So, you’re looking for a gift for a golfing enthusiast. Shouldn’t be too difficult, right? After all, golf is a game of, like, a million accessories.
But the problem is, people have been buying them golfing gear for years now. They have it all: buckets full of golf balls, more golf gloves than pairs of underwear, more umbrellas than Rhianna, and more tees than sense. So what’s next?
Easy. It’s time to bust out the gags.
At a Glance: The Best Golf Gag Gifts
Not only can these gifts be funny, quirky, and frankly ridiculous, but they can also be highly practical. So if you’re on the hunt for the perfect funny golf gift, look no further than these timeless golf gag gifts.
25 Gag Gifts for Golfers
1. Funny Golf Socks
If in doubt, buy them socks. Made from quality materials and available in a range of sizes, these Zmart socks will serve the wearer well both on and off the course. Of course, they are most effective when the feet are up – hopefully, the ‘SHHH… GOLF IS ON’ message will be received loud and clear by others present.
2. Novelties Hip Flask
Sure, this is technically a gag gift, but actually, it’s a highly practical stroke of genius.
The 6oz, stainless steel flask is complete with a stylish leather holder. It has a belt loop, four tee holders (tees included), two snap-off markers, and a divot tool. Marrying two of America’s favorite pastimes, this novelty hip flask is as fun as it is functional, and could be the perfect golfing gift.
We don’t recommend drinking on the golf course, but if you were ever wanting to get a head-start on the end-of-round festivities, this would be the way to do it.
3. Oji-Emoji Golf Balls
This is a particularly great golf gag gift for kids. But really, it can be for anyone. Who doesn’t love emojis?
Emojis and golf balls are a match made in heaven. Yellow balls can be easier to see, and they’ll be no mix-ups with ball identification when there’s a great big winking, laughing, or angered face looking up at you. With 12 unique emoji designs, this golf ball set is sure to bring a smile to the recipient.
Dibs on the poop emoji.
4. Golf Potty Putter Game Set
It’s a putting mat. That you can play whilst you sit on the toilet. Need we say more?
Well, we’re going to – this gag gift for golfers is too good to miss. The green measures 28 x 35 inches, extending approximately 25 inches away from the base of your porcelain throne. It includes a hole with a flag, a mini putter, and a ‘Do not disturb – golf in progress’ door hanger.
I did actually have a toilet pun prepared, but I’ve decided to flush it. Because this is no gag gift. This is for the SERIOUS golfer. If they want to get better at the game, they must eat, breathe, and **** golf. No more excuses.
5. Loftus Heads Down Golf Tees
Now, this product is shamelessly crude and may be seen as somewhat offensive to some. If so, we apologize for including it on this list.
But hear us out. These golf tees have actually been designed with a noble intention: to help the player keep their eyes on the ball. It’s perhaps the most important element of any golf swing, and if these novelty tees can’t help them get it right, then surely nothing can!
A fun golf gift for eyes that are prone to wandering.
6. Gopher Headcover
You might think that this headcover would make a great gag gift, but really, the joke’s on you, because this gopher is cute as hell, and anyone would be lucky to have him.
Adorability aside, the gopher does everything in its power to protect drivers from scratches and scuffs. It fits any 460cc drivers and looks simply sublime on any golf bag.
Go for gopher.
7. Nice Shot Golf Glove
Never before has offering compliments been so much fun. With this glove, you can maintain polite golfing etiquette with your playing partner whilst simultaneously expressing your disgust at that fairway splitting drive they just hit.
Better yet, this is actually a pretty high-quality, legitimate piece of kit. Individually hand-crafted with fine Cabretta leather, this glove offers adjustability, breathability, grip, and comfort.
You can never have too many golf gloves – this would be a fine and funny addition to any golfer’s collection.
8. Putt Cup Golf Mug
Introducing the Putt Cup golf mug… because sometimes, life just isn’t distracting enough!
This mug has a couple of important functions. Firstly, it’s a mug (shock). Then, we look at the flat side and see we can set it down to practice our putting.
For those who love golf as much as they love a cup of joe, there is surely no finer gift.
9. Clean Golf Balls Golf Towel
If you want to put a smile on your favorite golfer and know that he is a golfer that goes out to have a great outing on the golf course, take a look. For someone that enjoys standing out with golf apparel that does not quite fit into the accepted norm then this funny and, slightly suggestive Golf Towel would be an ideal gift.
The SHANKITGOLF Golf Towel is made from a high-quality suede microfiber material that can be used to clean your clubs and “balls”. It comes with a clip-to-clip sturdy attachment that fits onto the golf bag and won’t be damaged or break off while in the trunk of your car en route to the golf course. The size of the towel is 16 inches by 16 inches.
This Golf Towel is guaranteed to solicit some interesting comments from those playing with him and help to create a more relaxed atmosphere for the round of golf.
10. Crappy Golf Balls
For a crappy golfer. Or for a good golfer who’s getting a little too comfortable with their fancy Pro V1’s or their Z Star’s. Time to play some real golf. Rough, rugged, and sufficiently filthy, these crappy golf balls are sure to even the playing field.
The best part is, the user won’t feel bad at all about losing them – that’s how awful these balls are. Hand your buddy this funny golf gift at the tee, and let the laughs, quite literally, roll out.
Zero game improvement guaranteed.
12. Shanker Golf Exploding Balls
If you thought shanks, tops, and fat shots were bad, wait till you hit an exploding golf shot.
