Christmas Golf Gifts (That Golfers Actually Want)

Every golfer will tell you that they have received well-meaning but utterly useless golf gifts. Whether for Christmas, birthdays or Father's Day, the question "what do I buy for the golfer in my life" is all-too-often answered with golf-club-shaped pens, over-complicated leather tee-peg-holders, or a (now sadly discontinued) coffee cup that also let you keep your score and stats. The mind boggles.

Of course, we're biased, but the perfect Father's Day golf gift is a Pocket Timer. Why? Well, because...

1 It's only £14.99 with free delivery. Of course, you love your dad but you can show that by showering him with affection not with expensive gifts.

2 Every time he uses it, he'll think of you. Isn't that nice? Golf takes him away from you often enough and for hours (or even days) at a time, so every time he puts Pocket Timer in his, er, pocket he'll be reminded of the thoughtful, loving person who bought it for him.

3 You can have a little joke at his expense. Of course, you only use Pocket Timer when you've hit a bad shot and your ball has gone into the rough (or somewhere worse). Your dad, hit a bad shot? Surely not!

4 Did we mention it's only £14.99 with free delivery? Good.

5 It comes in a shiny packet that looks nice and is really easy to wrap.

6 Dad can use it on any golf course that he plays! The long grass at 2023 Ryder Cup venue Marco Simone in Italy shows that a Pocket Timer is essential when you play here, unless you have thousands of golf fans and TV cameras following you.

7 It will help him win.

8 All his friends will be jealous.

9 He can use it to annoy that bloke he doesn't like up at the Club.

10 Pocket Timer is the perfect gift for the golfer in your life. It's the must-have golf gadget that they'll hope they never have to use.

Doesn't work in lakes though.
