TORONTO, ON, Canada - For the first time since being introduced to the Canadian golf marketplace seven years ago, Galvin Green has been selected as Golf Company of the Year by SCOREGolf magazine.

Galvin Green, which is now available in nearly 180 golf shops across Canada as well as select Golf Town superstores throughout Canada, finished in a tie with Callaway Golf for top spot as the nation’s Golf Company of the Year as chosen by SCORE’s noted equipment and business editor, Rick Young.

Galvin Green also received further accolades from the country’s national golf magazine by being named Outerwear Brand of the Year winner for 2015. Galvin Green had shared the honour with other companies in 2013 and 2014 after having won it outright in 2012 and being nominated for the award for the very first time in 2011.

“It’s a great honour for Galvin Green to be recognized as the Golf Company of the Year as well as Outerwear Brand of the Year in Canada for 2015,” says Jonathan Wong, President of Galvin Green Canada. “Galvin Green is incredibly successful in the United Kingdom and across Europe and we’re now seeing terrific brand recognition across Canada as well as North America with the successful launch into the United States.”

“We had a very strong year in Canada in terms of growth and sales with our partners and 2016 is looking solid with new product, innovative design styles, and leading edge technologies playing a key role in the Swedish company’s Gore-Tex, Windstopper, Insula,Ventil8 and SkinTight layering system,” Wong adds. “As the official team supplier to the European Team in this year’s Ryder Cup matches at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota it’s going to be another banner year for Galvin Green.”

Golf Company of the Year

The nominees: SkyGolf, Bushnell Golf, PING, Cobra-PUMA Golf, Galvin Green, Fujikura, TrackMan, Mizuno Golf, Callaway Golf, Titleist, E-Z-Go, KBS

The winner: Callaway Golf/Galvin Green (TIE)

My take: Two outstanding brands, two great years, two worthy winners. That was the hallmark of Callaway Golf and Galvin Green who share this year’s Golf Company of the Year award.

For Galvin Green it was a year notable for not only worldwide sales dominance in the outerwear category but further marketing and retail inroads across North America where it is seeking new growth and heightened brand awareness. The track record of success the Swedish brand’s Gore-Tex, Windstopper, Insula,Ventil8 and SkinTight layering system has enjoyed the past two to three years continues to provide an industry-leading position in an outerwear category ripe with top brands. Validating Galvin Green’s European styling, fit functionality and performance standard was the European PGA Tour earlier this summer. It named the company the official team supplier of outerwear to the 2016 and 2018 European Ryder Cup teams.

Outerwear Brand of the year

The nominees: Sunice, Galvin Green, FootJoy, Sun Mountain, adidas, Nike Golf, Zero Restriction, Under Armour, PING Collection

The winner: Galvin Green

My take: Galvin Green maintained its brand-defining Gore-Tex, Windstopper, Insula, Ventil8 and Skin Tight collections but, as it seems to do each year, found new and interesting details to improve the fit and function of those products. Amid some great new colours for men, women and junior golfers in 2015, the Swedish company added a thermal aspect to Skin Tight along with an array of new accessories for foul weather play, including more hat and warm glove options. Using the layering concept as its most visible marketing tool, Galvin Green not only increased its stronghold in the European market but made a further dent into North America where it continues to gain market share.
