The Sand Trap Custom Imperial Hats

108 posts in this topic

Hi guys, I'm a fan of Imperial visors and recently got a few made with The Sand Trap logo.  I wanted to start this thread to see how many would be interested in a TST hat.  Gotten some interest so far just want to see if it makes sense to put in an order.  Price would be in the $15-20 range, basically covering my cost and shipping.  Post in this thread if you're interested.

Here is a pic of the visors, a few are available, can also post in this thread if you want one, as of right now, only 3 are left.

Going to be ordering two styles, The Sandman and The Prodigy (fitted).  If you want a fitted hat, please let me know what size, options are below.

I'll take a visor. Pm me the details. Will take at least one hat if there is an order.

I like either of those first two. The third one is fitted, which I can only assume would make sizing much more annoying. Plus (and I can't be the only one like this), I always seem to be in-between sizes and I wouldn't want to worry about buyer's remorse ordering one without trying it on. The first two are velcro, which is my favorite of the non-fitted enclosures. I think I would lean towards the first one, "Ellipse", though the only thing that gives me pause is that the eyelets are navy, and don't really fit in with the TST colors (plus, the second one is called "The Sandman"). I think "Ellipse" is my favorite.

I definitely get what you are saying about the worry of getting a fitted hat via an online order.  It is unfortunate that is the case because I prefer fitted hats and like the way they feel/look.

Of the choices available, I like the second one (Sandman)... name is good, I like that the eyelets are white and that it is structured. Too bad the fitted isn't an option... while I understand that there are issues with fitted, I like them best... Oh well. I'll probably get a couple of these as I tend to go through hats in the summer.

I don't really care which style was chosen, but if I had to choose I guess I'd vote for sandman because of the aforementioned non-contrasting eyelets.  Either way, I would order one or two.  I'm assuming that you are only going to order them in white?

I could never buy a visor, I think that's before my generation :)

I like the first hat you showed. It would look nice with TST logo on it.

I'm too bald for visors.

Would take two hats though.

Unfortunately, I shave my head clean with a Gillette Fusion and have that "Mr. Clean" look. A visor wouldn't work for me, but I do wear fitted hats. If you do decide to give a fitted option, I would gladly take two of each (L/XL) in white and black!

Bald spot dictates no visor for me.  I like structured hats the most, but would get an unstructured one.

I'd actually like fitted as well but as for the options....I like the second hat the best (sandman).

Thanks guys, yes I'll go ahead order some hats.  Probably go with The Sandman style in white.  I think white works best for The Sand Trap logo.  When you order these hats you have to order them in bulk so I'm not sure what the minimum amount they would need for the fitted option, but I'll look into it.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
