Job Description
Linksoul is more of a philosophy than a brand. It is the collective life's work of a group of people that care about each other and enjoy collaborating. We believe in making things with our hands, with the people we love, for the good of our families and our surroundings.

We come from a long line of golfers, craftsmen and artists. It is our idea that through these practices we can learn the most about ourselves. The word "linksoul" comes simply from the term "links soul", which was an expression of the combination of virtues we found through playing golf... and now seek in whatever we do. Our mission is to reconnect people to the soul of the game.

John Ashworth began playing with the idea of Linksoul over twenty years ago while building Ashworth, Inc. After leaving Ashworth, and following a long and winding road through several creative endeavors from course design in Scotland, to designing Quiksilver's golf apparel line, Fidra, and back to Ashworth again for another run. Through it all he collected an all-star team, and with them continued to nurture and grow this idea of Linksoul. Together, after years of conceptualizing, collecting, developing and designing, we are very pleased to birth Linksoul.

After several laps around the track, we're looking to expand beyond the current definitions of "business as usual" when it comes to making and selling goods and participating as a socially and environmentally responsible company within the community. It's no longer just about golf, it's about everything.

We thank you for taking an interest in working with us, and welcome anyone who wants to come play with us...
