30 Best Golf Gifts of 2022: Something for Every Golfer!


Golfers are notoriously picky. What might be the best thing ever to one golfer might be considered worthless to another.

And if you yourself aren’t a golfer, the golf gift-buying process can very quickly become overwhelming. So many options. So much confusion.

In other words, buying golf gifts for golfers isn’t always simple.

Relax. We’re going to put your mind at ease with 30 sure-thing winners. Everything on this list has been vetted by golfers, each item selected as something seen as universally appealing.

But, as we said, golfers are a finicky breed. What if the gift you pick from this list doesn’t resonate with the golfer in your life?

That’s the beauty of buying from PlayBetter.com. You’ve got 60 days to return whatever you purchased (with a very few exceptions that are 30-day) with no questions asked. And, as always, PlayBetter customers enjoy free two-day shipping.

Let’s hook you up with our list of best golf gifts. Psst…You might even find something for yourself!


Best Golf Gifts Under $50

Bridgestone 2022 Tour B XS Tiger Woods Edition Golf Balls Price: $49.99

Developed collaboratively by Bridgestone Golf and Tiger Woods, this is the exact ball Tiger plays in competition. It’s a premium, tour-grade golf ball that includes Bridgestone’s proprietary REACTIV iQ technology. This ball is super fast off the clubface with full-swing shots, producing increased distance. Around the greens, the ball stays on the clubface longer to deliver more control, greater spin, and a softer feel.

Each Tour B XS-TW edition ball includes a “Tiger” stamp and is marked with the number “1”.

Golf ball choice is very personal. Maybe the golfer you give these to thinks Tiger Woods’ golf balls aren’t good enough for them (hmm…). No worries. At PlayBetter, you can return the balls hassle-free for up to 60 days!

Blue Tees Magnetic Strap: $40.00

This is the ultimate gift if your golfer owns a rangefinder that doesn’t include a magnetic mount. The Blue Tees Magnetic Strap quickly and easily wraps around whatever rangefinder your golfer owns. Equipped with advanced quad magnetic technology, it then securely locks onto any metal object, including a golf cart or clubface.

The Blue Tees Magnetic Strap is the most universal strap on the market, fitting more than 99% of rangefinders without obstructing the control buttons.

PlayBetter 500mAh Portable Charger: $15.00

Many of today’s golfers use some kind of tech as part of their rounds. And there’s no bigger bummer than running out of juice out on the course. Be it a golf watch, a handheld GPS, or a rangefinder, they all need to stay powered up to be of any use. The PlayBetter Portable Charger provides 500mAH capacity so that your favorite golfer can not only charge their golf electronics but also their smartphone and other devices.

For just $15, this lightweight charger should be in every golfer’s bag.

PlayBetter Club Brush: $5.00

This is the perfect small-gift option that every golfer needs. You can’t hit consistently accurate shots without clean clubfaces, including deep in the grooves. A clean clubface allows for better grip and spin-control on the ball.

This ergonomic tool is designed with soft rubber grips and dual nylon brush heads for gentle cleaning even when applying heavy scrubbing pressure.

PlayBetter Stiff Arm Golf Travel Protector: $20.00

This might be the most useful, simple tool a golfer could really use that they most likely don’t even know exists. The Stiff Arm is a fully adjustable, three-piece telescoping club protector that fits all golf travel bags. You simply adjust it so that it’s slightly longer than the longest club in your bag. The Stiff Arm then protects against any vertical force.

The nylon plastic head won’t damage your travel bag fabric. And the lightweight aluminum construction means you’re not adding a bunch of weight. The Stiff Arm disassembles easily for simple storage. There aren’t many more useful golf gifts than the Stiff Arm.

Stix Magnetic Golf Towel: $30.00

A highly functional golf towel is an awesome gift for any golfer! And this is a golf towel unlike any other. The Stix Magnetic Golf Towel includes an innovative silicone patch that allows you to snap it directly to your bag, magnetically attach it to a cart or clubhead, or use the carabiner wherever you want. And because the patch detaches, the magnet will not cause issues in the washer and dryer.

The large 23-inch x 16-inch towel is made from REPREVE™ recycled water bottle fabric in a textured waffle pattern designed to keep your gear clean. Each towel saves three plastic bottles from the landfill or ocean.

Stix Eco-Hybrid Golf Glove: $25.00

Give the gift of comfort! The designers at Stix decided that golfers shouldn’t have to suffer through a hot, sweaty glove hand while they played their rounds. So they developed the Eco-Hybrid Golf Glove, made with a premium Cabretta leather palm for grip and REPREVE™ stretchy performance mesh on the back. This is one of the most comfortable and best-performing gloves available.

Feel good about your giving! Each Eco-Hybrid glove saves about a half of a plastic bottle from the landfill or ocean by using recycled polyester.

Puma Golf Shoe Bag: $50.00

Traveling golfers understand the value of a golf shoe bag. For one, golf shoes are expensive. Keeping them protected is important. Secondly, those golf spikes don’t always play nice with other clothing if they are stuffed in the same suitcase. And finally, golf shoes can smell! Who wants to pack them next to their nice clothes?

