    What is different about Golphin clubs?

    Golphin integrates a revolutionary clubhead design that gets the golf ball up in the air very easily.  A larger, lightweight clubhead with a big sweetspot and wider grooves all assist to get the ball flying through the air .  Combined with a flexible, lightweight shaft, Golphin clubs are the best option for beginner golfers!

      Where can I buy Golphin clubs?

      Golphin clubs are available at PGA pro shops and online through www.golphin.com.  You can find a local PGA pro near you who carries the Golphin line on our website.

        What age should my child start playing golf?

        It is never too early to get a golf club in a child’s hands, even if it is a plastic toy club.  Typically a three year old has the strength to swing a Golphin club.  It is a good idea to start them with plastic or foam golf balls before going to the real thing.  Your PGA Professional is the ideal person to assist with getting your child into golf.

          What size clubs should I get for my child?

          Golphin utilizes a chart that determines the size of clubs based on a child’s height.  Please consult with your PGA Professional to determine the proper sized clubs for your child.

            How many clubs does my child need?

            A beginner, especially a young child, only needs a few basic clubs to start.  The essential clubs are a putter, a wedge, a low iron (7, 8 or 9) and a fairway wood that can be used also as a driver.  As the golfer grows and improves, more clubs can be added starting with a hybrid wood, a mid iron (5 or 6) and a sand wedge.  Your PGA Professional will assist you with your proper club set.

              What is the difference between a conforming and non-conforming club?

              The USGA determines whether a club conforms to the rules of golf and can be used for competitions.  The design/width of the grooves on a clubface is one of the determining factors.  Golphin beginner clubs are designed to help the player learn the game, not to compete in tournaments.  When the player is ready to compete in events, they can graduate to Golphin’s conforming clubs.

                When does my child need conforming clubs?

                A child should graduate to conforming clubs when they are ready to compete in tournaments that require conforming clubs.  This age is different for every player.  Consult with your PGA Professional to determine whether your child is ready for tournaments that require conforming clubs.

                  How can I help donate Golphin clubs to kids who need them?
