Golf Pride® has successfully built its premium brand based on quality and innovation. Unfortunately, that success attracts a growing number of counterfeiters who offer fake Golf Pride products primarily thru websites and internet auctions. We are working hard to stop these counterfeiters.
Golf Pride has collaborated with golf industry partners and governments worldwide to prevent the flow of counterfeit products at borders and halt production at its source. Golf Pride’s global task force has dedicated itself to the anti-counterfeiting mission, developing programs and methods to help stop counterfeiting through education and training of customs groups, law enforcement, distributors and customers.
Counterfeit products provide golfers an inferior performance and durability compared to authentic Golf Pride grips. Golf Pride’s R&D experts have found that counterfeit products have extreme weight variations and utilize low quality compounds that produce inconsistent performance, increased torque, and reduced durability.
The best way to avoid counterfeit products is to always purchase products from Golf Pride’s authorized distributors or retailers.
If you have reason to suspect that you’ve purchased or seen a counterfeit product or if you have an issue with the quality of your grip, please notify Golf Pride’s counterfeit team using the contact form below.
