Around this time of year, a number of sources in the press will publish their best fathers day suggestions and we'd like to take a moment to jot a few items we are considering for the fathers of SEAMUS GOLF (or really just ourselves):

Hand Forged - This bottle opener is hand forged in Portland, Oregon of some of the finest metals we have ever seen.  The hand hammered copper rivet combined with leather lanyard add fantastic design touches.

Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old - While traveling to Cambridge for a recent graduation, we had the chance to taste this fine Islay Single Malt scotch at the end of a meal and some other alcoholic beverages.  The only thing we could remember is that we wished we had started with it...A later and more sober reassessment led us to the unanimous conclusion that the light, fresh dram is delightful for sharing with your father, or simply your dearest of friends.  

Smathers & Branson Traditional Needlepoint Belts - With numerous and fun color icons woven into the body of each belt, we have to say there must be something for everyone in this arrangement.  Our favorite, dare we say, has no tartan but a kick of humor with imagery from Caddyshack.

BILLYKIRK No. 255 Rucksack - If your father likes to carry his toys when traveling and wants a fashion forward style, this USA Made rig has masterfully blended elegance with fashion-forward style.  We've never seen or used it, but it looks pretty darn cool.

Recover Wooden iPhone Case - We love these wooden cases and have been enjoying the natural look since we had the rounded plastic back iPhones!  A number of high quality woods are available and shipping within just a couple of days.

Sony RX100 - Hands down the best compact camera with Digital SLR quality imagery.  Perfect for carrying in the golf bag, or just toting around to take pics.

Allen Edmonds - The Redan Golf shoes are hand-crafted in the USA using high-quality leather tanned and finished in the Horween Leather Factory.  Many have rumored that Ben Hogan wore a custom pair of Allen Edmonds at Merion in the famed photo.  Every one of the Presidents for the last 90 years have sported a pair of AE's, except for one, leading us to purposely misquote the famous golf commentator : Allen Edmonds are 'a tradition like none other.'  

And finally....

A trip to Cabot Links - After perusing the photo below, need we say ANY more?
