Jan Craig Headcovers

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I hope I'm not repeating a thread I've missed, but has anyone experience with Jan Craig headcovers? I have an opportunity to receive three, one for each of my fairway woods. I like the retro look of the covers. Any opinions about them?

shortgame85,

They're great, expensive, but the quality is very high. What you get is completely up to you in terms of color and design. They're very durable and to clean them, once a season simply include them with the next batch of clothes you take to the dry cleaner.

Highly reccomended.

Re: Jan Craig Headcovers

Thank you both for your reply. They are expensive. I probably would not be spending my money on them but, as they are gifts, well, I think I will enjoy them. I do have nice manufacturer's covers on my fairway woods but, I do like the retro look of them. They were also used by several of our Ryder Cup players. I thought they looked cool, like all white golf shoes ( not that I would opt for the white belt, mind you ---- just not darring enough for that in this lifetime ).

I think that's the great thing about them, you can make them look as outrageous or tame as you want since you control the colors. The eight inch pom is a little much for me, I opted for the smaller five inch for my two clubs and I've got no regrets at all.

Black sleeve with black and gold tassels, I think mine look mighty sharp.

Re: Jan Craig Headcovers

I've had them for years and years. Love 'em. Last a long time with any care. New yarns in the last few years have kept them from stretching out. Right now I have two sets... the smaller poms and the tassels. I seem to get the most comments on the tassels... they're really, really retro (sorry Slider). Very nice people to deal with... but they take a good long time to get. Get 'em and enjoy them!

Re: Jan Craig Headcovers

Gas_Can: Your headcovers must look great. I ordered Forest Green with Yellow Stripes ( 3 for the 3 wood, 5 for the 5 wood, none for the 7 wood ), each with a 5" pom that has forest green, yellow and navy flecks. I hope they look as good as yours sound. An interesting side note: the lady from whom I ordered them told me the covers are handmade by mostly elderly women of Polish descent, many of whom live in and around the Chicago area. Jan Craig is no longer alive, and the company is owned by her son and daughter-in-law. The lady with whom I spoke couldn't have been more accomodating
