Last minute golf gifts, Pacific Northwest style

Dec 18

With Christmas just a week away, I'm guessing that more than a few of you still need to buy a gift or two. I'm also guessing that there's a golfer on your list.
Don't buy another golf ball necktie or gimmicky tee. Don't get sucked in by all the email flooding your inbox offering great deals on random putters or clearance shirts. Get a cool, unique gift made in the Pacific Northwest.
One gift idea that you've likely seen online or in print are the high-end products from Seamus Golf (seamusgolf.com). Based on the Oregon Coast, not far from Bandon Dunes, Seamus Golf uses quality Pendleton wool to create headcovers in a variety of patterns and styles. 100% made in Oregon and they make a statement on your golf bag.
My next suggestion is from a company that wants to personalize your golf accessories. Photo Ball Marker (photoballmarker.com) lets you upload any photo you want and print it on a quality ball marker. Each order comes with your choice of accessory, like a hat clip or divot fixer. I found the Photo Ball Markers to be a great client gift in the past. Photo Ball Marker is a product from Eugene, Oregon.
Everyone, especially here in the Northwest, needs a good towel on their golf bag to keep those clubs and balls clean. Play Kleen towels (playkleen.com) are the best microfiber towels I've ever seen. They're durable, look great, come in a variety of color combinations, and are perfect for personalizing or sporting a company logo. Play Kleen is based in Seattle, Washington.
Last, but not least, is a unique training aid from the golf coach at Seattle's Ballard High School. Casey McMullin developed the Swing Whistle (swingwhistle.com) to work as an auditory training aid that attaches to any golf club. It's small, compact, and really helps with rhythm and timing in the golf swing.
There are, of course, great golf gifts available from companies all over the United States. Share your regional gift ideas with me in the comments section below. Good luck with your last minute shopping!

In addition to owning Northwest Golf Adventures, I've been writing golf and travel articles since 2000. My main focus has always been golf in the Pacific Northwest, but I've had stories appear in association magazines across the country, several national publications and on radio and television. I'm always looking for great stories to write about!
