05/29/2013

The world’s largest golf retailer has come to the game’s most popular destination.

Golfsmith has opened its first Myrtle Beach store, a 35-000-square-foot golfer’s playground that will become a must-stop for area visitors.

“Myrtle Beach is a premiere golf travel destination in the US and we knew we needed to be there in a big way” said Drew Mitchell, Golfsmith’s Director of Field Marketing.

Mission accomplished.

The Golfsmith Xtreme store, located adjacent to Coastal Grande Mall on Highway 17 bypass, features the game's most advanced simulators, a huge selection of golf clubs, apparel, accessories, and the expertise to assist customers in the buying process.

The store includes five custom fit simulators, five open hitting bays with club fitting technology, and a huge practice putting green.

Best of all, Golfsmith will employ a team of experts to make sure consumers can use the in-store technology to benefit them on the course.

Players will also have the chance to experience three levels of club fittings:

  • The Smart Fit option is a free fitting that last upwards of 30 minutes and helps you determine the proper specs for clubs, including loft, lie, grip size and more.

 

  • The Advanced Custom Fitting is a 45-minute program that includes a complete equipment analysis rendered by a certified Master Club Fitter. The Advanced Custom Fitting is $49.99 but is free with a qualifying equipment purchase.

 

  • The crème de la crème is the GolfTEC Fitting, a one-hour program that will have your swing and clubs working in lockstep, conducted by a PGA professional. The $99 price tag is a small price to pay for a fitting that allows you to maximize performance.  


GolfTEC, which provides 20 percent of lessons nationwide, also has an instruction center in the store as well.

To celebrate the opening of its Myrtle Beach Xtreme store, Golfsmith is having a grand opening event May 31 through June 2. On May 31 and June 1, Golfsmith will be giving away a $1,000 shopping spree at 9:15 a.m. each morning (so get there at 8 a.m. to register). You must be present to win.

Golfsmith will be giving away irons, golf balls, rangefinders and more throughout the weekend. There will also be a $10,000 hole in one contest on one of the simulators on Saturday and Sunday

On Saturday, June 1, there will be an outdoor block party, featuring live music, a kid’s zone with inflatable bounce houses, face painting and more.

Golfsmith International operates more than 150 stores in the United States and Canada under the brand Golfsmith in the US and Golf Town in Canada, making it the world’s largest golf-only retailer.
