Even if Dad is an easy guy to please, finding the right gift for Father’s Day can be stressful. True, he’ll love whatever you buy him, but you want to ensure he gets something that will make his month. And if Dad’s a golfer, we’ve got you covered. Here are our picks from AmateurGolf.com for Father’s Day 2023. When he asks, “How did you know I wanted this?” don’t worry, you take all the credit.
FootJoy brought the goods in 2023 with a golf shoe lineup that is an A+ for men and women. Highlighting that lineup is the new FootJoy HyperFlex. Whether your dad has a traditional or modern design preference, this golf shoe will instantly be his favorite. While the HyperFlex has the stability and waterproof characteristics of a traditional golf shoe, its athletic build is a sleek new take on spikes. If your dad prefers to walk the course, he’ll appreciate the extra ankle padding and Ortholite® Impressions FitBed® which will help him get through 18 holes in a breeze. Available in three colors and with or without the incredibly popular BOA lacing system.
If Dad is using a driver that was made before you were born, the man is missing out on some serious technology. And even if he’s a golf tech nut, he’ll be eternally grateful if gets a Callaway Paradym driver. Ranked as one of the best big sticks of 2023, the Paradym driver packs some serious punch by adding some bug yardage to tee shots. Available as a standard model for low to mid-handicap players, there is also a Paradym X model which is intended for higher handicaps. This adjustable driver is available in head lofts of 9, 10.5, and 12 degrees with various shaft options to fit his specs.
Cobra Snakebite Wedge
When spending money on a new driver, golf balls, greens fees, and everything else for your game, it’s easy to overlook investing in new wedges. Instead, what if Dad is able to pitch it closer all because of a great Father’s Day gift? The new Snakebite wedges from Cobra Golf will be an instant hit with him because they perform around the green so well that he’ll feel like a pro. Available in three different grinds and seven different lofts, these Snakebite wedges can be finely tuned to properly gap the bottom of his golf bag. Added bonus: All Cobra clubs include an Arccos Smart Sensor so all of his upgraded greenside stats can be tracked along the way.
Nothing ruins a great golf outfit like an old, weathered belt. If your dad’s pants are being held up by a piece of leather that dates back to the Reagan administration, it’s time you treat him to a Nexbelt. While we love all Nexbelt offerings, we’re particularly fond of the Braided model which comes in 19 different colors and can easily be worn on or off the golf course. The beauty behind Nexbelt is the ratchet system design which eliminates belt holes altogether. He’ll ultimately get a more snug and secure fit to go along with designs that can be subtle or pop with color. Be forewarned that buying Dad his first Nexbelt can lead to many future purchases.
Big Max Blade IP Push Cart
Today more players are choosing to walk the golf course than ever before. And if your dad is one to forgo a riding cart he will appreciate the most functional push cart on the market. The Big Max Blade IP is an ultra-slim design that goes from tee to green with little effort but delivers maximum results. The Blade IP has Big Max’s patented Flat Golf Technology so getting it in and out of the trunk couldn’t be easier. For a lightweight push cart, it hauls all golf bags without the issue of it falling mid-round. With two foot breaks, an ergonomic handle, and numerous accessories to add on, Big Max does push carts like no other company.
Cobalt Q-6 Slope Rangefinder
If your dad is a serious golfer he needs a laser rangefinder. These devices have become an essential accessory to millions of players and we’re partial to the Cobalt Q-6 Slope because of its accuracy and durability. With a fully adjustable diopter, the Q-6 Slope is also waterproof and easily withstands typical use around the course. The display is crystal clear and the unit vibrates when the target has been locked on so there’s no mistaking the flag for other objects surrounding the green. GPS units and watches aren’t always the most accurate, but this handy laser unit is sure to provide quick, accurate
