Peter Millar G4 x PM Limited Edition Golf Shoe

The trend in golf over the past few years is moving more toward spikeless shoes. They’re often much more comfortable, they provide adequate stability, they’re a lighter weight and can be worn both on and off the golf course. Peter Millar has created one of the best-looking all-around shoes in the game today. Partnering with G/Fore, they’ve made a shoe that has a simple design but which packs a punch as far as its performance and features. The knit design makes it feel like you’re almost wearing nothing at all. $225


Johnnie-O Farber Prep-Formance ¼ Zip Pullover

If there’s one thing that’s true about a golfer’s wardrobe, it’s that they can never have enough ¼-zip pullovers. They’re good for those early mornings or chilly days on the course when only the most committed players stay the course. If your loved one loves the game, they’ll make adequate use of this stylish item. $148


Random Golf Club Field Kit

With chipping nets, a hitting mat and a set of lightweight balls to ensure you don’t knock your shot through the walls, this handy kit turns hotel rooms, your in-law’s house or virtually any room or yard into a place to practice your shot. $50



Straight Down Bridgewater Shirt

Golf is and has always been a well-dressed sport. From the three-piece twill suit of Old Tom Morris and the plus-fours of Bobby Jones’ era to the mock T-shirt made popular by Tiger Woods, golfers have always tried to find new ways to look good on the course. The Bridgewater Shirt by Straight Down is another example of this spirit. The button-down style of this fishing-print shirt is unique as well as stylish. $92


Straight Down Octoberfest Polo

If a button-down shirt is a little too adventurous for the golfer in your life, opt instead for this Octoberfest Polo from Straight Down. Not only is it stylish, it’s also timely. If you’re looking for a gift for a golfer who also enjoys his beer, look no further than this clever polo. $90


Levelwear Harbour Blades, Balatas, Persimmon T-Shirt

The Levelwear Harbour Blades, Balatas, Persimmon T-shirt makes a fantastic gift for several reasons. First, it lets other people know that the wearer knows golf by using words nongolfers may not understand.

It’s also as smart off the course as it is on. $19.50
