Product for the Outdoors
– Since 1872 –
Quality and elegance that will charm the
most discerning individuals on your behalf
Professionals within the golf industry have taught us what they expect from grounds accessories. Predictably, maintenance wants performance and durability. Marketing, however, is all about promotion. They insist that even maintenance accessories play a roll in a presentation that stimulates a positive response from their target client base. The expectation is that everything a player sees or touches creates a desire to belong.
Challenged by these logical expectations, we design “dual performance” into our products. First, to do their job well. Second, to delight your players. Through their long hours of faithful service to your maintenance needs, Cheesebrough goods act as a “silent sales staff” for your marketing effort.
What is Cheesebrough?
Cheesebrough has been shipping durable outdoor goods around the globe over the past three centuries. At one time by the boxcar, and now in much smaller boxes of cardboard. Unlike the typical golf industry suppliers that compete in offering “price point” goods manufactured in far away lands, we are a remnant of the days when American craftsmanship and quality was the envy of the nations.
Our family has worked with wood for many generations, operating much the same as in times past, using machines to “rough in” the basic shapes and handwork in the finishing. In a world racing towards robotics, we are thankful to carry on our simple trade and hope our goods offer the same satisfaction to your lives in the using as they do to ours in the making.
Each of our small number of clients is important to the future of this old company and our family trade. If you ever have reason to be disappointed in anything we make for you, please call and allow us to make it right.
Purchase accessories that pay for themselves
Annual cost of Cheesebrough accessories is competitive when you consider the years of service they offer. And, if your intention is to generate interest with the world’s high-end consumer, few do it better. What promotional value are you receiving from your current grounds tools?
Why our customers value Cheesebrough
“Honestly? My club expects me to find the best. I would have some explaining to do if they saw them down the street first.”
“We have used the typical plastic stuff for years, and I couldn’t guess how much of it we sent to the landfill. I will feel better using accessories that end their life being a food source for something else that wants to grow.”
“Players love your stuff. I’m going to turn the invoice over to the marketing office.”
“It may be a little sneaky, but I use your pins to open conversations with members. My office looks out over the practice green. If I see someone I want to speak with,I go out and ask them how they like the “new look” we get with your sticks. I always get a positive response, and a smile. That is a great way to begin the conversation.”
“To further our point of difference with our competitors.”
Are wooden accessories worth the effort?
It makes good sense to be cautious when considering the purchase of wooden grounds accessories. Cost, durability, maintenance, and years of service are very real concerns. At Cheesebrough, we have incorporated the “new world” of scientifically engineered wood preservatives into our many generations of building products for outdoor use.
When we couple those with the variety of hardwoods from around the globe, our wooden accessories find themselves in a very competitive position. Equally important is in selecting the proper hardwood, production processes, and sealers for each location.
Our products are often out in the weather their entire life, no matter the season. To give them the best chance at resisting the elements (and also brackish water, adjuvants, etc.), we first research your environment. We then select the best hardwood for that location and process it using the natural preservation systems handed down over the generations. We then apply modern stabilizers and sealers if needed, and advise you on the proper care for achieving the maximum years of service.
The simplest explanation came from one of the youngsters. “Oh, we make them into a little house. You just need to keep the roof fixed.” (keep the finish in good repair)
