10 BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENTS FOR GOLFERS

With the festive season on the horizon, we’re all busy thinking about what to buy our loved ones. If yours are keen on golf, you may be looking for a themed gift. For some inspiration, we’ve put together a list of the 10 best Christmas presents for golfers, whatever their level, tastes or age. In short, something for every golfer in your life!

The beginner golfer

This definitely counts among the easiest Christmas presents for golfers since beginners need equipment, practice and tuition. In our list, we’ve gone with the latter because classes from a Pro make all the difference to the game, especially if you get in some good habits from day 1. So, this year give the newbie golfer some lessons at the Rio Real Academy. Find out more here.  

The perfectionist golfer

Golf is one difficult sport and very rarely turns out perfectly, even for the Pros. But if the golfer in your life has to get everything just so, we have the perfect gift. Buy them a Swing Caddie – a digital tool giving you all the analytics for every shot including the distance of hole, the speed you need for your swing and the speed of the ball. Perfect!

The young golfer

It’s never too young to start playing golf so the chances are that you’ve got a son or daughter, niece or nephew who’s hooked on the game. For their perfect Christmas present, bring a bit of fun to their rounds with an animal headcover. Maybe go for a Tiger so they can aspire to play like one of the greatest players ever or a Sergio García designed bull.  

The fan of the 19th

Does the golfer you know always rush to the 19th? Then their perfect gift present comes as the ideal complement to their favourite tipple. Buy them some golf ball ice cubes so that they can chill their celebratory drink with golf in their glass. This is one of our favourite fun Christmas presents for golfers.

The stylish golfer

If the golfer in your life loves to keep up with the latest trends in accessories and fashions, gift them something from the range in our Pro Shop. Here you’ll find the very latest in golfing gear, from caps to sweaters via sunglasses and shoes, we have something for everyone. 

The busy golfer

Love golf but don’t have not enough time to play? This problem affects many golfers so they’ll welcome this practical present. The Accelerator Pro Putting Green allows you to get in some practice anywhere anytime. In the office in between meetings or at home in the living room while watching Netflix.

The eco golfer

This year, we’ve all become more aware of protecting our environment and that too applies to golf. If the golfer in your life is an eco-warrier, give them a pack of bamboo golf tees. Practical, light to carry and most important of all, biodegradable.

The Pro golfer

Next, our Christmas presents for golfers comes to the Pro. They probably don’t need any of the previous gifts on this list, but they’ll love the Rio Real Amigo Card. Valid for a year, it offers plenty of golf for less for the keen golfer. Best of all? There’s one to suit everyone even the Pro golfer.

The golfer with everything

Got to the end of our list and there’s still nothing inspirational for the golfer who literally has it all? Then, this ultimate gift will be just perfect – an all-in-one golf cleaner. Complete with water spray, brush, groove cleaner and towels, the kit comes with everything to keep your golf gear in sparkling condition.

The non-golfer

Maybe they’re not so keen on golf after all or perhaps they just like to watch. In this case, gifting them a stay in the Rio Real Boutique Hotel is just perfect. Luxury relaxation with views of the greens from their private terrace, Marbella on the doorstep and of course, the chance to watch golf all day long. Book them a room at Rio Real Hotel now.
