Al, Lyle, Jim & Bob Hansberger

Inducted: 1997

The Hansbergers have been synonymous with professional quality golf equipment since the 1940's, when the brothers founded the Sportman, Kroydon and Bristol Golf companies. Their quest for excellence resulted in the creation of Ram Golf in the early 1960's, which has provided high quality and innovative products for clubs and balls. More recently, two other firms were created: golf ball manufacturer Hansberger Precision Golf in Mississippi, and Vulcan Golf Technology in St. Charles, a company specializing in professionally fitted custom clubs, to continue the family tradition of excellence. Balancing a respect for the tradition of the game with advanced research and development in product design and high tech materials, the Hansberger family remains at the forefront of equipment manufacturing.
