SEAMUS GOLF was founded when married couple Megan and Akbar Chisti combined Akbar's desire for traditional yet functional tartan head covers inspired from European golf courses, with Megan's experience in design, sewing, woolen products, and her precise attention to detail. They produced a few prototype head covers with tartan wools and bright, durable fleece linings for Akbar and his friends to use while golfing together. As the result was functional, unique, and beautiful, they knew they were on to something. The company continues to innovate, collaborate and introduce new ways to add stylish functionality to a player's rounds of golf.
