About GolPhin

GolPhin is a Scotland based company that designs and manufactures innovative kids golf clubs with a focus on beginners aged between 3 and 12 years old. Inspiring the next generation of golfers.

The company has a passion, ethos and principles all focused on providing kids with an enjoyable, fun filled and confidence-building learning experience when they are introduced to golf. Making golf fun and easier to learn resulting in a properly developed swing and technique from the very beginning. 

Founder and CEO Calum McPherson, a former scratch golfer, was inspired to help more kids get in to golf when he experienced the frustrations of his own kids struggling to enjoy the game. This was largely down to the inappropriateness of the equipment with golf clubs that were too heavy for the kids to swing without loss of balance. 

Adopting the principles of his experiences working in the aerospace industry, Calum created prototypes and had these independently benchmarked with traditional junior clubs at Strathclyde University’s biomechanical department. The results validated that traditional kids golf clubs caused kids to lose balance, lose control of the club leading to frustration and in most cases leaving the sport for easier activities. 

The Results of Benchmark Testing

 

With successful testing in place, GolPhin launched its beginner focused clubs in 2014, the GFK. The aerospace alloy composition makes the club weight 30% lighter than traditional junior clubs helping kids to perfect a great swing - and when combined with lowered weight distribution and high flight grooves, kids can enjoy seeing their golf ball sail through the air more often, resulting in more fun and more engagement with the game.

WINNER / BEST JUNIOR CLUBS Golf Digest 2016 and 2017
