GolPhin, with its global headquarters based in Scotland, provides a holistic approach all designed to inspire kids towards discovering the virtues of golf. With a particular focus on kids aged 3 to 14, GolPhin has developed an innovative 5 Pillared service offering to help PGA instructors, golf facilities and governing bodies “Inspire Golf’s Next Generation”.
Founder and CEO Calum McPherson, a former scratch golfer with a business background in aerospace manufacturing, stumbled across the difficulties of introducing young children to golf when he tried to introduce his own kids Carla and Ben in to the game when they were just 8 and 6.
They hated it - the clubs were too heavy, they found it boring, their friends weren’t interested and the golf course wasn’t a kids friendly environment. So Ben and Carla very politely asked their dad to take them to back to the football, the athletics and the dance classes where they could have fun playing with their friends - sound familiar ?
That was back in 2010, since then Calum and his highly enthusiastic and talented TEAM at GolPhin has created a suite of solutions to help make change happen.
Step 1 was to tackle equipment. Applying his wealth of experience from his previous business that transitioned from a golf club head manufacturing in the 70’s and 80’s to a high tech aerospace design and manufacturing partner to Boeing and Airbus, Calum designed and developed the worlds first aerospace engineered golf clubs for kids. In partnership with Europe’s leading engineering university, guidance from The R&A and input from a group of PGA professionals, GolPhin’s products are now enjoyed by 10’s of thousands of kids all over the world and are the product of choice for various organisations across the globe including Golf Australia, Leadbetter Academies, PGA of Germany and Scottish Golf.
Additionally, Pillars 2,3,4 and 5 have been added, following a seven figure sum invested over the past 4 years. Resulting in GolPhin’s offerings of Education seminars and webinars, world class schools golf programmes, a digital platform for junior golfers and TEAM orientated competition, all geared towards “Inspiring Golf’s Next Generation”
