give you it at the lower price PLUS give you an additional 15% of the difference off the price! Here’s an example of some Cave Math:
Let’s say you see an item out there for $89.99 while my price is at $99.99. In other words, $10 beneath what I have mine priced at. I’ll take $10 off AND get you an additional $1.50 off ($10 X 15%). That’s a Caveman Promise!
Now for some legal mumbo jumbo from the law speakin’ guys:
- Items must be the exact same model and condition.
- Items found out on auction sites do not apply.
- Item price must be current and approved by the Cave Crew prior to purchase to receive discount. Past prices do not apply. In technical terms, “No Backsies”!
- The seller of the discounted item must have an authorized account with the manufacturer.
See, that wasn’t so bad now was it?
