Duca Del Cosma Golf Shoe Brand Launches Into U.S. Market

PALM BEACH, FL – Golf fashion brand Duca del Cosma is launching into the US golf market with a vibrant new range of shoes for men and women golfers, supported by an experienced team led by former Reebok and Ashworth regional sales manager Steve Gray.

The premium brand, which sells in more than 30 countries around the world, specializes in producing bench-made leather shoes that offer style and comfort both on and off the golf course. They include a selection of distinctive spikeless styles and waterproof models designed in Italy and made in Portugal to the highest levels of footwear craftsmanship.

Steve Gray –
“The quality of the materials and construction of each shoe speaks to the fact that they are not just pretty to look at, but they do deliver performance,” said Steve, who is in the process of building his sales team across the key golf markets in the US. “I’ve never seen such quality of craftsmanship in all the time I’ve spent working in the footwear business. The attention paid to detail across all aspects of the production, marks the Duca shoe. The workmanship and sewing detail in each model is exceptional. I’m very excited to be working with such a fast-growing and unique brand,” he added.

A dedicated showroom and offices have been set up in Palm Beach, FL., to handle administration and sales, while a distribution centre has opened in Atlanta, GA. Sales representatives are in place in South Florida, Tennessee/Kentucky plus North and South Carolina, while several another are expected to join the sales team. 

Models expected to do well in the American market are the ELDORADO, BELAIR and CAMELOT styles, pus the FLYER and MONTEROSSO sneaker-style shoes. Among the women’s line up, the KUBANA, MARQUESSA and ISABEL styles are seen as the most appealing models in the U.S.

Majority of Branson (Missouri) Courses Open and Welcoming Players

BRANSON, MO – Branson golf courses, increasingly becoming known as some of the best in America, are embracing players with smart, timely, and player friendly best practices as the 2020 season begins.

The majority of the area’s 10 courses, including two that have opened within the past 12 months, are welcoming players while implementing CDC best practices designed to diminish Coronavirus risk. Precluding groups of 10 or more people from gathering, disinfecting equipment and infrastructure, and many other proactive measures are ongoing.

Following is additional news from some Branson Golf playing venues.

  1. The Pointe Golf Club is asking players to leave the flag sticks in the hole, removing ball washers from the golf course, not putting water coolers on the course, and removing rakes from sand traps. Staff is raking bunkers as often as possible, and the club is asking players to use their feet to create a decent lie.
  2. Branson Hills Golf Club has extended the winter rate of $79 through the end of April and has a new special local rate of $59. It is transferring shotgun tournaments to tee time formats with all prizes and scoring being done by email (to preclude group gatherings.  To-go containers of food are offered.
  3. LedgeStone Country Club is power washing all golf cars and using disinfectant wipes on seats, steering wheels and any other touch points. The club issued the following statement: “LedgeStone is located on 325 acres that encompass over a mile from our north to south boundaries. With 10-minute tee times, our players are spread out and they use their own equipment. We feel an obligation to provide people with the option of a healthy and active lifestyle location at a time when everyone needs it.”
  4. Big Cedar Lodge, home to five of the 10 area courses, has hand sanitizer in all clubhouses for guest use. They are stocked at the pro shop counter and by the exits, free to use. Like the other Branson Golf courses, Big Cedar is closely monitoring CDC directives and reacting accordingly, including disinfecting frequently and thoroughly.

Branson Golf provides a first-class collection of courses in the glorious natural wonder that is the Ozarks.
