Golfsmith Enters Vegas
Golfsmith International, along with the very successful Golf Tec Learning
Center inside, opened its first Southern Nevada retail location in the golf-focused community of Summerlin in northwest Las Vegas. The newest
Golfsmith store in the nation has occupied a 23,000 square-foot spot in the
long awaited Howard Hughes Development Downtown Summerlin next
to high-end shops, restaurants and the trendy grocery chain Trader Joe’s.
They offer a unique retail store experience within an interactive setting -
staying true to Golfsmith’s “anything for golf” standard.
“We are excited to have joined the Las Vegas golf community as a
resource for everything golf,” said Golfsmith International Chief Marketing
Officer, Lisa Zoellner. “As always, we strive to deliver the best specialty golf
retail experience, services and products to our customers.”
The new store features four indoor club fitting and teaching bays with
golf simulators and launch monitors to complement the advice of their
certified Golfsmith Master Club Fitters. It also has a large indoor putting
green and a Golf TEC performance improvement center with PGA teaching
professional Tim Sam moving over full-time from his other ongoing stand-
alone teaching facility in Henderson as the Director of Instruction.
Downtown Summerlin is becoming one of the premier regional mixed-use development sites in the U.S. as part of part of a planned urban
center which serves the entire Las Vegas Valley with over 125 shops
and restaurants in an open-air shopping environment. ‘Main Street’
incorporates cooling shade features, rich desert landscaping and outdoor
dining to complement the local lifestyle. The 106-acre, 1. 6 million square
foot mixed-use development along the Clark County 215 Beltway is located
only 15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip and Airport.
