Golfsmith International Announces Opening of 26,000 Square-Foot Superstore in Houston

Golfsmith International is bolstering its Houston presence again with the opening of a 26,000 square-foot superstore in the city's bustling Champions neighborhood. The new store features custom fitting capabilities and an interactive, try-before-you-buy environment--enabling golfers of all skills levels to work with Golfsmith experts to test and select the ideal gear for their game. The company's new Champions location, situated in Northwest Houston on FM 1960 near Willowbrook Mall, brings the company's Houston footprint to six stores in one of the country's golf markets. The new store includes four custom fitting studios, an expansive putting green and massive product selection of the best brands in golf, as well as GolfTEC training studios with PGA teaching professionals and Certified Master Club Fitters to help golfers improve their games. It also provides a relaxing space for golfers who simply want to stop by and talk with like-minded golf nuts, hit some putts or swing the latest gear in a simulator.

Golfsmith International to Open Second Myrtle Beach Store

Golfsmith International purchased the assets of Golf Dimensions. As part of the deal, Golfsmith International will transition Golf Dimensions' North Myrtle Beach store to the Golfsmith brand and perform a complete remodel. The company will open a Golfsmith Xtreme store at this location with the latest custom-fitting technology and unmatched selection of the best brands in golf. The move is part of Golfsmith International's continued growth strategy, with plans to open eight new U.S. stores this year including the North Myrtle Beach location. Golfsmith's existing Myrtle Beach store opened in 2013 and has quickly earned acclaim from the Myrtle Beach golf community -- recognized as one of the country's most passionate, and knowledgeable, golf markets.
