“Some things in life take years to perfect, others are available to see you get there”

With a consistent balance of creativity, simplicity & the forward thinking of the Ahead brand, there is no doubt you will find performance, comfort & enjoyment in every product you acquire. With valuable experience in the branding department the options are endless in terms of customization and personality of your private or corporate logos on golf shirts, caps and a whole lot more.

It is available all within one brand, from simple things that get you around the golf course like Pitchforks and Ball Markers to showing off where you’ve been with Bag Tags and Headwear. It can simply even make a statement with the advanced materials in golf equipment, particularly the Apparel lines & golf shirts.

Ahead was founded in 1995 by Mr. Ken Shwartz. Over the past 15 years, the Company has been able to capitalize on the golfing industry’s desire for specialized high-quality graphics on headwear and garments and the brand-conscious nature of those who frequent golf shops.

As Ahead has gained popularity and become recognized as the headwear choice in the golfing industry, golf stars Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Gary Player have chosen Ahead as the designer and manufacturer for their specialized headwear. In addition, the Company is utilizing stars like Retief Goosen, Tim Clark Jim Furyk, Aaron Baddeley, Charles Howell III, Luke Donald and Sean O’Hair to promote its products.

Ahead (then as Ahead Headgear) was founded and conceived in response to the lack of a dominant brand in the golf headwear segment. Prior to the Company’s founding, this segment was characterized by uniformity and featured little creativity or excitement. Most of the golf hats created prior to 1996 consisted of a logo and a few other graphics.

The Company’s success has not gone unnoticed, as the Company is proud to have been recognized recently by ING as the recipient of their first place award for Product Ingenuity for Emerging Companies, and by Inc. Magazine as the #1 Inner City Company in the United States.
