One of my more popular sayings on this site is “Look Good Play Good”, and while sometimes I throw it around as a joke, I do truly believe that if you dress well you will have more confidence and therefore play better. GolfSark is a great new company, taking the classic polo look of this game we love and adding a fun twist to it. If you are tired of the same old golf shirts, GolfSark is for you, they take golfer inspired designs and make fun polo’s for the course.
A little about GolfSark taking from their website…..
“Founder and CEO, Gary Hokkanen, has been a non-professional golfer for the past 40 years. His closet is stocked with golf shirts; mementos from golfing around the country. Although Gary was fond of his collection, he knew something was missing… shirts that made a statement.
Founder and Creative Director, Randall Strauss, has been playing golf since the age of six. Randall was part of his high school’s four time state champion team in the late eighties and still plays every chance he gets. Over the past 15 years, Strauss has created and produced advertising for the world’s largest golf companies. He now puts all his energy into making golfSark a major player in the golf apparel industry. Strauss runs golfSark’s East coast office.
golfSark is a California based retailer that is passionate about originally designed, embroidered golf shirts. We only sell the shirts that you love. Designers submit custom designs, you vote for your favorites and we sell the top rated shirts.”
As you can see there is a lot of Golf experience with the GolfSark team and you can tell they are going to make a statement in the golf world just by visiting their website, it is professional and geared toward providing quality products. Now on to the shirts, GolfSark takes Sport Tek high quality moisture wicking golf shirts and adds a fun twist to them, with different logo’s or designs that you can find below. The shirt Gary sent me was the over the “Shoulder Shot” shirt, which has a golfer on the back shoulder hitting a ball, and the ball landing near the flag on the front shoulder. The shirt is definitely an attention grabber and a frequent topic of conversation at the course, people are always asking where they can get one, now they know. The coolest thing about GolfSark in my opinion is you can submit your own designs, if you have a fun idea for a golf inspired logo or design on a shirt, you can submit it through their website and they will do their best to design it for you. All the designs are embroidered on the shirt and not screen printed like other companies, the embroidery is quality and won’t fall off or peel off like screen printed shirts on the market.
Overall these are quality shirts, they are actually made by the same manufacturer that makes the AGG logo’d shirts, the shirts have fun designs but also keep you cool on the hottest of days. I think GolfSark has a winner with these shirts!
