Gift Ideas for Golfers

 

For Minnesota golfers the greatest gift you could give is the gift of golf. As in an actual round of golf! This season local “linksters” were granted that unique opportunity with unseasonably warm temperatures. However, this is the exception to the rule here in the hinterlands and we’ve become accustomed to a much more traditional form of gift giving at this time of year. So, if you’re searching for the ideal gift for the golfer in your life, check out these suggestions:
Golf Membership
Before you get too carried away, we’re not talking about membership to some stuffy private golf club. Instead, we recommend membership to a quality public golf course that offers 18-holes of championship golf and amenities that make you feel like you’re at a private country club. Depending on the facility, full golf privileges, including range fees and a locker could cost anywhere from $1,500 to $5,000 per year. Sure, it’s not exactly a stocking stuffer price tag, however, keep in mind, this is unlimited golf for the fanatic in your household. […]
