Being a golfer around the holidays can be feast or famine.
If surrounded by fellow golfers in your gift-giving circle, then you’re likely to get a practical and useful gift, but if you’re a lone golf wolf among your family and friends, you’re liable to get a well-intentioned albeit less-useful golf-related gift.
While most gifts are given with the best of intentions, there are always some that turn out to be unintentionally hilarious, which says about as much about the gift giver as it does the golf industry that makes these gifts available in the first place.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the worst golf gifts given this holiday season as submitted to the guys at No Laying Up.
The annual "unusable golf gift from your non-golfer relative" pictures. Send ‘em in and we’ll share the best ones.
