From the careful selection of prime persimmon blocks, right through to the final inspection of the finished head, nothing is left to chance. Persimmon is nature's gift to golf - there is no compromise, only the best will do.
In direct contrast to mass-produced metal 'woods', our clubs are lovingly created by real people in real time. From start to finish, each head is handled by skilled craftsmen over 200 times during the six week production.
Nothing compares with persimmon for that elusive balance of distance, accuracy and feel. The pronounced gear effect of a persimmon head ensures superior accuracy, whilst playability and control are legendary.

Who makes our clubs?
Charlie & Team
Persimmon Head Crafters
Charlie and his fellow craftsmen, commence by skilfully cutting the persimmon blocks, then installing the sole-plate, face insert and aluminium ferrule. Meticulous sanding, line-cut scoring and staining is followed by several applications of a clear protective coating to complete the finished head.

Having worked along side many of the World's great players, including Ian Woosnam and Seve Ballesteros, Kevin is a passionate advocate of our clubs, ensuring that every Persimmon Golf order is assembled to the same exacting standards, perfectly balanced and ready to perform.
Our traditional head-covers are made entirely by hand, thanks to our friend, Craftsman and Saddlemaker Mark Roche, from his workshop deep in Wales. Using only hides sourced from the best British tanneries, each head-cover is fully lined, and embroidered with the club number and Persimmon Golf logo.

Modern day performance
If you are worried that you will lose performance with Persimmon golf clubs then don't be. When struck well the flight is low and powerful, the feel is sensational and you can genuinely control the shape of your shot. Performance with soul.
The word 'persimmon' is iconic, but the golf world has been led to believe that wooden heads cannot compete with technology-led metals. I can tell you this is simply not the case! Fitted with the modern shaft, Persimmon Golf's drivers are competitive off the tee, whilst the shape and dynamics of the fairway woods cut through the rough better than any metal equivalent or rescue club.
After years of using 'modern technology' it was refreshing to be hitting your persimmon headed woods, and discovering there is no loss of performance in overall shot result. I found the fairway woods most impressive, as I could work the ball and still obtain the distances I require. I would recommend to anyone!

OK I love this Persimmon Golf 3 wood - it arrived today! Waited until par 5 sixth to hit her........par 5 only 500 yards. #3 wood struck perfectly off tee, middle fairway, followed by another off the deck to 15 feet....two putts birdie. I hit it twice more and so far I have hit four sensational shots...what a lovely thing... goes a mile too!!! Well 250 yards, which is ample. So happy.

The look, feel and performance of Persimmon Golf's T-Classic driver and V-Classic fairway woods are exceptional. They allow me to shape the ball in a way that is impossible with metal drivers and fairway woods. These are definitely my golf clubs of choice.

Persimmon Golf's woods are timeless. Striking these clubs from the centre, they perform just as well as today's fairway woods with the added advantage of the V-shaped sole which cuts through tough lies so much better than today's equivalent. When coaching with EGO, our clients are always surprised at just how easy it is to strike the ball as well as with the latest metal woods and how much more explosive they are from the rough.

My feedback concerning my last order (T-Classic driver) - simply fantastic!!! No vibration, great control and distance. I've proceeded with an order for two fairway woods. PS- After the tee-shot with my new T-Classic, the player following said 'Wow, double wow - is it a persimmon driver? I can't believe it!!!' Great satisfaction!!

What the press say
The clubs are produced to an amazing quality of finish and really are very eye catching out on the course. If you love the feel of soft timber combined with just a little bit of history, these could be right up your street. They are a fantastic gift for anybody who loves the game.
This beautifully finished head certainly caught the eye in the Golf Monthly office - there was no argument that the feel and feedback were fantastic. An ideal choice for those looking for something different.
National Club Golfer
I caught my first attempt right out of the screw- and experienced a feel I'd forgotten existed in golf. With a bit of skill, these clubs can make the ball go round corners. Hit one out of the meat and it will go as well as your best shot with a 460cc titanium.
Golf Punk Magazine
Voted 'Most Wanted'. With it's 240cc head, it's much more forgiving than a traditional persimmon wood, yet it retains the sweet sound and feel that only persimmon can offer.
From Tree to Green
The journey starts with the persimmon tree, grown in
the central States of America and long-recognised as
the most perfect material for the finest drivers and fairway woods.
Throughout a process over several weeks they go from tree to green.
