Questions, Answers and Insights for Everyone Interested in the Business of Golf

Apparel and Accessories

The apparel & accessories sector in golf is diverse, ranging from companies that sell shoes, socks, polo shirts and outerwear to those that manufacture hats, gloves, sunglasses, golf bags and travel gear.

There’s little question that looking the part is almost as important to many golfers on the course as actually playing the part. As anyone who has attended the annual PGA Merchandise Show can attest, it’s why a seemingly growing host of companies specialize in golf apparel or have a dedicated golf division.

Even so, some clothing or shoe brands that might be identified as Top 100 worthy in their own right won’t be found in this category as they fall under the umbrella of a bigger parent company in equipment; think names like FootJoy (Acushnet), TravisMathew (Callaway) or Puma (Cobra). Apparel & accessories still remains one of the biggest sectors, featuring 13 representatives in the NGF GOLF 100.
