Imperial announced today a new partnership and e-commerce fundraising collaboration with the Carolinas Golf Association. Imperial will become an official “Partner of the Carolinas Golf Association” under the new agreement, and provide headwear for contestants in the CGA’s top competitive events in 2021, including the 107th Carolinas Amateur and the 95th Carolinas Women’s Amateur.

Imperial will also be offering limited edition CGA headwear on their website – – and a portion of the proceeds will be directed back to the Carolinas Golf Foundation, which supports a variety of Carolinas-based golf initiatives, including junior golf, player development, scholarships and turf grass research.

“I am very excited to work with the Carolinas Golf Association to raise money for the Carolinas Golf Foundation,” said David Shaffer, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Imperial Headwear. “The CGA is run by great people, who do wonderful things for the game of golf and specifically amateur golf in the Carolinas.”

The Limited Edition collection of hats offered online will include 14 styles in multiple colors with either a Carolinas Golf Association logo printed twill patch or a special military appreciation version of the CGA logo, featuring a camouflage and United States flag background. $10 from each cap sold online will go directly to the Carolinas Golf Foundation and free ground shipping is available on these hats too.
