Score Big with Top Golf Products

Wednesday June 13, 2012 | Filed under: Members, News About ASI, Using Ad Specialties

It takes a lot of imagination to devise cool new products for a game as old as golf, which began in Scotland way back during the Middle Ages.

And now that I’m in my middle age, I’m not afraid to make a confession: I’m not a golfer. I know that for a businessman, that’s about as crazy as saying I don’t like making money, but it’s the truth. That said, I am really impressed with the batch of golf products Joe “The Joe Show” Haley recently compiled in honor of this Sunday’s Father’s Day.

The ad specialties below can be easily branded by any number of companies and charitable organizations to reward tournament winners and to advertise a brand, club, group or greens any time of the year:

  • Golf bag, from King Par (asi/64861). A lightweight, multi-pocket golf bag with retractable legs is the perfect high-end gift for executives or as a prize for tournament winners.
  • Umbrella, from Windbrella (asi/97247). Every golfer needs an umbrella that is oversized and has vents to prevent the wind from turning it inside out. Imprint a school or company logo on this model’s panels.
  • Cover keeper, from Eisinger Smith Inc. (asi/51810). Golfers love to protect their clubs, but the problem with golf club covers is that they tend to disappear, like the missing sock during a wash cycle. The cover keeper ensures that once the club has been removed, the cover doesn’t stray.
  • Spotless Swing 3-in-1 towel, from Pro Towels Etc. (asi/79750). This 3-in-1 golf towel has a carabiner so it easily attaches to any loop on a golf bag. It has three surfaces: inside for muddy clubs, a grooved towel for irons and the outside surface for hands and faces.
  • Ball marker, from Tin Cup Products (asi/91354). Make like a pro golfer and use a similar felt-tipped marker and tin cup to mark yours, too.
  • Hook/slice correcting ball, from Polara Golf (asi/78841). The average duffer has one of two unwanted habits: either hooking or slicing the ball too often. This ball can correct those tendencies by 75%, which means straighter drives from the tee box.
  • Flag, from Quinn Flags (asi/80228). Golf outing organizers can give away customized flags at day’s end so golfers have something to remember them by.
  • Divot tool set, from EMT (asi/52263). The switchblade-action divot repair tool comes in a gift tin and includes three ball markers that adhere to the unit via a magnet. The ball markers and tin can be totally customized.
  • Shot glass, from Crown Products (asi/47700). Now for something completely different – this shot glass is made of food-grade silicone and will not break, even if it’s run over by a car. But the neat thing is it has a dimple on the bottom, and when turned over it can actually be used as a golf tee. A fun giveaway for a charity golf event.
  • Wristlok bracelet, from Fey Promotional Products Group (asi/54040). Comes with removable tabs and is perfect for golf outings. Each tab can be used for a drink or to participate in contests like longest drive or closest to the pin.
  • Cap with ball marker, from Headwear USA (asi/60282). Many golfers wear a cap or visor when golfing. This cap features a unique magnetized ball marker.
  • Award, from Proactive Sports (asi/79682). At the end of the day, a glazed ceramic award with polished chrome finish that comes in three different sizes is the perfect prize.
