These are inexpensive items, but well received, so make sure you have enough for all golfers.
Golf First Aid Kit
It is a nice touch to offer each golfer a golf first aid kit that includes a ranch of items, such as insect repellant, golf tees, antibacterial wipes, bandage strips, aloe, sunscreen, etc. Place this as a gift directly on the golf cart of each player. With these items in hand on the course, they just might avoid that nasty sunburn or mosquito bite before the big raffle.

A great prize option for golf outings is to award a golf putter to the top scoring golfer or the winner of the longest drive contest. When considering golf putters, research for a top quality golf putter. Many options exist but look for a putter with a strong brand name, such as Scotty Cameron (Titleist), TaylorMade, or Ping.
Table Tennis Racket
Golf tournaments frequently offer a consolation prize to the team or individual with the highest golf score. And although the Prince table tennis racket may be a great item for those who enjoy table tennis, it could serve as a nice consolation prize for those who achieve the highest score.
