For The Golfer in Your Life
If you are shopping for something you can wrap, Barton Creek Resort & Spa has a gift list unlike any other. The Crenshaw Proshop at Barton Creek recently acquired the rights to an exclusive display representing the Tiger Woods lifestyle. Barton Creek is one of only five golf proshops in the world to have this display, and the merchandise rivals any upscale retailer. Give the man in your life a Tiger Woods brand polo shirt, which can be worn on or off the course; these polos are made of luxury cotton and spectacular colors, $85 – $100. Also found in this elite Tiger Woods lifestyle line are Tag Heuer Swiss watches; these precision time pieces begin at $800.

The Crenshaw Proshop also carries many lines of women’s golf apparel that cannot be found in retail outlets. Noted golf instructor with Barton Creek’s Chuck Cook Golf Academy, Barbara Puett, favors the Canadian line, Lija. The quilted jackets, Bermuda shorts and rich colors draw attention off the course as well as on. The selections are too numerous to list and must be seen.

If you have a serious golfer on your shopping list, consider a custom Edel putter. The Chuck Cook Golf Academy at Barton Creek is one of only four golf resorts in the world with this revolutionary putter fitting system and the only place in the world with the left-handed fitting components. There are 18 million different combinations of specifications for one Edel putter, the choice of many golf pros. Price starts at $375.

Need a stocking stuffer? How about Barton Creek logo golf balls for that special golfer? Give a Titleist NXT Tour Sleeve of Barton Creek logo golf balls, $8.50.
