Our vision for golf, is free from golfers cringing at the warning call “Fore” or headlines reporting serious head injuries. The head protection we have developed therefore combines an innovative protector technology with a sporty design. We not only want to fulfill our vision, but also establish a completely new safety standard in golf.
For us, golf is not only one of the most beautiful sports there is, it is rather an attitude towards life: The challenge in competition or against oneself, the constant incentive to improve on the most diverse golf courses in combination with the outdoor exercise and the sense of community on the course – a dream for enthusiastic golfers.
However, Philipp and Ann-Christin had to learn that it only takes the blink of an eye to destroy this idyll.
Ann-Christin felt only the sharp breeze of the golf ball, which missed her head by millimeters. There was no Fore warning call and certainly no way to react.
Ann-Christin was lucky, all that remained was shock, but Philipp would not let go of his wife’s experience. So he searched for a suitable head protection: unsuccessfully!
The search failed, but the idea to change something significantly was born. Together, with his best friend Daniel, the brainstorming began: A head protection for golfers. But please not a helmet! A protection that is comfortable, modern and stylish, so that it is worn by everyone on the course.
The idea became a product and the vision became a company. In early 2020, safetee launches the first golf cap with a protective protector. Today, safetee is a team of five golf enthusiasts with a mission!

to more safety.
A near-accident during a round of golf led to the desire for head protection for all golfers. The lack of an adequate solution on the market drove, founder Philipp Schneider, into creating one himself. Together, with his best friend Daniel Weimann, he took up the cause and laid the foundation for safetee.
Many workshops, brainstorming sessions and conversations with friends and acquaintances from the golf world characterize the year 2019. The first prototype of the safetee golf cap has been manufactured and made its first big appearance in the spring of 2020.
Award, founding, production and conversion – this year will be quite turbulent! In January, we presented the first prototype of the safetee golf cap at the well-known PGA Merchandise Show in the USA and immediately won the “Most Innovative Concept Award”. This was followed by the official founding of safetee technologies GmbH, and in the summer, with the completion of product development, we put the first safetee golf caps into production. During this time, our team grew to four people and in order to create enough space for everyone, we moved into our new office in the Skyline Hill Center in Würzburg.
The new year is also fully under the motto of growth: We can welcome a new team member and already equip some golf courses with their own safetee Club Cap. In addition, we can not only be pleased about the first major customers, but are also proud to have won the Bavarian Golf Association as a cooperation partner.
