January 13, 2021

ORCA Golf Bags™ Named Proud Partner of LPGA Amateur Golf Association & LPGA Teaching Division

Golf Bag Designer and co-owner Erica Bennett Creates Distinctive, Proprietary Bag to AssistLPGA’s Brand Efforts of Its Secondary Lines of Business

(Fort Lauderdale, FL) — As the LPGA continues to grow and support its amateur and teaching divisions, the world’s leading women’s golf organization has entrusted custom golf bag designer and CEO of ORCA Golf Bags to create golf bags and other branded golf accessories for its members. It was announced today that ORCA Golf Bags will be the Proud Partner, Golf Bags and Accessories of LPGA Professionals and LPGA Amateur Golf Association.   

LPGA Professionals and LPGA Amateur members will receive exclusive discounts on LPGA-branded ORCA products, including golf bags, travel bags, and its ORCA Pod™ with branding identification specific to each of the two LPGA organizations. ORCA Golf Bags will also receive its own branding and promotion across a number of LPGA platforms.  

“We are excited to partner with the ORCA Golf Bags brand to provide quality, custom-designed golf bags for our LPGA members,” said Nancy Henderson, Chief Teaching Officer and LPGA Foundation President. “The decision to align with this female-owned company was an easy one. ORCA Golf Bags is just as committed as the LPGA is to growing the game of golf, encouraging more individuals to play and leveling the playing ground for all in golf, and life.”   

ORCA Golf Bags is owned and operated by Deborah and Erica Bennett of Fort Lauderdale (FL). Their story is not unique among the ranks of golf industry upstarts: two smart, successful business people with a passion for the game, find their calling within the industry, and set out to change at least one corner of the golf world. Like most, they personally identified within a niche, in this case, the golf bag, and set out to create the proverbial “better mousetrap.” Four years ago, they set out on their journey as the only women-owned golf bag design/build company in the United State, and now they have had their work carried across the Augusta National landscape.
“To design golf bags for the women of the LPGA is a humbling honor,” said Erica Bennett. “For a start-up business like ours, it is truly a ‘pinch yourself’ moment that we’ll look at as a turning point for our business, our brand, and for the women in the manufacturing business, particularly in golf. It’s a great example of how we can all help support each other.” Check it out at ORCA-GOLF.com
