    Five Golf Themed Gift Ideas

    Stop. Take the golf tees out your shopping cart. Now back away. We’ve got 5 great golf gift ideas for you instead. Because your golf-loving partner/parent/best friend does not need to find yet another bag of novelty tees/sleeve of golf balls/branded glove in his or her stocking this Christmas. Instead, show them how much thought you (ahem – we) put into their gift this year and stick one of these fabulous golf gifts from the Vancouver Island Golf Trail under the tree. Just call us Santa’s favourite little helper!

    Gift 1: For the Fanatic

    Nothing says “I love you, Merry Christmas” like this, the ultimate golf gift: A Vancouver Island Golf Trail Card. This magical card allows the bearer to play one round each at 12 incredible Vancouver Island golf courses. For just $329 you can inspire never-ending devotion and gratitude – and year-long golf happiness. Pure genius.

    Gift 2: For the Envy-Gifter

    You know how sometimes you buy the best gift ever, then begrudge giving it away – it’s just so good you want to keep it yourself? We call that envy-gifting. No need to turn as green as your Christmas tree this year though: Arbutus Ridge has put together a fantastic 12 Days of Christmas Special Offer gift list – from a $130 five-game pack, to four one-hour lessons for the price of three, to customised golf balls. (Okay, in this instance we’ll allow the golf balls – who doesn’t love a customised golf ball, eh!) All gifts you wish you could just grab back, yes? Luckily for you, Arbutus Ridge is going to save your Christmas spirit from turning Scrooge-like: nearly every one of their special offers has a little something extra for you to keep. (Special Offers end on December 16 – so best you put your power cart into top gear.)

    Gift 3: For the Newbie

    You know what’s a great gift? A lifetime of good golf. Why not give the newbie golfer in your life the gift of lessons to set them up to play their best possible golf from the get-go. Fairwinds Golf Club is offering great Christmas specials on Lesson Packages (amongst some other great golf gift ideas, by the way). Bonus: their specials run until December 24 so if you’re a last-minute kind of shopper (no pointing fingers!), you’re in luck.

    Gift 4: For the Disillusioned Golfer

    Get your once-golf-loving-but-currently-disillusioned golfer back into the swing of things with a round of something guaranteed to put the pep back into their round: 18 holes of Foot Golf (soccer golf) at Crown Isle Golf Resort. Think of it as the super-sized version of golf – with half the frustration!

    Gift 5: For the All-Rounder

    r some golfers it’s all about the golf. They go from car, to course and straight back to the car. For others, it’s the whole experience that has them golfing-mad: some power-swinging at the driving range, a round of golf, a little bit of celebratory (or therapeutic) shopping at the pro-shop, and a post-round drink or dinner at the 19th. Highland Pacific has the perfect gift for this all-rounder: Gift Cards at Highland Pacific can be used anywhere on the facility for any purpose. It really is the gift that keeps on giving!

    Still at a loss? Don’t succumb to the novelty golf/Christmas sweater! We’ve got one last idea for you and a it’s a winner: just give us a call on 1.888.465.3239 and customize a Vancouver Island golf package for your golf-fanatic loved one. We’ve got some hot deals on great packages guaranteed to put you on just about anybody’s ‘Nice’ list – for at least the next two Christmases!

    This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is my new favourite golf course – I just love the layout. It’s really one of the prettiest golf courses I’ve played in my life, I’ll come back here on vacation, it’s that good.

    Scott McCarron, PGA TOUR Champion

    I always treat golf courses as how many poor holes there are. This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is a very good one. There’s not one poor hole on this golf course.

    Colin Montgomerie, PGA TOUR Champion

    Great job on the initial booking and subsequent changes requested. Easy check-in at the golf courses and the hotel made the trip hassle-free. Nice touch with the driving directions and discounts at recommended food and beverage establishments. Will definitely recommend your service to friends and business associates.

    Vancouver Guest, Corporate Golf Outing

    Terrific trip: well presented website, knowledgeable staff, and the golf and accommodation were second to none.

    We will make this trip an annual April vacation. We will definitely book with Golf Vancouver Island again in 2017!
