I found this little golf bag lamp in two tone brown and beige...it had a dented base (is that a divot?) and that yellow brass base that didn't look very good- so (just like the other golfbag lamp) I covered it with astro turf. and then added three clusters of golf tees in the grass. 

I covered the repurposed drum shade I found with 3 panels of a tossed pattern in a golf them that looks like Bob and Bing at the golf course.... then edged it with a dark trim.   The bag has zippers for the pockets. 

After I finished, I went to a trophy shop and had a personalized nameplate made for it.  This gift was a huge hit for a retired golf lover!  Now i understand he just 'putters' around the house.  Sorry-- couldn't help it.
