American Golf is very pleased to announce that Nicky Lumb has asked the company to take over his retail operations at Hambrook, Bristol. Nicky has built Hambrook into one of the best regarded golf destinations in the UK and now he is moving on to pastures new, he is entrusting that legacy to American Golf.
Nicky commented, “It was a hard decision to leave the business but having put a lot of thought into choosing my successors at Hambrook, now is definitely the right time to partner with American Golf. The commitment they show to quality of service and to growing the game of golf convinced me that they are the right people to take the business forward and I’m confident that my loyal customers will continue to get great service from their staff and PGA Professionals.”
The official transfer of the store took place on 12th May, and American Golf has been working hard with Nicky to ensure that Hambrook’s reputation for high quality, game improving service, continues.
The facilities at Hambrook comprise Pirate Adventure Golf, Driving Range and Starbucks as well as the new store. It is a facility focussed on providing golfing opportunities for the whole family and presents the fun side of golf that is so important to driving participation in the game.
Tony Walsh, Director of Retail Operations commented, “We’ve got a fantastic opportunity at Hambrook to help grow the game of golf. It’s a fun place for the whole family to visit and through the expert advice of our PGA professionals we can help every golfer find the right golf equipment for their game. If they’re an absolute beginner or a single figure handicapper we’ve got the people in store who can help move their game forward.”
Expectations are high at Hambrook due to the legacy left behind by Nicky, but with his vote of confidence and a team ready to deliver great customer service focussed on helping golfers improve their game, the future looks bright at the newest American Golf store.
