OnCore’s mission is to infuse fun and enjoyment into an amazing sport, while continuing to introduce game changing technology and products that remain within the Rules of golf. We want to build a community – Team OnCore – and invite you to join us on this journey. You will not be disappointed.

OnCore Golf was formed by two young entrepreneurs – Bret Blakely and Steve Coulton – who thought that making the game of golf more enjoyable through innovative products like a hollow metal core golf ball was a great idea! OnCore was the first venture for both of them, but they had a great network of advisors and supporters, including a world class advanced materials engineer (Doug DuFaux), an experienced venture investor and technology company founder (Keith Blakely), and several others.  After the first few years of product development, customer feedback, and performance optimization, industry notables and investment leaders from around the country joined Team OnCore!

The MA-1.0 golf ball is the product of years of R&D work covered by three issued patents and a lot of trade secret know-how, with millions of investment dollars behind the technology. It is the third generation of OnCore’s product optimization work (following the Omen and the EVO balls) and current the only ball employing a hollow metal core.  There is no other ball in the world that can offer the same performance benefits to golfers of all skill levels, and despite numerous challenges and objections, the ball was deemed “conforming” by the USGA.

OnCore’s mission is to infuse fun and enjoyment into an amazing sport, while continuing to introduce game changing technology and products that remain within the Rules of golf. We want to build a community – Team OnCore – and invite you to join us on this journey.  You will not be disappointed.

BRET BLAKELY - VICE PRESIDENT, CO-FOUNDER

Bret went to Canisius College in Buffalo, NY where he graduated with a B.A. in Communications and a minor in marketing/advertising. Bret, being told he was always so outgoing realized that every kind of business needs someone who can communicate with others effectively.

He has always been drawn to creative interests and was fascinated by his marketing and advertising classes which prompted the minor in those fields. Bret has worked for several international advertising agencies.

In his time there he began his entrepreneurial journey by co-founding OnCore Golf with Steve. In addition to OnCore Golf, his creative branding and marketing talents are put utilized to help clients of the InVentures Group develop their own image and stand out from the competition. Favorite business book is “Blue Ocean Strategy” where the message is don’t swim in the red sea of competition but rather make them irrelevant by creating your own Blue Ocean strategy.

STEVE COULTON - VICE PRESIDENT, CO-FOUNDER

Steve graduated from New York University in 2007, completing his B.A. in Economics and Minor in Italian studies. He spent a semester studying abroad in Florence, Italy and became fluent in Italian. He was a 4 year starter on the Men’s Varsity Golf team and his crowning achievement came when he won tryouts as a freshman and eagled his final hole. His playing career has been downhill ever since.
