Glenmuir, one of Europe’s leading golf apparel brands, is gearing up for a new season as a supporter of the Golf Foundation. The Lanark, Scottish-based company is backing the charity as official clothing supplier to the Golf Foundation for 2008.
The Golf Foundation is a charity committed to the sporting and social development of young people through golf. It reaches an estimated 700,000 children a year through its national golf initiatives which are having a significant impact throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
Glenmuir is providing high-performance apparel for use by Golf Foundation staff as they take golf into schools, golf clubs and community groups in the charity’s support of the national golf partnerships.
The Golf Foundation team will also be seen wearing Glenmuir golf clothing at public promotional events like The Open Championship, The BMW PGA Championship, and The Quinn Direct British Masters.
Mike Round, Chief Executive of the Golf Foundation, said, “This organisation has been very grateful for Glenmuir’s support in recent years and we are delighted that this can continue. The Glenmuir team always takes a great deal of care in helping our staff to look really smart and professional for their work with the public and this is very important for us.”
Andy Bough, Glenmuir marketing director, said, “We are delighted to be supporting the Golf Foundation as we fully endorse the need to encourage youngsters to take up the game – and continue to enjoy it into adulthood. We launched our first ever Golfing Kids range this year and we regard the development of young golfers as critical to the future success of the game of golf.”
