Black-owned Greenwood Golf balls now available through, Greenwood Golf becomes the first black-owned golf company to work with the global retailer

CHARLOTTE, NC – DECEMBER 16, 2022 – Christmas came early for Greenwood GOLF. It becomes the first black-owned golf company to work with the global retailer, WalMart. Golfers and their loved ones can now purchase, Greenwood GOLF balls and gloves from just in time for the Christmas holiday.

This achievement marks a major milestone for black-owned golf businesses. Most black-owned companies have been relegated to direct-to-consumer websites, making it hard for their brands to gain traction. Greenwood GOLF is blazing the trail to get their black-owned golf equipment and apparel on retail shelves everywhere.

When asked about it’s significance, the CEO, Chris Word states, “This is another example of why representation matters. Throughout the history of the game, golf appeared to be exclusive and off-limits for minorities. Having black-owned golf equipment and apparel available for consumers, is a significant step to achieving diversity, equity and inclusion.”

Greenwood GOLF will also be present at the 70th PGA Show in Orlando, Florida, January 24-27, 2023.

We invite PGA Show attendees to visit the Greenwood GOLF booth 2912 where they can meet the team and learn more about the golf ball and their mission.
