With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, you’re probably wondering what on earth you can buy a partner who has everything. Golf courses are closed in some parts of the UK due to the COVID-19 pandemic, though they remain open in Scotland, which is great news if your partner is obsessed with the sport. Below, we’ve put together some golf gift ideas that will keep your partner occupied whether they’re allowed on the course or they’re at home…
Have some fun with desktop golf
Practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect. As we’ve already touched upon, it’s pretty hard to play a full 18 during the current pandemic, so consider buying your partner a desktop mini golf set so they can have some fun and practice their swing from the comfort of their home office. It’s the ideal novelty gift and it costs less than £10/$10 – bonus!
Practice makes perfect with a hitting net
If your partner’s really missing golf and needs a way to practice from the living room, a golf hitting net could be the solution. With a foldable design, the cloth can be carried and easily assembled when they fancy a session – it’s designed to survive hundreds of hits and improve golf skills in your own backyards or at home as a game. This is also a useful tool if you want to get your kids into the sport – turn it into a competitive afternoon of fun and they’ll learn!
Keep them on time with a golf watch
Today’s golf watches do much more than give you yardage to the green – they can track your every shot and help you become a better golfer. The truth is that there are so many models on the market and some are incredibly expensive, but the good news is that you’ll likely find something within your budget. The Apple Watch can be “golf-ified” with third-party apps, but you’ll likely get more use out of the entry-level Garmin Approach S10 which is sold for less than £150. The SkyCaddie LX5 is another popular model, priced at £300, covering 35,000 courses around the world, whilst the Garmin Approach S62 is expensive but does the job.
Gift a personalized golf towel
It’s so important to keep your golf equipment dry and clean when you’re out on the course, especially if you want to achieve a low score. Buy your loved one a personalized golf towel with their initials or a romantic message embroidered onto it – it can be attached to their bag to ensure their clubs stay in the best possible condition – and always ready for play.
Let them choose their own
Finally, if you’re struggling to think of a gift idea for your partner and you don’t want to waste money on something they’re not going to use, consider buying them a gift card that they can put towards a new set of clubs or some new clothes. The Auchterlonies golf shop Scotland, for example, allows customers to buy gift cards which can be spent on everything from hats and gloves to balls and pre-owned clubs. It’ll no doubt put a smile on your loved one’s face.
