AKRON, Ohio-- Life in Akron is getting a whole lot better for local golfers with the opening of a 21,000 square-feet Golfsmith store, providing an unrivaled retail experience in the city’s largest golf specialty store. Offering an interactive, try-before-you-buy environment, Golfsmith’s newest Ohio location enables golfers of all skills levels to work with Golfsmith’s experts to test and select the ideal gear for their game.
Golfsmith’s Akron location, located on Route 18 in the Akron suburb of Fairlawn, brings the company’s Ohio footprint to five stores. It includes four custom fitting studios, an expansive putting green and massive product selection of the best brands in golf, as well as GolfTEC training studios with PGA teaching professionals and Certified Master Club Fitters. Golfsmith stores provide a relaxing space for golfers who simply want to stop by and talk with like-minded golf nuts, hit some putts or swing the latest gear in a simulator.
“Golf is much more than a game in Ohio, with a rich championship history and strong player community that extends to Akron,” said Golfsmith International Chief Marketing Officer, Lisa Zoellner. “As the success of our other Ohio stores shows, this atmosphere is an ideal fit for the unique customer experience Golfsmith delivers. We look forward to showing Akron golfers that we will do Anything for Golf, with unrivaled service and expertise and our FAIR-WAY purchase assurance guarantee.”
