Cobra Golf, based in Carlsbad, California, is an American manufacturer of golf equipment which is currently a subsidiary of the Puma company of Germany, which in turn is part of the French company Kering.

History[edit]

Founded in 1973 by Thomas L. Crow, Cobra produced one of the first utility clubs, the Baffler, long before the use of such clubs became popular. The company was acquired in 1996 by American Brands Inc.[1] and was grouped together under the Acushnet Company umbrella along with the company's other golf brands, Titleist, FootJoy, and Pinnacle Golf. Cobra was acquired by Puma SE in March 2010.[2]

Sponsorship deals[edit]

Cobra had a successful relationship with former world number one Greg Norman.[3]

In February 2014, Cobra Golf signed a multi-year partnership[4] with the PGA Tour's Honda Classic, making it one of the lead sponsors of the event.
