DENVER (July 20, 2009) – Imperial Headwear (www.ImperialHeadwear.com), the leading global manufacturer of premium quality, active lifestyle headwear, announced today it signed an agreement with the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA). Through this relationship, Imperial Headwear will become the exclusive headwear partner of the ASGCA and will be named a Patron level sponsor.
“Every golfer owes a debt of gratitude to those remarkable professionals who create living works of art called golf courses,” said Rick White, CEO of Imperial Headwear. “We are honored to be associated with the ASGCA and look forward to working with them for many years to come. ”
Imperial offers a broad range of products from technical to eco-friendly, that will prove beneficial to the needs of the ASGCA membership.

Imperial also shares many of the same values as the ASGCA such as quality and history in the golf community.
“We are delighted to welcome our newest Patron, Imperial Headwear” said Mike Shefky, ASGCA Patron Program Manager. “Imperial is built on solid values, and shares many of our views on the future of the sport. We look forward to a prolific relationship with them.”
