Shooting your shot on the course has never been easier than with a Nikon Cool Shot GII rangefinder.

Maybe the person you’re shopping for is a more visual learner. Perhaps they’d like to see an overview of the hole and gather yardages as they make their way through the round. The Garmin G30 provides just the solution. A compact handheld device that displays key yardages and a bird’s-eye layout of the hole, this pocket caddie is a clean and easy device that can help any golfer with their distances and deliver valuable feedback after each round.

Swing Caddie SC300i

SC300 Swing Caddie Portable Launch Monitor

This sweet piece of tech tracks everything but Santa’s sleigh. Is your partner spending hours on the range? Are they practicing inefficiently and showing up late for the piano recital? Whatever the cause, help them practice more effectively with a Swing Caddie SC300i. A launch monitor that calculates all the key metrics they’ll need to understand their swing, including ball speed, spin rate, launch angle and more, this gift is perfect for the serious golfer who seeks serious results. Knowledge is power, and few devices deliver as much knowledge as the Swing Caddie SC3001.

 Bushnell Wingman

Wingman GPS Speaker

Rock around the Christmas tree with a Bushnell Wingman. “Who brought the speaker?” is a question you wouldn’t have dreamt of hearing on a golf course 15 years ago. But times have changed and the tunes are loose on the links. If you’re shopping for someone whose love of golf and music are known to all, then look no further than the Bushnell Wingman speaker. Specifically designed for use on the course, Wingman’s BITE magnetic technology allows it to stick to your cart, while also delivering accurate yardages to the pin with its built-in GPS device. A caddie that also plays a 10-hour DJ set off one charge is worth hiring for your next round.
