All of their premium golf balls are produced here including their B-330 series for the professional golfer as well as the E-series for the recreational golfer. Bridgestone is now the No. 2 golf ball manufacturer in the United States and also No. 2 in sales.
It also sells all other things golf, including hats, bags, irons and woods. In addition to their golf ball market, Bridgestone Golf is the signature sponsor of Golf Greats like Fred Couples, Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker, Davis Love III and many others.
Many people see the Bridgestone Golf Facility on Hwy. 142 beside General Mills but don’t realize that this building represents their worldwide headquarters.
