Ken Poirier, owner of Riverside Golf, is back in the neighbourhood. The store has lots of stock and great deals on clothing, shoes, clubs, cart accessories and more!

Take your golf game from bogey to birdie!

Longstanding local golf shop is back in the neighbourhood — just in time for a surge in demand

It looked for a moment like this golf season was headed for the sand trap. But with a few adjustments and some extra equipment, Ken Poirier thinks you can still score a hole in one.

Most golf courses have changed their protocols to reduce touch points and encourage physical distancing, removing benches, pausing cart and hand cart rentals, and closing canteens. That reduction in services — as well as increased interest in the sport — has kept Poirier’s Riverside Golf busy this spring.

“It’s just wave after wave. We’re working hard and doing our best to get everyone the best value on golf equipment,” he says. There’s been a shortage of carts and package sets across North America, but supply is starting to catch up. “Every time we’d get a shipment in, the carts just went back out again. It’s been insane the surge in demand.”

Riverside Golf carries quality brands like Clicgear and Rovic, and is known for having Canada’s greatest collection of cart accessories (when Clicgear is able to keep up with demand). Find everything from a seat attachment for your hand cart to an umbrella holder to protect you from the sun and rain, so you can stay comfortable on the course this summer.

Back in the neighbourhood

For over 50 years Riverside Golf has been a hotspot for experienced golfers and novices alike, with a great selection and knowledgable staff. Their new location in South Surrey brings them back to the neighbourhood, just a few blocks from their original location.

Right now the shop has sales in all departments including clothing from brands like Under Armour and J.Lindberg for 20 to 80 per cent off and shoes from New Balance, Sketchers and Under Armour 20 to 50 per cent off. Trade in your old clubs to offset the cost of a new set, or browse the selection of used equipment if you’re just getting into the game. You can also save money by having your favourite club regripped in the store.

“We’ve had customers coming from across Vancouver just to change their driver grip. At one point we were the only ones doing regripping, and I believe we’re still the fastest. We can usually get your club back to you in one to four days,” Poirier says.

The store has a fitting bay to make sure your Ping, Mizuno, Callaway, Cobra and other clubs are the right fit. An off-the-shelf club set will work for a while, but if you want a custom fit based on your height, arm length and swing style, the experts at Riverside Golf can help take your game to the next level.

Visit the store at 1-2970 King George Boulevard or shop online at riversidegolf.ca/shop.
