BOURBON, MO – Imperial Headwear, the #1 headwear brand for Private and Resort golf facilities as reported by the Association of Golf Merchandisers (AGM) in their 2016 Member Survey, announced a new partnership and e-commerce fundraising collaboration with the Colorado Golf Association (CGA).

“The CGA is very appreciative of our partnership with Imperial Headwear,” said Ed Mate, executive director of the Colorado Golf Association. “The Imperial brand has a great history in the state of Colorado and we are proud to work with them to help grow the game.”

Imperial will also be offering limited edition Colorado Golf Association headwear on their website – – and a portion of the proceeds will be directed to their Community and Wellness Programs which supports a variety of initiatives, including their Solich Caddie and Leadership Academy and Hale Irwin Elite Player Program which will receive Imperial headwear for the 2017 season.
