Golf Town -> Golfsmith

6 posts in this topic

A few years ago they opened a bunch of Golf Town stores around MA, but I got an email a few days ago that they were transitioning to Golfsmiths. I liked Golf Town, but Golfsmith is nice too. Anyone know if this transition is only the U.S. stores (which, so far as I know, are only in MA so far), or is this the Canadian stores as well?

Golf Town acquired Golfsmith last year. A better, faster entry strategy to the US market. Up to that point,they'd only opened a handful of US stores in MA. I would imagine the Golfsmith brand is better known in the US so that's what they'll go with in the States and keep te Golf Town brand here in Canada, where it is by far the leading golf retailer.

The store in Reading, MA changed the sign last month.  I went in yesterday and the staff was all different people. I hope folks didn't lose jobs over this.  The store doesn't seem much different inside.

Interesting. I just went to the Golf Town in Seekonk for the very first time about a week ago (got a driver given to me re-gripped) and I was in complete and total gear overload. My neck was on a swivel looking at everything in that place! I'll be interested to see what happens to the store/inventory with it becoming Golfsmith. Up to now (which hasn't been that long) I've bought my gear at Dicks which is only 5 minutes from me, but the Golf Town/Golfsmith store is only 12-13 minutes from my office so I may end up there a bunch.

I hope not, I've got a few friends who worked there, and the staffs (I've been to the Natick, Bellingham, and Northborough stores) were always nice.

    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      When you post a video showing your progress only to get ripped apart for other parts of your swing that are not a priority it makes you want to never post again.   I'm very disappointed in the behavior of a lot of the instructors on here.   lets review the timeline.  First I posted a video of me working on my shallowing swing.  I never stated it was perfect.  I get a response saying my backswing is wrong. I follow up asking why it matters if I hit other positions correctly. i get told "because" I follow up asking why it matters if my backswing is off if my downswing hits key checkpoints. I get told I am not hitting the spots.  I ask why not stating my angles are where my coach outlined them to be. I get shown my angles are wrong.  I counter stating they are still shallow and match that of pros.   I get told angles don't matter. (Even though I was wrong before because my angles were off.) This goes ignored and I get told my backswing is wrong. I detail my Evolvr coach doesn't have my backswing as a priority because he liked my positions at A4 and 5.  These get ignored.  I point out my friend has the same shallow to slightly steep and is told his swing is perfect and his Evolr coach says no changes are needed in his swing.  It's great as is.  I follow up why his shallow to steep is fine and mine isn't.  These comments get ignored.    Yet I am the one with the ego problem...
    • Your best golfing bargain
      I have one that I think maybe could top them all . . . I got a year membership with full golf privileges at a private club in exchange for an old sofa that I put on Craigslist and didn't even think would sell. I got an email - "Is the sofa still available - would you consider trade for golf membership" - totally out of the blue.    edit-  the guy had recently won it in a raffle of some sort.
