Portland, Oregon November 11, 2010- Destined to become one of the Internet’s premier golf equipment destinations, GolfClubs.com, Inc. today announced the grand opening of its e-commerce website and retail store. Based out of Portland, Oregon, GolfClubs.com is a full service golf retailer offering club fitting, swing analysis and equipment sales.

Local Portland entrepreneurs founded the company in March 2010. “Having had a successful soft opening in late summer, we are excited about the future,” says GolfClubs.com general manager David Kromer. “Website sales have been steadily growing and we are just starting to build awareness in the local market. We’ve got an upcoming Groupon offer for local customers that will give them a $50 store credit for just $25. We expect that will be a very popular gift idea for the holidays.” adds Kromer.
The GolfClubs.com retail store and warehouse is at 809 SE Sherman Street in Portland. The website offers unique value to its customers in several ways. Every club is hand inspected before being shipped so that it will arrive in perfect condition. Unlike competing websites, all purchases of golf clubs and most orders over $99 receive free shipping. Additionally, as a company based in Oregon, there is no sales tax collected on any order. Finally, the company will instantly price match all authorized US dealers so every customer receives the lowest available price on every item purchased. The website is designed for the golfer looking to browse products online, read great reviews, and find top of the line equipment, all in one place and at the best prices on the web.
