When we're not hiking, flying in the skies or camping in the country side, we at Cockpit USA like to venture out on golfing expeditions using only US made equipment. Established in 1974 by the late Elmore Just, the Louisville Golf Company is a pioneering force in the use of persimmon wood for the manufacture of golf clubs. After extensive research and development, the Kentucky based golf specialists found the weight, hardness and rebound characteristics of persimmon not only made it ideal for making clubs, but also superior to metal 'woods' in terms of precision. The hand crafted clubs can be tailor made for individual golfers and engraved for an added personal touch. Alongside their high quality contemporary equipment, Louisville Golf Club Co. also manufacturer the world's finest, fully useable Hickory-shafted golf clubs for a golfing experience reminiscent of the late 19th and 20th century era. Of course, to go with your American made clubs should be an American made jacket such as the light weight and handsome Cockpit USA All Cotton '100 Mission' jacket.
