Founded in 1909, and home to the first Ryder Cup to be held on British soil in 1929, Moortown Golf Club is one of the UK’s most prestigious courses.
It remains a proud, traditional club with a long membership waiting list and exacting standards of player dress, on and off the course.
On taking his post in the Pro Shop, Head Professional Martin Heggie was disappointed to discover that the previous Pro Shop knitwear was falling short of these standards. Sweaters in particular often appeared faded and quickly lost their shape. As a result, Martin began searching for a premium alternative and a brand that could bring the club a genuine point of difference.
After visiting our mill, Martin was quickly convinced of our pedigree and has gone from being a new customer to becoming an appointed brand ambassador.
We have worked closely with Martin to bring the Club Shop the quality products and premium cresting it deserves. In one notable example, a member mentioned that they had bought a Glenbrae garment when visiting Royal County Down and was thrilled that Moortown stocked the same range. Our associations with one of the top five clubs in the world has brought an added kudos to the Moortown experience.
“Glenbrae provide the full package; the best service, embroidery and sweaters out there. You don’t realise how poor quality some of the sweaters you have been wearing are, until you wear Glenbrae.”
