With over 60 million regular players and more than 15,000 courses in the US alone, golf is an incredibly popular sport. New tournaments pop up all the time, along with companies focused on apparel, equipment and education. With so much competition, you need to set yourself apart with a great golf logo to represent who you are and what you do. Just look at how PGA TOUR players like Brian Gay and Stuart Appelby do it, using logos that can be printed on golf balls, bags and hats.

If you’re an entrepreneur in the world of golfing, make sure that branding is one of the big things on your mind. As you start creating your brand, tee off with this set of 30 golf logos that are sure to inspire.

Modern golf logos

Golf has been around since the 15th century, but that doesn’t mean your logo needs to be old-school. If you’ve got a new product (or an old product with new technology), use a modern logo to show that to your customers. Simple, stylized or flat imagery illustrates that you’re not doing things the old way anymore.

But don’t get too abstract. Make sure your logo tells one story. Whether you’re selling balls, clubs or cleats, show those in the logo. Or use the golf icons like a flag to let people know what market you’re in.

Classic golf logos

With its expensive equipment and country club fees, golf can be very exclusive. If want to present your brand towards the upscale market, there are ways to do so without being pretentious. Coats of arms or shields call golf’s royal origins to mind. Script fonts offer a certain amount of elegance. Strong, dark colors feel traditional without being dull.

Sporty golf logos

For a lot of folks, golf is a relaxing way to spend a Saturday morning. But some people truly appreciate golf as a sport. Action lines, dynamic angles and bright colors give golf logos energy. Show your equipment in motion—like a club swinging or a ball flying through the air—and your customers will immediately see what you do.

Lettermark golf logos

Not every golf logo needs to have an image. While it’s risky not to portray your business with an image, a lettermark has a sense of elegance and class in not being on-the-nose, and it can work well across multiple products—from branded clothing to golf clubs. If your brand is strong enough, the name alone can get customers to purchase your product.

Remember: a lettermark doesn’t have to use only text. Simple images or graphics can also be a part of your logo without dominating it.

The 19th hole: fun golf logos

Let’s face it. Golf isn’t just about golfing. It’s also about getting fresh air, chatting with friends and maybe knocking back a few drinks.

If your brand involves the lighter side of golf, consider bright, pastel colors, bold lines and soft edges. It’s still a good idea to utilize the iconography of golf, but find a playful way to incorporate those elements alongside other fun ideas.
