Summit Golf Brands has acquired Zero Restriction Outerwear. Specific terms of the deal were not announced. Zero Restriction joins Fairway & Greene and EP Pro, who, since January 2006, have been owned by Summit Golf Brands, a division of Northbridge Equity Partners, a private equity firm specializing in buyouts of brand-based consumer products businesses.


“Summit Golf Brands is extremely enthusiastic about our acquisition of Zero Restriction,” says Summit Golf Brands CEO Paul Clark. “As the leader of technical golf outerwear within the industry, we believe Zero Restriction to be a perfect fit and a major complement to our other two industry leading brands, Fairway & Greene and EP Pro.”


Zero Restriction Outerwear has been the choice for United States teams competing in the Ryder Cup, PresidentÂ’s Cup, Walker Cup, Curtis Cup, PGA Match Cup, Palmer Cup, Junior World Cup and World Amateur.


 “Zero Restriction has been the benchmark for the highest quality technical golf outerwear,” says Gary Tolton, CEO of Zero Restriction. “With this recent addition, Summit Golf Brands, along with its focus on customer service and sales support, will now be able to offer the same level of commitment from ZR that the golf professional appreciates so much from Fairway & Greene and EP Pro.”


Summit Golf Brands was founded in late 2005, and is designed for its brands to play an important role in the lives of all golfers, and enhance and enrich the quality of golfersÂ’ lifestyles, both on and off the course.
