WIth great t-shirts with slogans such as “My worst day of golf is still beats my best day at work” in a gorgeous grey colour with pink writing, there are fun and natural t-shirts available for mum.
My favourite gift for dad is the “Golfer’s Heartbeat” t-shirt. Fun, natural and available in a variety of different colours, you can’t go wrong.
For the kids there is loads of choice – whether you want a t-shirt with a slogan that says “Daddy is my caddy” or the one I’ve featured here which is the “Fore” t-shirt with a golf ball picture over a smashed glass picture. It’s fun and fresh and any young golf fan would love it.
For any golf fan, there are fun, natural, renewable and organic t-shirts in a range designs.
For any friend or relative not yet into golf what do you do if you want to introduce them to the other “Beautiful game”? Well start small – why not introduce them to a really informal and smaller scale version of the game? You can start with mini golf, a putting green, a driving range or even a golf games centre like Top Golf where you can play as though you are at a driving range but the range tracks the balls and you score points – meaning it can be more fun and easier to track your progress. You can usually get food and drinks at these places meaning they can make for a fun night out. There are all cheap to attend and require minimal or no equipment in advance. You can visit for just a short time and introduce your friends slowly.
A lot of driving ranges are able to offer lessons – whether group or individual so if they decide they like it and they want to improve their skills, they could try them. Individual lessons tend to be more expensive, and in fact some places offer group lessons either subsidised or free in order to help people get in to the game and try it out. Just search online for your local centre and see what is offered in your area.
If they get a feel for the game – and they almost certainly will, you could progress on to pitch and putt. Pitch and putt is golf on a smaller scale. The holes tend to have a distance of about 90 metres and you only need three clubs (one of which must be a putter) instead of a full set. A typical pitch and putt course can be played in around 1.5 hours instead of 4-5 of a normal full size golf course. It also tends to be a lot cheaper and you can avoid membership and green fees in a lot of places due to the less formal nature of the game.
However you introduce your friends to the game, as long as you enjoy what you are doing then that is all that matters. Once they get into the game, you can start buying them fun golf t-shirts and gifts too
