Every spring, some Atlantans come down with golf fever, whether watching or attending the Masters this week or hitting the links as the temperatures get warmer.
Some Atlanta-area homes are built on golf courses, creating a natural tie-in to accessorizing with golf-themed items. But no matter you live, don’t putt around with your outdoor space. These unique items for all price ranges are options for the outdoors — and for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gifts.
The golf clubs and golf ball motif pay homage to a golfer’s essentials in an unusual way and the fountain joins a few other statues and planters with golf themes at Four Seasons Pottery in Sandy Springs. Fountain retails for $200. www.4seasonspottery.com
Folks attending the Masters can buy merchandise such as a pin flag, but other companies have garden flags with a golf look. Some retailers and websites, such as Personalization Mall, monogram their flags by adding a family’s initial and address, for example. The Golf Pro Monogram Personalized Garden Flag can be used along walkways or other areas in the yard. The flag (17 1/4 inches by 12 1/2 inches) retails for $15.95 (stand is extra). www.personalizationmall.com
Another option, which you can find at home improvement stores and online, is a doormat with a golf motif. Personalization Mall also monograms doormats, which have a non-skid rubber backing. The doormat (18 inches by 27 inches) retails for $18.35. www.personalizationmall.com
Jeff Diamond takes golf clubs headed for the trash and turns them into sculptures that are displayed in homes and at events, including the Masters. Old golf gear is reused to create indoor items such as lamps and tables. Outdoor pieces include benches, wall medallions and even small and giant spheres. Diamond’s creations include a sphere made of equipment, including shafts ($395), a bench of club heads ($995, available in several colors), a wall medallion made of clubs ($1,195) and a sphere made of club heads measuring 34 inches in diameter ($2,900). www.OnTourGolfWear.com
This small, whimsical birdhouse, shaped like a golf bag, is made of polyresin. Retails for $29.99, manufactured by Massachusetts-based Spoontiques. www.spoontiques.com
