It’s that time of year again, and LuxeGetaways wanted to highlight a few of our favorite things for the golfer in your life when wrapping up your Holiday shopping this season. From fashion to equipment, this 2022 holiday golf gift guide has you covered.
Walking golf shoe brand TRUE linkswear introduced its Future Staples line this season with the debut of the FS-01. Featuring a timeless, minimalist style with what the company describes as “hidden technology,” the FS-01 is hitting the ground running with six colorways in men’s sizes 7-15 and women’s 5.5-12. TRUE’s Future Staples line is inspired by classic sneaker looks infused with the company’s legendary technology. If you need a pair of TRUEs ASAP, the Original 1.2s are optimized for winter golf – super supportive and fully waterproof.
MSRP: $175 (FS-01), $170 (Original 1.2)
Winter is prime golf hoodie season, and no brand does hoodies quite like Seattle-based RADMOR Golf. The Higgins Bobrad Loop Terry Hoodie is made from 100% sustainable cotton and features an athletic fit and range of motion stitching that allows golfers to swing freely. It’s offered in six colors, including classics like Navy and Heather Grey, and sizes small through XXL. Pair your Higgins Hoodie with a pair of RADMOR’s Five-O Knit Performance Pants, the closest thing to wearing pajamas on the course.
MSRP: $120 (Higgins), $128 (Five-O)
The 2022 ELIXR from OnCore provides golfers with perimeter weighting for greater accuracy and reduced side spin off the driver. A unique polybutadiene core delivers an outstanding coefficient of restitution (CoR) for higher ball speed, resulting in more carry and roll. A slightly firmer cover with a 350-dimple pattern and mid-compression rating (85) delivers a pure feel off the club face and gives the ELIXR superior greenside control, durability and unmatched performance in its category. Golfers should also be on the lookout for the new VERO X2, dropping this fall. This four-piece Tour-level offering is a follow-up to the wildly popular VERO X1, which topped several big names in launch monitor and on-course testing.
MSRP: $29.99 per dozen (ELIXR), $50 (VERO X2)
PXG’s Sugar Daddy II wedges are the brainchild of Mike Nicolette, the company’s director of product creation since 2013. Nicolette spent 24 years with PING and developed a relentless passion for wedge design. The Sugar Daddy IIs feature 100% CNC-milled construction on top of a 3X forged base, making them one of the most beautifully wrought wedges on the market. Full-face groves and high-toe weighting combine with two grinds – BP and C – for soft or firm turf conditions.
The Tour V5 Patriot is Bushnell at its category-leading best. Easy to unbox, simple to start up and sporting a sleek-yet-powerful design that is sure to get more than a few looks from your playing partners. Aesthetics notwithstanding, avid golfers want two things out of their rangefinder: speed and accuracy. The Tour V5 delivers both in abundance.
Rogue ST Max D is designed for golfers who want maximum levels of forgiveness from their driver. It’s built for very high MOI, with a reduced face progression, and a more upright lie. Internal and external draw weighting have also been added, along with a generously stretched profile at address for maximum shot shape correction.
The CBX Zipcore is a cavity-back wedge that offers many of the same benefits of a player-improvement iron. Its decidedly larger profile delivers a high level of comfort as golfers set up for full, pitch and chip shots. The club’s ultra-wide sole helps the clubhead slide through the grass like a knife through butter and reduces both chunks and skulls, according to Cleveland.
MSRP: $149.99 – $159.99
Golf Forever has surged to the head of the golf fitness class over the past two years, buoyed not only by Justin Leonard, Scottie Scheffler and Ryan Palmer’s involvement but also by its undeniable results. In 2022, the company rolled out its new Swing Trainer, taking the entire system to new heights by offering dozens of new warm-up routines and drills. The full kit includes a bevy of helpful stuff, all designed to make you a better, stronger golfer within a few weeks.
Sun Mountain’s PX3 and PX4 push carts have made a big splash with members of #pushcartmafia. Offering improvements on the company’s past Pathfinder models, PX3 and PX4 feature advancements like a new handle and accessory tray while retaining the main benefits of smaller folded size and easy opening. Both models include a continuous handle for pushing with one hand, an accessory console, a mobile phone holder with a slot for a charging plug, dual umbrella holders, and a mesh basket and velour-lined pouch for additional storage.
MSRP: PX3 $249, PX4 $259.
Technology isn’t just reserved for smartphones and wearable GPS devices. PuttView’s yardage and greens maps have become staples for serious golfers of all skill levels, and the upstart company continues to improve upon the original each year. Tournament organizers relish PuttView’s new Event Books, which are customizable for charitable events and other outings.
MSRP: $49.99 (yardage + green map)
