2015 GolfPH Holiday Gift Guide

2015 GolfPH Holiday Gift Guide

What to give the golfer that has everything?

No Kidding…

That’s what we were wondering when we came out with our first GolfPH Holiday Gift Guide last year.

[Click Here for the 2014 GolfPH Holiday Gift Guide]

It was actually one of our most popular posts. So popular, that we’ve decided to come out with another version for this year.

We figured, Christmas is fast approaching and your opportunities to pick the perfect gift for your loved one are getting slim. Don’t procrastinate this season and make sure you choose something they will really love from this list. It is the time to give and the time to receive, so… make sure you pick something in there for yourself as well.

Enjoy!

1 Hr Club Fitting Session w/ Jake Ong  (1,000 PHP)

The Gift For Everyone

When it comes to the game of golf, everyone is looking for an immediate way to get better. It doesn’t matter what level in the game you are at. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you play. The goal will always still be the same and that is, to get a better score.

The #1 thing that will help your game RIGHT AWAY is to get “Club Fitted.”

This Christmas, do yourself a favor and get clubs that are meant for you. Quit making your life so difficult. Golf wasn’t meant to be that stressful. If you feel like helping a friend or loved one out too, get him/her the gift that keeps on giving everyday out on the course.

Get custom fitted by Jake Ong of Custom Clubmakers, one of the best in the country for only 1000PHP.

Electronic Golf Putting Cup (949 PHP)

The “Absolutely Necessary” Gift

The Electronic Golf Putting Cup is our absolutely necessary gift for any golfer. It gives the beginner of the avid golfer a break wherever you are. Whether you are playing at home or in the office, there is no easier way to keep your putts on track than with this device. You can use it anywhere, anytime. It is so conveniently small that it can fit in a briefcase or an overnight bag or even your back pocket (if you have big pants pockets :))!  Sounds great right? You gotta have one!

 
 

Pashion Potty Putter Golf Set (1,031 PHP)

Pashion Potty Putter Golf Set (1,031 PHP)

Best “Gag” Golf Gift

The average man spends over 1 Hour a week on the toilet. For some people it’s even longer. Are you looking for a perfect gift for the man of the hour? Good news! We found it!

The Potty Putter makes a great gift item for that special someone who doesn’t mind spending a little bit more time on their throne. Most of us spend our time doing something unproductive on our phones, but why not make use of this time to improve your short game.

Here’s how it works. Set up the green nicely against the base of your toilet bowl. Sit down. Grab the putter. Line up your shot and try to make it in the hole. Very simple. Very easy to use and it looks much better in a bachelor pad bathroom than your typical toilet seat cover set. This is one of the greatest gag gifts to give to the golfer in your life.

 
 

The Original ’10 Year’ Glenmorangie (1,700 PHP)

The Original ’10 Year’ Glenmorangie (1,700 PHP)

The “Classy Practical” Gift

If you are looking for a classy, yet practical gift to give your Father in law, Boss, colleague, or pretty much any golfer… you can never go wrong with a fine bottle of scotch. The box and bottle are worth of creating a display in the office or home. It is a gift for people to celebrate with and share amazing stories while sharing a drink together. Perfect for bringing families and friends together this holiday season!

My personal recommendation, which also happens to be the best selling single malt in Scotland for the past 30 years is the original 10 year Glenmorangie. If you are also feeling a bit more generous, you can also get the Glenmorangie 12 yr (Quinta Ruban) , which I am sure they will love.

You can find most Glenmorangie products at your nearest Rustans or maybe some of the other supermarkets.

Certified UNHS Golf Handicap (37% off) 

Certified UNHS Golf Handicap (37% off)

The “Useful” Gift

Your handicap score is a great way for you to track your score, keep yourself accountable and look at your progress from previous years. It is also absolutely necessary as many international or official tournaments here in the Philippines require you to submit your “Handicap Score” when entering.

Most people don’t really understand or know how to calculate their own score, so why not let the UNHS do it for you?

At 37% it’s totally worth it. Get it today before the price goes up.

 
 

10 Pcs Joke Nude Lady Golf Tees (416 PHP)

10 Pcs Joke Nude Lady Golf Tees (416 PHP)

The Gift that “Laughs”

Get the gift that will be the laugh of the night.

These shapely golf tees aren’t just attractive tees. The manufacturers of these beauties thought of everything. You can use multipurpose tees as a ball marker and a divot tool! Once you pop these out on the course, you will surely attract a lot of looks and share a few great jokes with your golf buddies. They are stronger than the wooden tees and can take quite the spanking.

Wait until you surprise your friends the next time you tee-up. I am pretty sure they’ve never played with a tee like this and you’ll definitely grab their attention.

 
 

Backyard Golf Practice Hole Cup (566 PHP)

Backyard Golf Practice Hole Cup (566 PHP)

The “Green” Gift

Practice makes Perfect! For most of us, practicing means loading up your clubs, getting into your car and sitting in endless minutes in the car as you drive to the nearest driving range with a putting area. For most of us, our short game is the bane of our entire existence on the course. Your short game usually is the determining factor between a par or a double bogey. A putting return device in the office over carpet just doesn’t cut it.

To be able to achieve success in your short game, you need to practice as much as you can in the most realistic setting, which usually means on grass. Take your passion to your backyard or garden. Stop wasting that green area outside and install your own putting green that your friends will envy.

This Backyard Golf Practice Hole Cup will allow you to play and practice in the likeness of your own home. It is also unique and makes an excellent holiday gift for any golfer.

Garmin Approach G8 Black (18,869 PHP)

The “Caddie Buster” Gift

Don’t trust those caddies. Not all of them at least.

It even has most of the Philippine golf courses. You can use it anywhere in the world and it will give you that extra advantage on the course in knowing exactly where to hit your ball. Sometimes you just can’t see the green from where you are, so why guess?

This is definitely a golf gift worth considering even for yourself.

Wi-Fi Camera Quadcopter Drone (3,599 PHP)

The “Techy Cool” Gift

Drones are one of the hottest things to have launched in the public toy market since last year. When you heard the word, you thought “wow that’s so cool,” but automatically associated it with something that wasn’t practical to buy because it was just not affordable. The great news is that today there are so many awesome and affordable models like this Wi-Fi Quadcopter Drone out on the market. It boasts features that earlier models launched don’t have and at lower prices. Imagine taking aerial video footage of you and your buddies on the golf course.

This is the best gift for the techy golfer.
