Golfers are tough to shop for. It’s easy to pick up a golf tie or paperweight or T-shirt that says Par-Tee Animal. (Clever). But is that what they want?
Here’s a Myrtle Beach-inspired list to get you started.
And what could be better in this case than a Grand Strand guide to golfers’ gift giving? These are practical yet appreciated gifts any golfer would love.
An Evening of Top Golf
Golfers don’t need to be on the links to have a great time with golf, and Top Golf is proof of that. Top Golf is a complex teeming with a high-tech driving range and golf-related games. There’s also a posh lounge with food and drinks. It’s a golfer’s playground. (And those Cheesy Macaroni Bites are for real.) If they’ve been to Top Golf, it’ll be much appreciated. If they haven’t? They’ll likely want to return after one visit!
A PGA Superstore Shopping Spree
SO much great stuff! We’re talking the best of the best, with friendly, knowledgeable staff to help you get what’s right. Visit for yourself and do the shopping, or nab a gift card. Then they can peruse the sale section, upgrade their clubs, pick a new bag, and more. They’re also experts at club fittings and repair. Personalized balls would be a nice touch, wouldn’t they?
Taking lessons isn’t an indictment of a player’s ability; rather, it reveals their desire to improve. Most of us are intermediate in skill, with bad habits everywhere. If top pros insist on lessons for themselves, shouldn’t we follow? Here are places to consider in Myrtle Beach:
The Golf School of Myrtle Beach at River Oaks: Tune up your game with top-flight instruction. This outfit gives lessons to ages 5 and older, from fundamentals to fine-tuning.
Classic Swing Golf School: Lessons learned here will resonate for decades. Golf Magazine named Classic Swing one of America’s top 25 in the U.S.
19th Hole – Gift Cards to Fun After Golf Drinks
No matter how you score on the course, the 19th hole is an opportunity for redemption. Or at least, a cold drink. Get a booth for the foursome at one of these awesome watering holes:
New South Brewing: This microbrewery’s White Ale and Nut Brown Ale are local favorites and must-tries when you visit. It’s a relaxed yet refined atmosphere where the tall tales can begin.
Gordon Biersch Brewery: Enjoy fresh brews on tap at this German-style brewery and pub. It’s a good find for lunch and beer.
An In-Condo Chef for the Golf Group
It’s fun to cook at the beach, especially when you stay in a resort with a full kitchen. It’s even better when you don’t have to do all the work. Give the gift of an expertly-prepared gourmet meal. Let the group relax and have a great conversation while a chef fills the room with tempting aromas. Take A Chef allows you to customize cuisine and dishes and choose the right chef and menu. You can choose a wine and food tasting for a wonderful experience.
See? There are plenty of ways to show the golfers in your life a great time while they’re in Myrtle Beach. And you can save the coffee mugs and ties for Father’s Day and Mother’s Day.
