Golf clothing company producing medical supplies

Bald Head Blues, a North Carolina-based clothing company specializing in high quality clothing designs, has been providing equipment to first providers since late March.

DELRAY BEACH, Florida – Bald Head Blues – of my favorite golf apparel companies – has dedicated its staff and their efforts to supplying the first responders with highly needed PPE.

Bald Head Blues continues to sell it “Clothing for Coasting’’ but six weeks ago turned its attention to the Covd-19 crisis. Founder and President, Claude Pope, has spent years working with companies who help manufacture the Bald Head Blues apparel and accessory lines. Some of these manufacturers are producing supplies needed by those on the front lines – health care providers at hospitals, assisted living homes, homeless shelters, food banks, and more. He reached out to these companies to procure medical supplies.

“Our intention is to leverage our access and influence with these manufacturers for the better good. People without masks and face shields are still treating patients with the virus. It’s hard to believe! We need to protect those who are saving others,” Pope said.

Bald Head Blues offers the following PPE supplies:

· Three-Layer Disposable Face Masks
· KN95 Hospital Grade Face Masks
· Face Shields
· Disposable PVC Gloves
· Disposable Latex Gloves
· No-Contact Thermometers
· Disposable Isolation Gowns

Bald Head Blues has been providing their medical supplies to first responders, essential businesses, and to high-risk individuals since early this past March. The company now is offering the same supplies for businesses and bulk use.


“We reached out to the golf community and our golf accounts to see if they were in need of medical supplies and the response was huge,’’ Pope said. “Employees at green grass need protection on every level, now as well as in the future, and for this reason, we opened up our PPE program to businesses.”

All medical supplies provided by Bald Head Blues are FDA and CE Certified and are intended for business use. Our lead time is two to three weeks – delivered, and all pricing includes shipping and duty.
