The humble beginnings of Seamus Golf were really a perfect storm of elements that ultimately came together beautifully to create their tried and true golf head covers. Seamus Golf co-owners, Megan & Akbar Chisti, combined Akbar’s desire for traditional yet functional tartan head covers inspired from European golf shops and courses, along with Megan’s array of experience in design, sewing, woolen products, and her precise attention to detail. Using a golf headcover from Royal Troon that Akbar had received as a gift from his father over 10 years prior as inspiration, Megan was able to ingeniously design and produce a few prototype headcovers for her husband and his friends to use while golfing together. Not only were the head covers unique, clean, simple, and beautiful, they featured locally milled tartan wools as well as bright, durable fleece linings. After a few rounds with these head covers, Megan & Akbar knew that they were onto something. A short time later, Megan used her design aesthetic and skills to create the current line-up of Seamus Golf headcovers and accessories. A keen entrepreneur, businessman, and trained accountant, Akbar was able to create an online retail storefront as well as develop wholesale relationships with some of the finest golf clubs around the country. Seamus Golf is proud to thank Bandon Dunes for their early support and belief in our handcrafted headcovers.
