The distinction between manufacturing clubs and assembling them was not lost on PING inventor Karsten Solheim more than 40 years ago. Nor is it today. The family-owned company prides itself on closely controlling the entire clubmaking process.
We begin in design and engineering where new ideas are tested every day with the goal to design the perfect custom-fit golf club.
Those ideas become a reality when molds for clubheads are machined, then transferred to the foundry for investment casting. Next they are heat treated, then on to assembly for component matching and personalization.
From engineering to investment casting to calibration of every club bearing the PING name, quality is assured at every phase. PING is ISO-9001-2000 & 14001 certified, a worldwide standard for quality assurance and environmental systems. Best known in the aerospace industry, this certification means we've raised another standard. Our own.
