Father’s day always seems to sneak up on me despite all the advertisements on TV. To be honest, my father (who reads this blog religiously despite it being for young women), would prefer a personalized thoughtful card, which usually works out to my benefit given my tendency for procrastination.
He always says that he doesn’t need anything. Typically, I (try to) buy him dinner, always get him a card, sometimes a picture frame with an old photo or split a flight with my brother and sister so he can come visit us from Florida. Of course, if you are a single child this may get pricey so having siblings helps on this one.
But for the newer dads who are tuckered out from rising early, waking up in the middle of the night and being great dads, there are finer things to show appreciation.
My brother in law, and father to my niece Cami, plays golf probably more than once a week. When I wear my fancy GPS and heart rate monitoring watches athletes are always asking questions. Until now, I’m not sure there was a watch specifically designed for golfers like Geno to improve their game, like runners do with our fancy watches.
The TomTom Golfer utilizes GPS, course information and full-screen graphics to show you accurate hazard and green distances (to front, center and back of green). helps golfers plan their game and quickly make informed decisions on their next shot by introducing full-screen graphical visualizations and wireless access to critical course data. It comes preloaded with information on more than 34,000 courses that can be updated wirelessly through a smartphone.
Light and durable it looks sharp too. It looks similar to the other TomTom models which I wear and get tons of questions and compliments on it.
The TomTom Golfer is intended for people who are aiming to improve their game and consistently reach lower scores. There are two key factors that determine a golfer’s success – swing mechanics and course strategy. Ben Hogan famously said: “the most important shot in golf is the next one”. The TomTom Golfer helps golfers set their course strategy by providing at-a-glance graphics to critical course data. This enables golfers to quickly make smarter decisions on their next shot and improve how they play.
With a two year old daughter and a second little girl on her way (due in August!), I know my brother in law would really appreciate this gift. Roomie would too, but he’ll have to wait at least another year for a Father’s day gift.

After taking a quick family vacation to Florida over memorial day weekend, my dad was so excited to play my brother in golf because my dad had been practicing all spring and my brother (a college student) hadn’t put in quite the same amount of practice on the greens. My brother, the natural athlete, was still able to beat my dad on the course. Maybe with a little help from the TomTom Golfer and some extra father’s day love, he can beat my bro before the summer is over!
Awesome father’s day idea!
Amy K says
My dad would really enjoy this!
My husband used to play golf before we started a family -- now that our son is older, he has been wanting to get back into it, this would be great motivation and a perfect gift too!
My dad would love this! He’s been golfing since before I was born (so well over 28 years!) so he’d go nuts over this watch.
Kelsey R says
AHH! I had no idea that this watch existed! I’m about to put in an order for golf club covers for my dad. My sisters and I are doing three total (one for each of us) with photos of us on them. Super cheesy but I hope he’ll love them. I bet he’d love a golfing watch to go with it! (I can’t believe a watch has all of the course data on it.)
Courtney F. says
My husband is a former Ritz-Carlton caddy who loves golf with a passion! He always volunteers to take our 2 girls to the course or the driving range to let me have alone time, even though he rarely gets a round in by himself or with friends. I’d love to show him our appreciation by giving him something like this that can help him improve his own game! Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads out there!
