State of golf sales

Getting questions daily regarding how the golf industry doing, especially regarding sales reps.

What’s going on out there?

Are reps still looking to pick-up new lines?

Are they still working or have they left the industry?

Are new workers entering the industry?

These are all great questions and we’ve noticed a few trends that may shed some light on the current state of salespeople in the golf industry.

As most of us are aware, golf participation is at an all-time high since Covid entered the picture over 2 years back.

Play has increased on-course, off-course, day or night, at home on tv, phone, computer or backyard, or within an entertainment venue.

As play increased, so has consumer spending.

People are buying lots of golf goods like apparel, equipment, accessories and services.

Established sales reps are doing very well, some better than ever!

Those who were not as established or selling as much have had a harder time dealing with the increased costs in doing business i.e. travel, gas, hotel, food etc….

Some reps have left the business altogether while others entered, wanting to finally work in an industry they enjoy.

These are just a few of our observations which, overall, look pretty darn good for the industry as a whole.

If your company is looking for sales assistance, now is a great time to recruit!

You don’t know jack about Thanksgiving

…at least we don’t at GolfSurfin.com.

Did you know there are over 200 websites discussing what really occurred during the very first official Thanksgiving celebration?

In fact, there’s a debate on just about every aspect of the first Thanksgiving meal including WHEN and WHERE it actually took place and WHO attended.

In reality, much of the information we were taught in school about Thanksgiving wasn’t necessarily true.

Details were manipulated and given a more positive “spin”.

Here are just a few interesting myths:

THE MENU

No turkey, cranberries, or pumpkin pie on the first Thanksgiving table. Instead the menu choices probably included passenger pigeon, venison, lobster, clams, mussels and eel.

No bread or butter or even sugar was available at that time!

ATTENDEES 

18 adult woman boarded the Mayflower. Yet by the time the first Thanksgiving was celebrated in the Autumn of 1621, of the 50 colonists who attended, only 4 were women!

Unfortunately for the men and women who arrived on the Mayflower, many did not survive that difficult first year in the U.S..

Regarding the Native American guests, no-one really knows for sure whether they were invited OR were already in the area busy with their own harvests and crashed the party.

UTENSILS 

No forks! Only knives and spoons were used at the first Thanksgiving table.

The origin of this fact is gray. Some sources claim colonists had forks yet traded them with native Indians for supplies and information. Others claim forks had not yet been invented. Instead, settlers ate with spoons, knives and their fingers!

When it comes to Thanksgiving facts or any claims made by anyone for that matter, you really don’t know what you’re getting until you do your research.
