I clicked on a link to a top ten golf gifts for women the other day, and if you know me you know I love top ten lists! But as I scrolled through it, the only conclusion I took from it was there's a need to do a little more explaining on what makes a potential great gift for that awesome woman golfer you know.
Since golf has been a part of my life for over 25 years, and being a woman, I've observed that golf can mean lots of different things to different women. I'm thrilled that the market for women specific equipment, apparel, and accessories has expanded, there's a lot to look at! But great golf gifts come in all shapes, sizes, and prices so don't be blinded by "especially for women" traps that might not be the best deal (you know I love a sale!). I have seen more than a few "gifts" that were used "because the kids gave it to me" or heard the "can you believe he got that for me?", followed by the story of returning it.
So here are my thoughtful suggestions on what to consider, and maybe where you can look for some potential golf gifts for women:

Ah, the holiday season - it's that time where you may be trying to find that special golf gift for that special golf person, or you're a savvy shopper looking for some good deals for yourself!
Tees2Greens very own super fitness contributor, Mindi Boysen, shared some great suggestions for some neat gear that can help you improve your game, but sometimes you just want a new pair of shoes!!

I know the holidays are a time for joy and laughter, but if you're like me and still making that mad scramble (pun intended) to finish your Christmas shopping, the "good cheer" thing is a little harder to come by. But when you put it golf perspective, at least I can smile a little more.
Keep up with the pace of play.
Where was a ranger when I needed him??? Before I had even hit my first store after work yesterday my frustration level had hit its peak. If we had been on the golf course, the guy in the maroon Subaru Forrester would have probably been hit into. He was one of those guys who felt the need to drive 20 in a 30mph and took FOREVER to get going when the car in front of him started moving. When we missed the first stoplight I yelled and threw my hands in the air (you know this move, don't you?). Uh oh, this is not starting out well.
When I found Tees2Greens website and forum I found a happy place. There were great people there and in 2009 they asked me if I wanted my own blog space. It was a dream come true!! The site is down now, but I was able to get all of my posts to be able to post here. I will always be grateful for all of the Tees2Greens folks!!
