Seamus Golf, a woolen accessories company based in Oregon, USA, has developed a way to bring style to one’s golf bag: tartan woolen headcovers.

The idea was the brainchild of Akbar Chisti, an accountant by trade. “About 18 years ago, my dad brought me back one of these tartan headcovers from Royal Troon,” Chisti said. His wife Megan, who was experienced in design and woolen products, made some headcovers for Chisti and his friends. “It was really her who got us to where we are today,” Chisti said. “She’s got a good design aesthetic.”

The company has since enjoyed a meteoric rise in the golf accessories business, particularly in America where their headcovers have been carried in clubs like Bandon Dunes and Chambers Bay.

“Where we’ve done real well is with this new era of links-style golf courses,” he said. “These golfers, when they go to Europe, are used to seeing locally-made tartan headcovers. Then they see ours and the quality supercedes what they’ve seen. We’ve taken the construction and design very seriously, so we don’t have a cover that falls apart.”

In great news for links lovers Down Under, Aussies can now get their hands on these vintage classics thanks to Jack Oliver Golf, distributors of TRUE Linkswear and Asher Golf.

“At Jack Oliver Golf, we love brands that like to challenge the status quo, which is why we love Seamus Golf, and are thrilled to be adding them to our stable in Australia,” says Sam Boden, marketing director at Jack Oliver Golf.

“Seamus are a team of Oregon-based artisans who’ve built a cult following in the US for their range of exceptionally crafted headcovers, created from only the finest tartan wools. Beautifully blending traditional European inspirations with modern lines and simplicity, Seamus headcovers are hand-crafted to represent each individual golfer, their passion for the game, and their distinct style.”
