NORTON, Massachusetts – In preparation for the 2019 competitive season, Mass Golf is pleased to announce that it has extended its partnership agreement with Imperial Headwear – of Bourbon, Missouri – that makes Imperial Headwear the “Official Headwear Provider of Mass Golf” in 2019. The announcement was made today by Mass Golf Executive Director / CEO Jesse Menachem.

“As we look ahead to another great season at Mass Golf, we are pleased to be welcoming back Imperial Headwear as one of our partners” said Menachem.  “Continuing to build the Mass Golf brand remains a priority for us and Imperial Headwear is one of those partners that understands the importance of that.”

Under the agreement, Imperial Headwear will continue to provide staff and volunteers with custom headwear. In addition, the online merchandise store allows Mass Golf members to purchase limited edition Mass Golf merchandise that were previously only available to volunteers and competitors in select events.

The online store – overseen and operated by Imperial Headwear – offers a Limited Edition collection of hats and tee shirts which includes 13 styles in multiple colors featuring the Mass Golf logo.

One new addition to the online store this year is the official naming of the unstructured relaxed cotton style hat.  The “Bay Stater” is available in multiple colors and has an adjustable polished silver buckle closure on the back.  The naming came as a result of the social media campaign that gave @PlayMassGolf followers the opportunity to name the hat.

For a limited time only, all Mass Golf golfers will receive a 20% discount off all purchases using the MASSGOLF2019 code.

“I am very proud of our partnership with the Mass Golf Association,” said David Shaffer, vice president of sales & marketing at Imperial. “Being a Massachusetts-native and growing up playing in their championships, I have very fond memories of what Mass Golf means to the game and the golfers who live there. Golf has been and continues to be a very popular sport in the Bay State because of Mass Golf’s commitment to its members.”
