CALIA Women's 16" Birdie Golf Skort

CALIA, the women’s athleisure brand from Dick’s Sporting Goods and Golf Galaxy, has recently expanded its reach with an innovative golf line that packs several impressive technologies into each of its high-quality looks. Made from breathable, stretchable fabric (polyester/spandex blend), the Birdie golf skort feels as good as it looks. It starts with proprietary moisture-wicking technology (called BODYBREEZE) that pulls moisture away from the body so you can stay dry and comfortable on the course on warm days. The fabric is also treated with an odor-inhibiting application, and UPF 50+ gives your skin an added layer of protection from the sun’s harmful rays. There are four pockets—two in front, one in back, and one in the shorts part of the skort. Available in a wide selection of colors and styles, including solid black, white, mauve or slate, plus some great-looking prints. Sizing runs from XS to 3X. 

Lady Hagen Women's Printed UV Long Sleeve Golf Quarter Zip

Quarter-zip pullovers are functional, fashionable layering pieces that are versatile enough to be worn both on and off the course. In reviewing Lady Hagen’s version of the long-sleeved garment, you’ll find more than a dozen fun colors and patterns, including classic leopard, plaid or floral to brighten up your day. 

Made from a polyester/spandex blend, this easy-to-wear pullover boasts several performance-enriching technologies. For instance, the fabric has been pre-treated with UPF 50+, so it can protect you from the sun’s rays. The base material is also engineered with cooling properties so you won’t overheat on hot, humid summer days. Specifically, the wicking technology allows moisture to escape rather than trapping it against the skin. 

FootJoy Women's Fuel Sport Golf Shoes

These shoes feel as comfortable as they look; just slip them on and you’re good to go. The Fuel Sport features a full, rounded toe with plenty of room across the forefoot and instep, and a slightly narrower heel area. With built-in lightweight foam cushioning, the shoe eliminates the possibility of foot fatigue during the round, and the breathable mesh upper with thin TPU coating provides waterproof protection. The spikeless sole has an extra-stable arch section for added support and control while walking or swinging. The Fuel Sport can be hand-washed to remove stains, or even machine-washed in the case of more difficult stains. 

Adidas Women's S2G Spikeless Golf Shoes

In 2019, adidas introduced the company’s first golf shoe made with recycled materials. It was more than a “one-off” design—the footwear giant is continuing, even expanding, its commitment to sustainability. Case in point: recycled materials (i.e., plastic waste) have a major role in the women’s S2G shoe.

Recycled content accounts for half the material used in the upper on this shoe, and it’s treated with a thin coating to add waterproof protection. The casual look is ideal for summertime rounds of golf, and there’s plenty of cushioning in the midsole to make it extra comfortable. With more than 100 V-shaped lugs, the spikeless sole delivers traction you can count on, even on wet and uneven surfaces. The sole design makes it appropriate to wear off-the-course as well. 

TaylorMade Kalea Premier 11-piece Complete Set (Premium)

The reviews are in and the Kalea Premier is a proven winner for women golfers who have slightly slower swing speeds. With low-center-of-gravity clubheads and ultra-light graphite shafts, you can expect the new norm to be longer, higher shots. And, when you do strike shots low on the face, the company’s flexible-face design is there to help balls carry further than they would otherwise. The set’s forgiving attributes don’t stop there. The 12.5-degree driver has a 22-gram backweight to bolster forgiveness on off-center hits. Meanwhile, the 5-wood and pair of hybrids (5-Rescue and 6-Rescue) feature the popular V-Steel sole, which slides through turf regardless of lie. Likewise, the stainless-steel irons (7-9, PW, SW) limit unwanted vibrations on slight misses. Even the mallet-shaped Spider putter has a lightweight graphite shaft, which contributes to its pleasing feel.  The 10 clubs are housed in a sturdy cart bag, with full-length dividers and seven pockets. 

Top Flite 22 XL AQUA Complete Set

Is your mom just getting interested in golf? Starter sets like this one are designed specifically for players who are dabbling with the game and looking for clubs to use the first couple of years. With the Top Flite XL, new golfers have the opportunity to begin their golf journey with quality gear at a reasonable price (less than $300). The package includes nine graphite-shafted clubs, including a 12.5-degree titanium-composite driver; a 3-wood; a 5-hybrid; five stainless-steel, cavity-back irons (6-iron through pitching wedge); and a midsized mallet putter. In addition, headcovers are included for the driver and fairway wood. Best of all, the set has a durable, lightweight stand bag with dual strap so carrying the clubs is something to look forward to rather than dreading. The bag has six dividers in the top to keep clubs organized, plus three easy-to-access storage pockets. 

Women’s Callaway Tour Authentic Glove

Few things in golf are as pleasing as the simple act of slipping on a new glove made from premium Cabretta leather. The Tour Authentic glove from Callaway boasts a velvety-soft feel and comfortable fit that lets you know it’s go-time. The leather is infused with a coating called Griptac, which provides more tackiness than a typical glove. Beyond that, the Tour Authentic features several technologies that we’ve come to expect in high-end offerings. For instance, perforations in the finger section provide breathability by limiting moisture buildup. Also, the cuff is lined with a moisture-wicking material to allow that area of the glove to dry quickly during the round. Available in white only, the glove comes in small, medium or large sizes. 

Nike Women's AeroBill Golf Visor

More than just a fashion accessory, the Dri-FIT AeroBill visor provides a number of practical uses. First, the wide bill gives plenty of coverage from the sun’s rays. That’s good because you don’t want to squint during play. More importantly, the visor is an additional source of protection beyond sunscreen, even on overcast days when many golfers don’t realize they’re susceptible to the effects of the sun. There’s also an absorbent sweatband ringing the inside of the bill to prevent perspiration from dripping into the eyes. Meanwhile, the back strap adjusts to fit any head size. The AeroBill comes in a wide variety of colors, including light blue, white, teal, pink or black, so it’s quick and easy to color-match with all of your favorite outfits. 

Callaway ORG 14 Womens Cart Bag

For 2023, Callaway made its popular women’s ORG 14 cart bag even more versatile. The top section has new rubber panels, which enables the bag to sit securely within the cradle of a pull or push cart. As in previous ORG 14 iterations, there are 14 slots for clubs with full-length dividers to prevent shafts and grips from getting tangled inside the bag. All 11 pockets are accessible from the front so players have numerous options to handle their storage needs when the bag is on any kind of cart (including a riding cart).

In addition to the obvious requirements for extra apparel or golf balls, there are pockets for valuables, a rangefinder, a snap pocket for the cell phone, and even a lined one to keep drinks cold. Our review wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the white bag has rose-colored accents and a breezy tropical pattern to boot. 

The Gift of a Better Game

Still unsure what to get your loved one for Mother’s Day? Golf Galaxy gift cards are a terrific choice. They can be used toward new golf clubs, bags, shoes, visors— you name it. Gift cards start at $5 and go up to $500. They’re available for purchase both in-store and online, plus the money on the card will never expire. Maybe new gear isn’t what you had in mind for mom’s ultimate gift. In that case, consider getting the gift card for golf lessons with a PGA- or LPGA-certified pro at your nearest Golf Galaxy store. You could even choose the dollar amount toward a lesson package: $79.99, for one 30-minute lesson; $219.99, for three lessons; $399.99, for six lessons; $599.99, for 10 lessons. The more lessons you get, the greater the savings.
