Golf In the Garden – 15 Gorgeous Golf-Themed Decorations for the House and Home.
By Hannah Birss

We’ve done a few Pinterest-themed blogs that focus on golf and home decoration (you can read them here and here) , but being that it is is the season for getting out in the backyard with a pair of gardening gloves and a hand trowel, we would be remiss in not dedicating a post to all the wonderful golf themed garden items you can use to create your perfect backyard oasis. So here they are – fifteen gorgeous golf-themed items for the backyard!

1. Now, I know that this supposed to be a flower. And really, it’ s a beautiful flower. I can just picture it surrounded by black eyed susan's or sunflowers. But honestly, every time I look at the flower, all I can think is that “It would be really cool if you could somehow make the club heads spin, like one of those little windmills they put in the drinks”.

Didn’t you know that the word summer in Spanish is “Sangria”? (I might have just made that up)

2. If you’re feeling a little more playful, you can create a very visually…interesting piece using your old bang upped golf clubs. With what looks like wire, a large bottle, and multi-coloured painted balls, you’ve got a sculptural piece that’s sure to get the neighbours talking.

I just want to pull on one and go “boing”. Repeatedly.

3. If your golf buddies and your garden buddies tend to run in the same circles, you can always put this lovely little sign out front when holding a barbecue or sangria party on the deck (all of my parties are sangria parties…but usually only for one). That way, you won’t have any non-golf savvy people crashing your party.

Y’know, I think I might actually buy that one. It just reeks of adorable.

4. This avian decoration is one with plenty of character – from her large, crazy eyes to her rockin’ eyelashes, to her brightly painted lips. She is definitely one bird that has gotten into the sangria bowl.

Honestly, after a bowl of sangria, I look pretty similar. Noticing a theme yet?

5. This next one isn’t so much a decoration as a really, really clever little gardening hack that I’m sure to use in my flower  bed, as well as in my onion and garlic beds. Using extra golf tees will help you mark where the bulbs are set so that you can easily set out a pattern and avoid digging them up in the future. Brilliant!

This is next-level brilliant, and perfect for the person who golfs as well as gardens.

6. Many people these days don’t live in houses with backyards – a lot of people, especially those getting on in their years, have moved on to apartment or condo living. But just because you’re limited in space doesn’t mean you can’t have a little micro garden or container garden, either on a balcony or in a sunny window. And if you do, why not kick your container garden up a notch with a tiny golf cart?

As miniature gardens go, this one is pretty perfect.

7. When it comes to garden décor, gazing balls have been making a very big comeback in the last few years – and these golfers have figured out a way to make a giant gazing ball that happens to look just like a giant golf ball on a tea – a wonderful contrast against the purple flowers and greenery in the background.

This is what you would call “crafty”.

8. This particular innovation that combines the love of golf with the love of gardening is one that is going to be implemented in my backyard immediately. A golf club bag is retired from the green and turned into a handy garden caddy with all the necessary implements. This is a pure stroke of genius, and I bow down to its inventor.

I needed this so badly yesterday.

9. Your backyard paradise wouldn’t quite be paradise without chirping birdsong to serenade you into sweet relaxation. To help entice the birds into your backyard for keeps, try putting out this sweet, rustic looking birdhouse that makes use of golf clubs, teas, and balls. It’s small, quaint, and unassuming but gets across the point that you are both a nature lover and a golf lover.

I’d live there.

10. Ouch! This planter bemoans the fate of everyone who ever decided to ignore their neighbour’s shout of “FORE!”.  It’s the perfect gift for that one person you keep accidentally hitting…

It’s like a chia pet, but for adults.

11. If you’ve got kids or grandkids, this next garden addition is perfect for a craft day – you can use up some of your old golf balls, the kids can have fun with paint and learning about garden ecology, and you’ll have a bunch of happy little ladybugs running around your garden.

Yes, but do they eat aphids?

12. If the above birdhouse wasn’t to your taste, you can always go a little more…overt with your love of the game. This birdhouse is completely decorated with golf balls – there’s no way anyone would ever be able to mistake it.

“Yeah honey, but do you think people will get it?”

13. If you look up “wreaths” on Pinterest, you’d know that there is a wreath for literally every occasion and every theme – bat mitzvah’s, new years, graduation, finding out exactly what in the fridge was giving off that awful stench – so it’s no surprise that there’s also one for the golf-lover.

In the case of a break-in, it can also be used as a weapon of defence.

14. Similar to the first entry in this post, this neat garden decoration uses old golf clubs to construct colourful flowers to brighten up an old fence or wall. It’s bright, cheery, and sure to make even the grouchiest of visitors smile.

Springtime, lollipops and rainbows…

15. When you’re finally done installing all these golf-themed decorations around your garden, you can finally sit back with that big ol’ bowl of sangria all to yourself, close your eyes, and listen to the last thing you whipped up before you sat down – beautiful golf club-windchimes.

Ahhhh, perfection. Sangria not pictured.
