Glenmuir are one of the most popular and successful clothing brands in the golf industry, and have an impressive history which dates all the way back to 1891. Formed in a small village near Lanark, Scotland, it was local businessman Andrew MacDougall who decided to open a factory that produced embroided knitwear for golf.
The company have used several strategies over the years to help them in their rise to the top. Affiliation with associations like The PGA have led to sponsorship and therefore public recognition, and perhaps more important was the ambassador program which seen the likes of Sam Torrance endorsing the products during his best years in the 70’s and 80’s.
The golden times really began for Glenmuir in 1987, when the European Ryder Cup Team decided to use their shirts and knitwear during the infamous win at Muirfield Village in the USA. Following that success, the company continued to be the provider for the European team all the way up until 2014 when the team again came out victorious at Gleneagles.
