Here are some of the best gifts for golfers under $50.
Arguably the most bought golf gift in the history of golf. I doubt if there’s a golfer anywhere that hasn’t had golf balls as a present at one time or another.
If possible check their preferred make and model before committing to a purchase.
Titleist Pro V1 Golf Balls
Titleist Pro V1 golf balls are designed for serious golfers looking for high-performance balls. They feature a soft feel, low spin off the driver, and consistent flight. The Pro V1’s multi-component construction includes a soft compression ZG process core, an ionomeric casing layer, and a urethane elastomer cover. These features work together to provide excellent distance, control and durability. Whether you’re looking to improve your game or play at a high level, Titleist Pro V1 golf balls are a great choice.
Titleist Pro V1
Since its launch, this ball has been favored by tour players and good amateurs. It’s unlikely anyone would turn their noses up at these.
Srixon Z-Star Golf Balls
The Srixon Z-Star Golf Balls are a high-performance option for golfers looking for a combination of distance and control. They feature a 3-piece construction with a soft, low-compression inner core and a firmer outer core that work together to deliver a low spin off the driver while still providing maximum distance. The outer layer is made of a soft, spin skin coating that provides excellent feel and control around the greens. Additionally, the balls have a 338 Speed Dimple pattern that helps to reduce drag and increase lift for longer, straighter shots. Overall, the Srixon Z-Star Golf Balls are designed for golfers who want a balance of distance and control, and a soft feel on the greens.
Srixon Z Star
Offering similar levels of performance to the ProV1 but will save you $10-$15. You could then throw in a glove! Choose either the Z-star or the Z-star XV.
An up-and-coming ball at a price point that should allow you to buy two dozen!

Champkey Putting Mirror
A great tool for helping a golfer work on their putting.
PuttOut Pressure Putt Trainer
Can be used on the putting green at your club or at home on your putting mat or carpet. A great tool to help sharpen up your putting stroke.
Runytek Indoor Chipping Net
Small but oh so useful. A great little practice net for working on your game when the weather isn’t great. It’s very small so it will definitely sharpen your aim. I would advise you to use some lightweight indoor golf balls. Normal golf balls may prove to be a bit heavy for it. Plus you’re more likely to smash your stuff.
Thorza Golf Putting Mat
For those long winter nights when there’s no chance of playing real golf give them the gift of putting! For some other putting mat options check this rundown.

Why not get a shoe bag to match their favorite pair of shoes? Most manufacturers will produce a shoe bag. This particular model is from Footjoy.
GolfLogix Green Books
Tour-level mapping of greens available to the ordinary golfer. A bit pricey at 30 or $40 per course you can buy their home course if it is one that GolfLogix has mapped.
Golf Pride/David Leadbetter Grip Trainer
Two experts in their respective fields. They have created a training aid to help you master one of the most difficult parts of learning golf. The grip. If you know someone that is just starting out in golf then this could be a great gift to give them a solid foundation as they learn the game. As an added bonus it’s a pretty inexpensive gift too.
Golf Trunk Organizer
If you’re fed up with seeing golf equipment strewn throughout your loved ones’ car then you could get them one of these organizers to help keep things tidy.
Mizuno Double Canopy Umbrella
The only thing worse than rain on a golf course is finding out that your brolly has blown inside out! A double canopy umbrella should solve that problem for them.

PGA 2K21 for PC
Arguably the best PC golf game at the moment although EA Sports is releasing a new version of PGA Tour Golf in 2022 which includes all the major championships including the Masters Tournament.
If your loved one can’t make it to the course because of the weather then a quick 18 holes on PGA 2K21 might satiate their golfing needs.
I haven’t included any golfing apparel as it’s pretty difficult to find many items that will be less than $50. Golf polo shirts are well over the limit unless you are looking at cheaper brands or discounted models. Golf shoes can also be difficult to find for less than $50 unless you stick to less well-known brands.
Again it’s a struggle to find even used clubs for such a small budget and do you really want to give someone a used golf club?
You could just buy them a pack of wooden tees if you are short of cash. Better yet, if they are a bit of a collector see if you can get hold of a commemorative pack from a top golf course they have played with logoed golf tees, ball markers, etc.
So there you have it a list of gifts costing no more than $50 that you shouldn’t be embarrassed to give. The only question is which one are you sending me?
If you have a bit more to spend and you’d like to get them something useful then you could invest in a pair of good quality sunglasses. I need prescription lenses so I opted for Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ.
If you are looking for a gift for a beginner then these ideas might be helpful.
