1. Know Your Golfer
Are they a beginner who doesn't have a lot of discs? Almost any kind of disc would be great for the beginner, just ask someone in the shop and they will have great recomendations. Are they a competitive golfer? They will be more specific of what they might want so I would check out Tip # 5 for your competitive golfer.
2. Weight and Color Matter
Some golfers carry specific colors in their bags or avoid certain colors. You might want to know your golfer and what colors they prefer or avoid. Weight is also important for some as they try to have the same weight range in their bag at all times. Also extreme weight variations could cause the disc to have a different flight pattern so its a good idea to know what weight they like or stick to an average weight range which anyone in the shop would know how to help you.
For younger golfers under the age of 12 it may be a good idea to stick to the lighter weights discs as it will help them with their form and distance and help them reach the desired flight pattern for each disc.
3. Get Them a Gift Card

4. Ask What to Get
Really want to make sure you get something they love? You should ask them or their golfing buddies to see what they have been throwing, asking about, or needing in their bag. Try to get a list from them or their friends and head online to get what they want.
5. Pick Up on Hints
Are there specific brands, plastics, colors, weights that they have bene talking about? Or do they mention their favorite disc getting lost or too beaten up on the course? Listen closely and I bet you will be able to find out something they would love the holidays.
