Local Golf Company Official Licensee of 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow
“We are very excited to produce towels for the PGA Championship, less than 25 miles from our production facility,” said Jason Bonenberger, Devant Brand Manager, “Quail Hollow is practically in our backyard, and we are extremely proud of our local roots.”
Devant Sport Towels, has been a Charlotte area based business for over 40 years, from its inception in 1976 in the attic of the founders’ (Sheppard family) home. It has grown to over a 50,000 s/f facility and produces more than one million towels a year, with national licenses for PGA of America (PGA Championship and Ryder Cup), PGA Tour, Senior Tour, LPGA (LPGA Championship and Solheim Cup) and the USGA (U.S. Open).
“Devant is the industry leader in golf towels,” said Leighton Klevana, CEO of Dynamic Brands, Devant’s parent company, “with the designation well-deserved as the direct result of Devant’s unmatched quality, workmanship, customer service and support.” Devant’s Monroe facility has over 25 employees with half of those holding over 10 years of tenure. “Our employees take great pride in their work, with the full belief that every towel that comes out of Monroe is a piece of art,” said Bonenberger.
For the event, Devant created 12 towels ranging in price from $16-22 featuring the PGA Championship Quail Hollow logo, which can all be purchased at the Championship Shops August 7-13, 2017 at Quail Hollow. The Championship Shops grand opening will be open to the public on Saturday, August 5 and Sunday, August 6 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. prior to the event. No tickets or credentials are required to attend this event. Devant towels include woven, microfiber, Edge and woven selections. One of the towels, the Pro Edge, is an extremely popular souvenir of the tournament highlighting past champions.
