Internationally respected Scottish-based brands Glenmuir and Sunderland of Scotland have agreed to be Official Apparel Supplier and Official Rainwear Supplier respectively for the charity which makes the benefits of golf available to young people and helps them to ‘Start, Learn and Stay’ in the sport.

The Golf Foundation has enjoyed the backing of Glenmuir and Sunderland of Scotland for many years now. During this time both brands have demonstrated continued strong support of all golfers, from new youngsters up to the elite players at the highest level of the professional game. The current agreement will last a further two years.

Brendon Pyle, chief executive of the Golf Foundation, said: “It is Glenmuir’s 125th anniversary this year and the Foundation team believes it is fitting that the brand – which is steeped in family values and supported by many loyal staff – is backing this charity as we seek to encourage more young people and families into golf. On a recent visit I learned all about the company’s values as an organisation, which are very much in tune with ours as we work to help more young people enjoy all the benefits provided by the game.”

Mikhel Ruia, Glenmuir’s managing director, said: “Glenmuir is a brand that has been at the heart of the game of golf for 125 years whilst Sunderland of Scotland is recognised on a global scale as the original weatherwear brand. We place great importance on, and recognise, the outstanding 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 encouraging and promoting grass roots junior golf through our continued support of the Golf Foundation.”

The Golf Foundation has a committed team of eight Regional Development Officers (RDOs) which works with PGA Professionals, local sports officers, teachers, volunteers and county golf representatives to help introduce 500,000 children a year to the game in schools, communities and golf clubs, creating a player pathway into regular club golf.

Martin Crowder, national development manager of 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 our national ‘HSBC Golf Roots’ programme in the time ahead.”
