The Golf Factory, which offers the biggest selection of quality new and used golf equipment in the North East of England, has expanded into new premises at Stephenson Industrial Estate, Killingworth, Tyne and Wear.
Previously based on the West Road in Newcastle the new-improved Golf Factory offers golfers a full repair service centre, practice putting green, indoor swing room and simulator and stocks a vast array of both new and used golf equipment.
The move to new state-of-the-art premises follows a sustained period of growth in customer demand for the Golf Factory, and is part of a wider business plan to also grow online sales and awareness nationally.
Ronnie Tweedy, co-owner of The Golf Factory, said: “This is a milestone in the history of our journey so far, and everyone connected to the store and its development. The Golf Factory started out as a hobby of mine seven years ago, buying and selling golf equipment from my home conservatory.
“Since then, we have grown significantly and have assembled a great team of golf experts and staff in store. We have invested substantially in the new shop alterations, repair centre, putting green and simulator and now provide golfers with an unrivalled and seamless golf retail experience.
“I am also immensely proud that I managed to prize my fellow golfers and customers, Newcastle United and England football legend, Alan Shearer and Olympic triple-jump world record holder Jonathan Edwards, away from the golf course to officially open the new store.”
Shearer said: “The new facilities are very impressive. I met Ronnie on the golf course at Close House a few years ago and, as a regular customer of the Golf Factory, I wish Ronnie and the team every success in the future.”
Edwards added: “Like most golfers, I’m forever trying to improve my game and reduce my handicap. The vast array of new and used equipment and new facilities are very impressive and I’m delighted to help support this local business and its development.”
Along with a wide selection of golf equipment, the new-improved Golf Factory also provides golfers with a full repair service for all golf clubs plus refurbishment and re-grooving service. A while-you-wait re-gripping service for clubs and putters is available.
