When the 64th annual PGA Merchandise show concluded in Orlando, Florida on January 27th, UK-based PRG had further consolidated its position as a leading player in the global bespoke accessory sector, having successfully showcased their impressive range of products to a global audience of key industry buyers.
“PRG enjoyed a great year in 2016 and we continued to expand our international client base,” said PRG Founder and PGA Professional Stephen Riley. “Our presence at the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show confirmed that, as we were able to connect with our growing network of international distributors, resorts and OEMS as well as exhibiting our comprehensive range of accessories to new audiences.”

This attention to detail has led to PRG’s burgeoning reputation within the industry and has resulted in the company working with some of the most prestigious resorts, brands and events in the world of golf.
Within their extensive range of products PRG continues to evolve and move forward. As an example, the company has continued to grow its metal and brassware facility with each handcrafted product subjected to a rigorous quality control process to secure the PRG stamp of approval. This level of consideration ensures PRG stays at the forefront of innovation and quality.
PRG has also refined its embroidery and stitching facility, overseeing the process from start to finish. In-house digitizing, embroidery and stitching allow PRG to produce the finest fabric goods.
“It’s attention to detail across the board that sets PRG apart,” said Riley. “We take great pride in our overseeing the manufacturing process from start-to-finish with all our products and strive to deliver the highest quality and finest workmanship.”
