Golf Gear & More – Expect the Expected and Unexpected
Visiting the newly opened Golf Gear &More in Murphy is just like playing a great game of golf; they are both a fun mixture of the expected and unexpected. Shoppers will find a wide variety of the expected golf apparel, golf clubs, golf balls and other related golf merchandise. Shoppers will also find the unexpected, such as motion sensor toilet lights, garden gnomes, blue tooth speakers, poker cards, grilling rubs and so much more. Golfers will be delighted to see that they stock the Triton which was named the winner of Wilson’s “Driver vs Driver” golf channel reality show.
Vito Savino, Murphy resident and co-owner of Golf Gear and More, reports that they chose Murphy as their business location for a variety of reasons: Murphy has a strong golf clientele, Murphy residents appreciate local businesses and prefer to shop with locals and there is a scarcity of golf stores nearby.
In addition to the merchandise, they offer many services such as analyzing golf swings, fitting customers for clubs, club replacement and grip repair (while you wait). Custom corporate level apparel, from small to larger orders, can be placed here. They have their own ‘Strike it’ brand that was developed exclusively for Golf Gear & More. They are applying for their tobacco license and will sell cigars when licensed.
Ray Sadler (Murphy resident) and Gene Honermann are the other two owners of this exciting new business. The three business owners are combining their areas of expertise of marketing (Sadler and Honermann), golf business (Honermann) and start up business (Savino) to put forth a retail location that will offer what people like.
They feel Golf Gear & More is an intimate, informal and informed local golf store. Since their opening on November 22, 2016, they have found business to be good. Their one year goal is to develop a great customer base and get their foot in the community. During their grand opening, as a way to give back to the community, members of Murphy Fire and Rescue Department served items from the grill accepting donations benefitting Guns and Hoses. Honermann is the current president of Guns and Hoses (Guns and Hoses is a 501c3 organization dedicated to assisting the families of fallen first responders who have lost their lives in the line of duty.). Their five year goal includes franchising Golf Gear & More.
Every week they hold a drawing for a patio heater. (In summer months the prize will be a mini-refrigerator.)
