NGF TOP 100 BUSINESSES IN GOLF
Prestwick Golf Group
For over 20 years, Prestwick Golf Group has been a leading manufacturer of golf property furnishings, with the singular goal of helping properties enhance the overall experience for their members and guests.
The company’s products — from bag stands and waste bins to cooler boxes, benches, range dividers and hazard markers — have been featured in 63 countries around the world and at 86 of America’s 100 greatest golf courses, along with 46 PGA TOUR stops. All products are built to order from a low-maintenance, recycled plastic material, a solid hardwood, or a combination of the two.
The company started out in 1997 as Great Lakes Golf Course Products, primarily making markers and course accessories in their 1,000-square-foot facility in Nashotah, Wisconsin. The company’s founder, Matt Morse, began envisioning a wider breadth of coordinating property furnishings, ultimately pioneering a new space the company would come to define within the industry.
Over the next decade, the company continued expanding and not only outgrew its old facilities, but its regional name as well. Upon moving its operations to Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, in 2007, Great Lakes Golf Course Products rebranded itself as Prestwick Golf Group. By this time, the company had worked with a majority of the top courses in the U.S. and dozens of countries abroad. Today, Prestwick runs its operations out of a 60,000-square-foot facility in Sussex, Wisconsin.
In the fall of 2017, Prestwick welcomed Stirling Furnishings and its 62-year history of world-renowned craftsmanship in interior ﬁxtures, furnishings, and architectural woodwork into its family of brands. With Stirling’s expertise, Prestwick was now well-equipped to furnish spaces throughout the clubhouse, pro shop, locker room, and interior spaces with unique and custom designs.
Driven by the desire to help customers create inviting outdoor living areas, Prestwick launched Sister Bay Furniture in 2019. Built with the same recycled plastic that started the company, Sister Bay has a lineup of traditional and modern furniture designs that have been designed to elevate a property’s outdoor landscape and connect members with their friends and family members.
What began as a simple golf course marker has now grown into a portfolio of brands known as The Prestwick Companies, which has shipped more than $250 million in manufactured products for organizations across a broad spectrum of activities and lifestyles.
With a world-class manufacturing facility, innovative designs, customizable options and durable, environmentally-friendly materials, Prestwick has established itself as an industry leader in golf course furnishings.
While the company name might not be instantly identifiable to golfers, Prestwick is widely recognizable at the facility level and often provides the bulk of essential furnishings present at many top courses throughout the country.
