THE 81 GOLF DIFFERENCE

The Eye of An Experienced Professional

With over twenty years as a coach at a private clubs, our PGA Professional understand the unique relationship between players and equipment. While form and technique certainly mean a great deal, so does having the right match between person and product: finding that perfect pairing has become our passion, one that often yields remarkable results.

While there were – and are – a great many golf shops, both real-world and online, few of them offer the honest, real-world experience we bring to the table, coupled with an earnest desire to match the golfer with the gear of his or her dreams.

Our goal at 81 Golf is to act as the golf enthusiast’s trustworthy source for both information and equipment. Whether you’re new to the sport or have been enjoying it for years, whether your handicap is eight or twenty-eight, whether you want to play nine holes or nine courses this month, we’re here to help you get the most enjoyment out of your game.

Our Founder- PGA Professional Robert Sedlak

My journey in golf began in my hometown of Westminster, MD when I was just 9 years old. This early passion led me to pursue a career in the sport after graduating from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. My first real insight into the golf industry came during a summer job at a small course in Indiana, PA, where I saw firsthand the rewarding nature of a career as a PGA Professional.

I refined my skills as an Assistant Professional at The Suburban Club in Baltimore, MD, from 2001 to 2007. Here, I not only improved my own game but also mastered the art of teaching others. My dedication to practice, seminars, and coursework culminated in 2007 when I was honored with election to The PGA of America as a Class A member. My career then progressed to the role of Head Golf Professional at Glen Oak Country Club in Clarks Summit, PA, where from 2008 to 2023, I deepened my professional knowledge and thrived in guiding others in their golf journey.

Golf runs in my family—my spouse is a skilled golf instructor, and her brother and father are both esteemed PGA Master Professionals. Together, we are devoted to helping others discover and enhance their enjoyment of the game. I am passionate about guiding players in golf techniques and equipping them with the right tools to improve their play. My approach is focused on making golf enjoyable and accessible, ensuring every client leaves the course feeling confident and energized. Come join me on the greens and experience the best in tailored golf instruction and support.

Our Story

begins with hard work, experience and a love of the game.

Shortly after the turn of the millennium, our resident PGA Professional enjoyed employment at a private club. His genuine enthusiasm for the game was contagious: The players he coached wanted to improve all areas of their game, and paid close attention to his lessons. At times, though, his pupils seemed to plateau. While talent and practice take a golfer a long way, the benefits of matching equipment to skill level and style of play can’t be overlooked.

Yet, there was an obstacle: not all golfers could afford to purchase the best of the best, new out-of-the-box equipment, let alone the absolutely high-end customized pieces. Our founder realized that all players needed better access to higher caliber equipment, at a lower price. He started making phone calls (this was the early 2000s, remember?) to various suppliers, diligently working to find a way to fill this niche via an eBay storefront.

In the interim sixteen years, our eBay storefront became a highly successful enterprise. Great equipment with attractive pricing served as the initial draw, but what kept customers coming back, and singing our praises to anyone who would listen, was our customer service – before, during, and after the sale. Golf is our passion, and we love helping others to enjoy it as much as we do. Continued success led us to expand to Amazon and, now, we’ve grown so large that we need a website of our own.

We gather the best in equipment across a range of categories and suppliers. We do the research. We provide honest reviews from a PGA Professional. We offer the best possible pricing to reach as many players as possible. Our passion and enthusiasm help make it all worthwhile. Let us do the work, while you focus on the game.
