Best Golf Gifts: Club package sets

Golf has enjoyed a massive boom over the last year with more and more people taking up the game or returning to the sport. While it can be an expensive hobby, many of the top brands now make superb package sets to ensure you can get everything you need in once purchase to get out and get playing.

We’ve picked out the best sets for juniors, beginners and even the more experienced golfers who’d just like to upgrade those second-hand clubs they’ve been using for years, with prices starting at just £159.

The TaylorMade RBZ Speedlite package is a great option for beginners to mid-handicappers.

TaylorMade RBZ Speedlite Steel Package Set

RRP £1,069 VIEW OFFER

TaylorMade’s RBZ range has been a hugely popular option for more than a decade now and this Speedlite variant is a great option for those starting out in the game, high handicappers and intermediates.

Forgiveness is certainly the theme that runs through the driver, 3-wood and two hybrids (#4 and #5). Plus their lightweight design will help those who need a bit of help generating clubhead speed.

You also get six irons (6-SW), a mallet putter and premium bag plus a set of headcovers and a two-year guarantee.

The Benross HTX package is one of the best Black Friday golf deals.

Benross HTX Package Set

RRP £599.00 | VIEW OFFER

Benross are renowned for their value-for-money products and this 16-piece set of clubs/bag is ideal for those starting out in the game.

It comes with driver, 3-wood, #4 hybrid and seven irons (5-PW) plus a mallet putter. Also includes a premium cart bag and vintage-style headcovers.

The woods have been designed to help high handicappers. Lightweight shafts – Benross has long been a maker of excellent golf shafts – and larger sweet spots should aid the transition from beginner to the mid-handicap range as long as you put in the hours.

Callaway XJ Junior golf clubs

Callaway XJ Junior Golf Package Set

RRP £369 | VIEW OFFER

Available for boys and girls, these Callaway clubs are designed for children between 54-61″ in height. There’s also a six-piece set available for girls between 47-53″.

Every aspect of the design is focused around helping kids generate the maximum speed to get the ball in the air and flying as far as possible. The shafts are lightweight and the driver features plenty of loft, which is helpful as kids can’t typically generate the same club head speed as fully grown adults.

The seven-piece set contains a driver, fairway wood, hybrid, 7-iron, 9-iron, sand wedge, and putter. A matching stand bag and headcovers for the woods are also included.

The MacGregor CG3000 golf package set is one of the best golf gifts.

MacGregor CG3000 Stand Bag Steel Package Set

RRP £299 | VIEW OFFER

MacGregor are one of the best-known names in golf having produced quality equipment since 1897.

This package set is an absolute bargain (a whole set + bag for far less than a premium driver!) and will have anyone who’s keen to start the game or upgrade their old clubs grinning from ear-to-ear on Christmas morning.

For the money you get a 460cc titanium matrix driver, fairway wood, hybrid, stainless steel irons from 6-SW and a mallet-style putter. Plus there’s a premium stand bag. All that’s missing is a box of balls, a glove and some tees (which you can pick up for less than £30) and you’re budding Rory McIlroy will be ready for the course.

Benross Aero Junior golf clubs

Benross Aero Junior Package Set

RRP £159 | VIEW OFFER

These Benross golf clubs are available for kids 43-49″ tall, 49-55″, and 55-61″. That means your child could move into the larger set(s) as they grow, without having to get used to a different set of clubs.

The set contains a driver, hybrid, 7-iron, pitching wedge and half-mallet style putter. The carry bag is included, along with matching headcovers for the woods and putter.

Best Golf Gifts: Drivers

A new driver will be top of most golfer’s wish lists, but before splashing the cash it’s important to find out if your loved one has a preference in terms of brand and model. We’d also always recommend that players get fitted for their golf clubs to ensure they are getting a club that is ideally suited to their game.

Rather than spending your money on a club that then stays in the bag or ends up being sold to Golfbidder in six months we’d suggest having a conversation with the golfer in your life to find out exactly what they want. No, it won’t have the ‘surprise’ factor but at least you can ensure your money won’t have been wasted and they’ll have a big smile on their faces when they receive their gift.

You can find a few of our favourite new models below or head to our ‘Best Drivers’ guide and test for even more. And if you really don’t want to spoil the present surprise, you could always buy a gift voucher which lets your loved one go and choose exactly the right driver.

The TaylorMade SIM2 driver is one of the best golf gifts.

