Club Glove USA offers a variety of lightweight and heavy-duty gear – golf travel bags, rolling duffels, carry-ons, and specialty luggage like travel kits – that are relied upon by golfers and travelers alike. With products made in the U.S., Club Glove is also renowned as the producer of the number one luggage on the PGA TOUR.
Club Glove USA is a company under the umbrella of West Coast Trends, Inc. which was founded in 1990 after entrepreneur and avid golfer Jeffrey Herold had the idea for a neoprene cover to protect golf club heads, an invention he aptly named The Club Glove.
The product quickly became a popular option with golfers at every skill level. Following the success of The Club Glove, Herold spent almost a year designing what would become known as the “Last Bag’ and was later named one of the “top 10 innovations in golf over the last 20 years” by Golf Digest.
“We found a niche in the golf industry, and that is providing outstanding travel gear to get us to our desired golf destination,” Herold said. “And we’re a small company that is actually more like a small family, so I’d give credit to everyone here for [our] success.”
Club Glove says its products are used by over 90% of professional golfers on all U.S. tours combined. In addition, almost every U.S. Ryder Cup team has used Club Glove products in some capacity since 1997.
Customers who purchase Club Glove luggage are also eligible for a five year “No Questions Asked” warranty option, on top of its standard product warranty, for its travel bag line. Customers simply return the damaged item and if Club Glove can’t repair the damage, the entire product will be replaced for free.
Club Glove uses a woven nylon fabric (Invista Cordura 100 D Nylon) that’s three times more durable than standard polyester, twice as strong as standard nylon, and features a water-resistant polyurethane back coating. Club Glove products also utilize premium hardware – durable YKK zippers and high-quality molded buckles and hardware – as well as a signature riveting pattern that enhances the strength of handle attachments. In addition, the company’s soft cushion skate wheels and bearings provide a smooth ride and soft feel.
While golf luggage is the prime component of Club Glove’s business, the California-based company also sells golf accessories – from head covers, club protectors, and caddie towels, to golf gloves, ball markers, and divot tools.
Even as some companies struggled in the wake of Covid, Club Glove has remained steady over the past few years. This speaks to the quality of the product as well as Club Glove’s positioning in the industry as the company has been able to build strong relationships with customers over the past couple of decades.
As destination golf and buddies’ trips have become such a staple of the game, Club Glove has established a strong and stable foothold in its sector of the industry.
