You’ve gotta love dads. They go to work, coach T-ball games, sit through dance recitals, mow the lawn, fix leaky faucets and do it all without one word of complaint.
All they ask for in return is your unconditional love – and a few hours to play golf every once in a while. Here’s your chance to make his year this Father’s Day on June 16.
Instead of another tie or sweater, give dad what he really wants with a golf-related gift. Myrtle Beach Golf presents the best Father’s Day gifts for dear old dad:
Accessories: It’s a proven fact that dads love tools, and that rule also applies to golf. Pick up a nice set of personalized ball markers and divot tools to go along with a handy golf umbrella or bag, the perfect place to carry more tools. For fathers whose favorite holes are the 19th, a monogrammed flask, whisky snifter or cigar cutter.
Apparel: Most dads aren’t known for their sense of fashion so help the old man out with some new duds. Outlets like Golf Galaxy and The Golf Warehouse offer affordable golf apparel like polo shirts, slacks, knickers, ponchos, socks, shoes and hats. Popular brands include Holderness & Bourne, Nike, Under Armour and Puma.
Art: Help dad decorate his man cave with some golf-themed art to brighten his office and his day. Outlets Etsy and Canvas Freaks feature a wide selection of golf-related art, including scenes of some of the world’s most famous golf holes and courses, like Augusta National, Pebble Beach and St. Andrews. Top portraits feature Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.
Books: Even dads need a little down time, and there are some must-reads out there for golfers. Classics include “A Good Walk Spoiled” by Mark Feinstein, “Five Lessons” by Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus’ autobiography “A Life Well Played”, and Mark Frost’s “The Greatest Game Ever Played” and “The Match: The Day the Game of Golf Changed Forever”.
Clubs: Like an old, hole-filled T-shirt or a run-down pick-up truck, dads tend to hang on to the classics. That also applies to his golf clubs, so he’s probably overdue for an upgrade. Major brands like Callaway, Nike, Ping, TaylorMade, Titleist, Tommy Armour, Wilson make excellent drivers, irons, putters and wedges to help take dad’s game to the next level.
Fan Gear: Golfers are known for being fans of all sports, and odds are that dear old dad is no exception. Whether he roots for his college alma mater’s sports teams or is an avid fan of pro leagues like the NFL, NBA, MLB or NASCAR, dad would love to show off his true colors with team logoed golf gear.
Gadgets: Fathers love to tinker with new toys, and the golf market is flooded with them. Help dad enter the 21st century with a Garmin Golf watch or a GPS rangefinder. If he’s really tech savvy, the latest golf apps that aim to sharpen your game are Game Golf Live, SkyPro Swing Trainer and Zepp Golf 2.
Practice Gear: Give dad a reason to spend more time in the yard and garage with some practice gear designed to improve his swing. Chipping nets, drive simulators and putting greens are perfect for practice time, and private lessons can go a long way toward lowering his handicap.
For the world’s greatest dad, get the world’s greatest gift with a golf trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. What better way for dad to show off all his new gear than to play the award-winning courses on the Grand Strand.
