Antigua like many companies that work in the golf world, gather feedback from the players they sponsor, men, women, seniors and younger players. What remains the most challenging aspects of the apparel industry, are issues such as lightweight, non-stick materials on hot days, keeping apparel not only comfortable, but allowing golfers to swing without restriction.

When the temperatures drop, golfers need to be able to add a layer of clothing, without adding restriction while keeping them warm. Playing in apparel that holds up in the rain is another situation that challenges designers.
