Bestselling golf gifts
Almost 2,000 people have given this gadget a 4.5-star rating. It's designed to be used as a warm-up to gently help golfers stretch and improve their range of motion before hitting the course.
If golf is a consistent part of their lifestyle, they might appreciate getting a daily tip to help improve their game.
And if they don't have a green nearby, they'll appreciate this putting trainer that acts as a stand-in for the cup. It rejects putts that wouldn't make it in the hole and returns good shots.
If your golfer's inspired by the legends of the game, they'll appreciate this memoir by Arnold Palmer. It's filled with exceptional stories from his life and career.
Best golf gear gifts
When they're looking for their lie after a long drive, it'll be easy to identify their custom ball. This 12 pack can be personalized with up to 51 characters and if they lose one of these to a brutal water hazard, they'll still have 11 left to play!

Train like the pros with this alignment guide and never miss a putt again.
Serious golfers will be impressed by this game-changing gadget. It accurately locates the pin within 1 yard, and the slope adjustment helps indicate when 150 yards uphill plays more like 166 yards. It's also legal for tournament play when the slope function is disabled.
They'll be sure to think of you when they're marking their putt with this personalized divot tool. For $10 more, you can also add a sweet message on the opposite side of the marker.
Any golfer and "Caddyshack" fan will thoroughly enjoy this clever gift. It's a nod to the film's mischievous gopher.

My husband has these pants in three different colors and frequently touts them as the most comfortable ever.

2. Hudson Skort
Outdoor Voices is popular for its hiking and yoga gear, but it's also got a great selection for golfers. This skort comes in four different colors and would look great paired with a simple polo or athletic shirt.
There are very few places where a visor is sartorially acceptable, but when it comes to golf, they're par for the course.
