    Gifts
for the
Golfer
Golf is a sport that many take very seriously. Others not so much. No matter the skill level of that special
someone on your Christmas list this year, plenty of options for gifts are available.
New balls, golf bags and clubs will be flying off the shelves this holiday season. Why not set your gift apart
from the rest?
Rain Gear
You’re in the middle of walking a
long hole with minimum tree cover, and
the skies open up. Rain showers down
on you and you have no choice but to
laugh it off and walk a little faster. If you
play golf regularly, this has likely
happened to you.
Rain gear can be an invaluable tool
to golfers who choose to play through
inclement weather – even in downpour
conditions. Many companies make
waterproof rain hoods that snap on a
golf bag, allowing for easy access to
clubs in adverse conditions.
You could also check your
recipient’s bag sometime to see if the
golfer is properly prepared for the rain.
A golf umbrella and rain slicker can go
a long way in the wet weather.
GPS Units
Sometimes even the most high-level golfers need a hand. If they don’t have a caddy to help them
measure distance or identify course challenges, the next best thing may be a portable GPS unit that
gives them laser-accurate information on these factors.
These units provide accurate yardages to both the green and layup locations. They display information
on high-resolution screens and function similarly to a GPS device you may rely on in your car.
Animal Head Covers
If you’ve watched any professional golf, you know that many of the sport’s superstars cover
their club heads with stuffed animal heads like lions, Koala bears and tigers. The fluffy features
may seem a bit zany, but they actually do serve a purpose – protecting the club heads from the
elements while also giving many otherwise serious golfers a reason to relax and smile every
once in a while.
Some online companies have every breed of dog, farm animal and even sea creature
imaginable on their head cover line. From monkeys to wild boars, you can find a product that
fits the personality of the golfer in your life.
Wishing all of
Wallowa County
a very Merry
Christmas!
