IMPERIAL ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH MASS GOLF

BOURBON, MO – Imperial Headwear, the #1 headwear brand for Private and Resort golf facilities as reported by the Association of Golf Merchandisers (AGM) in their Member Survey the last 3 consecutive years, announced a new partnership and e-commerce fundraising collaboration with Mass Golf.

“As we continue to grow our new Mass Golf brand, we are thrilled to welcome Imperial Headwear as the newest partner of our organization” said Menachem. “Our main objective here at Mass Golf is to advance golf in Massachusetts by promoting its competitive spirit and camaraderie. By creating this new partnership with Imperial Headwear, we feel that we are taking another step in doing just that.”

Under the agreement, Imperial Headwear will provide staff and volunteers with custom headwear. In addition, and for the first time ever, Mass Golf will join the likes of several top golf associations from across the country when it unveils its online merchandise store that will allow Mass Golf members to purchase limited edition Mass Golf merchandise that was previously only available to volunteers and competitors in select events.

The online store – which will officially open to the public on April 10th – will be overseen and operated by Imperial Headwear and available as part of its Golf Association Collection. The Limited Edition collection of hats and tee shirts offered online will include 13 styles in multiple colors featuring the new Mass Golf logo. A link to the store will be made available at MassGolf.org and here:

“I am very excited to collaborate with Mass Golf,” said David Shaffer, vice president of sales and marketing at Imperial Headwear. “Our partnership represents a tremendous opportunity for us to partner with a golf association that is doing great and impactful work for amateur golf in Massachusetts.”

As a result of this new partnership, Mass Golf will become the 27th golf association in the country to open an online merchandise store with Imperial Headwear, joining the likes of associations such as the Texas Golf Association, Golf Association of Michigan, Alabama Golf Association, and Georgia State Golf Association, to name just a few.
