Golf suffers from “Country Club Syndrome”
The sport is perceived as an elitist hobby for affluent, middle aged white males. So it's not viewed as an accessible or exciting activity to a younger, more diverse generation. There are large entry barriers into golf that prevent kids from getting involved, ranging from the cost of golf clubs and driving ranges to introducing them to the sport itself.
Golfers tend to be introduced to the sport through their parents before the age of twelve, but there is a population of kids that are not being reached.
What if kids in urban areas could be introduced to golf without their parents worrying about the costs or logistics?
Lose the negative narrative of “Country Club Syndrome” and put kids at the forefront. Keeping costs low and not letting physical location get in the way, they can have fun while also exploring a new meaning of golf. We're taking golf outside of the course and into kids’ hands with a low cost beginners kit.
In recent years FILA has made a comeback in the homes of many, making it a trendy brand for some and nostalgic for others. Its youthful essence makes anyone want to join in on the fun. Titleist, a subsidiary of FILA, is renowned for its contribution towards the golf scene. Having the confidence that golf gear will last is key for any parent.
A New Golf Kit Every kid should have the opportunity to be introduced to something new and make it theirs.
We designed a new golf kit that addresses the limitations of urban areas such as space all while keeping the costs low without giving up good quality.

How it works A common concern for parents when buying something for their child is how long it will take for their child to outgrow something. Golf clubs can be an investment, so finding a way to help that was important.
We're introducing a way to detach club heads from the shaft, easily. When a child outgrows the club, instead of buying an entire new one, a new shaft would be the only new purchase. All while keeping costs down.
