Golf Christmas Ideas

Here are six ideas for Christmas presents – some are obvious, some less so:

1. Mycoverpics - will take any pic you have and create a magazine cover for your intended recipient. Is there a ‘hero’ moment in their past? Find it, Mycoverpics it, and frame it.

2. will put a pic on a ball marker or pitch repairer or countless other things. I’m guessing this is more for company logos, but it might be worth a look for the golfer who has almost everything.

3. Golf Vouchers. Always popular, so why not send someone off to a dream golf destination:
Ballyliffin, Adare, Druid’s Glen are just three excellent examples. There are countless others. They don’t have to be that expensive either: Ballyliffin’s Winter rates are €40.
And remember, most clubs give automatic GUI discounts.

4. Golf Grip Raincoat is novel and is attuned perfectly to our Irish weather. Some more details here.

5. Books: three I enjoyed this year were:
The Longest Shot by Neil Sagebiel,
Life as a Way of Golf by Ivan Morris and
- Golf on the Rocks by Gary Sutherland.
Three very different books – one about the greatest golfing upset, one about the quest for success and the battles (and lessons) it involves, and one about a man’s Scottish island golfing odyssey.

6. Clothing: go for something a bit different: try Parallel Clothing or something completely different (even Poulter would blush): Royal and Awesome
