1.08am 29th October 2013 - Corporate

Prestige Flag websiteLaser Link Golf, a leader in distance measurement technology and solutions for the golf market, has finalised the sale of the company’s reflector business to Prestige Flag of San Diego.

Prestige Flag will take over all manufacturing and distribution operations, as well as all intellectual property surrounding Laser Link Golf’s SmartStick, Smarty, and other related reflector products. Laser Link Golf will continue to market the reflector products the company created from its headquarters in Wisconsin will continue to be a resource for superintendents, golf professionals, and golf course managers. All rangefinder-related sales will remain the property of Laser Link Golf, as will all rangefinder-related intellectual property.

“Prestige is a leading player in the golf course supply industry, and we think they are ideally suited to make SmartSticks and Smarty’s standard equipment on every golf course in the world,” said Rob O’Loughlin, president of Laser Link Golf. “By applying the company’s manufacturing expertise to our already established and patent-protected products, Prestige will not only be able to produce the best flagstick in the business, they will be able to sell it at a price point that all golf courses can afford.”

Prestige Flag entered the golf business in 1995 with the goal of bringing their affordable, best quality flags to superintendents around the world. Over time, Prestige Flag branched out into other golf course supply products, including fiberglass flagsticks and cups. All Prestige products are manufactured in the company’s 20,000 square foot facility, and shipped directly to the customer.

“We’re excited to add this line of products to our business,” said Mike Roberts, president of Prestige Flag. “As the use of laser rangefinders has continued to grow, reflector products have fast become an integral part of the flagstick. Our company prides itself on manufacturing and selling the best products for superintendents, and there are no better reflector products than SmartStick and Smarty.”