TaylorMade SIM2 driver

RRP £449 | VIEW OFFER

TaylorMade can lay claim to creating the whole high launch/low spin movement as their SLDR in 2013 was the first to pitch the concept to golfers. A 12% larger face than last year’s SIM puts a bigger area of the face at the maximum CT limit in the SIM2.

The new carbon sole and aluminium back ring add up to a 5% gain in MOI over the previous model, too. Expect 200-300 less spin than the TaylorMade SIM2 Max. Rory McIlroy’s driver of choice and what top-level golfer doesn’t want all that as a present.The Ping G425 driver is one of the best golf gifts.

Ping G425 Max driver

RRP £399 | VIEW OFFER

The American Golf website gives you the option to tailor it in terms of loft, style of shaft, flex, shaft length, grip and grip thickness. And who in their right mind wouldn’t like a G425 for Christmas?

When Today’s Golfer’s equipment review team tested it, by examining the difference between our pro’s fastest and slowest ball speeds, and his longest and shortest shots, we saw that the G425 Max gave the smallest carry distance drop-off (seven yards), which means it will be forgiving and consistent on the course. And every golfer wants a consistent drive! Read our full review, here.

The Honma T//World GS driver is one of the best golf gifts.

Honma T//World GS driver

RRP £399 VIEW OFFER

GS stands for ‘Gain Speed’, which gives away immediately how the GS is aimed at boosting mph for high handicappers/beginners. A sole slot and radially-weighted face structure help preserve ball speed for typical low face and high toe misses, which are the common misses for typical club golfers.

Leading golf companies have learned a thing or two over the last few years about how brands like Honma get draw drivers to perform in the hands of very average swing speed players. Read our full review, here.

The Honma T//World GS driver is one of the best golf gifts.

Benross Delta X driver

RRP £229 | VIEW OFFER

Benross are now owned by American Golf, which means there’s no margin for a manufacturer and bigger savings for the consumer. There’s no covering up how all our value drivers gave up ball speed and carry on the premium priced competition – we’re talking 16 yards for the Delta X against our very longest. But it’s important to remember that at more average speeds, those gaps will narrow.

The Delta X is a pretty good-looking driver. We like how the crown indentation focuses attention on the impact zone and how the head has a really friendly look at address. For its intended audience it will do a decent job and a great gift for those on a tight budget.

Best Golf Gifts: Fairway Woods/Hybrids

As with any golf club, we’d always recommend players get a custom fitting to ensure they get a model in the specs that ideally suit their game. While it might spoil the present surprise, we’d recommened talking to the golfer in your life to ensure they get the right club, rather than spending your hard-earned cash on a fairway wood or hybrid that isn’t used and ends up on eBay in six months.

You can find a few of our favourite new models below or head to our ‘Best Fairway Woods’ guide and ‘Best Hybrids’ guide for even more. And, if you’d rather keep the gift a surprise, you could always buy a golf gift voucher which lets your loved one go and choose exactly the right fairway wood or hybrid.

The Callaway Epic Max fairway wood is one of the best golf gifts.

Callaway Epic Max fairway wood

RRP £299 | VIEW OFFER

Just like the Callaway Epic drivers this year, we reckon nine out of ten golfers will prefer the head shape of the lower MOI Epic Speed fairway over the Epic Max. But, with our test data showing almost twice as much carry distance drop off (25 yards to 13 yards) on off-centre hits with the Epic Speed, the Epic Max is the model most Callaway fans should be playing.

At lower swing speeds, switching weight to the rear created an additional 600 RPM of backspin and an extra three yards of height, plus a steeper descent angle, helping keep shots in the air for longer to maximise carry distance (read our full review, here).

The TaylorMade SIM2 fairway wood is one of the best golf gifts.

TaylorMade SIM2 Max fairway wood

RRP £279 | VIEW OFFER

A brilliant performer, this fairway wood was rated the best when tested by Today’s Golfer this year (read our full review, here). In terms of speed, power and distance this is right at the top of the tree and it also rates highly in terms of forgiveness so would be a brilliant gift regardless of the standard of player.

That extra distance could make all the difference in terms of reaching a long par four or short par five in two for the average club golfer. Definitely money well spent.

The Srixon ZX hybrid is one of the best golf gifts.

Srixon ZX golf hybrid

RRP £229 | VIEW OFFER

Srixon woods and hybrids don’t get anywhere near the credit they deserve but, like the company’s forged ZX irons which have recently been spotted in the hands of Brooks Koepka, they’re really good.

