If you're a golf junkie like me, you probably fall under the category of "the golfer who has everything."
We're tough to buy for. It can be frustrating and downright annoying. Luckily, there are so many cool things out there now -- golf accessories, in particular -- that will even golfers like me delighted to receive on Christmas morning.
Here are three items that even "the golfer who has everything" would love this holiday season.
1. Seamus Golf and CRU Golf headcovers.
One of the easiest ways to distinguish your bag from others is with the headcovers you choose to put on your driver, fairway woods and hybrids. Who wants that stock company headcover everyone else has? Not me.
Seamus Golf makes beautiful tartan headcovers that should bring you instant good karma from the Golf Gods because having these in your bag is like tipping your cap to Scotland, the birthplace of golf. There are so many fun patterns that will give your bag color, so mix it up -- don't get all of the same patterns. Plus, you can even have a leather label added to the headcover with your initials or a logo. Cost: $45 and up per cover. www.seamusgolf.com.
CRU Golf is another great option. Its headcovers come in a variety of leather designs and are 100 percent customizable and made in the USA. The headcovers feature a moisture wicking interior that ensures proper functionality in dry or wet conditions. You can choose the colors you'd like to use, as well as the pattern and personalization. Cost: $36.99 and up per cover. www.crugolf.com.
2. The Players Towel.
The Players Towel is the ultimate golf towel for the golfer who otherwise has everything. This towel alone will make the favorite golfer on your shopping list feel like a touring professional. Players Towel is the best towel I've seen for golfers. Its unique weave pattern holds more than 300 times its weight in water, which makes it effective at cleaning ridges and retaining moisture. And, my favorite part? The personalization the company offers on it's towels. You can either pick from a library of logos, have your own embroidered on there, or even have your name embroidered on the towel. There are a variety of color options for both the towel and the stitching. Cost: Starting at $24.99. www.playerstowel.com.
3. CarveOn Custom Leather Scorecard Holder.
Again, for the golfer who has everything, it's all about finding that special something that they don't have... and maybe didn't even know existed. That's where a company based in Dublin, Ireland comes from with its offerings of custom leather scorecard holders and yardage book covers. Let's face it, not everyone needs a yardage book cover. However, any golfer could use a scorecard holder that will keep your scorecard nice and neat and also store that short pencil so it does poke through your pants pocket. CarveOn is the best out there... so good, in fact, that world No. 1 Rory McIlroy keeps a CarveOn yardage book cover in his back pocket. Once again, the customization is what makes this item so special. You can have a logo, your name, or virtually anything else emblazoned on the vegetable tanned Tuscan leather. Cost: Starting at $74.75. www.carveon.com.
