What to consider when buying a funny golf gift

There are plenty of funny golf gifts on the market right now. But as there is so much to choose from, it can get a little overwhelming when trying to pick out the right gift for your playing partner, friend or family member. Here are our top tips on what to look out for in the best golf gifts.

1. Practicality

While funny golf gifts don't always need to be able to be used out on the course, sometimes the best gifts are those that perform a function and help the recipient in their daily life. From ball markers to pens, think about what the person needs and try to get them something they will use. 

2. Humour

Humour is everything in a funny golf gift, so think about the person you're buying the present for and try to make it as personal for them. Would they laugh if you bought them a Donald Trump golf mug, or would they find it funnier if you got them a glow-in-the-dark golf ball?

3. Budget

Some funny golf gifts can be pretty pricey, others meanwhile, can be very cheap. You might be able to pick up multiple gifts for a reasonable price. It's worth considering your budget when buying golf gifts as some can be quite expensive. 

4. Personalization

Getting an initial on a scorecard holder or a print on a set of golf balls always helps to make the present that little bit more personal for the recipient. Personalization can cost a little more, but for that you're adding more value to the present, and that may make it even more special or funnier if you're able to add a joke or funny message to the product you're purchasing. 

For more advice on great golf gifts you can buy for friends or loved ones, we've got plenty of options for you to browse in our guides on the best golf gifts, best golf gift cards, or our guide on best golf day gift ideas.


Can I use a novelty golf gift during a round of golf?

Yes! If the gift serves a purpose you should be able to use it on the golf course. For example, novelty tees, ball markers and even novelty golf balls can all be used on the golf course, provided you don't slow down play. 

What can I get someone who likes golf?

Well, depending on your relationship with them, there are plenty of golf gifts out there you can purchase for them, from novelty putting surfaces to golf themed office supplies. Find them something they can enjoy out on the course and something that will make them laugh. 

How much should I spend on a golf present?

That depends on your budget, but there are plenty of options at all pricing points. One thing to note is that a lot of novelty golf gifts can come at a reasonable price so you could get several novelty gifts for the price of something a little more expensive!
