Golf Equipment Dads Want For Father’s Day
If you’re lucky enough to have a father who loves playing golf, choosing a Father’s Day gift might seem like a piece of cake. But are you up on the latest and greatest golf equipment that Dads are hoping for? What might Dad be wishing for this year? How can you make this Father’s Day special?
At Shaftesbury Glen Golf & Fish Club, the hottest selling putters are from the TaylorMade’s White Smoke line. These beauties come in three models —the center-shafted blade and the mallet are both face-balanced, and the L-neck blade features an offset. All three sport TaylorMade’s familiar white crown. The color is said to cut glare and three nice black alignment lines are etched into the white landscape to show Dad how to putt more on target.
If you’ve heard Dad mumbling in his sleep during his Sunday nap on the sofa, he’s probably dreaming of hitting the hottest new club in golf right now — TaylorMade’s RocketBallz 3 wood.
The story goes that pro Dustin Johnson, who’s known as one of the longest players on the pro tour, tested the fairway wood and exclaimed that the ball took off its face “like a rocket,” giving the club its name.
If your Dad’s the type that likes to try out clubs for a round or two on the course before giving them a permanent berth in his bag, why not consider giving him a real treat and taking him on a golf outing to test clubs.
Book a three-day golf package getaway with him at Shaftesbury Glen’s suites. From June through August, Shaftesbury Suites is running a deal that gets you and Dad on the golf course for just cart fees when you stay in one of their five luxury 2 bedroom, 2 bath suites. The suites are on the exclusive second floor of the magnificent Shaftesbury Glen Manor House that overlooks the golf course and the beautiful Waccamaw River.
Once you check into the suites, Shaftesbury’s pro shop can provide Dad with some RocketBallz rental clubs so he can take on the challenge of Shaftesbury Glen in style. He’ll love the chance to test the clubs under real conditions and he’ll be entranced by architect Clyde Johnson’s homage to Winged Foot and Augusta National.
On the final day of the trip, why not treat Dad to a logoed hat or shirt as a reminder of the great time you’ve had together?
We all know that what Dads really want for Father’s Day is quality time with their kids. And what better way to spend it than together, on a golf course vacation, testing out the best in golf equipment?
