GSGA will purchase apparel from Divots for volunteers
Mar '11
Divots Sportswear, the oldest private golf apparel company in the country, has entered into a strategic partnership with the Georgia State Golf Association, making Divots the Official Apparel Partner of the GSGA, according to company president Bob Friedman.

As the GSGA's exclusive apparel partner for 2011, Divots will provide the GSGA staff and team competition participants with a varied selection of golf shirts and outerwear embroidered with the GSGA logo. Additionally, the GSGA will purchase apparel from Divots at a discounted retail-rate for the over 300 volunteers that annually support the many services and activities that the Association performs in Georgia.

"We are pleased to begin this arrangement with Divots Sportswear to be the official apparel outfitter of the GSGA. It's good for the state golf association to cultivate partnerships with companies in the golf industry that are also in our backyard," according to GSGA Executive Director Mike Waldron. "We look forward to outfitting our staff, volunteers and 2011 team participants in Divots clothing while they are representing the GSGA."

Celebrating its 35th anniversary in the golf business this year, Atlanta-based Divots has been supplying golf apparel and accessories to hundreds of GSGA member clubs since the company's inception in 1976. It also has been an apparel provider for myriad tour events and major golf championships contested in Georgia.

Says Friedman, "It is a genuine honor for Divots to partner with the Georgia State Golf Association. Their nearly century-long legacy of fostering the sport of golf in Georgia is as admirable as it is invaluable, and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with the Association."

The Divots/GSGA partnership runs through 2011, but will be available for renewal on a yearly basis.
