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.

Datrek. A company owned by Dynamic Brands (Bag Boy, Burton, IGOTCHA and more) has been a recognized leader in the golf bag industry since 1979. Long known for their innovation and feature-packed golf bags Datrek has released two new golf bags for 2019.

The first of the two golf bags is called the “Transit”. The most notable features here are the inclusion of a retractable handle and built-in wheels. Think of it as a piece of luggage. Much like walking through a busy airport terminal with your carry-on. You remove the Transit from your car and wheel it to the Pro Shop from the parking lot. No fumbling around.

Secondly, there is the “Lite Rider Pro Cart Bag”. This has been Datrek’s top-selling golf bag 4 years in a row. Even though the bag isn’t “new” the sleek design is. The latest iteration of the Lite Rider Pro Cart Bag is that it offers golfer “complete organization” for their clubs, valuables and more.

Thanks go out to Julie Parham for sharing this press release. Ms. Parham is the Marketing Manager for Dynamic Brands. For more details please see the release as posted below.
