After some 30-plus years in the golf business, a retired Greg Hopkins sat down to dinner one night with family and friends. The discussion soon turned to the evolution of the golf industry. Specifically, the group chatted about golf's changing retail landscape, true customization that only Tour pros experience, and the advent of direct "manufacturer to consumer" distribution that offers a better value to end users. Not your typical table topics. But from that conversation, the seeds of Hopkins Golf were sowed.
With encouragement from his wife, Linda, and several serendipitous conversations with key partners along the way, Greg founded Hopkins Golf with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: Providing amateur golfers a way to create their own custom clubs the same way Tour players do - at a fair price. Plus, he wanted to make it easy for golfers to try the clubs on the course and then be able to return them, if they didn't exceed expectations.
This is how we're doing it: You design the clubs right on our website and order them directly from us at a great price, instead of buying them at traditional retail stores. Plus, you receive your clubs quickly and Hopkins Golf has an easy, hassle-free return policy.
We're only making wedges -- for now. But who knows what'll result from Greg's next dinner get-together?
