Imperial was recently voted the #1 headwear brand across the board for Public, Private and Resort golf facilities by the Association of Golf Merchandisers (AGM) for the first time in recent history.

Imperial has previously been voted the #1 headwear brand for Private golf facilities for five consecutive years and #1 for Public facilities for the first time ever last year. For 2021 however, the AGM Annual Member Survey of top sellers by facility type reported Imperial as #1 in headwear in all three categories.

“Imperial has been a consistent supplier to golf professionals and merchandisers since 1916 and provides expert craftsmanship, style and comfort in the ever-changing golf industry,” said Patrick Casey, AGM President and Assistant General Manager at Brentwood Country Club of Los Angeles. “Their ability to provide product that has evolved with the business and game of golf, while still offering a classic and traditional offering makes them an ideal partner for golf shops in today’s retail market.”

Founded in 1916, Imperial Headwear is the leading manufacturer of premium quality headwear, apparel and accessories for the golf market. Imperial’s products can be found at 97 of the Top 100 and over 70% of the Top 400 Golf Courses in the United States.

“Imperial is very proud to have been voted the #1 headwear brand in golf this year by the AGM,” said David Shaffer, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Imperial. “The membership of the AGM represents the best merchandisers in the country, and to have this group vote Imperial the best headwear brand is an amazing accomplishment and the culmination of a lot of hard work from our entire team.”