Well, with regular golf balls, that will (probably) never happen. But with these novelty exploding balls, your unsuspecting golfing buddy could be in for one hell of a surprise.
Truth be told, from the look and feel of these balls, it would be pretty hard not to notice that something was amiss – the ‘Catastrophic’ logo is a particular giveaway. Nevertheless, these make for a fun golf gift and are completely safe (they just kind of pop apart into a cloud of white smoke on impact).
14. MySack Golf Ball Storage Bag
Next up on our list of great golf gag gifts is the MySack Golf Ball storage bag. Some traditionalists at the Country Club may tell you to get your head out of the gutter, but it is a practical present.
The suede sack features storage for two golf balls to save you from digging in your bag every time you donate one to the Golfing Gods.
15. Kofull Bikini Women Golf Tees
If the Kofull Bikini Women tees don’t help to keep your head down, nothing will. Tee up your ball on the head of these plastic Goddesses.
Although Kofull claims that these tees reduce side spin and friction to promote straighter, higher tee shots, they are best enjoyed as the novelty item they are.
16. UroClub Portable Urinal [Currently Out of Stock, Will Update Soon]
Besides hilarious golf gag gifts, I also enjoy practicality. This is where the UroClub Portable Urinal comes in.
We have all been there, desperate for the restroom, but none are in sight, nor are any bushes. The UroClub Portable Urinal allows you to relieve yourself in broad daylight without anyone suspecting a thing.
The urinal cup is disguised by a golf club, allowing you to unscrew the cap, handle your business, and close it up. While your friends will pee themselves laughing, you will continue to enjoy your round and remain comfortable.
17. Unofa Hide Your Beverage Sleeve
Golf is a social sport, and you should enjoy every minute on the course. Do you enjoy knocking back a couple of cold lagers? But you are worried about being judged by your playing partners? Don’t stress. Now you can hide it with the Unofa Beverage Sleeve.
The Coca-Cola design conceals your mischief, allowing you to savor a brewski without any judgment.
18. Shanker Rude Trick Golf Balls
Have you ever bombed an incredible drive over the horizon, only to get to your ball and find that folks on the parallel fairway played your ball? I have, and it is infuriating. These Shanker Rude Trick Golf Balls will give the next person that tries to play your ball a piece of your mind.
The three-pack of balls features elegantly printed names such as Twat, Wanker, and Tosser.
19. GoSports Battleputt Game
Another fun but practical golf gag gift for the ultimate fanatics is the GoSports Battleputt Game.
The 11-inch putting mat is easy to roll out anywhere and allows you to take on friends and family in a hybrid game of golf and beer pong. Every time you sink a putt in your opponent’s hole, cover it up until none remain.
Furthermore, the set includes two putters and two balls to get you playing as soon as you take it out of the box.
20. BioSwiss Golf Ball Bandages
BioSwiss Golf Ball bandages are made for the true nerds of our game. Whenever you pick up a blister on your hands or feet during a round. Patch it up with these bandages.
They are more than just funky golf ball band-aids. They are flexible, breathable, and contain a non-stick pad in the center, to allow you to apply cream to your wound.
21. YGMONER Broken Glass Car Window Sticker
We all have that uptight friend who panics about everything. Add to their stress with the YGMONER Broken Glass Car Window Sticker. The realistic design provides the appearance of a golf ball lodged into cracked glass.
Its versatile composition enables you to stick onto car windows, laptop screens, and even on the refrigerator. A word to the wise, don’t put it on a car if the glass or paint is baking because it will melt, leaving a permanent scar on your buddy’s ride.
22. Stinky Ass Hand Sanitizer
It looks like hand sanitizer. Feels like hand sanitizer, but it smells like a truck stop restroom.
The Stinky Ass Hand Sanitizer is the ideal golf gag gift to teach your playing partners to never leave their bottle of disinfectant at home. Plus, your playing partners will think twice before asking you for anything else.
A glance at the label will have your unsuspecting victim believe that they are receiving aloe scented gel. However, when they rub their hands together, they start smelling like a golfer’s butt after 18-holes.
23. Snugen Floating Golf Balls
Have you ever been to a driving range where you hit balls into the water, only to see them float? Well, the facilities use floating golf balls, and Snugen allows you to enjoy them as well.
If you know a golfer with a pool or a lakehouse, they will bring them hours of fun. Watch as they get a kick out of purposefully hitting balls into the drink. Admiring their flotation qualities.
24. Island Dogs Golf Door Stopper
Keep your door open with Island Dogs Golf Door Stopper that doubles as a putting training aid. When your door is closed and, you demand privacy. Pull out your putter and take aim at the cup.
It doesn’t come with a fancy putting mat, so your ball could roll anywhere, to help you master the art of reading lines.
25. Grilljoy Golf Club BBQ Set
After a tough day out on the course, nothing beats a BBQ and a few beers with friends. The Grilljoy Golf Club BBQ Set features a miniature golf bag to carry your utensils and a spatula shaped like a golf club.
If your friend or family member is a golf nut, they will appreciate one of the more practical golf gag gifts. It also gives you a laugh as your loved one practices their swing using the utensils when no one is looking. You can tell I am familiar with the practice.
Who needs a new pair of golf shoes, or a new sleeve of Titleist golf balls, or a new set of irons, or a new TaylorMade golf glove, when you could have… a farting golf ball!
There’s oodles of fun to be had with these gifts. And if your recipient doesn’t have much of a sense of humor… well, these gifts will be all the funnier.
