Golfsmith Opens Interactive, 25,000-Square Foot Golf Playground Becoming St. Louis Area’s Largest Golf Retail Experience

Stocks in this article: GOLF

Golfers in the St. Louis area will benefit as the competition between golf stores heats up with the entry of the country’s largest golf retailer. Golfsmith Golf & Tennis officially opens the St. Louis area’s largest golf retail experience on Friday, March 18, 2011 at 8:00 AM. During the grand opening on Friday and Saturday, March 18 & 19, dozens of golf enthusiasts are expected to camp out to claim more than $40,000 worth of free merchandise and giveaways.

“The St. Louis market was vastly underserved by retailers who offer the technology, products and expertise to empower everyone to play better, until now. We’re proud to provide a whole new retail experience to golfers and tennis players,” said Golfsmith President and CEO Marty Hanaka. “This is one of our most technologically advanced stores featuring custom fitting studios, a free indoor driving range, a huge putting green and exclusive deals golfers won’t find anywhere else. We welcome all to stop in and experience how Golfsmith can help improve their game.”

Golfsmith’s entry into the St. Louis market signifies a major shift in the way players are outfitted and served. The 25,000 square-foot store, located in the Des Peres Center at 11955 Manchester Road, is a golfer’s interactive playground. What differentiates Golfsmith is the ability for customers to test-drive the hottest new clubs right inside the store. It features a five-bay indoor golf driving range (free for anyone to use), a large putting green, two hi-tech custom-fitting studios, and thousands of golf accessories in addition to the latest styles of men’s and women’s fashions. Instead of buying off-the-shelf, Golfsmith’s focus is to use high-tech golf analysis and custom fitting systems to custom-fit players to enhance their game with just the right equipment at guaranteed low prices. The new Golfsmith is located on Manchester Road near Lindeman Road, approximately one mile east of the West County Center Shopping Mall in the former Schnuck’s Shopping Center.
