The Golf Foundation is delighted to continue its association with two leading golf apparel brands that have shown their dedication to grass roots junior golf.

Internationally respected Scottish-based brands Glenmuir and Sunderland of Scotland have again agreed to be Official Apparel Supplier and Official Rainwear Supplier respectively for the charity.

The Golf Foundation has enjoyed the backing of Glenmuir and Sunderland of Scotland for more than a dozen years. During this time both brands have demonstrated continued strong support of golfers, from new youngsters up to the elite players; in Glenmuir’s case clothing the European Ryder Cup team.

The Golf Foundation has a committed team of Regional Development Officers (RDOs) which works with PGA Professionals, local sports officers, teachers, volunteers and county golf representatives to help introduce well over 750,000 children a year to the game through the charity’s HSBC Golf Roots programme in schools, communities and golf clubs, preparing them for regular play at golf facilities.

Brendon Pyle, National Development Manager for the Golf Foundation, said: “Our team operates in the public eye and we need staff to look really smart, be instantly recognisable and have high quality golf apparel that can stand up to the rigours of their work. Wearing Glenmuir and Sunderland of Scotland, the team is often praised for its professional appearance. We are delighted that these two great brands are showing their continued support in this way, helping to raise our profile as we develop HSBC Golf Roots in the time ahead.”

Mikhel Ruia, Glenmuir’s Managing Director, said: “Glenmuir and Sunderland of Scotland recognises the great work carried out by the Golf Foundation team in promoting golf to young people and ensuring the ongoing growth and development of the game. As a Company that takes great pride in supporting golf at every level, we are delighted to continue our association with this incredibly worthwhile and successful charity.”
