This store definitely caters to men and not women. Their selection of women's golf attire and accessories is very slim. Whenever I have entered this store, I could spend several minutes without anyone asking if they could help me. I have even entered the store and left because nobody paid any attention to me. They need to have a woman work there who can successfully cater to the female golfer! Maybe that would help.

Maybe it was a bad day for them but my experience was that the service is non-existent. I wouldn't say bad just non-existent, which they are supposed to be a specialty shop, providing service. Strangely, I felt a bit like I had just walked into a boys-only club.

I wanted to have proper clothes for the golf course. I was looking around for maybe 15 or 20 minutes, not much selection to see. There were polo shirts for $60 - $70! And they were too big. Couldn't find any slacks that might fit, also too big. The shoes were ugly and look uncomfortable.

And only when I had already exited the store and was actually standing on the sidewalk a guy called out weakly, "Thank you mam..." (That was first time anyone in the store had even acknowledged me...AFTER I had already left). It's kind of funny but also true. If they were content to pretend they didn't know I was there all that time, then what's the point in telling me they knew I was there all along, as I'm walking out the door?

Oh well, there are PLENTY of other places to buy gear. I don't pay extra for personal service at Walmart and I don't get it; that's reasonable. I would've been willing and able to pay more for quality gear and some service, even if it were just ok service.

Sorry this is negative, but I'm trying to tell my review. Not 'Horrible' but far from great. Maybe you will find it better than I did, but I was surprised; we are in a recession aren't we?

This is an excellent place to shop for golf equipment. The salespeople are quite knowledgeable and they were extremely helpful when I went in there to purchase golf shoes.
