AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Golfsmith International, the world’s largest specialty golf retailer, today purchased the assets of Golf Dimensions, a leading Myrtle Beach golf retailer with a long history of success. 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.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to build on Golf Dimensions’ history of serving Myrtle Beach golfers for more than 25 years,” said Sue Gove, President and CEO, Golfsmith International. “Golf Dimension’s dedication to serving the golfer perfectly aligns with our Anything for Golf brand promise to consumers. We look forward to enhancing the customer experience even further with a major renovation this summer that will offer North Myrtle Beach shoppers an unrivaled golf retail experience.”
Bobby Smith, Founding Owner of Golf Dimensions, added, “It has been an honor and a privilege for our family to build Golf Dimensions into one of the country’s largest independent golf-only retailers. Golfsmith shares our passion for serving golfers and, after 25 successful years, we are proud to pass the baton to Golfsmith and move on to the next phase of our professional lives. I’d like to thank our many customers and partners for their loyal support.”
In addition to signing a long-term lease agreement for the North Myrtle Beach store, Golfsmith International will take over management of the Callaway Performance Center at Barefoot Resort and Golf. The Golf Dimensions on Highway 501 in South Myrtle Beach will be closing.
