New Mexico Golf News is constantly on the lookout for new and interesting golf gift ideas. There’s no better time to share them than the holidays. Here are some of the innovative and affordable golf gift ideas we’ve come across.
W. Barton Walker of Tempe, Ariz., owner of Jack Grace USA had a simple idea. What if golfers could swap out the look of their golf shoes on a whim. His company produces saddleshoe-style golf shoes with Velcro saddles that can be pulled off and replaced with a different color, pattern or design. Want to show your USA colors on Saturday, your camo colors on Sunday and your Pittsburgh Steeler colors on Monday, simply tear them off and replace them. Thanks to the Velcro and small magnets, no tools are needed. The shoes com in white, black and grey with any in-stock color and go for $160-$170. Additional saddles, which come in solids, prints and patterns and include laces, go for $40. Or even design your own saddle with your corporate logo or image. For the holidays, Jack Grace is offering holiday bundles of one set of shoes with three colored saddles for $149. jackgraceusa.com