The tiny head won’t be the best fit for golfers who spray shots all over the face, there’s bigger headed models that can help with that. But for reasonably consistent ball strikers the Srixon ZX hybrid is a beauty (read our full review, here).

This sort of head size is perfect for rifling through rough, nipping shots off the top of sand in a low lipped fairway bunker and, according to our data, it will get you out there alongside the best from tee, fairway and on a par 3.

The PXG 0211 hybrid is one of the best golf gifts.

PXG 0211 hybrid

RRP £199 | VIEW OFFER

PXG’s new lower-priced 0211 family has caught golfers – and the industry – off-guard. It’s an unexpected move that now repositions PXG products right among market-leading models, and for many golfers there’s now a serious decision to make between going mainstream or PXG in 2021.

The head has full face grooves which you don’t always get on hybrids and there’s a really friendly look, it’s also super easy to launch (read our full review, here). You should never buy hybrids based on distance alone, as they need to fill yardage gaps in your game, but by a single yard the PXG 0211 was our test pro’s longest hybrid of the year. A Christmas cracker and then some.

Best Golf Gifts: Irons and Wedges

More than any other part of a golfer’s arsenal, we’d definitely recommend that players get fitted for irons. If the golfer in your life has been dropping hints that they need a new set, have a conversation with them to find out exactly what they want. No, it won’t have the ‘surprise’ factor, but at least you can ensure your money won’t have been wasted.

You can find a few of our favourite new models below or head to our ‘Best Irons’ guide and ‘Best Wedges’ guide for even more. And if you really don’t want to spoil the present surprise, you could always give your loved on a gift voucher so they can choose the right club.

The Callaway Apex MB irons are one of the best golf gifts.

Callaway Apex MB bladed irons

RRP £942 | VIEW OFFER

Give 10 players the opportunity to design their dream muscleback iron and eight or nine of them will come up with the new Apex MB. And we say that because so many top-level golfers love straight and true top lines and leading edges.

Blades are utterly subjective as one man’s pleasure is another man’s poison, but for us the Callaway Apex MB is the blade of the year as it’s absolutely gorgeous (read our full review, here). If you’re completely brand agnostic you will not find a better looking blade than the Apex MB in 2021.

The Cobra King RadSpeed irons are one of the best golf gifts.

Cobra King Radspeed irons

RRP £749 | VIEW OFFER

If your game needs the forgiveness and power of a mid-handicap iron, but your fancy isn’t tickled by going forged, the Cobra King RadSpeed irons are a very solid choice (read our full review, here) and won’t break the bank. We love how Cobra’s engineers have built in an MOI-enhancing toe screw which draws the sweetspot towards the centre of the RADSPEED’s face, which also improves feel in this cracking iron.

The Titleist Vokey SM8 wedge is one of the best golf gifts.

Titleist Vokey Design SM8 wedge

RRP £160 | VIEW OFFER

The Titleist Vokey SM8 wedges are an excellent tour-level blade style wedge, and they’re just as popular today as they have been for the last 20 years. For the first time, Titleist Vokey have really focused all of their attention on forgiveness, adding tungsten toe weights to the SM8 wedges to increase MOI by 7%.

We’ve tested the Titleist Vokey SM8 wedges a few times now (read our full review, here) and they’re always well up any ranking we’ve compiled for spin and control, not just from perfect lies, but also from rough and when hitting half shots, too. If you insist tour level blade wedges are the best option for your game, the Vokey SM8 wedges should definitely be pinging your radar.

The Cleveland RTX Zipcore wedge is one of the best golf gifts.

Cleveland RTX ZipCore wedge

RRP £139 | VIEW OFFER

When Cleveland revealed the RTX ZipCore last year they shouted loud and clear about how a new lightweight aluminium pad in the heel (which meant there could be extra toe weighting) had led to a 10% increase in vertical MOI stability. Cleveland said the idea was to improve spin consistency between shots hit high and low on the face, which increases predictability on the golf course.

As part of our test, we thought we’d delve deep into the data and crunch the numbers to find out just how much spin each wedge dropped between a pure strike and a mishit (read our full review, here).

Where some models ran to 2,000 RPM difference, the Cleveland RTX ZipCore was tied top of the pile (with the Ben Hogan Equalizer), dropping just 553 RPM between shots, which is a seriously impressive performance.

