EVER cringed when a well meaning but non golfing friend or relative threatened to go out and buy you some golf balls or god forbid a golf club as a gift?
Now you don’t have to worry about what kind of “useful” item they might turn up with.
Available from this week is a gift you can gently steer them towards that you know at least has a chance of coming in handy on the golf course.
Golfers can be such finicky creatures, they could also be the perfect gift for your golfing friends.
We’re talking about an Australian golf industry first from the PGA – PGA Gift Cards.
The new gift cards are available from this week and can be used by consumers to redeem lessons, green fees, equipment and any other professional services on offer through your local PGA Professional.
Similar to those sold at leading retailers the PGA Gift Cards are EFTPOS enabled gift cards, and can be loaded to any amount between $10.00 to $999.00 and can be redeemed at any venue within the participating PGA Gift Card network.
“The new PGA Gift Cards will drive more business to our network of PGA professionals around Australia, at the same time guaranteeing that consumers are purchasing their equipment and receiving expert advice from a reputable source,” Max Garske, CEO of the PGA of Australia, said today.
“PGA members are the ‘Experts in the Game’ across all facets of golf and the gift card will ensure consumers benefit from this expertise whether it be through getting a lesson, being professionally club fitted or through simply taking to the course for a round.”
The perfect gift for golfers of all ability levels, the PGA Gift Cards can be ordered by Pro Shops and soon will also be available to purchase through other retail outlets and the PGA website.
