Good Company Fun relaxed workplace
Merchandise Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 8, 2016
Good place to work. i have learnes a alot about customer service and retail management. This a great company for the retiree or partime student.
To be honest, it is a challenginf job for someone to make a good salary as a full-time salesperson. You will have to hustle and know your product and have good customer communication skills. the commission percentages are not very high 1 to 10 % usually. Manufacturers often pay spiffs for selling their products which helps your paycheck. There is the opportunity to win contests and trips as well through those golf companies.
Pros
free golf lessons, discounts at golf courses, discounts on golf equipment, apparal
Cons
Pay is ok . weekends, holidays, am and pm shifts

Fun place to work. You get to help people improve their golf game on a daily basis. You get to know a lot of different people, and play golf with them.

Productive company that balances work and life.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Altamonte Springs, FLMarch 29, 2015
Golfsmith is a company that has adapted over the years. It has done a good job establishing relationships with its vendors. Golfsmith is attempting to stay relevent in the specialized golf industry. I believe in the markets of larger competitors will be their biggest challenge.

Golfsmith is nice for an entry level job. It is difficult to move up as there are not very many positions. They pay is less than desirable for all that you are expected to do.