Best Golf Gifts: Putters

The feel of a putter is all-important to a golfer so this is another category where you really need to let your golfing loved one in on the secret (or subtly ease the information out of them over dinner). The short stick offers the greatest variety of choices and trying them out, under the supervision of a qualified professional, is definitely the way to go.

You can find a few of our favourite new models below or head to our ‘Best Putters’ guide for even more. And if you really don’t want to spoil the surprise, you could always buy a gift voucher which lets your loved one go and choose exactly the right putter to ensure they get the perfect present.

The Bettinardi Queen B 11 putter is one of the best golf gifts.

Bettinardi Queen B 11

RRP £399 | VIEW OFFER

Today, there’s more talk around the benefits of stability MOI putters than ever before, but there will always be a place, and an appreciative crowd, for beautifully well-made traditional blade and mallet putters. And if we’re talking beauty, the Bettinardi Queen B putter deserves to be right at the front of any conversation (read our full review, here).

For putting in the UK all year round, we really like how the whole Betterinardi Queen B series have slightly heavier heads and a firmer feel than the rest of Bettinardi’s range. The Bettinardi Queen B #11 is the perfect compact, toe hang mallet, and we love the crisp sharp appearance which you only get from CNC Milling every edge and surface.

Not easy to wrap but that’s the only downside to this as a gift.

The TaylorMade Spider EX putter is one of the best golf gifts.

TaylorMade Spider EX White

RRP £299 | VIEW OFFER

A putter that rated very highly when Today’s Golfer tested it in September (read our full review, here), TaylorMade’s Spider putters have played a huge roll in convincing tour pros to ditch their blade putters for more forgiving MOI and mallet style models over the last decade.The company has poured loads of time, effort, and know how into creating the Spider E.

As good as the design is, what’s really impressive is golfers now having three hosel options to choose from. It doesn’t matter if you have a straight, slight or strong arc putting stroke or if you prefer platinum, blue or navy colouring there’s a TaylorMade Spider EX out there to fit everyone’s eye.

The Odyssey 2-Ball Ten Tour Lined is one of the best golf gifts.

Odyssey 2-Ball Ten Tour Lined

RRP £299 | VIEW OFFER

It took No.1 Jon Rahm no time at all to make the switch from his trusted TaylorMade Spider putter to the new Odyssey 2-Ball Ten when he signed for Callaway at the start of the tear. The switch was never really in much doubt though. Not only did Rahm play and love an Odyssey 2-Ball in college, but he also got his hands on 32% more MOI performance (over the original 2-Ball) which effectively made the switch a complete no brainer.

The Odyssey 2-Ball Ten comes in three versions (2-Ball, 2-Ball Triple Track and 2-Ball Tour Lined), and we really like the simplicity of the Tour Lined model (a single black line runs across the two golf ball sized discs, just like lots of tour players request), as it sets up really nicely behind a single-alignment stripe golf ball. You can read our full review, here.

The Odyssey White Hot OG #5 putter is one of the best golf gifts.

Odyssey White Hot OG #5

RRP £199 | VIEW OFFER

One of the top performing putters of 2021 and one that won’t break the bank.

Incredibly 20 years after the original, over half the putters that Odyssey make for tour players are still requested with an original White Hot face insert. Even more remarkable is how the White Insert material is the same as the cover on Callaway’s Rule 35 golf ball.

With tour players being such big fans of White Hot it’s not that surprising Odyssey opted to bring the insert back, and team it up with six new models and a new stiffer and more stable Stroke Lab shaft. You can read our full review, here.

Best Golf Gifts: Golf Balls

A great go-to present for golfers because, as every amateur knows, you can’t have enough new golf balls. There are deals to be had for the following makes which will suit elite players (TP5 and Z-Star) while the AD333 are ideal for mid-handicap players. You’ll find even more brilliant deals in our complete guide to the best golf balls.

Customised Titleist golf balls are one of the best gifts for golfers.

Customised Titleist golf balls

RRP From £23 (per dozen balls) | VIEW OFFER

A great little added extra courtesy of Titleist which means you can have a bit of fun. For an extra £4 you can add a 51-character message across three lines and in five different colours on each of the 12 balls. Never a bad idea to consider… ‘Please can you return to A Golfer – 07777 777777’.  For an extra £8 you can put a message on both sides.

TaylorMade TP5 golf balls are one of the best gifts for golfers.

