For months now, we as golfers have been feeling so fortunate that our sport of choice has proven to be adaptable, even amidst a global pandemic. Each time I escape to the course, friends and family who have never expressed interest in golf before seem more and more interested in taking up the game. After all, with so much more down time, this is the perfect opportunity to learn something new.
Robin Golf is a direct-to-consumer one-stop-shop for men’s, women’s, and children’s golf clubs, and their overarching mission is to introduce new people to the game. In recent months, they’re seeing first hand how many new people are picking up the sport.
Co-founder, Ali Marler, said that their primary success metric from the time of their inception was to get net-new players into the game. In fact, since the start of the pandemic, over half of their sales have been comprised of women’s or kids clubs — a demographic that typically makes up only about 10% of sales industry wide.
The key to their success has been accessibility and approachability for beginners. You don’t need to know anything about the game, let alone equipment, to make a purchase from Robin Golf. Their clubs are simple, trendy and fun, and are meant for people trying out golf for the first time. Junior sets begin at $259 while adult sets cap out just below $700. Every set comes with all the clubs you need to get around a golf course, plus a bag and headcovers. If you or someone you know is looking to pick up a new activity, check out Robin Golf today.
