July 16, 2019


BOURBON, MO - Imperial Headwear, the leading manufacturer of premium golf headwear, announced its #1 ranking in three headwear categories – Private Facilities, Resort Facilities and Canada Facilities – as found in the 2019 Association of Golf Merchandisers (AGM) Member Survey.

“We are incredibly proud to have been named the #1 headwear brand at both Private and Resort facilities by AGM members for five years in a row,” said David Shaffer, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Imperial. “The new addition of #1 headwear brand in Canada is exciting and encouraging. We look forward to working with golf merchandisers to elevate their product lineups for years to come.”

The Association of Golf Merchandisers is an international, professional association of golf-related merchandisers and vendors. Today, there are more than 1,500 members of AGM. Members include golf professionals, buyers, merchandisers, students, club managers, owners, and suppliers to the golf industry.

“AGM appreciates the support Imperial Headwear has shown over the years to the organization and its members,” said Desane Blaney, executive director of the Association of Golf Merchandisers. “Imperial was our very first Vendor Partner member when we were founded in 1989 and still with us today as they celebrate being in business for over 100 years.”

This July, Imperial launched its 2020 Collection to wholesale buyers, including new product categories, decoration techniques and 40 new styles in total. Imperial’s new wholesale programs are perhaps the most attractive part of the 2020 offering. For PGA Professionals these programs provide extreme customization in small minimums, quick turnaround, inventory control and an overall service provider to encourage retail success.