TaylorMade TP5/TP5x golf balls

RRP £49.99 (per dozen balls) | VIEW OFFER

TaylorMade’s five-layer approach to its elite-level tour balls gives more knobs and dials to tweak to tailor each ball to its target player. More tour players have switched back to the slightly firmer and faster TP5x for 2021, as there’s such a premium on speed and distance at the moment (full review, here).

When TaylorMade launched the TP5 in 2017, they spoke about choosing on the feel you prefer, rather than just looking at the comparison numbers between the two balls – it’s solid advice that’s still relevant today. The slightly softer TP5 has a little extra wedge and greenside spin (not full wedge shot spin), while the TP5x flies higher and is slightly longer with the driver and irons.

The yellow balls do show up better during the winter months so extra points gained for considering that important detail when buying a gift for a golfer.

Srixon Z-Star XV golf balls are one of the best gifts for golfers.

Srixon Z-Star XV golf balls

RRP £39.99 (per dozen balls) | VIEW OFFER

This ball performed well in Today’s Golfer’s own testing (full review, here) and if you can get a dozen of these for around £30, that represents a great purchase.

If you’re swinging the driver at 90mph+ (93mph is the club golfer average), you should be looking at the Srixon Z-Star golf ball. And as you approach 105mph+, the firmer Z-Star XV (the Z-Star is 90 compression where the Z-Star XV is 102) becomes the better option.

Hideki Matsuyama won the Masters this year with an XV and it’s the ball of choice of 2019 Open champion and Ryder cup star Shane Lowry. Good facts to know when you hand these over as a gift to your golf-know-it-all recipient.

Srixon AD333 golf balls are one of the best gifts for golfers.

Srixon AD333

RRP £26.99 (per dozen balls) | VIEW OFFER

For non-players, buying golf balls can seem like a pretty daunting prospect and it could be so easy to fall into the trap of being that well-meaning auntie or uncle who buys their precocious niece/nephew 50 lake balls because £8 seemed like a bit of a bargain. If in doubt you can’t go far wrong with a pack of AD333s, which has been held up as an excellent all-round value proposition for club golfers since hitting the market in 2006.

This year Srixon launched the ball’s 10th generation (full review, here) and it uses a lot of the tech you’ll find in the brand’s premium Z-Star balls and gives more distance and forgiveness than previous versions thanks to a slight reduction in compression and reformulated FastLayer Core.

Callaway Chrome Soft X golf balls are among the best Black Friday golf deals.

Callaway Chrome Soft X Golf Balls

RRP £39.99 | VIEW OFFER

Is the Callaway Chrome Soft X a good ball? Well, as you’ll know if you’ve read any of our ‘best’ guides this year, it was our golf ball of choice for all of our testing, so it certainly won’t be a bad choice of golf gift.

At £39.99 it’s a great value premium golf ball, played by some of the world’s best players (Jon RahmXander SchauffelePhil Mickelson). The four-layer X is optimised for swing speeds over 105mph and is Callaway’s most workable ball. If that’s not for you then the standard Chrome Soft, which works best for players at 100mph and below, is available for the same price.

Best Golf Gifts: Rangefinders, GPS devices and GPS watches

‘Distance to the hole?’ It’s the most asked question in the sport and now golfers can get exact answers within a tiny margin of error range. There are three types of device available and whether it’s the laser-based rangefinder or the slightly-less-accurate-but-much-more informative GPS option, there are plenty of excellent choices across a wide-price range.

If you want a multi-purpose golf present then a GPS watch is ideal, as it can help with your loved one’s game but be worn as a normal watch every day.

You can find more information (including a full buying guide and pros and cons of each) and deals in our guides to the best rangefinders and best golf GPS watches.

The Tag Heuer Connected Golf Edition watch is one of the best gifts for golfers.

TAG Heuer Connected Golf Edition

RRP £2,100 | VIEW OFFER

Ok, it’s big money, we know that. But for those with a passion for watches and golf, TAG Heuer’s stunning special edition GPS golf watch is a piece of kit to get the blood pumping. It’ll be the present they never forget receiving.

This is a highly effective on-course operator as well as a classic-looking TAG watch away from the course. You get 40,000 courses in stunning detail plus accelerometer and gyroscope functions.

It uses grade two titanium in the casing and has a special ceramic golf bezel. Also includes a pedometer, heart rate monitor and a ‘Golf Edition Box’ containing three TAG Heuer golf balls, 4 TAG Heuer tees, divot tools, divot tool and spare strap for your watch.

