Dormie Birdie Hunting Season Headcover
An Editor’s Choice repeat winner, Dormie’s handcrafted leather goods are all made-to-order by a small team of artisans in Nova Scotia, where the co-founders (who are also brothers) grew up. Known for their playful, singular style, the brand released this particular headcover as part of a larger, tongue-and-cheek “Birdie Hunting Season” collection. It’s finished with embroidered detailing, canvas-and-leather constructions and a buttery bright orange velvet liner.

Sun Mountain Pathfinder PX3 Push Cart
The season may be coming to a close in most areas of the country, but a pushcart is a worthy investment to make sure they are equipped to be among the first to get back on the course after the frost clears. This three-wheeler from Sun Mountain has several storage options for accessories, will fit almost any golf bag and folds into a compact, easy-to-store size.
Cuater Men's Eighteener Socks
It’s often said that luxury lies in the details. And besides, what golfer doesn’t love a specialty-designed performance sock to make their game extra cushioned—and extra enjoyable? These highly-rated Cuater socks come in sophisticated colorways with an elastic arch for compressive support to fuel your golf game well past the holiday season.
Municipal Sport Utility Anorak
This all-purpose anorak is a great gift for any outdoorsy person in your life. With a zippable hood for stormier days and waterproof security pockets for stashing valuables, this versatile layering piece is ready for almost anything the skies bring. Get this for the golfer in your life who plays, rain or shine, thrives off adventure and wants to look the part.
Outdoor Voices SheerRib Turtleneck
This turtleneck will get worn, even if they’re not on the golf course around the holidays. It’s a lightweight base layer with a stylish ribbed texture that comes in white or a soft gray shade. The slim-fitting top is slightly sheer, so make sure you layer properly over AND underneath it.
Adidas Special Edition Samba Spikeless Golf Shoes
While designed for utility and serious play, these limited release golf shoes are sleek enough to be worn on and off the course. They're made in part with recycled materials and come in a variety of on-trend colorways, ranging from soft pink to simple gray. The rubber outsole adds grip and maintains the classic “low-profile” look adidas is known for in its footwear.
Reks Sport Sunglasses with Golf Lens
These sporty shades have lenses specifically designed for golfers to track the ball and read greens more precisely. The lenses are anti-reflective, but not polarized—polarization can cause distortion and make it more difficult to read the sheen of the grass, which can negatively impact putting. We recently gave these a test on the course and beyond the super clear vision, they are extremely comfortable. You don't even notice you have them on. We'd also highly recommend the Color Boosting lenses, which have special dyes that increase the contrast between colors. On a bright, sunny day, the effect is pretty stunning. It's like seeing everything in 4HD.
Criquet Men's Chris Pine Polo Shirt
To design this silhouette, Criquet analyzed the looks of iconic golfers. The result? A polo that’ll become a new go-to polo in any golfer's closet. This forest green rendition, cheekily named for actor Chris Pine, is also a favorite of Luke Wilson, one of the brand’s ambassadors.
Etsy Chicago AJ1 Inspired Golf Ball Marker
This handmade ball marker comes from Etsy, a great virtual shopping destination for personalized and custom gifts for golfers and sneakerheads alike. The shoe-know-it-alls in your foursome will love this retro nod to the iconic original 1984 Chicago Air Jordans One.
Therabody Theragun mini
Therabody made the popular Theragun Mini massage gun 20 percent smaller and 30 percent lighter than the original version. Easy to slip into the pocket of a golf bag or bring on the road, the Theragun Mini provides repetitive massage to relieve tension, increase blood flow and activate muscles. It has three speed options and three head attachments to help provide a more customizable treatment depending on the muscle group or trigger point you want to target.
Radmor Lauren Retro Women's Polo
This bubbly retro polo comes from Radmor, a sustainable golf brand with timeless options for men and women, like this cloud blue option we love. It’s designed with sophisticated-looking biodegradable natural shell buttons and high quality, planet-friendly Peruvian cotton.
PuttOut Large Putting Mat
At-home putting is a great way to stay on top of your game in the off-season. This extra-large mat has five targets and a variety of alignment lines to encourage a more focused and productive putting session.
Newly back in stock, these ingenious punching bag golf cart attachments make for thoughtful, and hilarious, gifts for your favorite stressed-out golfers (and sore losers!). Added bonus: they’ll think of—and thank you—with every punch.
Yeti Yonder 1-Liter Bottle
A new model from Yeti, this lightweight water bottle is made with a shatter-resistant BPA-free plastic. The leakproof cap tops a spout opening that’s easy to drink from, but twists off when you need to add ice or clean it.
Students Golf Sessions S/S Shirt
Constructed using cut-and-sew methods popular with urban fashion designers, this golf-centric lifestyle brand boasts a loyal following and, last season, nearly entirely sold out its collection. This newly released polo cabana style collared shirt features a cotton-poly blend with skate-inspired artwork screen-print of the brand name along the front and back.
G/FORE Zero Putts Given Stretch Twill Snapback Hat
For the golfers on your holiday shopping list who swing big and live even bigger, this punchy cherry red performance twill cap speaks for itself.
FootJoy X Todd Snyder Raglan Knit Pique Polo
A versatile, vintage-style raglan polo—like this one—works as an upscale, classic option for the course, but also pairs well with a belt and jeans or a sports coat—just like the other pieces from this collaboration between American designer Todd Snyder and FootJoy. This print of stylized golf bags and clubs makes for a particularly playful gift.
