Golf bags, shoes, and apparel are all items that a golfer may want and need, but they may have a personal preference when it comes to these items as well. Your best bet here may be a gift certificate at a golf store or proshop.
Stay away from any of golf gadgets, trinkets, items to hang on their bag, silly golf hats, etc. They probably have received similar items in past, and may no longer find these items as cute, or as humorous, second time around. Also avoid things like instructional books, videos, and swing trainers. They have already been exposed to most of these items, and not knowing their level of play, you really can't be sure if any of these items would even benefit their game.
So, what do you get them? A gift certificate for a round of golf at a course they would like to play, or regularly play, is a good gift. A gift certificate at a golf or pro shop that they can use for either lessons or equipment (balls, clubs, apparel, gloves, etc.) A golf trip to a well know resort is a great gift. Tickets to PGA event is also a great gift. They might also enjoy a good book on golf courses, golf history, golf stories, or on any one of many great players of game.
Of course, it all depends on your budget. The potential for gift ideas is endless. Golf is an extremely popular sport, and golfers worldwide are spending millions playing game. Any gift, appropriate for experienced player, would be welcomed, used, and enjoyed. (If it's RIGHT gift!.) Remember, it is thought that counts.