The Puma Golf Shoe Bag features a two-way zip opening, an internal shoe divider, metal eyelets for perfect ventilation, and a convenient top carry handle.

Best Golf Gifts Under $200

Orange Whip Swing Trainer: $109.00

Year after year, the Orange Whip is one of the most teaching-pro-recommended swing aids available. It’s because it works for everybody. It’s designed to synchronize your golf swing and increase clubhead speed without sacrificing rhythm, timing, or balance.

There isn’t a golfer who wouldn’t benefit at least marginally from using the Orange Whip. Add in free two-day shipping from PlayBetter.com, and this is another one of those “buy with confidence” golf gifts.

Bushnell Wingman Golf GPS Speaker: $149.99

If the golfer you’re shopping for also loves music, this is a no-brainer! The Bushnell Wingman is not just a premium speaker, it’s also a GPS device that can deliver audible yardages on more than 36,000 preloaded courses when paired with the free Bushnell app.

The Wingman’s BITE magnetic cart mount provides golfers the convenience of having the speaker mounted right on the cart. The speaker also comes with a detachable remote so that you can control your tunes from a distance. And the long-lasting battery provides up to 10 hours on a charge.

Bushnell Phantom 2 Golf GPS Handheld: $129.99

This is a perfect and affordable gift for a golfer who might not yet have a GPS device or rangefinder. The Bushnell Phantom 2 provides all the most critical information—distances to front/middle/back, hazard and layup distances, and moveable pin placement—all in a handheld device that also includes a magnet for attaching to a cart or clubhead.

The Phantom 2 is also a great option for golfers who prefer or need a larger font. With this device, the numbers are large and easy to read, and the display is transflective to provide high visibility even in bright sunlight.

Stix Golf Stand Bag: $199.00

Stix is producing arguably the best complete golf club sets, with 14-, 11-, or 9-piece options available. But what many people may not realize is that the Stix, double-strap stand bag is available on its own. And while you might not normally think of an off-the-shelf complete set as coming with a bag worth owning, the Stix bag is a big-time exception.

This isn’t just a throw-in, afterthought golf bag. Instead, it’s a super-classy, understated, high performance bag that sells well on its own. It has a five-way club divider and two full-length inner dividers so that your clubs aren’t clanging around as you’re walking the course. Other features include water-resistant canvas construction, a rain hood, large pockets with protected zippers, a fleece-lined valuables pocket, and an insulated cooler pocket.

Best Golf Rangefinders

Bushnell Pro XE Golf Laser Rangefinder: $549.99

If you really like the golfer you’re shopping for, this is a gift that’s sure to impress. Bushnell has long been the leader in the rangefinder product class, and the Pro XE is their flagship rangefinder. You might get an argument that there are other rangefinders as good as the Pro XE, but nobody is going to try to tell you there’s anything definitely better. In other words, you give this gift, and the only way the recipient isn’t ecstatic is if they already have one. And, hey, if that happens, you’ve got 60 days to return it to PlayBetter.com hassle-free.

The Pro XE delivers slope-adjusted yardage, pinseeker technology with a visual jolt, 7x magnification for quick and easy focus on the target, waterproofing, a magnet to attach to your cart, and so much more.

Voice Caddie TL1 Golf Laser Rangefinder: $449.99

This is the fastest rangefinder available. It locks onto a target, gives an actual and slope-adjusted yardage, and delivers a confirming jolt all in no time flat. So if your golfer wants to brag about being the fastest gun in the west, this rangefinder is guaranteed to deliver.

The TL1 also delivers among the best rangefinder optics and build quality. And it’s designed to compensate for shaky hands or a moving target.

Precision Pro NX10 Golf Rangefinder with Slope: $279.99

Get pinpoint accuracy, slope adjustment, AND golf’s only fully customizable rangefinder for just $279.99! The Precision Pro NX10 allows you to add a customizable faceplate to your rangefinder. Favorite team? Company logo? Home course insignia? Get creative and show some of your personality on the course. You identify the logo, and Precision Pro can outfit you with interchangeable skins that slide on easily and are held in place by a magnet.

Performance-wise, the NX10 delivers incredible accuracy, speedy feedback, magnetic grip, excellent optics, and vibration confirmation when you hit the target.

Nikon COOLSHOT PROII STABILIZED Golf Laser Rangefinder: $449.95

As you might expect from a company known for cutting-edge camera lens technology, the Nikon Coolshot ProII Stabilized delivers the very best optics available in golf rangefinders. The OLED display on this thing is just crystal clear. It uses a brilliant 6x power monocular with Nikon’s innovative anti-glare and high-contrast coatings, plus a diopter adjustment for fine tuning.

And, as the name suggests, the Coolshot ProII Stabilized is designed to counteract shaky hands or moving targets. With most rangefinders, it can be tough to nail the target if your hands are a bit unsteady or the pin is moving in the wind. Not with this laser.

