Golf’s original grip manufacturer was established in 1925 when company founder, Elver Lamkin, began crafting premium leather grips in the garage of his suburban Chicago home.
In the 1960s, under the direction of Elver’s son Robert E. Lamkin, the company began manufacturing leather and rubber hybrid grips and, eventually, synthetic rubber grips to provide golfers with a more affordable and consistent-feeling golf grip. Over the next three decades, Lamkin continued to be an industry pioneer with new material, manufacturing and texture innovations that provided players with a functional performance advantage.
Bob Lamkin, Elver’s grandson, has successfully continued the extraordinary legacy that began nearly a century ago with vast worldwide expansion that includes customers and factories in every corner of the world.
After more than 90 years, Lamkin is one of the most trusted and dependable brands in golf and a leading provider of golf grips to premium club manufacturers, Tour players, golf professionals and millions of worldwide golfers.
We believe in the unique passion that fuels a golfer’s ambitions. That same passion is shared by the Lamkin Corporation as we strive to continuously improve our own game.
We believe every Lamkin customer, whether purchasing a single grip or a million grips, is a fundamental contributor to our success. Exceeding their expectations will always be our highest priority.
We believe that every employee of the Lamkin organization is also an essential member of the Lamkin family. Their personal well-being should be treated with as much care and respect as any of their professional endeavors.
We believe in a relentless commitment to product research and development, ultimately yielding revolutionary grip innovations that provide players with a better golf experience.
We believe in an unfaltering devotion to exceptional quality that will never be compromised, diluted or overlooked.
We believe that honesty, integrity and authenticity should guide every relationship we form, every decision we make and every goal we pursue.
