ATLANTA, Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PGA TOUR Superstore is ushering in a new experience for golfers in the Houston area when doors open November 12th at 9:00 am for the grand opening of its first interactive retail store. The 45,500 square foot location is at the Portofino Shopping Center in the former Sports Authority location at 19075 Interstate 45 N.
As the anchor tenant of the Portofino Shopping Center at the Woodlands, PGA TOUR Superstore will be staffed with PGA of America teaching professionals and have 11 state-of-the-art swing simulators and hitting bays, and an expansive putting green along with an in-house club making and repair facility to provide a unique, interactive experience to golf enthusiasts of all levels.
The PGA TOUR Superstore's new Woodland's layout is its 27th store in the U.S. and will be the largest golf and tennis specialty retail store in the area. The Woodlands location is the company's fourth in Texas joining Plano - Accent Drive, Plano - Preston Rd, and Southlake.
The grand opening celebration includes $30,000 in product giveaways to the first customers in line and a $15,000 donation to The First Tee of Greater Houston.
"Houston is a premier market for golfers and tennis players, and the Woodlands is an ideal location to introduce what we believe is the best experience in golf retail," said PGA TOUR Superstore President and CEO Dick Sullivan. "Despite some other golf retailers that have closed stores this year, our brand is redefining "the experience" and continues to expand into new markets across the country. We are bullish and remain focused on delivering an unparalleled retail experience with huge product assortments for golf and tennis and passionate people who continue to allow us to grow."
In addition to the Woodlands, PGA TOUR Superstore recently announced it will open three new stores in 2017. They recently acquired another Sports Authority location in Glendale, Arizona and will also add locations in Hilton Head, South Carolina and Jacksonville, Florida also slated to open next year.
"Our experiential model serves golfers of all abilities from those just beginning to learn the game to avid low-handicappers," added Sullivan. "We couldn't be more optimistic about our future and we will continue to focus on inspiring our customers to love the game as much as we do."
The Woodlands PGA TOUR Superstore grand opening event will take place November 12 with doors opening 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and include $30,000 in giveaways to the first people in line, putting contests and swing evaluations.
