I'm Chris Giolitto, Owner/Designer of all products you see here on Weekend Warrior Golf. As the story goes, the first time I played golf with my dad at 5 years old, we finished 9 holes and were going to to head home. I then asked "Aren't there more holes?" Needless to say, we kept playing.
I’ve been playing golf for 26 years. It has given me my highest highs -- a two week trip to Scotland with my dad -- and some of my lowest lows -- countless times choking under pressure. It has taught me patience, determination and resilience, the beauty of nature, to respect others, and to respect myself. I owe much of who I am as person to the game of golf, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Golf often, especially in the past, has had the image of a game for old folks with fat asses, washed up athletes, or those looking to make a business deal outside of a board room. It serves as a perfect sport to take a nap to on a lazy Sunday (Ok, so I’m guilty of the nap). As golfers we were “dweebs” and “dorks” -- an embarrassing team to join in high school.
Tiger helped broaden the game, opening it up to those who couldn’t afford to play. Now Jordan, Rory, Rickie, Jason and countless others are making golf cool. Flat bill hats, jogger pants, collarless shirts, high-top golf shoes; golf is finally joining the modern era of fashion.
Weekend Warrior is a casual lifestyle brand focused on creating golf themed graphic apparel for everyday wear. No more “I’d tap that” tees, or “I’d rather be playing golf” designs. The attitude towards golf is changing and it’s time we join the other world sports and share our love for the game through modern design. I believe that the best way to entice more people to play golf is to remove the "stuck up" stigma. There are ways that we can grow this game with a more casual attitude while preserving the principles that make this game so unique. My t-shirts are designed to do just that - soften these outdated stigmas while hoping to grow and celebrate this amazing game
My goal with Weekend Warrior Golf is to provide you with 3 points of value:
- Premium t-shirts that reflect your love and excitement for golf, your favorite tour players and favorite events.
- Excellent customer service, service that I expect from any brand.
- Entertaining, engaging content each week through blog and social media posts. (sorry no podcast here, doesn’t work well for a fella with a stutter - although I may still push myself to do it!)
I invite you to sign up for our email newsletter below and respond to any of the emails you receive, your response will go directly to me. I have had the most fun getting to know a lot of you through email and I want that to continue!
What is a Weekend Warrior?
We all have busy lives – jobs, families, and countless other major responsibilities. Yet we look forward each weekend to teeing it up with our regular foursomes, or those who we have never met before. Our only goal for those four hours is to play our best, try to shoot our lowest score, knowing we don't put in the necessary time needed to really improve. Despite that, the determination to do so is still there. That is the definition of a weekend warrior. We understand that improving our games in the time we have to devote to it will be hard, but it will never deter our desire to do so. And we know that no matter the outcome, we've had fun battling, and we'll certainly be back for more!
