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:

I was browsing through some golf links last night and came across an interesting blog. The makers of Solus Wedges have created a neat web site and blog site to share their story of trying to make their mark on the Professional Tours.
I'll admit I've never heard of Solus (although I'm wondering now if they've had an infomercial?)...and if you read their blog, the Solus guys aren't all that surprised that they are still under the radar. They have some very interesting commentary on the "big guns" in the equipment world and the challenges they face as they are trying to get their wedges into Tour bags.
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!!
