Following their success at Bawtry Golf Club, Golf Business Specialists, responsible for the Proshop Revolution, have been working closely Swindon & Styrrup Hall with outstanding results. To achieve such growth in the current market is staggering.

“Appointing Golf Business Specialists was one of my better decisions,” said Richard Allen, Head Professional Styrrup Hall Golf & Country Club.

“Their understanding of marketing, store layout, sales training and proven retail strategies is second to none. If like me, you can honestly say that retail isn’t your strong point and you prefer to focus on teaching and playing, then get in touch with GBS because what they don’t know about retail isn’t worth knowing. They will review every aspect of your business and work with you to help you achieve sales and margins that you never dreamt possible.”

“In partnership with Golf Business Specialists, we have completely redesigned the store and created a shop that members now love to browse in. They have a pro shop to be proud of and this is already reflecting in both turnover and profitability,” said James Wright Head Professional Swindon Golf Club

“We are seeing more retail loyalty from the members and I am confident that this will continue over the coming months. If you give your members good deals, a great looking store and excellent professional service, why would they make costly journeys to go elsewhere. Join the Proshop Revolution, it costs you nothing upfront and you only pay if they make a difference. I did and it’s changed our future!”

A growing number of forward thinking golf professionals are benefitting from this unique service. New clients in August included GaryBrown at Ganton Golf Club and Paul Ashwell at Wyboston Lakes
