The game of golf is a unique combination of the past and the present, featuring a history that dates back over 600 years. The Old Course at St Andrews is known as the “home of golf” because the sport was first played there in the early 1400s.
In 1894 the United States Golf Association was created to form a national governing body which would administer the rules of golf for the country. As the game continued to the grow into the early 1900’s hundreds of new golf courses were built throughout the country and the popularity of golf blossomed with the first generation of American-born stars such as Walter Hagen, Chick Evans and eventually Bobby Jones.
It’s within this deeply textured history that the Imperial Headwear company has been embedded for over a century. Founded in 1916 and located in Bourbon, Missouri, Imperial Headwear is a leading manufacturer of premium quality golf hats.To celebrate their first 100 years in business, the company recently released a six-panel driver cap silhouette with heather wool fabric called “The Centennial”. Available in two sizes and three colors, this hat is a fitting tribute to the company’s proud past.
The company recently debuted their new Spring 2016 line at the PGA Fashion & Demo Experience August 17th-19th in Las Vegas. The new line is highlighted by the “One 9 One 6 Collection,” which references Imperial’s established year of 1916. It’s a signature premium collection employing superior fabrics and trim, with 12 styles available.
