Product for the Outdoors

– Since 1872 –

Quality and elegance that will charm the

world’s 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.

We operate much the same now as when the mill started in the 1860’s, using simple machines to “rough in” the basic shapes, and handwork in the finishing.  In our more modern world, few are willing to work with their hands.  Even fewer have the many generations of handcrafting we enjoy.  We hope our goods will add the same satisfaction to your lives in the using, as they do to ours in the making.

Our Goal

Each of our small number of clients is important to us and the continued operation of this old company.  Our goal is that the accessories we make for you give you good value in service, and in blending into the presentation you work to achieve.  If you ever have reason to be disappointed, please call and allow us to make it right for you.

Purchase accessories that pay for themselves

Annual cost of Cheesebrough accessories is very competitive when you consider the years of service they offer.  And, if your intention is to generate interest with the world’s high-end player, no one does it better.  What promotional value are you receiving from your current grounds tools?

Why our customers value Cheesebrough

“I do not let my close competitors know, but I will tell you that your flagsticks cost less than the cheap sticks I have always used.  They last, and look great over the years.”

“Our organization is working towards a more sustainable future. Being a renewable resource, your wooden products represent a part of that commitment.”

“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 sealers into our many generations of building products for outdoor use.

When we couple that with the variety of hardwoods from around the world, our wooden accessories find themselves in a very competitive position.  Equally important is in understanding your specific environment, and in selecting the proper hardwood, production processes, and sealers for your environment.  We then advise you on the proper care for achieving the maximum years of service.

Cheesebrough is not a “one size fits all” catalog of accessories.  We supply the right fit for you, and you will have quality grounds accessories that will make your grounds and your budget look their best.  Making certain the things we build gives our customers honest value has kept Cheesebrough  in business for over 145 years.
