Golf Refugees - A new perspective on golf

Golf Refugees is one of the first of a new breed of indie golf brands from California. With a new attitude towards golf, they've begun to shock the industry.

Their appearance has coincided with the publishing of two alternative golf magazines. Schwing in the US and Putt in the UK. Combined, they offer a fresh outlook on the sport of golf, one that is nothing short of edgy.

Golf Refugee's radical black golf ball was first featured on Channel 4's Big Breakfast and then in numerous style/fashion/golf magazines.

GQ USA described them as "the irreverent brainchild of some wise-assed Gen-MTV British lads who are subverting golf's stuffy country-club image"

Other brands and magazines have since followed suit. Have a look at their website ( and decide for yourself. Let us know what you think.
