PRG RCDPRG, the fast-growing supplier of innovative, high-quality bespoke golf accessories, has been providing the Royal County Down pro shop with branded merchandise and support for the return of the Irish Open from May 28-31, 2015.

PRG, based in County Down, Northern Ireland, is a bespoke golf accessory company which has captured an enviable percentage of the market since launching its first golf range a mere seven years ago. Word has quickly spread about the quality and breadth of PRG’s range, leading to an ever-growing client base that includes many of the UK and Ireland’s very finest golfing establishments.

This May, the Irish Open revisits Royal County Down for the first time in 76 years, with Rory McIlroy working hard to bring the ‘Dubai Duty Free Irish Open hosted by the Rory Foundation’ to the world-famous course, in which Old Tom Morris, Harry Vardon and Harry Colt have all had a design hand over the years. The links with the magical setting, which occupies top spot in Golf World’s Top 100 UK & Ireland course rankings, and 2nd place in Golf Monthly’s list, is following in the footsteps of Royal Portrush in welcoming the Irish Open back after a long gap, and it seems over 80,000 eager fans are set to witness the likes of Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia, Ernie Els and a veritable ‘Who’s Who’ of European golf battling it out for the trophy from May 28-31.

With so many people passing through the Royal County Down pro shop over the course of an exciting week, Kevan Whitson and his team have been working hard to ensure they hold sufficient stock of branded accessories to satisfy what is sure to be unprecedented demand for high-quality, Royal County Down merchandise. With PRG’s offices under an hour away, the brand has been perfectly placed to ensure everything is in stock in good time, with a wide range of Royal County Down headcovers, putter covers, ball-markers and accessories ready and waiting for thousands of golf fans.

“The Irish Open coming back to Royal County Down after so long is a dream come true for the club, but also an incredibly exciting occasion for the PRG team, based just an hour away,” says PRG director, Ross Methven. “That proximity has enabled us to work extremely closely with Kevan and his team to ensure they have just what they need to enjoy a successful week. We know we have the right memento for every golf fan in our comprehensive range and are absolutely delighted with the collection of Royal County Down merchandise PRG has been able to supply to Kevan. We, along with thousands of Irish golf fans, can’t wait for Thursday May 28 and the return of top-level professional golf to the highly regarded links on our doorstep for the first time since 1939.”