The Garmin Approach Z82 is one of the best gifts for golfers.

Garmin Approach Z82 Laser/GPS Rangefinder

RRP £579 | VIEW OFFER

The Garmin Approach Z82 features a fantastic range of features to justify the top-end price. The viewfinder displays a 2D, full colour course map, with yardages to the front, middle and back of the green, making the Garmin Approach Z80 like a rangefinder and GPS all in one.

It can even give you a yardage suggestion for your tee shots, which is a neat feature. It is also a great option for anyone who can’t decide between a golf rangefinder and a GPS, as it gives you the best of both worlds. No keen golfer wouldn’t want one of these as a gift.

The Garmin Approach S62 watch is one of the best gifts for golfers.

Garmin Approach S62 watch

RRP £479.99 | VIEW OFFER

The Garmin Approach S62 won’t be the golf watch for everyone, purely due to the price. But it is undeniably the best GPS golf watch money can buy and would be an amazing gift for any golfer. In fact it’s almost quicker to list the things it can’t do.

For starters, it is probably the most stylish golf watch available. It looks good enough to wear all the time, not just on the golf course. And you can do that, as the Garmin Approach S62 battery life will last up to a fortnight when you’re just using it as a normal watch. In golf mode, the Garmin S62 battery life is up to a staggering 20 hours, which is a lot longer any other comparable device.

If you’ve carved a shot way off into the woods and don’t even know where the green is anymore, or if you’re just playing a blind approach shot, the Garmin S62’s ‘PinPointer’ will act like a compass to point you directly towards the hole. The ‘Hazard View’ lets you quickly scroll through each hazard and get a yardage to the front and back, helping you decide whether to lay up or take on the carry distance.

It also collects stats. Pair it with the Garmin Golf app to get strokes gained information and lots more.  It can use this information to act as a caddie on your wrist, factoring in wind speed and direction to suggest a club based on the distance you typically hit with each of the clubs in your bag. Even if you prefer to pick clubs for yourself, the Approach S62 makes that easier, offering adjusted distances to allow for uphill and downhill shots, and for wind speed and direction.

There’s no doubt in our minds that this is one of the very best golf gifts out there.

The SkyCaddie SX550 GPS is one of the best golf gifts.

SkyCaddie SX550 GPS 

RRP £379.90 | VIEW OFFER

With the GPS leading lights going big on watches it is easy to forget the benefits of a hand-held device and this offering from SkyCaddie is definitely worth considering as a gift for golfers who like to play as many different courses as possible.

Critically SkyCaddie have a team of course walkers which means each of the 35,000 courses have been mapped by one of their own employees. Obviously with a hand-held device rather than a watch you get a much bigger screen to study as this 5.5” version is seriously impressive and the level of detail on each hole is fantastic.

The Shot Scope V3 is one of the best Black Friday golf deals.

Shot Scope V3 Smart GPS Golf Watch

RRP £209.99 | VIEW DEAL

If you’re a regular Today’s Golfer reader then you’ll know we’re huge fans of Shot Scope’s products and it’s amazing data captured forms the basis of a lot of our golf tips and instruction pieces.

It comes preloaded with more than 36,000 courses from across the globe, provides GPS distances to every green and hazard via its full colour screen, and gives automatic shot tracking for 100s of game improving statistics (including shots gained) compiled from the 16 included ‘tracking tags’.

One of the lightest golf watches on the market, it comes in four colours (black, grey, blue, red) and there are no additional costs or subscriptions.

The Shot Scope Pro L1 is one of the best golf gifts.

Shot Scope Pro L1 rangefinder

RRP £199 | VIEW OFFER

This is renowned golf GPS and shot-tracking brand Shot Scope’s first laser rangefinder, with the brand calling it “the most advanced product of its kind”.

Priced very reasonably, the Pro L1 is packed with technology including Target-Lock Vibration and a Precision Clear Lens. The vibration leaves players in no doubt that they’ve locked onto the flag and can trust the displayed yardage, while the lens lets you seamlessly switch between the laser’s black and red dual optics to ensure you can pick out your target in any light.

The sleek and sturdy Pro L1 also has Adaptive Slope technology which displays the angle of slope adjustment and a recalculated distance, accurate to just 3.6 inches. The feature can be easily switched off to ensure the laser conforms to the rules of golf in competitions, while measurements can be changed from yards to metres if preferred.

