Worst golf Christmas gifts


Recommended Posts

My suggestion would be not to use it for its intended purpose, but rather as a flask for you favorite beverage.

But what about the off chance someone used and returned it?

I got the potty putter thing last year from my sister, thankfully it was as a gag gift.   I also am the purchaser of something that should be on the list.  The GM of my course had been complaining a

If you can finish the flask, you may need to use it for its intended purpose. Then the question becomes: are you currently using it for option A or B? Hope you don't forget.

I can potentially understand this as a desperation purchase that a person might make for himself. As a gift for someone else? Not as a gag gift? Yikes  :huh:

I have gotten a couple of those, anyone else have any to add?

Honest to goodness, I've gotten all 5 over the years.  Numbers 1, 3 and 4 in triplicate!

 

But the worst was a set of tri-fold, monogrammed golf towels from my in-laws.  They were baby s*** brown with bright pink lettering.  I guess they were trying to tell me something.  Never used them as you can imagine!

Although I (thankfully) have not received it, I would think that the Potty Putter has to be on this list.

I got that as a gift one year as a gag. I could never read the break on that green though... 😂🤣😂😂

I have been lucky over the years. My family understands my golf obsession and stays away from golf gifts. My wife did get me a few nice putters over the years but she may have had some help from me on those.

My immediate family understands, gifting anything golf related requires a unique understanding of golf only the obsessed share.  As a result, they stay away.  They also know I will buy what I want anyway.  My gifts have all come from extended family like the idiot brother-in-law we all seem to have in common.  

 

To make matters worse, mine is in politics!  So, he thinks he knows everything about anything anyway.  He is 98% of the reason I hate holidays!

on that list...I received by itself, the ball grabber that you put on the grip of the putter.  Has to be the worst gift I have received though thoughful from my FIL.  I found it when cleaning out one of my golf boxes recently.  If any one is missing theirs from the product pack...LET ME KNOW!  :D

I've gotten all but the ball display rack..lol

 

 

I've gotten 1, 3 and 5. I'll add to that the cooler that holds 4 beers/sodas, the electric golf ball cleaner that's the size of the end of a baseball bat and those sunglasses that turns everything blue to find your ball in the rough... Which never worked for me.

I got those glasses too.....didn't work at all!

Last year I got a golf card game...with a puzzle course you had to put together. I'll take a picture of it if I can find it. Tried putting it together and none of the pieces fit and the cards didn't really make a ton of sense so into a closet somewhere it went!
