At Golfers Authority, we stand for the players who truly love the game of golf.  The player that wakes up early to get out to the course before work, or goes out on the weekend with their family or friends. The player that takes their children to the driving range, or plays a round of golf to bond with their mother or father. The player who simply wants to improve their game and to enjoy the beautiful game of golf.

We stand for these players, because at Golfers Authority we are these players! Golfers Authority is made by Golfers for Golfers.
