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 (opens in new tab), bags, shoes (opens in new tab), accessories (opens in new tab) 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.
