6 Nike gift ideas for golfers
Shopping for a golfer who seems to have everything? Check out these six must-have gifts ready for a round of golf.
No matter how seasoned the golfer in your life is, you can find a gift that's useful and budget friendly. If you're not a golfer yourself, it can be tricky to know which gift ideas golfers will appreciate most on the course—aside from a golf ball and a set of golf clubs.
Here, Nike has rounded up the top golf gifts for players of all levels, whether you're shopping for a regular at the driving range, a friend who just started taking golf lessons and anyone in between. Check out Nike's golf gift ideas below to help the golfer in your life up their game.
1. Golf gloves
A well-fitting pair of golf gloves can make the difference between getting a good grip on the club and letting it slip during a swing, blowing a shot or adding a stroke. The soft leather on the palm of a Nike golf glove moulds to the hand, offering a tailored fit, secure grip and lasting durability.
They're designed with perforations and stretchy material zones to optimise breathability and flexibility, keeping hands comfortable during long days on the green.
If the golf lover in your life wants to hit the links but the weather isn't cooperating, they may need a pair of Nike cold-weather gloves instead. Plush, water-resistant fleece adds a layer of comfort, while synthetic suede at the palm allows for a sturdy grip and an overlapping closure at the wrist helps lock in warmth.
2. Golf hats
Golf caps, visors and beanies are versatile golf gifts that can fit nearly every taste, style and purpose. A golf hat is a functional accessory that golfers can wear to show off their unique style, whether that's a classic look or a statement piece with a unique design or pop of colour.
Plus, Nike hats are built for performance: they're comfortable, lightweight and breathable. A cap or visor helps provide sun protection for golfers, and Nike Dri-FIT styles have a sweat-wicking design to help keep their head dry and cool in hot weather. Features include adjustable closures, soft sweatbands and four-way stretch fabric.
For the golf lover who always braves the elements to finish a round, the cosy Nike Golf Beanie offers a layer of warmth. The Nike golf crest patch adds a bit of flair to the reversible design—a solid colour on one side and a houndstooth and checked design on the other.
3. Water bottle
A day on the golf course—especially one with higher temperatures and humidity—can take its toll, so it's important to stay hydrated before, during and after a round. A reusable Nike water bottle helps keep fluids cool and refreshing all day long.
For example, the Nike HyperCharge is a sleek 710ml (approx.) stainless steel chug bottle that's insulated to keep drinks cold and is easy to refill on the go. Nike water bottles come in a variety of sizes with straws, spouts and filters. You're sure to find one your golfer will reach for round after round.

4. Golf belt
To polish off a golf outfit, consider a slim belt that pulls any look together. Nike offers casual, stretchy, woven belts made from durable materials or man-made leather options for a classic vibe. Some styles are even reversible—offering two colour choices for more versatility.

5. Sweat-wicking golf socks
When it comes to keeping feet comfortable during a long day on the green—especially for those walking the course instead of riding the golf buggy—wearing the right socks is almost as important as wearing the right golf shoes. Nike Dri-FIT sweat-wicking golf socks offer lightweight comfort and cushioning to keep the feet dry and cool.
Opt for crew socks for more coverage, or go with no-show or quarter socks for a low-profile look. Styles with golf-specific designs, like a golf patch on the cuff of the Nike Multiplier Low Quarter Socks, show off a golf lover's passion for the game.
6. Golf bag
While a die-hard golfer may already have invested in a high-quality golf bag, this would be a great gift for a new golfer who needs a place to store their clubs, golf balls, gloves, tees, golf towel and other accessories that come with the sport. Nike offers an array of golf bags with features to make a round of golf more comfortable, including insulated pockets for cold beverages, a water-resistant hood to keep clubs dry and anatomically correct dual straps to help golfers feel more balanced while carrying their clubs.
If the golfer in your life tends to ride the golf buggy around the course, opt for a Nike golf bag with a strap-through design that makes it easy to secure to the buggy. While a golf bag comes at a higher price point than the other items on the list, you can keep it budget-friendly by making it a group gift.
