Growing Our Brand

GOLFTEC Responds to Golfsmith closures by building new standalone centers.


Following Golfsmith's recent absorption into Golf Galaxy, GOLFTEC has finalized plans to open more than 30 brand new, standalone Improvement Centers in early 2017.

GOLFTEC has just come off a record year in 2016, which continues its strong, year-over-year growth. The recent closing of many Golfsmith locations, some of which independently housed co-located GOLFTECs, has enabled GOLFTEC to accelerate plans for new standalone locations that offer Students an improved learning experience from an entirely new in-center design and layout.

"It's going to be an exciting year for GOLFTEC in 2017," said GolfTEC CEO Joe Assell. "While Golfsmith's transition into Golf Galaxy happened quickly, it presented an opportunity for us to rapidly accelerate our desire for more standalone locations that feature our new in-center design and an improved student experience.

"We appreciate those students who have beared with us through the transition until their standalone Center opens, but we're confident these positive changes will pay dividends to their GOLFTEC experience and our continued mission to help people play better golf."

Background Information:
  • GOLFTEC's top priority is ensuring our Students' continued golf improvement with as little disruption as possible. We sincerely appreciate your understanding as we actively pursue options for a seamless transition process.

  • GOLFTEC is not tied to Golfsmith. We are an independent, healthy company reporting record year-over-year growth.

  • GOLFTEC is an independent golf instruction business that previously co-located within some, but not all, Golfsmith locations. The Golfsmith transition has merely accelerated GOLFTEC's plans to build new, standalone locations in the vast majority of affected markets in the coming months.

  • We encourage Students to directly reach out to their Certified Personal Coaches with specific questions, as our Coaches have the most up-to-date information and should always be the first point of contact.
