ATLANTA, June 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PGA TOUR Superstore is ushering in a new experience for Twin Cities golfers in Minnetonka when doors open June 11 at 9:00 am for the grand opening of its first interactive retail store.

"We are in the business of inspiring all types of golfers – from beginners to scratch golfers – to play the game and find everything they need under one roof. With the amount of golf played in the area, and The Ryder Cup coming to the Twin Cities this fall, it's a great time for us to open our first store here."
