State Traditions 'Official Apparel Partner' to Nextgengolf National Collegiate Club Golf Association

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- State Traditions - creator of premium apparel and accessories showcasing the silhouette of individual U.S. states - has been named "Official Apparel Partner" to Nextgengolf and its Collegiate TOUR, the National Collegiate Club Golf Association (NCCGA).

As a part of its agreement with Nextgengolf, State Traditions will offer NCCGA Collegiate TOUR members special access to its line of clothing that celebrates allegiances via state outlines in flag patterns or colors reflective of favorite sports programs.

"Nextgengolf is growing the game for thousands of young-adults and we want to support that momentum," says Keith Brown, President and CFO of State Traditions. "The fact its participants comprise a key customer segment for State Traditions makes it a win-win."

Retailing from $3 to $80, the extensive State Traditions 2014 collection includes caps, visors, polos, belts, neckwear, button-front shirts, ball markers, divot repair tools, iPhone covers and more.

"NCCGA provides non-varsity club golfers a unique opportunity to represent their school in competition," says Kristofer Hart, CEO of Nextgengolf. "A partnership with State Traditions aligns perfectly by offering our members an apparel brand with which they can truly identify."

With more than 250 club golf teams competing in 22 regions, Nextgengolf's NCCGA Collegiate TOUR will host more than 100 competitive collegiate club tournaments in 2014. Nextgengolf also offers a collegiate membership providing student-exclusive savings at its network of more than 550 golf courses.