Best Golf Watches

Garmin Approach S62 Premium GPS Golf Smartwatch: $499.99

Absolutely jam-packed with features, the Garmin Approach S62 checks more on- and off-the-course boxes than any other golf GPS watch. This is the bar-none, top-of-the-line, premium golf watch. It wants for nothing, and it gets our nod for overall best golf watch.

For starters, the S62 includes a virtual caddie. It actually learns how far you hit each club and then uses that data to make recommendations out on the course. Beyond that, the S62 provides slope, wind speed and direction, a beautiful touchscreen display that allows you to pinch and swipe around each hole to find yardages to hazards and layup spots, a pin pointer that gives you a target on blind shots, swing tempo monitoring, plus fitness tracking metrics like a heart rate monitor, a pulse oxygen sensor, a step counter, a stress level monitor, and more.

Bushnell ION Elite GPS Golf Watch: $299.99

The first ever GPS golf watch with Elements Compensated Distances. That means that this watch will give you yardages that take into account slope, temperature, and pressure (altitude). The watch also gives you wind speed and direction. All on an easy-to-read color touchscreen display.

Other features include hole maps with shot planning and front/center/back distances; dynamic green mapping; moveable pin placement; PinTracker technology for lining up blind shots; more than 40,000 preloaded courses; scorekeeping with basic stats; shot distance calculator; and 12-plus hours of battery life. All for just $299.99, plus free 2-day shipping, and free 60-day returns at PlayBetter.com!

Shot Scope V3 Golf Watch: $219.99

The recipient of this watch will be able to track every shot they take on more than 36,000 courses, and it will cost you only $219.99! The way the Shot Scope system works is you screw tracking tags (the watch comes with 16 of them) into the butt of your golf club grips. After that, the watch tracks each shot, and the information is available for review on the Shot Scope online portal.

The watch delivers front/center/back yardages plus distances to all hazards. But the real differentiator is the shot-tracking capability.

Voice Caddie T9 Golf GPS Watch: $349.99

The Voice Caddie T9 is easily one of the best golf gifts available. That’s because the T9 does things no other golf watch can. Voice Caddie changed the game with accurate heat map, green undulation technology. Now, the T9 adds shot and putt tracking plus a swing tempo practice mode.

This watch is smart enough to know when you’ve taken a shot. With other golf watches, you have to manually enter your score after each shot or at the end of the hole. The T9 handles that job for you, including on the putting green.

Best Golf Launch Monitors

Garmin Approach R10 Golf Launch Monitor & Indoor Simulator: $599.99

This is the most coveted golf launch monitor and indoor simulator on the market. Whoever you buy this little baby for is going to be very pleased! The Approach R10 delivers ball speed, launch angle, launch direction, clubhead speed, club path, backswing and downswing times, angles of attack, clubface angle, spin rate, spin axis, observed ball flight range, carry distance, total distance, smash factor, swing tempo, and apex height—all in a device that’s literally the size of a deck of cards.

A word to the wise: When you see this product in stock and available, grab it! The R10 is in such high demand that it’s been nearly impossible to keep in stock.

Garmin Approach G80 Handheld Golf GPS & Launch Monitor: $499.99

If the person you’re giving a golf gift to wants a launch monitor but isn’t necessarily the most tech-savvy, this is our recommendation for simplicity.

And while it may be simple to operate (and it is; unbox it, turn it on, set it 8 to 10 inches from the ball, and start hitting), it delivers plenty of useful data, including estimated carry distance, clubhead speed, ball speed, smash factor, tempo, more than 41,000 preloaded golf courses, touch targeting, green view, PinPointer for blind shots, PlaysLike distances, and a rechargeable battery life of up to 15 hours.

Swing Caddie SC300i Golf Launch Monitor: $499.99

The SC300i gives you incredibly accurate information about your swing and the distances you hit each club. It’s the most consistently, down-to-the-yard-accurate launch monitor for under $500 we’ve found.

Rapsodo Mobile Golf Launch Monitor: $499.99

The Rapsodo is an iPhone-compatible, portable launch monitor that can be set up and operational within 30 seconds of unboxing. It gives you loads of useful data, including distance, ball speed, club speed, smash factor, launch angle, and launch direction.

But coolest of all is that this launch monitor includes a built-in shot tracer. You know how when you watch golf on TV and the shot-tracer line shows you the exact ball flight of the player’s shot? Well, with the Rapsodo, you can give the golfer in your life their own shot tracer to see their own shots. That feature alone makes the Rapsodo a steal for under $500!

FlightScope Mevo Portable Golf Launch Monitor: $499.00

The perfect on-the-go personal golf launch monitor. Somehow a device that’s only 3.55 x 2.76 x 1.18 inches delivers every key metric any golfer could want, including distance, clubhead speed, smash factor, apex height, and more.

Sun Mountain 2023 ClubGlider Meridian Golf Travel Bag: $339.99
