Distributors are amongst the unsung heroes of the golf industry. Without them, many manufacturers would have issues getting their goods to consumers. This is actually something that isn’t thought about very often by those individuals outside of the industry. Ironically enough, I had this very discussion today at the Niagara Golf Show and Sale in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Take for instance those golf consumers that live outside of the United States of America. Like us in Canada. Distributors of golf products (like Golf Trends Inc.) bring products into the country that otherwise would be very difficult to come by. Distributors supply some retail locations (off-course golf shops) and Pro Shops with products. A case of that is a company like Golf Trends Inc in Canada. This particular distributor carries products from Tour Edge Golf, Lamkin Grips, Golf Pride, and the variety of brands under the Dynamic Brands umbrella (Bag Boy, Datrek, Burton, IGotcha, and Devant Sports Towels).
Recently, Dynamic Brands recognized their Top Distributor for 2018. Kudos goes out to Dynamic Brands for giving such recognition. The honor goes to Jilles Van Oort of The Netherlands. van Oort oversees things in parts of the European continent for Golfer’s World.
For more details, please see the press release below as shared by Michelle Roop. Ms. Roop is the Marketing Manager for Dynamic Brands.
