Partner Recognition Program SILVER PARTNERS Founded more than 100 years ago in Cedar Falls, Iowa, Standard Golf Company is the world's oldest continually- operated maker of golf course accessories. Standard Golf provides products and services to golf course superintendents, pro shops and driving ranges around the world. Today, Standard Golf is the world's leading manufacturer of golf course accessories. We specialize in putting cups, flagsticks, bunker rakes, ball washers, course signs, litter receptacles and yardage markers. In addition, we have a wide variety of customizable products including flags (screen print, dye-sublimation and embroidery) and tee signage. Standard Golf is also the manufacturer of the Magnum™ line of maintenance tools, which are considered the most durable tools of their kind, the popular ST2000 Smart-Fit™ Cup and Ferrule System and the Tour Pro™ bunker rake. Our custom flags have flown around the world and at major golf tournaments since 1976. Effective January 2018, Standard Golf became a 100% Employee Owned Company via an ESOP. "This decision to form an Employee Stock Ownership Plan was a long and well thought out one" said Standard Golf President Peter Voorhees. "The primary reason I made the decision to sell to an ESOP rather than a third party was the desire to keep a business that my family founded and has been a part of for over 100 years in Cedar Falls. I want to keep the legacy of Standard Golf in Cedar Falls alive for another 100 years." Golf evolves continuously, from how we play the game to how we run our businesses to how we manage our turf. The key to lasting success is innovation – and it's a commitment that PBI-Gordon has upheld for more than 70 years. PBI-Gordon was one of the first companies to recognize the unique needs of the golf course industry. We're proud to develop innovations that meet the changing needs of superintendents and turf pros. From our pioneering innovations, like the Trimec ® line of broadleaf herbicides, to today's advanced solutions, like Tekken ™ Broad Spectrum Fungicide, which controls 21 diseases for up to 28 days with the same application rate, we help you make sure playing conditions are perfect from tee to green. Based in the Kansas City Metro area and 100 percent employee-owned, PBI-Gordon Corporation is a national leader in the professional turf and ornamental management industry.
