Have you ever wondered if one single individual can change an entire industry? Karsten Solheim, a Norwegian engineer passionate about making the game of golf easier, did just that with the creation of the iconic PING putter.

Join us and other golf aficionados on a one-mile walking tour through the fascinating history behind PING and its role in revolutionizing the golf equipment industry. From its humble beginnings in the Solheim family's Redwood City, California garage in 1959 to the sprawling 50-acre campus in Phoenix, housing over 800 employees today - this tour is a golfer's dream come true.

Discover the dedication and craftsmanship that go into custom-building PING equipment for golfers of all skill levels, from top professionals to everyday players. Witness firsthand the meticulous process of designing, engineering, and manufacturing the highest performing golf products in the world. Journey through PING's campus and catch a glimpse of the work to bring Karsten Solheim's vision to life every day.

His dedication to making the game of golf easier lives on through the unwavering commitment of every worker at PING. This once-in-a-lifetime experience is a must for golfers who truly love and appreciate the PING brand.
