OUR STORY

Birdies & Bogeys Golf Gear was founded by Martin Maritz in 2021. Born and raised in South Africa, Martin played college golf at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma, USA, where he was a 2-time All-American. After graduation he played on tour in over 300 professional events from 2000-2013, won twice and reached a career high ranking of 52nd on the European Tour in 2004 and world ranking inside the top 200. In 2011, Martin played in the British Open at Royal St George's.

"I love the game of golf, all it stands for and what it has given me! Through golf, I was able to earn a full scholarship, a university degree and live out my childhood dream of playing on tour. In the process I visited 47 countries, competed in over 300 tour events and had a career that spanned over 13 years.

I wanted to take my world travels and experience and create a line of products that golfers would love and be proud to wear. It has taken me a number of years to source the best possible designs, materials and suppliers to bring you Birdies & Bogeys Golf Gear!

The inspiration behind the logo and name comes from childhood, watching golf pros play and compete in person and seeing their names on their staff golf bags. For me, the pinnacle of the game has always been having your name on your pro staff bag. So when you wear our gear, I want it to be an inspiration to become the best golfer you can be, and perhaps even have your name on a staff bag one day! 

Golf is very similar to life, a rollercoaster of ups and downs and it’s how you deal with adversity and successes that define you as a person. Without making ‘Bogeys’ in golf, we will never know the pure joy a ‘Birdie’ feels like. I wanted to incorporate that sentiment into our brand name coupled with the aspirations of becoming the best you can be!”

 

 

Let’s make more birdies!

Martin.
