We're pretty sure they're not USGA approved, but if you simply want to go out and enjoy a round or five of golf without needing to venture into the fairways and forest surrounding your hole, pick up a pack of Polara Ultimate Straight Golf Balls ($25-$35). Thanks to the company's Self Correcting technology that incorporates different sizes and depths of dimples, these WonderBalls™ correct slices and hooks by up to 75 percent and up your enjoyment of the game by at least as much.

It might be July, but summer's far from over — which means you'll still have plenty of chances to enjoy this Regulation Bocce Ball Set ($60). This official, meticulously crafted set includes four oxblood and four navy blue balls, one target ball — also known as the "Pallina" — a leather measuring device, and complete instructions, all of which arrive in a handsome crate with rope handles and brass hardware, making it something you can display even when the weather won't let you play.
There are few things quite as irritating as gathering up a group of friends for some quality hoops only to discover that your ball has gone flat as a pancake. With the Spalding Neverflat Basketball ($30), that's not a problem. Featuring new technologies like a membrane designed to improve pressure retention and repel air mixture molecules, NitroFlate molecules injected into the ball to form a protective barrier against air seepage, and a specially designed valve with cap, the Neverflat is guaranteed to go at least a year between fill-ups, and is available in outdoor or composite leather versions.
