A Mother’s Day Blessing for Golfer Mom’s

Do something spectacular for that special Mom in your life this Mother’s Day. Whisk her away for a weekend stay at her favorite Resort; make arrangements for a treatment at the Spa, enjoy brunch with your Mom at the country club and invite her to play a round of golf with you afterwards.

Here are some Mother’s Day golf gift ideas to help you narrow down some choices:

• A gift certificate to a major golf store (think Golf Galaxy), because your Mom enjoys new golf outfits and equipment updates as much as the next person.

• A sleeve of ProVI’s or perhaps the new Callaway Pearls, because new balls are great as long as they’re not Top-Flites.

• A tee time, because your Mom loves to play golf, but making arrangements in advance isn’t her strong suit. For the same reason, be sure to book a babysitter, if children or grandchildren are a handicap.

• New gloves and a handful of tees, because those kinds of things disappear in the depths of her golf bag with alarming regularity.

• And, finally, a spa treatment, because Lord knows, being imperfect after a round of golf is quite stressful, she really could use a massage.

There, is that so hard? No puppies, no babies, no lollipops, no kitsch in sight. You can skip the fancy range bucket and the curly ribbon, by the way. The last thing your Mom needs is more clutter.
