The hottest golf gifts this holiday season

Published

on

Each year, as the leaves change and the air turns cold, GolfWRX staff gathers in front of a crackling fireplace, preferred beverages in hand, to deliberate as to what the year’s holiday gift guide will look like.

This year, after much discussion — and perhaps not surprisingly — we’ve decided to do something completely different than in the past. In previous guides, while we toyed with structures and the number of guides, we always attempted to bring you our suggestions for what you might want to buy for the golfers on your list. That is, what we thought they could want.

But what if we could tell you what the golfers on your list actually want? Which is to say, the products they are actually purchasing right now. Wouldn’t that make for a more joyful wrapping paper-tearing experience?

Enter our friends at 2nd Swing. We tasked the leaders in new and pre-owned equipment and gear retail with running the numbers to see what is flying off the shelves.

So, without further ado, here are the hottest golf gifts right now — with a focus on equipment, naturally.

The hottest golf gifts this holiday season

One of the top performers in Best Driver 2023 and Members Choice, it’s no surprise to see the Ping G430 Max is a big seller at 2nd Swing right now.

Callaway Paradym Driver

Recommended by our panel of fitters as a top choice for players with a swing speed between 95 and 105 mph, the Callaway Paradym is a popular pick.

A price reduction only makes the runaway winner of 2023 Members Choice: Wedges even more attractive.

As Club Junkie said in his review “the MLM is great for tracking your bag, distances, dispersion, and ball speed. Use it indoors into a net or on the range; the MLM has so many features.”

At GolfWRX, we are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment of the game in many ways.

It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball. It even allows us to share another thing we all love – buying and selling equipment.

Currently, in our GolfWRX buy/sell/trade (BST) forum, there is a listing for a Srixon Forged ZX-5 iron set.

From the seller: (@niznikd): “Srixon Forged ZX-5 Iron set. 4 iron through Pitching Wedge. KBS Tour Lite Shafts. Winn Grips. Fantastic condition, only used for two rounds. The 8 iron has seen a couple of range sessions so shows a little more usage but in great shape as well.”
