CHALLENGING THE ELEMENTS IN LOFOTEN NORWAY – NORTH OF THE ARCTIC CIRCLE
With every new collection we strive for perfection – by introducing new materials, launching pioneering technical features and challenging the concepts of comfort and design. To make sure our garments deliver what they promise, we set out to test our latest technologies in the most extreme conditions we could think of. Facing the shifting weather at one of the most remote and breathaking golf courses we have come across, we were really put to the test.
Confronting the damp cold, the heavy rain and the gusty winds from the ocean at Lofoten Links in Norway, the benefits of layering and functional materials was indisputable. We also had the joy to experience some of the most amazing and unexpected golfing moments, like playing golf under the beautiful midnight sun, north of the Arctic Circle.
GALVIN GREEN TEST TEAM
SERIOUS GOLFERS AND BOLD EXPLORERS
To test the 2017 collection we brought a team of skilled and motivated golfers who all have different qualities. We wanted to see how the clothes performed in various authentic conditions. The players took on the task to one hundred percent, often for long hours and in tough conditions.
This is the way we like to work. To head out there and gain proven experience that our high-performance golf wear deliver what they promise. It is part of our philosophy and ever-present product development at Galvin Green – by golfers for golfers.
