It’s that time of year again – when gift giving (and getting) is one everyyone’s minds and lists. The team at Spike’s Peeks: The Art of Travel has put together a few gift lists that will appeal to golfers and outdoors enthusists. Here’s List No.1.
Pinehurst Resort + Donald Ross Package
The best gift any golfer can receive. Pinehurst Resort’s Donald Ross Package is an absolute bargain in the “off-season,” offering golfers a chance to experience the Cradle of American Golf at more than 50 percent off the peak spring and fall rates. Packages include two nights’ accommodations in any of the resort’s three hotels, villas or condos and three rounds of golf on any of its nine courses.
And because all that golf makes for a hungry group, Pinehurst also throws in its famous Southern-style breakfast each morning and a three-course dinner every evening of your stay.
The Donald Ross Package starts at $692 per player through Feb. 28 (note: the Carolina Hotel will be closed Dec. 19 – Jan. 5). Playing the famed No. 2 requires a $125 surcharge, but it’s more than worth the add-on this time of year to experience the site of the 2024 U.S. Open (and 2029, 2035, 2041 and 2047).

Eco-Friendly Nomad Packable Duffel from Coalatree
Whether it be a trip to the gym or an outdoor adventure, the 22 L Nomad Packable Duffel allows you to take what you need and more. Constructed from durable reinforced nylon, it stuffs into its own pocket so you can travel with it easily. When it’s time to stash it, turn the interior pocket inside out. Then stuff the entire duffel into the pocket, and zip it closed. The duffle actually holds more than you think.
Peter Millar + Hoodies
Golf’s leading bespoke brand is getting into the hoodie game. At the top of the line is the cozy Excursionist Flex Popover Hoodie ($378), crafted in Europe with Italian Merino wool. It features a tailored fit with a dash of performance yarn to give it just enough stretch for playability.
Next up is the Crown Crafted Merino Waffle Hoodie ($248), a slightly more formal hoodie, if there is such a thing, with Merino wool sewn in a waffle knit pattern for a visibly comfy texture. And what’s a great hoodie without a pair of golf joggers? Peter Millar’s Apollo Performance Pants ($99) are available in navy blue and iron, and perfect for on- and off-course wear.
Radmor Golf Fall + Fall & Winter Collection
Saving the planet one piece of golf apparel at a time is an ambitious resolution. The Seattle-based golf apparel company is the only brand in the golf industry to eliminate the use of “virgin” polyester at the garment level – a harmful material used in the vast majority of “stretch” and “moisture wicking” fabrics.
In doing so, Radmor Golf says it has reduced the amount of recycled ocean polyester and recycled nylon to just 10 percent – almost unheard of in the apparel business. Instead, founders Scott Morrison and Bob Conrad rely primarily on BCI organic and extra-long-staple Pima cotton, two of the softest, most durable cottons available.
Radmor’s new fall and winter collection features a curated assortment of high-performance, refreshingly casual polo shirts, corduroy and knit pants and t-shirts in fall colors like sage and blue graphite. And as golfers battle the elements this winter, or just want to stay toasty, Radmor’s hoodies, sweatshirts are popular plays, and its weather-resistant Moscrip Jacket is perfect for rainy or blustery days.
PeakVision + GX6 + SL9
PeakVision’s Dual Zone lenses give golfers something they simply don’t get with any other eyewear: an upper zone for blocking harmful UV rays and a lower zone that elucidates green topography. If Neo and Trinity from the Matrix played golf, they’d wear “Peaks.” For the holidays and into 2022, the company is leaning hard into its GX6 ($127.50 on sale) and SL9 ($118.99 on sale) models.
The GX6 is made from aluminum-magnesium, a much lighter and more durable frame material. The frame’s temple pieces also feature rubberized technology for added gripping, spring hinges for added flexibility, and a fully adjustable nose bridge. SL9 features a fully adjustable hypoallergenic nose bridge for maximized performance and spring hinges for added flexibility.
