PGA TOUR Superstore is ushering in a new experience for the Hilton Head /Bluffton area golfers and tennis enthusiasts with an April 1 at 9:00 am grand opening of its first interactive retail store, the largest golf and tennis store in the area. The 25,000 square foot location is at 1129 Fording Island Road Bluffton, SC 29910, near the Home Depot at the intersection of U.S. 278 and Burnt Church Road and will be an anchor in the Bluffton Crossing shopping center.
Hilton Head marks the company’s 29th store in the U.S. and the third location in South Carolina (joining Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach locations). The grand opening celebration includes $30,000 in product giveaways to the first customers in line and a $15,000 donation that will benefit area youth golfers through The First Tee of The LowCountry.
One (part time) Lowcountry resident is especially pleased PGA TOUR Superstore is coming to town.
“I’m thrilled our brand is making a new home in such a terrific location visited by many who share the same passion for golf and tennis as I do,” said PGA TOUR Superstore controlling owner Arthur Blank, owner of the Atlanta Falcons and retired co-founder of Home Depot. “We’re excited to provide an unparalleled retail experience and to give back to the community with The First Tee of The LowCountry.”
PGA TOUR Superstore’s new location will employ up to 25 associates including “certified teaching professionals,” and will include four interactive simulators; practice hitting bays, an expansive 1,100 square foot putting green and an in-house club-making and repair facility to provide a unique, interactive experience to golf enthusiasts of all levels. In addition the store will offer 4,000 square feet of soft goods, 3,500 square feet of hard goods and 2,000 square feet of footwear.
For tennis enthusiasts, the locale offers the top tennis brands and a variety of equipment from racquets and shoes to apparel. Certified professional stringers are also in store to fit you with the racquet, string, string tension and grip size that best suits your game.
“With the amount of golf and tennis played year-round in the Hilton Head area this is an ideal marketplace to expand our brand presence and provide the best retail experience for sports enthusiasts,” said PGA TOUR Superstore President and CEO Dick Sullivan. “We are committed to inspire all types of golfers and tennis players – from beginners to avids – to play the game and find everything they need under one roof. We will deliver an unprecedented assortment of products and unmatched service to the locals and those who visit the area.”
PGA TOUR Superstore is also teaming up with First Tee of The Lowcountry in Hilton Head Island and will present a check at the Grand Opening for $15,000 to help inspire the next generation of golfers at the chapter’s three programming locations (two on the island and one in Bluffton).
