5 Great Gift Ideas for Christmas for the Golfer in Your Life
1. A prepaid round (or rounds!) of golf.
The three Palmetto Dunes Resort Golf Courses have hosted tournaments that included some of golf’s biggest names, like Davis Love III, Tiger Woods and Phil Michelson. The 17th hole of the Arthur Hills Course at Palmetto Hall is short but challenging, and the 390-yard dogleg left Par 4 will test even the pros. Tiger tried to do it in one shot, and even he scored an eight!
2. Golf lessons.
It is well known that golf is a game of opposites — that’s why it’s so hard to teach yourself to play! A lesson with an effective instructor can go a long way toward fewer putts, longer drives and lower scores. Let a digital swing analysis diagnose and develop your technique, and tell you something about your swing that you didn’t know. Palmetto Dunes’ PGA Class-A coaches teach beginners, collegiate golfers and everyone in between, and offer private and group lessons. Gift certificates with flexible timing are also available.
3. Golf shirts.
Palmetto Dunes’ three Pro Shops have excellent selections of Travis Mathews, Peter Millar, Adidas and Straight Down. Also, their classy accessory selection makes shopping for stocking stuffers for any golfer easy!
4. A playing lesson.
Another great gift for all ages and skill levels is the opportunity to play alongside a pro. When you “Play with the Pro and Learn as You Go,” clubs and equipment are provided. The golfing student learns technique, tips and tricks, etiquette and course management, while playing through with a professional. Instruction manual and videos of lessons learned included!
5. Gift card for all of the above.
Gift cards are simple and flexible, and the best part is that your beloved golfer can choose exactly how he or she wants to use it.
