It’s one of the weirdest things that affects dads the world over. They are obsessed by it. They spend a fortune on it. They play it in all weathers. No matter how poorly they fair, they come back week after week for more punishment. If you haven’t guessed already, it’s golf. A game invented by the Scots to create havoc with a man’s spirit, temper and good demeanor. Week after week, the dads attempt to pound a white little ball over great distances to reach a tiny hole delicately placed on a green carpet.
Along the way they are often quietly laughed at by fellow players for slicing the ball four fairways across. They can be attacked by magpies if they’re not looking, or worst still have the birds of carrion take off with their ball. Every hole is supposed to be a test of skill. More like a test of patience as they curse, wrap clubs around trees, try to dig themselves out of sand traps and generally have their blood pressure raised to an alarming level.
So for all the golfing dads out there, why not reward them this Father’s Day for their pure doggedness and determination to play one of the most frustrating games ever invented, with a real gift boxed trophy. Like something special from The Complete Basketcase. You could get the ball rolling with the Chalk Hill Clarendon Syrah gift box. Highly aromatic, this medium to full bodied wine is all class. Perfumed with layers of flowers, spice and red and dark fruits. Complex with a fine structure.
The Johns Blends Cabernet Sauvignon is made of sterner stuff showing rich, full-bodied character and classic Langhorne Creek chocolate and eucalypt characteristics. (the latter ingredient will certainly remind him of the golf course.) And if you think he’s on a bit of a roll with his game, you could double his spirits with a great duo. An expressive Gipsie Jack Sauvignon Blanc and a lively Gipsie Jack Shiraz.
At The Complete Basketcase, you’ll find just what you need for Fathers Day. Special gift boxed wine. It might not improve his game, but it will definitely lift his spirits. In addition, don’t forget our entire range of gift baskets and hampers are available with same day delivery to Melbourne Place your order before 1pm for Melbourne Metro to receive same-day delivery
