Over the past year my wife and I have purchased two new sets of clubs. She got the Adams A7OS and I got the some Clevelands CG7's. Noticed that both had stickers on them saying "Made in China". If I wanted to support both American Based Companies and their American Made golf products which do I have to choose from anymore?

Lots of clubs are assembled in the US from American, Japanese, and Chinese components.  Even most grip manucturing plants are out of the USA.  

Aside from some putter manufacturers, Louisville Golf may be the only clubhead manufacturer still in the USA at this point.  Even most of the Ping heads are outsourced internationally.

Why is this relevant in the scheme of golf? Are you looking for high quality products? Because made in the USA can still be some Crappy golf equipment. but Mizuno and Scratch seems to be making great products even though it's not made in the US.

He didn't say it was relevant to golf.  He specifically said he wanted to support North American companies.

from what I've seen from labels on golf equipment, a lot of things are assembled in one country, all materials are manufactured in another.  It's gonna be difficult to find a complete set assembled and all material produced in the USA.

A few years ago my boss was invited to Phoenix to check out Pings plant.  They still (or at least used to), manufacture all irons here.  All woods/hybrids are outsourced.  Love when we get a shipment of cobras in that say head-china, shaft-china, assembled-USA!

I thought that ping out-sourced the irons with multi-materials [rapture, s-57, i15] and the g15's were the only current line still made in the US foundry.

Beat me to it. While quality is an important factor, I just wanted to spend the most of my $$$ to support American jobs. I know a ton of stuff is assembled in the States. I do not even what to start thinking about all the supporting equipment like balls, gloves, shoes & clothes... can of worms I have opened. Sorry.

Thanks to the EPA, anything that's titanium is made in Japan or China.  TM, Nike, Cally, Adams, etc. are all made China with some things assembled here.  Hell, I heard that Ping is now casting all their clubs in China.

The only US made clubs I know of are milled putters by SC, Bettinardi, Machine, etc.

Even the putter manufacturers with American heads and American True Temper shafts are either using rubber grips (usually Mexico) or Gripmaster Leather (Australia).  

Even at that point, some American putter manufacturers are proud of their GERMAN stainless steel... :rolleyes:

PING s-58's were 100% made in the USA.  I think that was the last of the major OEMs.

Ping irons are made in US excluding the ones that involve titanium (rapture series)  Woods are made in China, again due to the Titanium aspect (last I heard they were looking into expanding their foundry to be able to work with titanium).

All clubmakers have their forging and casting done outside of the USA nowdays. The emission regs have pretty much put an end to casting/forging in this country.
Lots of clubmakers ASSEMBLE their clubs in the USA, but you arent really going to find any that still have the casting/forging done here.
I know that in the case of Mizuno, the forged clubheads are made in Japan, the cast clubheads and made in China; but they are assembled in the USA.

Clubheads are the only hard part, everything else you need is easy to find 'Made in the US'.

   True Temper and Rifle steel shafts are made in Mississippi.  Harrison and Penley graphite shafts were/are made in California.  Grandt (fishing) Rods make graphite shafts here (http://www.grandtrod...dtrods_golf.htm).  Acushnet ( Titleist, Pinnacle ) balls are made in Massachusetts.  I think Top-Flites are domestic, too.  Golf Pride stopped making grips here, but Star, Tacki-mac, and Mint all make grips in the US.  Some Avons and Kelmacs, too.

   There are even some clubheads still made here.  Ping, as mentioned.  Cornell Forge (http://cornellforge.com/) makes heads for someone, but I've yet to find out who.  Prairie Golf (http://www.prairiegolf.com/).  Lots of putter heads.

   As for why it matters, well, we can't all be landscapers.  Someone has to actually make something here, or the long-term future is bleak.

Wow, great thread, can't believe I didn't notice it until I completed writing my articles about USA made equipment.  I will add in everything I see here on to my list.  If anyone has more to add for American made equipment please post it.  I'm trying to make a full list.

Golf Clubs made in USA (focus on PING, will add more small companies to this list soon)
Golf Balls made in USA (basically Titleist, Bridgestone)
Golf Tees and more made in USA (tees, iGotcha retriever, PURE grips)

Pretty sure they are made in USA, at least the putters have a sticker of the flag.

I'm pretty sure Chinese factories can locally source USA flag stickers with no problem. And in fact, if I were a USA company producing products in China I'd seriously consider spec'ing them out with a USA flag decoration. It can't hurt.

Aldila tour issue makes some stuff in Poway, CA. I've been to the facility. A lot of companies to prototyping in house in USA. But mass production goes overseas.
