5 Holiday Golf Gifts for the Stylish Golfer

Each year, golfers across the globe fight the late-fall chill to squeeze in what may be their final round of the season. Aside from a few warm-weather places enjoying year-round play, the holiday season signifies the end is near for many.

Other than that spring golf getaway (which seems lightyears away), there can be little to look forward to on the golf calendar. However, the very same holiday season sidelining the clubs also rings-in the best time of year to elevate the golf wardrobe with some stylish holiday golf gifts.

For the fashionable golfer, this respite of golf lends itself as an opportunity to scour the many stylish golf brands for looks to impress come spring — or, dare I say during an unexpected December bonus round?

Whether you’re buying for a golf-crazed friend or spouse, or simply treating yourself this season, we’ve got you covered with some ideas for great holiday golf gifts. Forget the useless gadgets and bland shirts — show up with any of these and trust you’ll be the hit of the holiday.

5 Holiday Golf Gifts for the Stylish Golfer

1) An Elevated Golf Shoe 

The old adage that a good pair of shoes is an investment worth making applies to the golf course, too. By season’s end, most golfers have one thing in common: their golf shoes are in desperate need of a refresh. Months of play (and likely a lack of care) mean the once pearly white kicks have all but lost their luster. 

Just like a box of golf balls, every golfer can always use another pair of golf shoes. And no one does stylish golf shoes like G/FORE. Reach for the white Longwing Gallivanter for a modern take on a classic wingtip, or push the limit with the super unique, winter appropriate Golf Boot. Toss in a few shoe trees as a friendly reminder to keep them looking fresh!

2) Warm Trousers

Lightweight, performance fabric is all the rage these days, but when the days grow shorter and temperatures dip, it’s time to turn for a warmer trouser. Look for a pant made primarily with cotton, that also includes a little something like elastane or spandex for an added stretch. This combo offers added warmth for blustery days, and they look just as good off the course, too. 

The trim fitting Jaguar Chino Pant by Ted Baker fits the mold, with added features like water resistant fabric, taped inner waistband and a velcro tab for glove storage setting them apart from the rest.

3) A Bold Golf Polo

If the thought of gifting a golf polo sounds mundane and boring, think again. Over the past few years, a handful of golf brands have been dialing-it-up with eye-catching designs sure to spice up your closet of stripes and solids. 

Among the leaders of bold designs, the G/FORE Skull & T’s Embroidered Polo offers a fun design in an elegant manner. A knitted, tipped collar yields a sporty contrast, while the luxurious pique fabric proves buttery soft on the skin. Pair printed polos with a solid trouser and an elevated golf shoe for an ultra-clean look.

Also, for a myriad of other intriguing, unique prints, check out the lineup of polos by Greyson Clothiers. The Camowolf & Falling Feathers polos are two personal favorites.

4) Head-Turning Outerwear 

Nothing completes a player’s cold-weather wardrobe like a great outerwear piece. Quilted Jackets should be a mainstay for every fashionable golfer as their combo of warmth and style are unmatched.

One particular favorite head-turner is the RLX Quilted Cardigan. This new take on a traditional cardigan (a staple piece for any dapper gent) is even better than the ever-popular RLX Quilted Jacket. A back and sleeves of merino wool offer free range of motion, while the quilted front elevate the look while also providing core warmth. Wear it to the club, or on the streets, and watch the heads turn.

5) Premium Waterproof Rain Gear

Every avid golfer needs a great rain suit, and there’s no better time than the holiday season to pick one up. Yes, they are expensive, but invest in a premium option, and it will literally last a lifetime.

Details matter when it comes to rain gear, and few do it better than Galvin Green. GORE-TEX fabrics fight the elements while a high-rise, rubberized collar edge, shaped sleeves, and adjustable side tabs all enhance fit and performance.

Oh, and that lifetime (yes, lifetime) waterproof guarantee proves you’ll have it forever. Choose a neutral color for a timeless look, or go with any number of their colorful designs (more on choosing waterproofs here).
