Golfsmith International, national golf retailer, will open its first South Carolina store in Columbia’s Harbison commercial center on Friday.
The 23,500 square-foot store features a variety of brands in golf gear.
The new store is part of Golfsmith's growth strategy in the Carolinas. Adding to its current Raleigh location, the company recently expanded with stores in Charlotte and Greensboro -- with another store opening in Myrtle Beach later this spring.
The Columbia store, located at 252 Harbison Boulevard, has four golf simulators and an indoor putting green. The location also features GolfTEC, a state-of-the-art in-store improvement center, with PGA teaching professionals and coaches to help golfers improve their games.
The Harbison store will have a grand opening Friday through Sunday, with the store opening at 8 a.m. on Friday. The weekend events will include free gifts, registration for a shopping spree, a hole-in-one challenge and a group lesson clinic on Saturday.
Golfsmith International is based in Austin, Texas.
