There has never been a better time to be a gear-loving golfer. Most people hang onto a set of clubs for years, but then again, distance-seeking and curve-correcting technology being what it is, we’d be crazy not to pine for a new set of sticks under the tree this time around. And shopping for the golfers in our lives (including ourselves) has moved far beyond the requisite dozen golf balls, shirts, shoes and bags of tees (though we’ll take ’em all with a smile). In our 2018 Holiday Golf Guide Guide you’ll find gadgets to help us improve our games and have more fun. There’s apparel to help us look great and stay comfortable while chasing par, destinations that won’t into a stocking but will reside in our memories forever, and accessories that add color and joy to the game and activities surrounding it. So as 2018’s biggest giving season gets underway, go ahead and give yourself permission to dream of your best golf year yet — and the stuff that will help that dream come true.
