The calendar has turned to June so it can only mean one thing: Father’s Day is on the horizon and you are scrambling to find the old man a gift.
If you are on the hunt for a golf related present, here are five that will add a little enjoyment to Dad’s day, on and off the course.
– If your Pops embraces technology, the Arccos Golf smart sensors (pictured right) and caddie app will disprove the old adage that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. The sensors provide automatic shot tracking, taking the guesswork out of how far you hit clubs, and it provides strokes gained insight, allowing him to assess the state of his game using the same metrics the pros use. Arccos touts the average new member sees a five-stroke improvement the first year using the technology; that kind of gain makes the $159.99 cost for the GEN3+ system a bargain.
– TRUE has launched its exciting new “Tour Collection” featuring the highly-anticipated LUX Tour ($225) and OG Tour golf shoes ($195), the premium LUX Tour Polo Tour Logo Edition and midweight Quarter Zip Tour Logo Edition, and (last but not least) the breathable LUX Tech Tour 5-Panel Hat. The LUX Tour shoe is TRUE’s take on the modern performance golf shoe designed to the rigorous standards of its PGA TOUR staff, including co-founder Ryan Moore, Joel Dahmen and Chris Kirk.
– Possessions are nice but few things in life beat a great experience and the memories that accompany it. With that said, the ultimate gift is a father-son Myrtle Beach golf trip. Checkout the Founders Group All-Inclusive, an offer that lets you play layouts like Grande Dunes Resort Course (top photo), King’s North at Myrtle Beach National and TPC Myrtle Beach (pictured right) while enjoying free lunch, two draft beers and maximum value. The quality of the golf is only exceeded by the quality time you get to spend with your Dad.
– Tom Coyne’s latest book, “A Course Called America,” is a must if your father likes to read. The third in a series of tomes that attempt to find the essence of the game via the courses we play, Coyne traverses the nation playing some of golf’s greatest layouts and humble munis while telling the stories of the people he teed it up with. The first two books in the series, “A Course Called Ireland” and “A Course Called Scotland” are classics as well.
– If you want to add a little fun to your father’s day gift, checkout the golf cart decanter and glasses gift set. Featuring a decanter with a tap situated on a golf cart, this is a quirky gift ($169) but if your father enjoys a later afternoon cocktail he will love it.
Golf is a family game, making it the ideal inspiration for a Father’s Day gift.
