Eastside Golf was founded June 1st, 2019 by Olajuwon Ajanaku.
The vision came from years of playing golf and recognizing how it helped me grow as a person while growing up in the Eastside of Atlanta. Many personal experiences both good and bad contributed to the development of a brand for a sport that I love and ultimately changed my life.
Eastside golf is a lifestyle golf brand developed to raise awareness about golf among youth and non golfers. We want to inspire the culture, promote diversity and continue to be authentic.
Eastside Golf was designed to make golf more attractive to the younger generation, so they can utilize and apply the morals and values it has to offer in order to better themselves and change their lives. Eastside Golf is also for all people to enjoy the game while rocking our apparel with full confidence.
Growing up on the Eastside of Atlanta and golfing for years the majority through John A. White Golf Course, East Lake Charlie Yates Academy, and Sugar Creek Golf Course brought to me a sense of who I truly am as a person and golfer. I started playing golf when I was six years old and end up playing competitive junior golf in Georgia from ages eight through high school. I then got a scholarship to play golf at Benedict College in 2007 where I won many college golf awards and tournaments. Afterwards, I transferred to Morehouse College where we won the 2010 PGA National Minority Collegiate Championship and now framed in The World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, FL. I then turned pro for two years with 2 professional wins under my belt in 2013. I moved to Detroit in 2018 where I work for a commercial finance company and volunteer at a couple of junior programs located here.
