Cheesebrough Wood Rakes & Wooden Flagsticks
PO Box 41
Freeport MI 49325
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. Their 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 efforts.
"Presentation is everything!" A common refrain in a competitive world. Cheesebrough's goal is to offer durable products that will assist you in enhancing the presentation of your property. We take pleasure in the fact that the quality and elegance of our products gives them the ability to charm the world's most discerning individuals on your behalf.
COST vs VALUE
Yes, Cheesebrough goods are expensive, and we recognize they are not for everyone. Annual cost is very competitive, however, 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 your receiving from your current grounds tools?
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, or able, to do the handwork. It does allow us to offer products that are easily recognized as more crafted than manufactured, and that by American craftsmen. We hope our goods will add 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 us and the continued operation of this old company. Our goal is that we give you good value in service, and in blending into the presentation you work to achieve. If you determine to use our goods and ever have reason to be disappointed, please call and allow us to make it right for you.
NOTE: Cheesebrough was experiencing a record breaking spring season when fire destroyed our mill in March of 2013. That growth, along with rebuilding the company, has stretched us thin. We are now in a good position to manufacture our stock line of wooden accessories, and will get back into custom work when we have finished building the specialty machinery needed to reduce the hand labor currently required.
