Our May Member Spotlight features Callaway Golf! Callaway's Chicopee golf ball plant has been producing golf balls for almost 130 years, since 1896!

Over the past few years, Callaway has completely modernized the Chicopee facility with state-of-the-art machinery, adding advanced engineers and technical processes; these investments can now boast the most modern ball facility in the world, and the highest quality, most consistent golf ball, Chrome Soft. The Chicopee plant is Callaway's only stateside golf plant, which makes Callaway's high-end models such as Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft X, and supplies the world-wide market.

Callaway's commitment to the people and the community are what make it special, what give this facility its longevity, and what make it such a gem to our city. If you're trying to decide what to watch one evening, check out the documentary on the Chicopee golf plant, "The Ball That Changed a Town." Told by long-time employees, it tells the story of how one of the first golf ball manufacturing facilities in the world reinvented itself and created the most modern ball production in the world, while securing hundreds of local jobs. The documentary is a quick and enjoyable watch, and highlights the rich history of Callaway, Chicopee and the golf ball.
