Many kids have aspirations of becoming successful entrepreneurs, but not all put their money where their mouth is.

At the age of 15, Quentin Hill started a custom golf club business with only $100 in his bank account. Hill needed to buy Christmas presents for his four immediate family members and started brainstorming on how he would come up with the money.

In 2015, Hill purchased his first product, a Titleist 712u 2 iron, off  eBay with the goal of reselling it. He cleaned and regripped the club and sold it to a friend for $115, making his first profit. He continued to buy and resell clubs to friends out of his garage, but then thought that his business could be bigger as he managed his profit margins.

In addition to simply reselling clubs, he began customizing clubs and offering services of stamping, dent removal, custom finishes, grip and shaft changes.

In 2017, Hill created his website and official business name, Convenient Clubs. He has now completed more than 1,100 custom orders, servicing customers in 48 states and 27 countries. He does this in addition to being a member of the men’s golf team at San Diego State University.

Hill’s entrepreneurial spirit isn’t solely invested in custom golf clubs, and has now started a second business selling unique sports jerseys and sportswear. In 2021, Hill launched Hidden Gems Sportswear, which sells gear online but also out of a storage unit in San Diego.

Hill puts a percentage of each company’s sales towards a charity that he and his two sisters started at the beginning of the pandemic, Jesus In A Bottle.

This charity hands out reusable bottles to the homeless community that include hygiene products and other daily essentials.

Each bottle has a bible verse on the front of it to provide hope to its recipients.

“I never imagined that business would expand as it has over the last six years.

“While my original goal was to grow my checking account, the most rewarding aspect has been seeing friends and customers play their best golf with clubs I customized to best fit their game ,” said Hill.
