One of our favorite golf stores is closing its doors for good. They have been serving the area for over 30 years and they have decided to shut down both stores here and the one store in Florida. Believe it or not, Lumpy’s is closing.
What we liked about Lumpy’s wasn’t the abundance of equipment like they have at the PGA Superstore. The equipment they had were adequate for the average golfer but what we liked at Lumpy’s was the expertise and customer service that came with every club that you pick up. They were always ready to serve you and watch you hit several shots with the club before asking you whether you like to hit more balls or try another club. They would never try to upsell you or pressure you in any way to buy the club on the spot.
Lumpy’s would hold several demo days throughout the season and bring in all the manufacturers for you to try out their new clubs. We attended last year’s event and were given a Lumpy’s golf towel, just for attending.
If you go to Lumpy’s now, you can pick up some good deals on whatever is left. They said they decided to close on April 1st and the first clubs to go were the ladies’ box sets. We were lucky enough to pickup the last Callaway Solaire 8-pc set for half price. Originally sold for $750, Lumpy’s price was $599 and store closing price was $300. It came with a golf bag, driver, 30-wood, 5-hybrid, 7-iron, PW, SW and an Odyssey putter.
