Do you have a golf outing around the corner? Perhaps you work for a course and want some cool stuff with your logo to sell. Either way, custom golf gear is perfect for you!
Which items can you customize? What are the best design tips and tricks? Here’s the personalized gear your golfers are sure to love!
What Golf Gear Can You Customize?
A wide variety of golf gear can be customized with your unique design. This includes:
The design is printed right on the front, usually via pad printing. Since most golf balls are white, you’ll want to stick with a darker ink so your design shows up clearly.
Do you have a unique logo? Get it embroidered on the front of form-fitting polos. You’ll want to stock up on a bunch of colors to fit every player’s personal style.
Tees may be small, but they still have a big impact. People will use their set over and over again, which means a lot of exposure if you print your company name on the front.
It can be awfully sunny on the fairway. Protect every golfer’s eyes with athletic sunglasses in a variety of colors and styles.
The turf can get torn up during an intense golf game. Fix it up on the spot with easy-to-use divot repair tools.
Ball markers help players not only keep track of their shots, but also add a personal touch to the game. From poker chips to smiley faces, there are a variety of styles to choose from.
Your gift shop is likely already stocked with polos and t-shirts. Complete the entire look with custom visors that are fitted with Velcro.
Don’t let rain ruin a day on the course! Golf umbrellas will add much needed protection at every hole.
You can work up a serious sweat during a golf game! A golf towel is a must-have for amateur and professional players alike.
For those times when a golf cart isn’t available, custom shoe bags can be a real lifesaver! This is a pricier item to customize, but well worth it for serious tournaments.
No matter what, promotional items are a great way to bring more attention to your golf outing or course.

Choose the Right Colors
In the world of promotional products, you can usually only print a select number of colors before you’re charged extra. The good news is you don’t need that many to make an impact!
Choose a logo color that pairs well with the color of the actual product. Here’s some inspiration:
White Golf Balls with Navy, Maroon, Purple, or Black Ink
Stick with one darker colored ink, especially if the balls are white. This will show up clearly and provide a nice contrast.
Full Color Ball Markers
A good number of promotional ball markers come with full color printing. This means you can use as many colors as you want with no extra charge.
Colorful Tees with Black or White Ink
Your choice of either black or white ink depends on the color of the tees. Darker tees should use white ink, while lighter tees should use black.
For apparel items like polos and visors, you can have your design stitched onto the fabric instead of using ink. The number of thread colors you can use are included in the price.
Your color choices really boil down to how much you have to spend and what you want to print. Carefully consider all your options before starting the customization process!
Why is Custom Golf Gear Important?
It’s not about what you customize, but how you use the items at your golf outing or course.
Take for instance Ashbury’s golf course in Bolingbrook, Illinois. Every year at their Brew Dash this course offers guests some kind of custom merchandise they can bring home with them. In 2018, it was all about custom steins for the refillable beer in the food tent.
No matter what, you should have custom merchandise and giveaways for your golf outing or course. It’s a great way to ensure guests have fun and take pride in completing 18 holes with you!
The Bottom Line
A golf outing or day on the course is meant to be fun. You want souvenirs your players can take home to remember all the excitement. They may just come golf with you again next time!
