Golf is one of the UK’s most popular sports, and as well as the golf professional shop at many courses, specialist golf shops can also be found in most towns and cities to cater for the enthusiasts that play the game. Advances in technology and the use of new materials has played its part in giving the sales at golf shops a huge boost as golfers upgrade or replace their older clubs and other equipment.
A huge expansion in the variety of golf courses means that many people who would have previously found the sport too expensive, can join new parkland or field courses at reasonable prices. Apart from traditional bricks and mortar golf shops, the upsurge in demand for the game has also meant that many internet base retailers can also supply equipment at competitive prices.
The list of equipment required to play golf may seem daunting for the new player, but with a bag, a selection of drivers, irons, putter, balls and tees, they can soon be playing their new found sport. The golf shops have specialist staff who also play the game themselves and can advise on accessories required such as clothing, shoes , trolleys and where to get lessons.
