Name of establishment
The Golf Shack, Alcantarilha
A complementary venture from owners Gary and Sylvia King to Absolute Zero, their corporate merchandising company. The Golf Shack sells a wide range of golf clothing, equipment and accessories. And a nice little touch - there is even a mini-putting green at the back of the store to practice on.
A small shop that is very well stocked, and where you are encouraged to browse at your leisure. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly, which extends to the atmosphere that is created. And for fans of golfing memorabilia they also stock a small selection of Ryder Cup items.
What to buy?
Apparel and equipment from Titleist, Mizuno, Callaway, Glenmuir and Ashworth. There is a good selection of fashionable golf clothing, as well as shoes, knitwear, golf bags, clubs, putters, golf balls and other accessories. Also in store - the new 2011 colours in the Glenmuir range for women: Hot Pink and Kingfisher Blue.
Why do you like it?
Owners Gary and Sylvia are golfers themselves and understand the sport and the lifestyle inside out. They have a customer service that is second to none with a strong focus on providing ‘a golf shop that offers the best quality products to visitors and residents at a competitive price’.
Not just a shop for the experienced golfer either - beginners are always welcome.
The sizes in the clothing, gloves and shoes are generous - eg women (small to XL), men (small to XXL), shoes (7-11/40-44 for men, 4-7/37-40 for women)
When to go
Visit the store if you want to replace items, or simply to purchase new season stock. Perfect for beginners who don’t have any of the equipment and clothing and want the full kit. Starter packs are available that include a golf bag, full set of Wilson clubs, putter, glove and sleeve of balls. And also the perfect place to go to buy a gift for someone who plays the game regularly.
Having developed a strong relationship with some of the leading golf clubs and courses in the region, as well as businesses and sports teams who share the same ethos, The Golf Shack (and Absolute Zero) are able to supply organisers with giveaways, competition prizes and personalised clothing for golf events and corporate days.
