Golf gift cards: 7 smart last-minute ideas for Father’s Day

gift cards

These gift cards are the perfect last-minute Father's Day gift for your golf-loving Dad.

What to get the Dad who has everything for Father’s Day? In a lot of cases, there are creative answers to that question. You can have something custom-designed, or buy a golf gift with a personal touch, or purchase him something unrelated to golf altogether (well, in fairness, whiskey is a golf gift).

But even with a plethora of opportunities available for golf fans of all shapes and sizes, finding a proper Father’s Day gift hasn’t gotten any easier. There are gift guides and shipping options available for nearly everything, but nothing you feel confident is going to be a home run with Dad.

It’s simply a fact. Not everyone has the time required to adequately orchestrate a gift of significant magnitude. Sometimes, the best gift to give someone is the freedom of choice — a freedom uniquely provided by gift cards. These suckers get a bad rap for being a “lazy gift,” but what they lack in sentimentality they make up for in cold, hard pragmatism.

For Father’s Day 2020, don’t bend over backward, get your dad what he really wants, the freedom to choose what he really wants! Here are our favorites.
