PGA extends Golfbidder partnership

12.17am 4th April 2008 - Corporate

The PGA has extended its partnership with Golfbidder – the official PGA Club Exchange. A new five-year agreement has been drawn up with the Surrey-based company following the conclusion of an already successful five year partnership.

Since its inception seven years ago, Golfbidder has grown to become Europe’s biggest buyer and seller of second-hand clubs.

Golfbidder uses a sophisticated counterfeit screening processes and new technologies such as proprietary 3D imaging to provide web customers throughout Europe with complete peace of mind about what they are buying.

This allows Golfbidder to offer PGA pros a guaranteed price for used clubs – improving their cash flow and removing the risk of taking part-exchanges.

As a result PGA professionals have been reaping the benefits of the association with Golfbidder, who were keen to continue their relationship with the Belfry-based PGA and its army of members.

“We are very pleased to have extended our partnership with the PGA, it has been a very long and prosperous relationship and we are delighted it is continuing,” said Golfbidder managing director Liam Robb.

“Our association with the PGA helps reinforce the image that we are a reliable company. We help the whole golfing industry by oiling the cogs of the retail market to make it easy for people to trade in their old clubs.”

PGA chief executive Sandy Jones welcomed the renewed relationship. “Golfbidder offer a tremendous service to the golfing community and the Association is pleased to continue working in partnership with them,” he said.

“The PGA pro is right at the heart of this industry and their involvement and knowledge is both valued and vital, even more so with a rise in counterfeit clubs which are impossible to spot to the untrained eye.

“Golfbidder offers an excellent and safe service to both pros and the public taking away the risk and offering a deterrent to the counterfeiters.”
