Limited-edition bags featuring stunning artwork now available for preorder
BOCA RATON, Fla. – ORCA Golf, a fast-growing, women-owned golf bag manufacturer, has partnered with world-renowned marine wildlife artist and conservationist Dr. Guy Harvey to create a limited-edition golf bag collection featuring popular marine species artwork, with proceeds benefitting the marine conservation and education work of the Guy Harvey Foundation (GHF).
Preorders of the new ORCA Golf x Guy Harvey Golf Bag Collection will be available at www.GuyHarvey.com and www.orca-golf.com beginning November 15 for delivery at the end of March 2024. Four styles are offered: two custom stands and two Apex hybrid cart designs. Both styles of bag are made with premium tour grade leather, noted for its durable wear and water-resistant qualities. These golf bags have magnetic, easy-open pockets (Dorsal 1 – five pockets, Apex – 11 pockets), water bottle holders, valuables pocket with velvet lining, and umbrella slot. Retail prices range from $285 to $349, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Guy Harvey Foundation (GHF), which works with local and international organizations to conduct scientific research and host educational programs aimed at better understanding and conserving the marine environment.
“Golf brings people together and with growing up as we did in Jamaica, perhaps this was destined to happen,” said ORCA Golf co-founder Erica Bennett, who lived only five miles away from Dr. Harvey during her formative years in Jamaica. “Pouring his heart and soul into everything he touches, Dr. Harvey and his Foundation remain steadfast in their commitment as a catalyst for ocean health. His artwork is both beautiful and breathtaking.”
As a young boy in Jamaica, Dr. Guy Harvey realized an undeniably deep connection to the ocean. Today, Dr. Harvey and his team are implementing educational initiatives focused on the state of the world’s oceans and its fisheries, all the while advocating for legislative change.
A self-taught artist, Dr. Harvey has built a global lifestyle brand featuring apparel, art, accessories, home goods, pet products, and other merchandise designed with marine wildlife art that is unmatched in authenticity and visual appeal. This will be the first time that his vibrant artwork will be adorning golf bags.
Most popular among people who love boating, fishing, and the outdoors in general, the Guy Harvey brand has been expanding to target other demographics and with the large cross over of those who like to both play golf and fish, this seems like a natural next step. The new ORCA Golf x Guy Harvey golf bag collection will showcase and capture many classic and popular marine life including billfish, dolphinfish (mahi-mahi), turtles, tuna, and wahoo.
ORCA Golf represents more than bespoke bags for everyday golfers. Founders Deborah Bennett and Erica Bennett are committed to paving the way for future generations and making the golf community more inclusive, empowered, and sustainable.

Having graduated with honors in Marine Biology from Aberdeen University in Scotland in 1977, Guy returned home to Jamaica to resume his education, earning his Ph.D. from the University of the West Indies in 1984. Though he gave up a budding career as a marine biologist for that of a highly acclaimed artist, Guy has continued his relentless pursuit to unravel the mysteries of the sea, traveling the world to better understand the habits and habitats of the marine wildlife he paints.
