Dear Santa... All I want for Christmas is that diamond encrusted solid gold putter with unicorn skin handle and limited edition headcover hand made by Cuban virgins...
Here at #GCW we don’t do things by half so we are unashamedly plugging some proper expensive gear, that you can stick on your list for Santa - while holding onto the smallest possible chance of getting some free gear in return.
From unaffordable golf wear to the just damn right outrageous, one of a kind nonsense that no one except a Columbian drug lord can afford, we take a look at what you could buy….
(NB - We do not in any way endorse the selling of drugs… of any sort… except the legal stuff…by that we mean stuff you can buy at Boots)
‘59’ 24k Gold Plated Golf Belt Buckle
59 Belts are based in the US and were the first company in the golf industry to CNC-mill belt buckles (Using computers) and the first to create true custom one-off belt buckles.
Hard Plated with two microns of 24k gold you too can boss the course like Kanye, apparently it is 'perfectly suitable on the first tee, in the office, or for that special event for which you want to look your absolute best.'
I’m not sure what your boss would say, let alone your golf pals.
Includes custom engraving on the back of the buckle and a special edition homemade belt bag. However, it does not include an alligator belt strap for that out and out Oil Magnate look that you may be trying to achieve.
Cost $559.00 www.59belts.com
Jaermann & Stübi Seve Ballesteros - SB1
You use a pencil to write your score down?! What utter nonsense...
Urs Jaermann took a dislike of keeping score, combined with his love of watches and the idea of Jaermann & Stubi was born. Everything being handcrafted and not mass produced make these watches some of the most sought after wrist additions to be found.
The SB1 can record strokes per hole, total score, holes played and handicap comparison. It also tells the time.
The biggest feature about this watch?
The one to nine irons as well as the pitching wedge and sand wedge used when Seve won the Chunichi Crowns Open in Japan, 1991 have been forged into 50 watch cases for the exclusive limited series.
