The Lamkin Corporation was founded in 1925 by Elver B. Lamkin in Chicago, Illinois. As the industry’s first producer of leather golf grips, Lamkin quickly became the leading and preferred grip choice for the premium club manufacturers.

In the 1960s, under the leadership of Robert E. Lamkin, the company began producing rubber and synthetic rubber grips to provide golfers with a more consistent and affordable grip option. The company continued to revolutionize the golf grip industry with new material, texture and manufacturing innovations that provided players with a functional performance advantage.

After 90 years, the Lamkin Corporation is one of the most trusted, dependable brands in golf and the leading provider of golf grips to premium club manufacturers, as well as Tour Players, Tour Professionals and millions of golfers around the world.
