Golfers (and all mini-style-setters) can’t get enough of the three stripes. This unisex edition features all the technology of the classic adidas adult-version, just pared down for a child’s sizing. We love this holographic color for a hint of fun, but there are plenty of color options—even if your golfer already owns a pair, these are fun to dress up for a day off-the-course. They also make a versatile option for the golfer who’s just getting into their game or has to make a quick change from school-to-practice.

If your kiddo can’t get enough golf (or you’re getting tired of driving them to and from the golf course), this is a great gift option to help bring golf to your child, keeping them busy and allowing them more opportunities to improve at home. With no-slip technology and a snazzy roll-away feature, this mat will stay put when you want to roll it out, and pack away neatly when your child is done with their latest putting contest. It even features a post to lean a club against, and a return-ball mechanism to optimize practice time.

$139 | Amazon Buy Now Callaway Supersoft Matte Green Personalized Golf Balls
Many golf ball brands feature a personalization option, but we love these for the spunky color (that will also stand out on the course). Though once you’ve had these golf balls embossed with your young golfer’s signature catchphrase, Top Gun-inspired call sign, or motivational messaging, they might want to save these for their at-home practice so they don’t risk losing them on-course.
$25 | Callaway Buy Now U.S. Kids Ultralight Clubs

U.S. Kids Golf has been vetted by our editors as a great option for junior golfers. The brand even offers a program where you can get every sixth club you purchase for free. These clubs are available in nine different sizes and are lightweight — up to 30% lighter than adult clubs — making them easier to hit so your young golfer can receive the positive feedback golfers of all ages look for.

$15 | Amazon Buy Now Renwick Girls Polo Dress
Since its founding in 2020, Renwick has made a name for itself as a (re)creator of the perfect men’s polo, translated for women and now, kids. Made with an impossibly soft Peruvian Pima cotton (also an environmentally-responsible material), this polo dress is sophisticated and timeless, perfect for the younger golfer who likes, nay, deserves, nice things. Check out their boys’ options as well, and maybe even consider buying an adult polo too…did someone say twinning?
$60 | Renwick Buy Now Birds of Condor No Shanks Golf Towel
This Australian brand is redefining “cool” when it comes to hip golfwear. While their clothes are in adult sizing, their accessories make for great junior golfer gifts, particularly if you’re shopping for a young golfer who’s too cool for school. The reversible towel features a zebra print on one side, and a witty smiley face on the other. Stay away if your kiddo hates puns. You’ve been warned! And if that is the case, check out this equally cool technicolor option.
$45 | Birds of Condor Buy Now Devereux Proper Kids Polo
Made with the same fabric as the hip brand’s men’s polos, these youth versions feature micro-prints ranging from miniature cacti to birds of paradise to hula dancers. Wrinkle-resistant, sweat-wicking, and machine-washable, these polos are designed for the golf course and the playground and Saturday night dinner-with-the-grandparents. Basically, there’s nowhere your kid won’t want to wear these polos, and, luckily, they come in enough fun prints and colors that this could make up their entire wardrobe… all depends on how good they’ve been this year.
