How Can I Date a Ping Golf Club?

Updated July 20, 2017

The Ping Golf company is a family-owned business headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona. Their humble beginnings began by their founder, Karsten Solheim, producing putters in his garage. They have been a leading manufacturer of golf products for more than 50 years.

Ping has a strong history of cutting edge technology in the golf industry. In fact, many of their original putters and clubs are sought by collectors all over the world. While it might be easy to find information on current Ping Products, it can be rather challenging finding information on clubs released 20 or 30 years ago.

Inspect any ping golf club for a serial number and product information. Ping keeps detailed information for any product with the serial number. For example, customer service can tell you specific club fitting information such as length, lie angle, flex and any other information from when the club was ordered. This makes it easy to replace any club to the original owner's club specifications.

Contact the Ping customer service department. They will be willing to give detailed information regarding any Ping product. Take note of the club model and serial number. Call the Ping customer service listed on their website.

E-mail Ping requesting information regarding a club. If you e-mail Ping they will answer any question regarding equipment. If you go to the website, click on Contact Us. Fill out the form and write your question in the message box. Ping will respond with an answer to your question. Include the serial number so Ping can track the specific club.


Go to the Ping website, Click on the 50 Year Anniversary and click on "timeline." The timeline for Ping gives general information regarding many of the products over their 50 year history. However, this is general information, not specific information. For example, you will see what year Ping released the G2 line, however, it won't have specific information regarding the products in the G2 line.
