Top 10 Holiday Gift Ideas For Golfers - 2012

November and December is normally not the time of year most people think about golf equipment as most of us in the northern states have our gear stored away until spring. But if you have golfers on your holiday list then believe me they are still thinking about golf and contemplating their next purchase and counting down the days until they can tee it up again.

Now if you are tasked with buying a gift for someone that is a golfer then you are in luck. We have compiled this list of The Top 10 Holiday Gift Ideas For Golfer that will help you with your purchase decision. This list was developed by golfers for golfers with a lot of experience in giving and receiving some great and some "not-so-great" gifts.

1.  Golf GPS Devices - Price Range $100 - $300

Golfers are also technogeeks. We deal with numbers in golf whether it be yardages or scores or averages or handicaps. There no better way to satisfy our love of golf and electronic gizmos than to have one of these new Golf GPS devices. The devices use GPS satellite signals to give the golfer an accurate yardage to the golf hole or to any of the hazards on the course such as bunkers or water. No longer does the golfer have to search around the ground to find the yardages on a hidden sprinkler head.The newer models combine GPS yardages with score keeping and the tracking of golfing statistics such as greens in regulation and number of putts per round and fairways hit.

Here are some of the most popular GPS Units for 2012:
Although we sometimes hate to admit it but golfers always need new golf balls.  Now this doesn't mean we suck at golf and are always losing the balls.  It also could mean that we so good that like the pros we only want to use a ball for a certain number of holes before they gets "damaged" and start using a new ball.  Either way we seem to go through a lot of balls in a golf season and new balls are always a great gift.  Also, with the new balls coming out on the market, golfers can benefit from extra distance and extra spin. 

Here are some of the most popular golf balls for 2012:

3.  Golf Practice and Training Aids - Price Range $10 - $100

When not playing golf, we are either thinking about golf or practicing golf. We are always looking for that special training aid that will correct all the swing issues we have. Today there are golf training aids in all shapes and sizes that claim to correct anything from a slice or a hook and add distance and accuracy.

Here are some of the most popular golf practice and training aids for 2012:

4.  Drivers - Price Range $150 - $400

Ask a golfer what their favorite club is in their bag and most would say their driver. Also ask what club would you most like to replace and you would probably get the same answer. Out of any club in the bag, the driver is the most loved and hated. It also is the club that contains the most technology and can effect your golf game the most. Every golfer wants to add distance to their shots and the latest drivers are made to be easier to hit with larger sweet spots and lighter weight which all adds up to more driving distances.

Here are some of the most popular drivers for 2012:

5.  Wedges - Price Range $50 - $130

Wedges are the one piece of golf equipment that you actually need to replace often.  Yes it is nice to get the latest driver or fairway wood for improved technology but with wedges, the grooves wear down with use and they need to be replaced more often.  Wedges are called the "scoring clubs" because they are normally used for delicate shots around the green that if done well normally have a significant impact on lowering  a golf score.  At least that is how I justify getting new wedges almost every season!

Here are some of the most popular wedges for 2012:

6.  Golf Rangefinders - Price Range $200 - $500

Yes they are pricey but ask any serious golfer what is on their wish list and you're likely to hear golf rangefinder.  These devices  are even more accurate than the Golf GPS devices. A rangefinder is a bicocular type device that you look through to obtain accurate distance readings. Rangefinders use a laser to calculate yardages and unlike the GPS devices which give you limited waypoints for yardages, you can pretty much aim at anything within 300 yards and get accurate yardage listings. Most golf professionals use rangefinders in calculating yardages because of their accuracy.

Here are some of the most popular rangefinders for 2012:

7. Putters - Price Range $50 - $300

After the driver, the putter the second most "upgraded" club. Golfers are always looking for that special putter that just feels comfortable and gives them confidence to knock every putt in from within 20 feet. Unlike drivers, putters are usually more affordable so golfers will experiment with several models before choosing one that will make the cut and enter their golf bag.  Remember "Drive for show but Putt for dough!"

Here are some of the most popular putters for 2012:

8. Golf Shoes - Price Range $50 - $200

These are not your dad's golf shoes anymore.  No longer are golf shoes big, bulky and ugly looking. The latest golf shoes not only have technology to keep the golfer stable during the golf swing but also are comfortable and look cool. Some of the newest shoes look so good and are so comfortable that you wish you could wear them off the course too.

Here are some of the most popular golf shoes for 2012:

9. Golf Gifts - Price Range $10 - $150

Golfer like to fill their house with golf related items. One of the top golf related gifts is a ball display case were the proud golfer can display the golf balls used to make that hole-in-one or other special shot. Another cool gift is a golf flag frame where you can display a golf flag from your favorite course. 

Here are some of the most popular golf gifts for 2012:

10.  Golf Carts For Walking - Price Range $75 - $2,000

"Real" golfers prefer to walk the course rather than ride a power cart  When you walk a course you get the health benefit of walking 5-6 miles while at the same time being able to talk with your golfing buddies and concentrate on your next shot. For golfers that don't want to carry their bag 18 holes there are many bag carts to choose from ranging from ones that you can push or pull to ones that are electronically driven with a remote control.

Here are some of the most popular golf carts for 2012:
