Europe's Leading Golf Retailer

 

American Golf is Europe's largest golf retailer. Established in 1978, they now have over 100 stores in the UK and Republic of Ireland which stocks a full range of golfing equipment. They pride themselves on giving the very best service and after-sales care.

 

Achieving the right balance

 

The challenge for American Golf is achieving the right balance so one channel doesn’t cannibalize the other. “We have a lot of visits on American Golf online, but a lot of people are looking for stores and the conversion on the website is poor, so it’s about making the most of every single visit”, says Gathercole.

Bigger results week on week

 

Gathercole notes that from the time of launch, the number of bookings has increased week on week. “We are doing over 200 bookings now and the conversion from our three different types of appointments has also been strong.”

Becoming competitive

 

Dan says, “The key to this for us is being able to do exactly what the pro shops can do and to become a real alternative to the pro golf shop. So now we can see lessons, you can book tee times and buy golf equipment from us.”
