13 PGA TOUR Shops Honored By Golf World Magazine

Thirteen PGA TOUR Shops, operated by The Paradies Shops, have been listed among Golf World Magazine’s 100 Best Golf Shops for the 15th year in a row; seven of the honorees have been on the list before.

“For nearly 20 years, The Paradies Shops has proudly partnered with the PGA TOUR to offer the traveling public impressive stores with an exciting merchandise selection, always with the Best Price Guarantee,” says Gregg Paradies, president and CEO of The Paradies Shops. “To have 13 PGA TOUR Shops named to this list is truly an outstanding accomplishment, and is a testament to our associates’ dedication to award-winning customer service.”

Winning locations include Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International (CVG); George Bush Intercontinental (IAH); Memphis International (MEM); Palm Springs International (PSP); Sacramento International (SMF); and Lambert-St. Louis International (STL). Repeat winners include Dallas/Fort Worth International (DFW); Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County (DTW); Jacksonville International (JAX); Southwest Florida International (RSW); McCarran International (LAS); Phoenix Sky Harbor International (PHX) and Reno-Tahoe International (RNO).

The 25th annual list is compiled by Golf World editors and contributors and is judged by on- and off-course shops on revenue, shop layout, and success of promotions and initiatives within the past year.

“Year after year, the outstanding professionals at Paradies continue to demonstrate that they are clearly in a class by themselves in the airport retailing channel,” says Tim Hawes, PGA TOUR senior vice president of retail licensing. “Their uncompromising commitment to excellence is once again exhibited by this collection of PGA TOUR Shop awards.  We are proud to be in partnership with such an outstanding organization.”
