So if you are in the fortunate position where money is no object and you want the best of everything for your golf game, let’s look at where you should start.

Golf Tuition for Kids

Some people are not into golf. There I said it.

It’s shocking considering how brilliant it is I know, but there are many people who haven’t got a clue about the game and many of them are parents.

Speaking as a parent, whose daughter is a huge swimming fan (a sport of which my level of understanding ends at the avoidance of drowning), I therefore empathise with parents who may have a golf-mad child on their hand but be utterly beleaguered about what to buy them this Christmas.

Christmas golf gifts for 2014

So as a public service, because we here at Gorilla Golf are just splendid folks, we’re going to give you a list of the golf items you can buy for your child this Christmas.
For the purposes of this, we are assuming your child is around the ages of 7 to 12, though the list is applicable to children in their teens too.

There’s two lists: One a list of golfing items your child really must have (which is surprisingly short), and another a list of items that would be useful to have, but which are not necessary to start playing the game.

The nights are drawing in, the weather is turning a little colder and more unpredictable and soon, it will be genuine winter golf time. If you are in part of the world where golf is still possible and your courses aren’t transformed into snowy wastelands, or rain-soaked puddles of mud, then fortunately you can still enjoy some winter golf.

For many people though, winter golf means a time to hit the range and practise some of the many mistakes that they have noticed throughout the year that seems to be a problem within their golf game.

However, so many problems out on the course, and I speak from long and painful experience, comes from the simple fact that you don’t really know how far you hit each club, nor the difference in distance between each club.

Are You A Nutter For The Drutter?

I’ve seen some odd things on a golf course in my time. Of course, there are some golf fashions, particularly those worn by John Daly, that plummet off the edge of ‘stylish’ and deep into the pit of mental cruelty, such is the clash of vivid colours that assaults the eyes.

Then there’s Adam Scott, the former World Number 1 and Masters champion who is a genuinely nice, disarming and charming chap, but who just happens to putt the ball with a club that resembles a television aerial. When he puts that club back in the bag I am sure he can tune in to any radio or TV station across the globe.

Leo-Millar golf prodigy

It is the time of the year when people who perhaps do not play the game of golf, often consider buying a loved one a golfing present. One of the most popular items to gift someone, especially a high-handicap golfer, or a beginner, is a golf instruction video, or a golf instruction book.

Certainly both of these items have their use, but can they really improve your game, or is there a better way you can help a loved one shoot lower scores on the course next year?

That’s what Gorilla Golf have attempted to find out…

New Clubs for 2014 – Part Three – Putters

It’s the club you take most shots each year with by a considerable margin, yet for many, it is the club they pay least attention to when purchasing a new set.
