Golf World salutes the men and
women who keep us well-equipped, dressed for all conditions and informed
about the next breakthrough product. In particular, we pay tribute to
those retailers (both on- and off-course) who, as judged by the
Association of Golf Merchandisers and GW senior editor E. Michael
Johnson, excelled and earned a place among Golf World's 100
Best Golf Shops for 2011. Their shops ranged in size from a few hundred
to more than 20,000 square feet, but each came up big in offering fresh
merchandise, sound advice, inviting displays and service that kept us
coming back. Our 100 Best consists of 25 shops in each of four
categories: private, resort, public and off-course. A dozen facilities
made the list, begun in 1986, for the first time. Winners come from 29
states, Scotland and the Bahamas. It's an impressive group.
Golf may be a game of tradition, but golf retailing today is anything
but. The continued presence of big-box stores and online entities
selling golf products has required professionals, merchandisers and
specialty-store owners to become increasingly innovative in what is now a
big business. Our winning shops this year totaled more than $200
million in sales. However, even in the face of such numbers, golf retail
remains about people. Often the engine driving the stores and shops on
this list is an individual (or group of individuals) with vision,
creativity and discipline, coupled with a work ethic to envy. You may
call them winners or smart businessmen. We call them our 100 Best.
Once again in 2010, GOLFWORLD, designates Joe & Leigh's Discount Golf Pro Shop as one of America's Top 100 Golf Shops. This is Joe & Leigh's 17th, "Top 100" distinction.
At the annual PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL, Golf Digest hosts a TOP 100 Golf Shops in America, awards celebration. Here's a short video of it!
