We are very proud to have the following companies as Sponsors.
At the heart of the game of golf lies a Scottish brand name that is synonymous with quality in the golf and leisurewear market. Glenmuir has established a position as one of the most prestigious and successful golf and leisurewear brands. From Europe's Ryder Cup elite, to club members around the world, Glenmuir clothes golfers at all levels of the game. The company's passion for quality golf and leisurewear is as strong today as it was over a century ago in 1891 when it set up home in Lanark, in the beautiful surroundings of the Scottish Clyde Valley.
In November 2009, an historic agreement between Glenmuir and Sunderland of Scotland meant Glenmuir became the official European distributor of Sunderland products. Founded in 1911 as a clothing company, Sunderland of Scotland began crafting golf apparel in 1932. Selected over the years for Ryder Cup, Curtis Cup and Solheim Cup teams, Sunderland epitomises quality and playability, ensuring end users of lasting wear and reliability.
