As the weather warms up for summer, countless people are flocking to local golf courses, including many Crusaders. However, both adults and teenagers alike face a similar challenge when they want to hit the links…golf is expensive.

A few Brother Rice seniors named Eddie Maloney, Seamus Hanley, and Joey Lombardo faced this dilemma and wanted to change it. In January, they founded a golf company called Budget Bogeys Golf, with the goal of making golf more affordable for everybody.

Their new brand focuses on two primary goals: maintaining low prices and refusing to compromise for low quality products.

Senior Eddie Maloney said, “We’ve spent the past few months fostering new business connections that has enabled us to secure great products for unbeatable prices. We look forward to our growth this year and to building an extensive community of golfers who wish to make the game more affordable.”

Senior Joey Lombardo said, “While we are currently all sold out of our products, we have more stuff coming in the next month, and we look forward to expanding our range of products this season.”

They hope to expand their company to more members of the community including current Brother Rice students and alumni.

Seamus Hanley said, “There are so many students at Brother Rice that love playing golf, and I think we can definitely help them out by providing a cheaper alternative to normally expensive golf equipment.”

The company hopes to have new products on the way later next month, so look out for new inventory at
