Chip-Down is an ultimately portable golf-inspired backyard game that puts everyone on a level playing field! We have simplified the game of golf to be manageable for everyone. Our game has evolved from a wooden box prototype to our now lightweight and portable assembly. As golfers, we know that it takes years to perfect the game of golf but with Chip-Down, it takes minutes! Our specialized shuttlecocks soar through the air with perfect trajectory and do not roll around in busy parking lots. They truly provide a user-friendly experience for all.

Chip-Down is based out of Buffalo, NY and we are proud to be a part of the Western New York Entrepreneurial community.


Bernard and Joe are two students doing whatever it takes to live their dream of owning a successful business.

They are in their last year of a combined mechanical engineering/MBA program and balancing Chip-Down, school, and their part-time jobs has proved to be challenging. If there is one quality that describes the two of them, however, it is “determined.” Bernard and Joe have worked incredibly hard to watch their idea come to fruition.

Their complimentary personalities allow them to have a productive working relationship. Bernard is a creative risk-taker while Joe is a pragmatic thinker.

It’s a hole-in-one combination.
