Ben Sayers started from humble beginnings, carrying out club repairs and making golf balls by hand from a lean-to shed adjacent to the 18th tee at North Berwick Golf Club, which was to become Ben’s first shop.
It was from this shed that he started to acquire a reputation as a golf club manufacturer and innovator, even making a set of clubs for King Edward VII as far back as 1902!
Ben was also a highly acclaimed golfer himself and was particularly renowned for his match play abilities, playing high-stakes matches against the best golfers of his day. He played in 33 Open Championships and had 12 top 10 finishes, playing his last Open at the age of 67.
The Ben Sayers brand has a fantastic reputation for creating revolutionary pieces of golf equipment, including the original gutta-percha balls, the ‘Benny’ putter (the first to have a square-edged grip), the first set of carbon-shafted clubs and the first ‘oversized’ driver. Ben Sayers even made a putter for Jack Nicklaus during the 1970s.
Today, Ben Sayers continues to manufacture a range of high-quality clubs, golf bags, trolleys and accessories and supplies them all over the world.
2020 was clearly a very difficult year worldwide but golf offered many people a refuge from the challenging times they were experiencing.
We were proud to be able to support our loyal customers, whilst inspiring many new and existing players to get out on the course and despite the demanding circumstances we were able to double our sales turnover from the previous year!
Although the Ben Sayers brand is renowned for our high-quality package sets, there is much more to the range, and we are now one of the leading electric trolley brands, due to our trolleys’ ability to offer exceptional value and performance.
Our 18-hole lithium electric trolley was one of our leading performers in 2020 and we hope to continue building our market share in this sector in 2021.
There are a number of new additions to our 2021 product range. We are pleased to introduce our new XS Cart Bags to the range, which offer a range of premium features at an incredibly reasonable price.
We have also introduced two new 6” Stand Bag colourways. Another key focus of our range is our ladies golf offering. We are very excited to introduce our brand new XF Pro Ladies Series for 2021, which includes two premium putters, three wedges and two hybrids, which will build on our already extensive ladies product range, which includes package sets, bags, trolleys and rangefinders. Further details on our ladies golf range can be found within our catalogue.
