After more than 90 years, Lamkin is one of the most trusted and dependable brands in golf and a leading provider of golf grips to premium club manufacturers, Tour players, golf professionals and millions of worldwide golfers.
Golf’s original grip manufacturer was established in 1925 when company founder, Elver Lamkin, began crafting premium leather grips in the garage of his suburban Chicago home.
In the 1960s, under the direction of Elver’s son Robert E. Lamkin, the company began manufacturing leather and rubber hybrid grips and, eventually, synthetic rubber grips to provide golfers with a more affordable and consistent-feeling golf grip. Over the next three decades, Lamkin continued to be an industry pioneer with new material, manufacturing and texture innovations that provided players with a functional performance advantage.
Bob Lamkin, Elver’s grandson, has successfully continued the extraordinary legacy that began nearly a century ago with a vast worldwide expansion that includes customers and factories in every corner of the world.
