Many students at Cumberland Valley have picked up golfing as a hobby when school is out or during their free time, so when a new golf store opens they should know if the store is worth going to, or if they should stick with their regular golf store. So I walked into Golf Galaxy on the Carlise Pike to not only see the prices, equipment, and convenience, but also to check out the customer service.

When walking into Golf Galaxy I was amazed to see the size and order of everything. You could tell the store was brand new and neat.The customers were all being taken care of, and all of the equipment was neatly organized 

Golf is a relatively expensive sport, so the prices could be difficult for an average high school student to afford without some help from parents. Golf shirts were in the range from $85-$130, which can be too much for students.

The golf clubs, as expected, were expensive, but some are on the more affordable side depending on the club. The prices ranged from five hundrend dollars to the thousands. Bags, shoes, and tees were also affordable, meeting the normal ranges expected to pay for those items.

The interactive equipment in the store is top-of-the-line with an indoor putting green and a performance center with a virtual golf green that has the latest technology that can track movements of you, the ball, and your swing. That data can be used to customize clubs and even point players into the right pair of shoes.

The customer service was great, the employees were nice, and they were always helping people in the store.

One empoloyee, Maria, said,“It’s awesome, there is a lot of technology, and lots of people who love golf that come in."

Golf Galaxy is a great store for people middle ages and up who love golf, and it is great for high school students if you can afford it. The prices are high but the equipment is top notch and easy to use.
