GOLPHIN LTD | GOLPHINFORKIDS

Scottish-based company Golphin Ltd has won this year’s prestigious HSBC Golf Business Forum Innovation Award for their unique golf club sets that have revolutionised the way children aged 3-11 play the game.


Established in 2013, Golphin Ltd, through their Golphinforkids product designs, have made phenomenal strides in a short period of time since launching at the Scottish Golf Show in 2014, becoming the official R&A coaching product for the Swingzone at the past two Open Championships and impressing the Titleist Performance Institute so much that they selected Golphinforkids clubs as the product of choice for their 15,000 coaches.

Of Golphin Ltd’s achievement, the R&A’s executive director, Duncan Weir, said: “The high-quality and versatile Golphinforkids kit is very impressive. It is certainly well-geared for getting youngsters into golf and helping to address the undoubted participation issues the sport is currently facing here in Great Britain and Ireland.
"Their product range is making a significant impact" - Duncan Weir

“Getting youngsters interested in playing sport is admirable and, within golf, many people are doing their very best. One such example is Golphinforkids, whose product range is making a significant impact.”

Active Schools Edinburgh, Active Schools Ayrshire, ClubGolf Scotland, Fife Golf Partnership and the Confederation of Golf Ireland have all invested in Golphinforkids to assist with their kids’ golf initiatives.

Golphinforkids was also the product chosen by ClubGolf Scotland for the 2014 Junior Ryder Cup kids golf event with some 2,800 kids experiencing a PGA demo of Golphinforkids at the event. Plans are now afoot to launch Golphinforkids to China at the Beijing Golf Show.

Michael Pask, senior vice president of IMG, said: “We would like to congratulate Golphin Ltd for standing out amid a number of very compelling entries to win this year’s HSBC Golf Business Forum Innovation Award.

“Golphin’s enthusiasm and creative approach to improving children’s golf equipment was demonstrated clearly through their presentation and submission and by partnering with the golf industry at an amateur and professional level they have undoubtedly made the game more appealing to juniors. Ultimately, our panel of experts from the world of finance, innovation and media were conclusive in crowning Golphin this year’s winner.”
