Golf Gear for Dad This Father’s Day

Father’s Day gifts he’ll want to sport at the course and beyond

By Suzanne S. Brown

Color and Comfort

Classics with a twist are the forte of Bristol, Tennessee-based Turtleson. The company’s 2024 golf and lifestyle collection includes the Collins polo, printed with a Tom Collins-inspired cocktail motif and is made of four-way stretch pique fabric, $115. Activewear pieces include the heathered fabric Wallace Hoodie, $150, and quick-dry Mitch trunks, $125.

Walking Shoes

Water and stain-resistant mesh are among the performance features of OluKai’s Ka’anapali lightweight golf shoes, while leather details add style, $150. The footbed is inspired by the feeling of bare feet in wet sand, and a unique feature is the drop-in heel, which transforms the shoe into a slip-in for ease after playing a round.

Golftini for Guys

After 19 years in the women’s golf apparel business, Golftini has introduced its first men’s collection. Company founder and SEO Susan Hess says she wanted to broaden the brand’s reach by entering the men’s market and will be donating a portion of each sale to the American Cancer Society and Pink Aid, among other charities. Included in the debut collection are such pieces as the martini polo, $100, striped sleeve sweater, $160, and shorts, $125.

Track your Shot

A smartwatch to measure distances on the course and capture data is many a golf fan’s favorite device. Shot Scope’s new V5 Golf Watch has a full-color screen readable in daylight and features maps on more than 36,000 preloaded golf courses. The watch offers access to more than 100 statistics to track your game and has no subscription fee, $250.

Drive & Determination

Few athletes have captured the public’s attention like Tiger Woods. In his new book on the golf legend, “Drive: The Lasting Legacy of Tiger Woods,” Bob Harig charts Woods’ impressive wins and the determination it took for him to come back after surgery to win the Masters in 2019, 22 years after his first win in Augusta, $30.
