Golf Area Rug
A Golf Area Rug for the Golfer in Your Life
When you've run out of gift ideas, consider getting a golf area rug for the golf lover in your life. There are plenty of different golf area rugs out there that would make perfect gifts for your golfing aficionado.
You can find both hand hooked and machine woven rugs with golfing motifs: golf players, golf clubs, golf balls, and golf greens. Some have an old fashioned club house feel to them while others are more whimsical and bring to mind the thought, "I'd rather be golfing."
If your golf lover loves Jack Nicklaus, consider buying a Shaw rug in his collection. Jack Nicklaus rugs are 100% New Zealand wool and machine made. They look great with details such as abrashing woven in. Abrash is what happens naturally in hand knotted rugs when the dyes used to color the wool aren't 100% identical across the life of a rug's construction. What will happen are subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) variations across the rug as different dye lots are used to finish the rug.
An area rug with a golf motif looks great in a man's office, a den, or a pool room. Other sports rugs that look good in boys' rooms include footballs, soccer balls, or hockey. If you don't think you want a large golf rug in your living room, consider getting a smaller throw rug with a golf motif that would work at the entrance way in from the garage, back door or even front door. A number of golfing rugs are made in a comfort mat finish meant for indoor/outdoor use with a comfort layer of foam sandwiched by a polyester finish.
