Nike releases Enemies of the Course collection

Nike Golf has released its Enemies of the Course pack, which pays homage to greenskeepers.

The custom print, created in collaboration with artist Michelle Morin, combines the motif with street-style influences. 

There are more than 15 varieties of plants and animals depicted in the printy - the various enemies that greenskeepers combat on a daily basis as they keep the courses in the best condition possible to allow golfers to focus on their game. Included are snakes, geese, deer, dandelions, one-leaf clovers and an alligator.

“Once I nailed down which plants and animals I wanted to include, I was able to play around with the colour and pattern,” Morin explains.

“I altered the scale of some of the plants to give the finished piece a more imaginary narrative. My goal was to create a pattern that allowed the viewer to get lost in the detail and that brings your eye in and out of the composition, so with every glance you see something new.” 

Also featured in the collection are lifestyle-inspired silhouettes, such as the Enemies T-Shirt and Print polo, Raglan polo, fleece cardigan and coaches’ jacket, designed for off-course style with on-course functionality.

A bucket hat and an AW84 are available in both black and the iconic Enemies of the Course print. A trio of inspired accessories – a Duffle Bag, Shoe Tote and Scorecard Holder, completes the collection.

Available: 29 March from Nike Online, 1 April at Nike Town and Harrods.
