Golfbidder, Europe’s biggest buyer and seller of used golf clubs, has become a Corporate Partner, and the Official Club Exchange of the PGAs of Europe, in an initial 5-year agreement.

The ever-expanding and pioneering business that has been a respected Partner of the PGA (of GB&I) for many years is now widening its reach to an even broader European market.

“We have taken out a long-term commitment to each other because we share the same philosophy – that of building an enduring relationship which helps club pros and retailers in Europe in the same way they do in the UK,” said Ian Randell, the PGAs of Europe chief executive.

“Golfbidder have enjoyed a strong relationship with the PGA (of GB&I) here at The Belfry for many years and I’m very pleased to welcome them aboard as our ‘Official Club Exchange’ Partner. I’ve received excellent reports about the quality and professional nature of the service that they provide for PGA professionals. Golfbidder already employs in-house multi-lingual staff to provide great service to pro’s in Europe and I’m quite certain this marks the start of an excellent partnership for us both.”

“I would encourage all PGA professionals across our member countries to visit to learn more about the way Golfbidder can help retailers of new golf equipment increase their turnover. There is also a useful section on how to spot counterfeit equipment.”

Liam Robb was equally enthusiastic about the five-year agreement; one that extends their potential contacts across the 37 Member Countries and their respective membership totaling some 18,500 PGA professionals across Europe and beyond.

“We are increasingly providing solutions for club pros in Europe – removing the risk they normally take when accepting part-exchanges.” explained Robb. “Joining forces with Ian and the team at PGAs of Europe was a natural step for us, and will complement our successful partnership with the PGA. I look forward to an equally long and beneficial relationship.”
