Its so nice to see in this economic climate a family with an eye on expansion and that’s what the Smith family, Paul, Bill and Muriel the very successful owners of Tenerife’s longest established Golf tour company, Going-Golfing.com have embarked on by becoming the new proud owners of Tenerife’s long established British owned Golf shop in La Chafiras. Seen by almost everyone  coming from the airport on the tf1 on the left hand side upstairs and very well established in its own right.

I spoke with the new owners about their future plans for the Golf shop and they see it linking well with their existing business due to the fact they have clients coming from all over Europe so as well as booking their tee times and hotel accommodation they can now offer deals on shoes, clubs,bags and all things golf related right down to tee’s. As for the local golfers they hope with the range of stock they will be carrying and the discounts they are offering it wont be long till The Golf shop becomes their first stop for golf products. They also hope to forge links with all the local golf society’s  and have already made inroads into that by issuing prize vouchers for their competitions.

The family have set about the shop with some gusto, when I went in I hardly recognised the place, it looks so much bigger and brighter. Bill tells me they are not stopping there, they plan to take a wall down and open up a practice/trial net area to allow customers to get a feel for the clubs before purchase. They are carrying more stock in all departments and are busy on the phone with all major suppliers to arrange to carry even more product ranges in the club, shoe,golf bags, clothing ( both for Ladies and Gents) and accessory departments. Paul says” if we don’t have it in stock, I will try my best to get it for you. “ You get the feeling just talking with him, this man means business .

Paul is the main man in the shop, with his considerable  golf experience and customer service dealing for years with golfers from all over the world,he is well placed to know the needs of golfers. He plans to stock all the top named brands in golf for clubs, Putters.wedges, golf bags, shoes and clothing  like Callaway, Taylor-Made, Adidas, Cleveland, Ping, Titleist, Nike, Mizuno,Foot Joy, Ashworth and Cobra.  Mum Muriel is helping out on the Ladies side of the shop in both the latest in clothing,shoes,gloves and in clubs for the fairer sex.

In the shop at the moment they have reduced a large number of products to make way for all the new stock that has been ordered. Some wonderful bargains on the clothing side to be had like Lady’s Callaway shoes that were 90 Euro’s they have been reduced to only 25 Euro and gents shorts from Calloway from 50 Euro to only 24.99Euro.

On the club side they have reduced all Odyssey Putters by 30% and Calloway wedges also have 30% off. If your new to golf they have a Full set of clubs (irons,woods and putter), bag and shoes, Paul says he will also throw in balls and tees, everything you need to get started for only 300 Euro.

They also have a Club repair workshop in-house where an experienced man is on hand to repair clubs, re-new grips, lengthen or shorten clubs they will even replace or renew shafts.They have in stock a large range of both club and putter grips and are running a special on re-gripping for only 4 Euro’s per club. Paul himself is very keen to learn this art and plans to go on a manufacturers course himself back in the UK as soon as possible.
