Best Golf Gift Cards
Golf gifts cards are a neat way to avoid having to winkle out of someone what they want - is it a new driver, a new putter, some better waterproofs, a handy training aid that has caught their eye, or perhaps just some tees and golf balls? An easy way is to let the golfer choose for themselves: simply give them one of the best golf gift cards on the market. Importantly most retailers offer several amounts so you can spend as much as you like on a gift card, and you can also either get physical or electronic ones as well so there is a degree of flexibility available.

Amazon gift cards come in a number of different styles and denominations, from standard cards to gift boxes and E vouchers. The retailer boasts that the gift cards are redeemable towards millions of items on Amazon so they don't have to just be spent on golf items.
But if the intention is that you recipient will get themselves something for their golf, then Amazon have more than 100,000 golf-related products on each of their US and UK sites.
Rock Bottom Golf offer either traditional or electronic gift cards. The traditional cards come in $10, $25, $50 and $100 denominations. Or you can choose your own value with an e-card.
As well as new equipment, Rock Bottom Golf also offers some pre-owned equipment. Its '30-Day Playability Guarantee' allows buyers to return the selected pre-owned items for store credit if the purchaser does not find it suits their game.
Walmart's golf section is huge ranging from golf club sets, to balls to bags with some well-trusted and respected golf brands. There is also an endless amount of non-golfing products that can be bought at the store, too, using these gift cards.
There are loads of cards to choose from in terms of design and price, whilst you can also get cards for specific brands like Starbucks, Playstation, Uber and many, many more. The Netflix card in particular is a popular choice.
Whatever piece of golf equipment you need, PGA Tour Superstore has you covered and the great thing about the gift cards is you can get an electronic one, or a physical card as well.
With the e-card you can easily send it to the recipient's email address with a message and there doesn't appear to be a limit on the dollar amount you can use either.
Also the great thing here is you are not limited to golf stuff because Nike make so many different products across a variety of sports and activities.
But if you aren't a fan of Nike and want adidas, then there are also gift cards available from the brand. Once again you can get electronic and physical cards, as well as Bulk gift cards with a minimum of $250.
We love adidas golf shoes and always need a new pair of running shoes so these cards might come in very handy for the Golf Monthly team.
Scottsdale Golf is an excellent golf retailer with loads of golf equipment especially through the online store. The vouchers range from £10 to £250 whilst you can also get these cool Fit-Build-Play vouchers too which is basically a club-fitting. These range from £50 to £200 and cover nearly every golf club in the bag.
These are valid for use online or in the Manchester, UK store. Vouchers have to be spent within 12 months from the date of purchase.
UK retailer Sports Direct has a range of golf products as well as many general sports and leisure ones, including an extensive clothing department.
Although they are carry an extensive range of Slazenger equipment, they also stock several other well-known golf brands such as Callaway, Mizuno, Titleist and TaylorMade. Their gift cards are available to spend both in store and online. The gift cards range from £5 to £250 and are valid for 24 months.
This card gives you more than 70 sports to chose products from. But on the golfing front as well as a range of clothing, Decathlon stocks a full range of equipment and accessories. The Decathlon gift card is valid for two years from the date of purchase.
Gift cards start at £10 and go up to £200. A £20 gift card could get the recipient a dozen Decathlon Inesis Tour 900 balls, which Golf Monthly has found to be one of the strongest performers in the low-cost ball category.
What to consider when buying a gift card
There a few factors you need to consider when buying a golf gift card and we have gone into those below.
First things first it is important you think about which retailer you want to use when purchasing a gift card. Some websites have a lot more stock not just when it comes to specific sections like apparel, but also a good range across the board whether that be clubs, balls, bags, shoes, accessories and so on. This is important because when gifting the card, you want to know that the person can buy whatever they want or need on the retailer you picked.
Additionally is the retailer golf specific? Because we have included gift cards from Amazon, Walmart and Decathlon, all of which offer lots of different products inside and outside the world of golf.
Of course have a think about how much you want the gift card to be and obviously choose a retailer that offers lots of different gift cards so you are covered regardless of price point.
What do you get someone obsessed with golf?
We have found this to be a very common question and there are several ways to answer it. For a start, it would be wise to ask the person what they would like because this is a sure fire way to get them what they want. However if you are very unsure, a good way of solving this issue is to invest in a gift card or voucher at a golf retailer. This shows you know they love their golf and yet you are giving them the opportunity to pick out anything they want from that store or retailer.
Which gift card is the most popular?
From a golf perspective we have found that Amazon gift cards prove very popular because of the choice on the website, and the ability to pick something from outside of the golf world. Walmart is the same really. In terms of specific golf retailers, Scottsdale Golf and Rock Bottom Golf both offer a wide range of cards and have a lot of stock from clubs, to bags, to accessories.
We hope you enjoyed this guide on the best golf gift cards.
