Looking for a unique gift that can be enjoyed long after the holidays are over? Give the gift of golf! Whether the giftee is an expert or a novice at the game, playing golf at Harbor Club on Lake Oconee is a thoughtful experience gift. In fact, research from San Francisco State University shows that experience gifts actually trump tangible ones. And a Forbes article also notes that experiences, rather than material things, bring people more happiness.
Why? It’s because the joy and the memories made from special experiences are ones that can last a lifetime -- long after a new, cool, shiny “thing” is forgotten. Here’s how you can make a special someone’s holiday with the gift of golf this year:
Book a tee time
During the holidays or any time of year, surprise your friends and family members with the gift of 18-holes, on you. Throw in a few beverages and a nice meal, and you’ll make an excellent day of it -- one that your recipients will remember for many years to come, especially if it’s a surprise. All you have to do is book a tee time and go.
Plan to play in a tournament
Members or not, both our men’s and ladies golf associations offer multiple fun tournaments throughout the year that caters to both. Often, these tournaments have a good cause tied to them, making the gift of play doubly rewarding. Our friendly pro shop staff can help you choose and sign up for upcoming tournaments that would be most meaningful to you and your gift recipients.
Give a membership
There are several options that Harbor Club offers for memberships -- from full golf to social; it’s easy to find one that can fit most any lifestyle. Depending on the type of membership you choose, your benefactors will receive tons of benefits. These can include not just exclusive access to our award-winning course but access to The Grove as well as beautiful Lake Oconee via our Boathouse Marina -- not to mention a full calendar of fun social events and activities too.
So make your list and check it twice. It’s time to be good, for goodness sake! Contact us to give a magnificent golf experience gift today.
