BigHitter Golf Pipes?

You might be wondering, “Exactly what is a BigHitter Golf Pipe?” I’m glad you asked.

The Beginning

It was a bitterly cold winter in western Illinois in 1982, below zero for almost the whole month of January that year. I was an assistant golf professional at the local municipal golf course. Unless a golf pro goes south for the winter in the Midwest, there isn’t much to do during the winter months. I had learned to repair and refinish golf clubs, so I would tinker with the trade during the cold months.

After firing up a bowl of some commercial brown weed in the ceramic bong (which was about all that was around most of the time), I looked at a couple wooden golf club heads which had seen better days and envisioned a new way to burn the brown seedy stuff. A little sanding, some drilling, a fresh coat of polyurethane and I had just finished my first golf club pipe. Beautiful, durable and very functional the pieces of Kentucky Persimmon became. As Carl Spackler (Bill Murray in Caddyshack) would say “play 18 holes of golf with it in the morning, and get stoned to the bejeesus with it in the afternoon”.

I made a handful of them in the early days, mainly for just my buddies. Everyone thought they were cool as could be. A couple of them floated around the professional mini-tours and very popular with the professional caddies. Years later, running into old golf acquaintances, the subject of are there any of them around anymore. The answer is only the few I made still existed.

In 2008, my wife was reading of people getting instantly rich selling their internet ideas, unique products and businesses for ungodly amounts of money. She says we need to do something like that. My mind started to come out of retirement. I told her what I had made a long time ago. I started looking into the time and cost factors of making my product again. Wooden golf clubs were a thing of the past. I have since sold out of the nostalgic wooden pipes. Everything in the industry was moving away from wooden pipes and into vaporizers, glass bongs and glass pipes. Time to design my own.

I found a golf club casting foundry in China to help me design a large titanium club head which would hold water and began making the BigHitter waterpipe. It looks like a $400 driver from the big golf companies, but my pipe retails for only $79.95 and hits like a son of a gun. Next is the golf ball pipe. A few drill holes and some well fit glass components and now we have easily carried BigHitter Golf Ball pipe. For the smoking, golf enthusiast, these items are as cool as it gets.
