Holiday Golf Gift Ideas Under $50
The holiday season is about showing your appreciation for others, not spending the most money. In my previous post I suggested a handful of golf gifts for under $20. If you have a little extra change in your pocket and want to spend it, here are some gift ideas in the $50 price range.

Golf is not known as a "cheap" sport but I believe there is something for everyone at every price range. No matter how big or small the gift, it's the thought that counts and now you can spend a little and save a lot with these suggestions.
Five Golf Gift Ideas Under $50
- Socks: Socks? Are you kidding me? As a golfer who walks the majority of my rounds I can appreciate a good pair of shoes and socks. Normally I wouldn't spend much on my socks (close to $12 for 6 pairs at Marshalls) but the guys at Pro Compression offer socks ranging in price from $16-$45. If you're on your feet for 4-5 hours for golf, comfort is important so check these guys out.
- The Hydroflask: Golf Digest & Golf World featured this in their holiday gift list and it's one of my favorites. It comes in a variety of sizes, keeps liquids cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours. It's perfect to take with you on the course and keep your drink for the entire round. The New York Golf Center sells a 24oz. Hydroflask for $24.99.
- Golf Balls: No matter what golf ball you play it falls under the $50/dozen price range. Titleist ProV1 is widely considered the premier golf ball on the market. I've seen it as low as $39.99 but usually it costs closer to $46. I play Bridgestone B330s or Taylormade Penta's which run about $40/dozen. The Penta's are one sale buy 2 get 1 free in most places.
- Golf Umbrella: Sticking with the theme of every golfer needs one, the golf umbrella is a staple in every golfers trunk or bag during golf season. Since we're not smart enough to get a raincheck incredibly passionate about golf and won't leave the course if it's raining, the golf umbrella can give us the extra coverage we need to get through even the heaviest of rains. If you walk most of your rounds, this is a necessity.
- Photo Ball Marker: Those who know me know I am a sucker for anything custom. This is one of those things I've always wanted but can't decide what to put on it. If you want something unique, special and reasonably priced, this would make a great gift. I don't know of many companies who do this but I've connected with the people at PhotoBallMarker.com on Twitter (@PhotoBallMarker) and they seem like good people. It looks like prices range from $7.50 for one or $24.95 for a set of three & an accessory.
