W orldwide Golf Shops is always striving to improve its game – and with that goal in mind, the company has recently opened stores at three new locations. There's a brand-new Edwin Watts Golf store in Ellenton, Florida, while the Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Edwin Watts Golf shop has been relocated to Pompano Beach, and the Walnut Creek Golf Mart in California has moved to a convenient downtown space. > The Ellenton store, which opened May 1, serves a need by filling a geographical gap be- tween shops in Tampa and Sara- sota. At 4,500 square feet, it has an extensive selection of equip- ment, shoes, bags and apparel. "Golfers will find great cus- tomer service and product selec- tion as well as state-of-the-art fitting tools," said Erich Mum- ford, a Regional Manager for Worldwide Golf Shops in Florida. "This store will offer customers all they need to get better and have more fun playing golf." > In Pompano Beach, Edwin Watts Golf was able to find a bet- ter location than its Ft. Laud- erdale store and in proximity to the 36-hole Pompano Beach Golf Course, one of the busiest public tracks in Florida. It's also more convenient because the store is centrally located within a major shopping and dining district, and at 8,000 square feet there's plenty of space for all the latest gear. "It is a brighter and more shopper-friendly store," Mum- ford said of the shop, which opened April 28. "Our state-of- the-art fitting bays, repair center and selection of gear will give golfers everything they need." > The new Walnut Creek store in California opened April 11 and held a grand opening event a week later. The massive 15,000-square-foot shop is more than twice the size of the previ- ous one, and it features easier freeway access and more parking. It also has increased its number of fitting bays to four. "The grand opening event was very well received, with a great turnout all three days," said Mike Hasselman, the regional manager for The Golf Mart in Northern California. "All of us involved were like proud parents showing off our child. The reaction from customers and vendors has been nothing but positive." Edwin Watts in Ellenton, Florida.
