Galvin Green sponsors Northern Order of Merit

GALVIN Green, the market-leading golf apparel brand, is to become the title sponsor of the Northern Order of Merit, established in 1988, for the 2015 season.

The Galvin Green Northern Order of Merit represents the first sponsorship of its kind in the UK for the brand that pioneered multi-layer golf clothing a decade ago and has strong commercial links with courses on the tour’s fixture list such as Royal Birkdale, Southport & Ainsdale, Formby and Mere.

Commenting on the new backing for the well-established amateur North West tour, Galvin Green’s Jonathan Gallagher said: “Having played in the Northern Order of Merit myself, I appreciate the high standard of play and the status of the courses involved, especially with six world-ranking events taking place next year.

“Many leading amateur players will be familiar with the quality of Galvin Green clothing and its value when trying to maintain performance levels in all weather conditions in this part of the country. This will be a key feature of the brand’s promotion next year, so this sponsorship is a great fit for both parties,” he added.

The Swedish brand will be introducing a new App ahead of the tour starting in April that is free to download on all iPhones, iPads and android devices. It will give serious golfers details of the 2015 Spring/Summer Collection and recommend layers of garments depending on an interactive weather forecast.
