PUMA Golf’s IGNITE FASTEN8 Shoe Features a New FASTEN8 Fit System to Deliver Superior Fit and Performance With Ultra-Premium Looks

CARLSBAD, CA – Today, PUMA Golf introduced the newest addition to its popular spikeless franchise, the IGNITE FASTEN8, continuing to deliver premium comfort, top-notch performance and versatile style that golfers of all levels will appreciate.

The IGNITE FASTEN8 family provides wearers added stability with a new, exacting fit, in multiple sleek designs, featuring both a traditional lace up style and PUMA’s proprietary DISC technology, and also a PRO version with a microfiber upper. The FASTEN8 lace version is also available in several eye-catching colorways for women .

What differentiates this shoe from other spikeless options, is an all new FASTEN8 Fit System, consisting of 8 interior webbing support straps that are integrated into the lacing system. The 8 webbing straps are secured from underneath the foot and when the laces, or DISC, are tightened, each of the Fasten8 straps deliver an exceptionally secure, personalized fit for players with all foot shapes and sizes. The FASTEN8 also features a PWRCAGE (a TPU saddle integrated with midfoot support webbing straps) and PWRFRAME (an ultra-thin TPU frame placed in high stress areas) technologies, both of which contribute to greater overall stability during the swing and increased comfort while walking.

Enhanced comfort and performance in a variety of turf conditions (or even for wear off the course) is provided by a strategically designed, organically-altered traction pattern in the sole, as well as IGNITE Foam in the midsole, which yields energy return and cushioning throughout the course of 18 holes. The FASTEN8 shoe features a non-stretch, waterproof and breathable mesh construction in the forefoot area for versatile performance in varying weather conditions and SOLESHIELD, a micro-thin TPU film that is vacuum-formed around the midsole to make cleaning off dirt and debris quick and easy. The FASTEN8 Pro features a microfiber upper, delivering conform, style and performance

IGNITE FASTEN8 and IGNITE FASTEN8 DISC are available in six colorways in sizes 7-14. IGNITE FASTEN8 PRO is available in five colorways in the same size range, while IGNITE FASTEN8 Women’s is available in sizes 5.5-12 in four colorways.

Gull Lake View – Stoatin Brae Golf Course Earns National Golf Course of the Year

AUGUSTA, MI – The Stoatin Brae Golf Course at Gull Lake View Golf and Resort in Augusta, Mich., has been named the “National Golf Course of the Year” by the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA). The announcement was made recently during the NGCOA’s Golf Business Conference 2021, held virtually alongside the annual PGA Merchandise Show January 25-27.

Known officially as the Jemsek National Golf Course of the Year Award, the honor recognizes members demonstrating four criteria: exceptional quality of the course, exceptional quality of ownership and management, outstanding contribution to its community, and significant contribution to the game. The Course of the Year Award winners come from the NGCOA’s core membership, which make an outstanding contribution to the game of golf in their markets and are model operations to their peers.

Stoatin Brae is the fifth Michigan golf course to receive the national recognition. The course was recognized for its several areas of community impact like the course’s work with the Boys and Girls Club, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Special Olympics, women’s and junior golf programs including Youth on Course, as well as the Audubon Society.

Going on its fourth generation with the Scott Family at the helm, and as one of the largest family-owned golf resorts in the U.S. with six championship courses, simple-yet-charming lodging, and multiple dining options, Gull Lake View is a fun and rewarding experience for everyday golfers. This is the ultimate golf destination where working-class buddies can have a similar kind of experience and camaraderie as golfers have at the nationally acclaimed high-end destinations, without breaking the bank. Gull lake View is also a favorite among families, women, and kids looking for a fun golf destination with variety.

Stoatin Brae, which means Grand Hill in Scottish Gaelic, was a departure from the normal pattern of growth at the resort. The course is only the second course of the six that was not designed and built by the talented Scott family with landscape architecture backgrounds. The decision by the family was to collaborate with Renaissance Golf Design and its A-Team of senior associates, Brian Schneider, Eric Iverson, Don Placek and Brian Slawnik. The highly acclaimed course, a magnificent design situated on a picturesque bluff overlooking the Kalamazoo River Valley, marries a minimalist classic links-style with architectural elements from golf’s golden design era of the 1920s and 1930s to create a stunning and memorable golf experience.
