Good evening everyone! I figured I’d put my last few hours on earth to use (if you believe the doomsday folks) and expand my Christmas list a bit. Apparently, according to my wife and parents, I’m “difficult” to buy for. I’m pretty much set when it comes to golf stuff… the combination of my years of working in a golf shop and the minimal wear and tear on my equipment due to a total lack of playing leaves me in a position to not ask for much.
Like most guys, I’ve got my dream list of gifts. It’s fun being the guy with the nicest golf clubs or fanciest golf shoes but there are certain things that will make you truly stand out among your golfing peers. Over the past few months I’ve come across some pretty cool golf items and I think it’s time to add them to my list. Just in time for last minute shopping.
Want to impress that golfer on your list and win their love and affection for life? Check out these dream gifts…
XGOLF i2 Simulator
Golf simulators are nothing new but this one comes with all the extra bells and whistles… automatic ball feeder, weight sensors and a floor that automatically moves to match your lie. XGOLF has been around for over 12 years and have installed over 3000 simulators all around the world. Know someone with some extra room in the basement or an extra wing they’re not using? This would fit nicely.
Garia Golf Car
Most golf carts are functional but a bit boring. Extra cup holders and GPS units are nice touches but they don’t compare to a refrigerator, interior lights and a heated windshield (with wiper). Head to the company website and build and price your own car and then request a test drive. Don’t worry about quality.. these are built in Finland at the same factory that builds the Porsche Boxster and Cayman.
Pescador Golf Shoes
I’ll admit it.. I’m more of a casual golf shoe kinda guy but the thought of having a pair of sweet python kicks is pretty tempting. Pescador is manufacturer from Spain that specializes in made to measure golf shoes. You might be the worst player in the foursome but it you will be able to take comfort in knowing that your shoes are worth more than the entire bag of the guy next to you.
Well.. it’s just after midnight on December 21, 2012. I should probably head out to my fallout shelter and chow down on some canned pasta. Thanks for stopping by!
