THE AVERAGE GOLFER BURNS 1,200 CALORIES CARRYING THEIR CLUBS OVER 18 HOLES, SO WHY COMPROMISE WHEN IT COMES TOYOUR NUTRITION ON THE COURSE?
Lowering your score and providing golfers with the solution to back nine fatigue on the course will always be at the heart of SSP Golf.
Our mission is to remain the world leader in golf performance nutrition with a constant commitment to developing products for golfers that will enhance their performance and lower their score.
The average 18 hole round of golf burns up to an astounding 1,200 calories. That’s over 66 calories per hole. Nutrition is often neglected on the golf course, however our products are made to tackle this very problem.
You make sure your clubs, balls and attire are all in prime shape before setting off for a round. So why do so many people abandon their nutrition?
Part of our mission is to use the very finest ingredients in all our products. We use the very best oats, chocolates and fruits sourced from all over the world. Each handmade bar is golden baked in our bakery in the UK. We pride ourselves on our great taste as well as functionality so you can enjoy your game to the max.
Tackle fatigue and maximise your potential on the course.
HOW DO OUR PRODUCTS WORK?
Echoing an increasing demand from PGA Tour professionals for performance nutrition, SSP Golf Performance Bars bring tour quality performance nutrition direct to your game.
Our multistage formula of simple and complex carbohydrates fuels your body and mind with both immediate and long term energy. Drip feeding you for around two hours. Ideal for combating back nine fatigue and your overall performance levels on the course.
FUEL YOUR BODY WITH PERFORMANCE NUTRITION
Fuelling your body also fuels your mind and it’s your mind that makes critical decisions such as club selection, estimating distances and reading the green. A tired mind makes bad decisions.
DON’T CRASH AND BURN
Too many rounds are compromised by the last few holes which can let many golfers down as fatigue and tiredness begins to kick in. With our carefully developed performance bars, you can be sure to solve this problem at its core, allowing you to finish a good round as alert and energised as you started it.

I will be using SSP golf nutrition products in every tournament I play in; they have increased my energy levels and improved my performance. The products are tasty as well!”

NATIONAL GOLF COACHES
“Good nutrition and diet is playing an increasingly important role in the development of our young golfers so it’s great to be working alongside the team at SSP so we can prepare our golfers in the right way. Golf Energy Bars have quickly become very popular and the feedback from the players has been really positive. It’s a very healthy snack and one which helps my concentration, particularly in the all-important closing holes of a round.”
Ian Rae – Scottish Golf Union National Coach
PRO SHOP OWNER
“I decided to try one of your SSP Golf Performance Bars and must say they are remarkable. Forgetting the fact that they taste great, they give me immense amounts of energy throughout my round. I wasn’t tired and I didn’t have any lack of concentration that I normally feel during my game. I didn’t have any sugar buzz as with some other energy bars that I’ve tried. They are now part of my game and would recommend them to anyone.”
Kenny – Mardyke Valley
PRO SHOP OWNER

Karl Woodward – World Record Long Drive Champion – 860Yds In 2 Shots
For your testimonials section. “As an avid golfer, I must say what a fantastic product your golf energy bars are. It’s like having an extra special club in the bag. The added bonus is they do not taste like cardboard and are full of goodness. I feel full of vitality. I know that when I turn on the back nine I will not flag and my game will not go to pieces!”
Steve – Burnham-on-Crouch
“I have been using the Golf Performance Bars for the last year after a friend shared his Chocolate & Toffee bar with me. I now understand how eating correctly during the back nine can help lower your score. My decision making has improved over the last nine holes and as a result I have taken 6 shots off my game.” Please feel free to use this on your testimonials page.
