Here’s a collection of Father’s Day gift ideas with something for every golfer from the once-a-month duffer to the every-day-playah.
Pushcarts are the word of the day as more courses adopt riding cart restrictions and suspend caddie service. The coolest pushcart on the market today is the Cape from Walker Trolleys, which draws inspiration from ultra-cool roadsters and bikes from the roaring twenties. The Cape is made from premium aluminum, waxed canvas and handcrafted leather. A convenient one-fold handle makes collapsing and unfolding the trolley easy as the central hub enables the handle and legs to each bend on their separate axis, allowing for a compact fold. Available at Walker Trolleys for $399.
Every walking golfer needs a good pair of shoes—or two or three. ECCO Golf’s S-THREE hybrid golf shoe is the latest innovation from this leading footwear company. Available for both men and women, the S-THREE uses special technology to create a molded midsole with three distinct zones of softness to ensure the right balance of cushioning and stability exactly where golfers need it most. The shoe’s uppers are crafted from Nappa leather made in ECCO’s own tanneries, with 100% waterproof GORE-TEX® technology that keeps feet dry and comfortable in all conditions. They sit atop the ECCO DYNAMIC TRACTION SYSTEM™ outsole, providing more than 100 traction bars and 800 traction angles for excellent grip. $200 at Ecco.
Into every golfer’s life a little rain must fall, so the innovators at Sun Mountain applied their rainwear expertise to building truly waterproof golf bags, each constructed with waterproof fabric, taped seams, and waterproof zippers.