The Garmin Approach S10 GPS watch is one of the best golf gifts.

Garmin Approach S10 Lightweight GPS watch

RRP £139.99 | VIEW OFFER

Garmin’s GPS watches have become very popular in the golfing community and this hugely effective model is widely available for less than £100 now, representing fantastic value.

It looks great, comes preloaded with more than 41,000 courses and provides yardages to the front, back and middle of the green. For the majority of players, not interested in all the bells and whistles, this does all the distance-measuring required in one neat little package.

It’s also dead easy to use and a guaranteed gift hit this Christmas.

While equipment brings certain logistical problems, clothes are a different matter altogether. All you need are the right sizes and the sky’s the limit. No golfer has ever complained about having too many jumpers, polos or trousers, so they’re all a great Christmas golf present option.

The PuttOut Pressure Putt Trainer is a perfect gift for a golfer.

PuttOut Pressure Putt Trainer

RRP £15.99 | VIEW OFFER

The Pressure Putt Trainer can used on the practice green, with other mats or just on the carpet in your lounge and helps you master pace and line.

Designed to fold down to fit easily into your golf bag, it recreates the pressure you would feel during a competitive round of golf with a micro target that will only hold putts that are bang on line and perfectly paced. If you miss the micro target, the amount the ball rolls back towards you is the distance the ball would have travelled past the hole if it hadn’t been online. A very clever design from PuttOut and a bargain gift for the golfer in your life.

Available in white, orange and blue.

Still the book every golfer should read. Penick started out as a caddy at the turn of the 20th century and went on to work with many of the game’s greatest players. Throughout his life he carried a red notebook and recorded simple but practical examples of good ideas he either heard or came up with himself. The result of more than 50 years of coaching is this collection of teachings that are still as fundamentally sound as they ever were. And even if you don’t like the ideas you should love this book as an exercise in appreciating the history of golf. Always a great gift.

Commander in Cheat will be a welcome addition to any golfer's gift list.

Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump by Rick Reilly

RRP £10.99 | VIEW OFFER

It is a pretty skinny offering from the famous Sports Illustrated writer but well worth the money. Trump’s shameless antics on the course are the stuff of legend and if you thought you have seen some terrible sportsmanship in your time, you haven’t seen nothing yet. Difficult to know which is the very worst (or best story) but hitting the ball into the water and then claiming the ball of a junior playing partner, who had hit a brilliant shot at a tough par three, takes some beating.

Starting at the Belfry with Sam Torrance’s side recapturing the trophy after the disgrace of Brookline in 1999 and then finishing with the Miracle at Medinah, this would make a fabulous gift for any Ryder Cup fan. In between we had Bernhard Langer’s team-of-all-the talents destroying the USA in 2004 and two years later Ian Woosnam led an emotionally-charged victory at the K Club before it all went a bit wrong under Nick Faldo in 2008. However it was back in European hands after the drama of Celtic Manor. More than 12 hours of golf-watching bliss.

Seve: The Definitive Story Of A Golfing Genius DVD

It is impossible to hear enough Seve-related stories and this DVD does a pretty good job of encapsulating just what made him arguably the most charismatic sportsman in living memory. It includes contributions from Tiger Woods, Nick Faldo, Tom Watson, Gary Player, Colin Montgomerie and many others. Genius is perhaps the most over-used word when it comes to describing the status of sports stars but the five-time Major winner was unquestionably that. Utterly inspiring viewing.

The Legend of Bagger Vance DVD

RRP £5.49 | VIEW OFFER 

Once you’ve got over how annoyingly good Will Smith’s swing is (you just know he mastered golf in his lunch hour while filming  Men in Black), sit back and enjoy the best golf film ever made. Matt Damon stars as a one-time golf prodigy trying to rebuild his life and his swing after the Great War. However the guys playing Walter Hagen and Bobby Jones completely steal the show. Directed by Robert Redford, it manages to walk the fine line between disbelief and enchantment in masterly fashion.

Are you really a golfer if you haven't seen Tin Cup? It's a great gift idea.

You don’t get more 1990s than Kevin Costner and Rene Russo but put them together and you can’t go wrong. Any list of 100 Gifts for men has to include this film with washed-up golf pro Roy McAvoy (Costner) and long-time bitter rival David Simms (Don Johnson) going toe-to-toe, culminating at the US Open. The film is awash with cameos from real PGA Tour pros and it’s typical Hollywood fantasy but still a great watch.
