If you are going to walk 100 holes in a day, you might as well look good doing it, and two Oregon-based brands can help you put your best foot forward (pun intended). Even if you are not participating in the Hundred Hole Hike (HHH), picking up some limited edition HHH shoes from True Linkswear or the limited edition headcover from Seamus Golf are two ways to support a great cause in style.
Seamus Golf Hundred Hole Hike Headcover
I’ve written about Seamus headcovers in the past and hope to do a more in-depth review in the near future. Quite simply, there is nothing like a Seamus headcover. Each one is handmade from the finest tartan wools and paired with a soft fleece lining.
The HHH headcover is based on the Anderson Clan tartan design — a brilliant blue base with sharp red and yellow bands — and features a matching red fleece lining. It is topped off with a special HHH leather label and is packaged in hand tied woolen yarn. A donation of $10 from each purchase is made to the One Divot charitable foundation.
True Linkswear Hundred Hole Hike Shoes
Feet will likely be the biggest foe for participants of the HHH, so it’s not surprising that True Linkswear is a supporter of the hike. If I were walking 100 holes in a single day, I’d want to have my feet in a pair of Trues. These limited edition shoes have the style, and more importantly, the function to go the distance.
While I’m not a huge fan of black shoes right now, the black and electric blue colorways of these limited edition HHH shoes from True Linkswear really appeal to me. The electric blue accents provide a dramatic pop against the black leather.
True Linkswear is also offering the HHH shoes in a range of four different styles: the best-of-everything Proto; the iconic Tour; the ultra lightweight Sensei; and the sporty PHX. A percentage of sales before the end of June go to One Divot.
About the Hundred Hole Hike & One Divot
If you’ve read this far and have no idea what the Hundred Hole Hike is, here’s some background info. The HHH is a national network of golf marathons. Participants walk 100 or more holes in a single day to raise money for various charities.
One Divot is the charitable foundation behind the HHH. It provides support to individuals in the golf family who are in dire need of medical or financial assistance and develops and provides support to grow-the-game initiatives, especially with juniors in traditionally underserved areas.
Some of the best courses around the world are hosting HHH events, including Cabot Links, Medinah Country Club, St. Andrews and Pinehurst to name a few.
