Golfers’ paradise at Sports Station

Golf lovers in Dubai rejoice for there is a new retail paradise in the emirate at which to satisfy your every sporting desire.

Sports Station, located on the emirate’s Sheikh Zayed Road, near Noor Bank metro station, opened on June 1st and not only does the 7,000 square-foot superstore offer a one-stop shop for a full range of sporting pursuits, its flagship element is a dedicated ‘Golf Station’ which features one of the few indoor fitting centres in the UAE to use TrackMan technology.

 

 

The use of TrackMan takes the fitting process to another level as the device is able to track the full trajectory of any shot, from six foot pitches to 400 yard drives, pinpointing the landing position with an accuracy of less than one foot at 100 yards, TrackMan also displays the shot’s 3D trajectory together with 26 impact and ball flight parameters in real time (data is delivered within 1 second).

The in store set up allows you to see your ball flight, smash factor, club speed, spin rate, dynamic loft, launch angle, attack angle, carry, club path, ball speed and face angle on the Trackman. In addition to this, Golf Station also has a state of the art putting area, where golfers can use a variety of different brands and models to suit their game.

All custom fittings are delivered by qualified PGA professionals, who are experts in both the fitting and club building process. In the state of the art facility you have the opportunity to customize your clubs by selecting from an impressive range of over 1,000 exotic shaft and head combinations as well as the grip of your choice. The customer will also find the standard shaft options in store

“Custom fitting can have a dramatic and positive effect on any golfer’s game,” said Jordan Gallagher, one of the store’s PGA Professionals. “It is no longer a specialty service provided for only tour professionals. Distance gains and tighter dispersion are the main objectives of the process at Golf Station. In addition, the golfer will have a more in depth knowledge of what they require and this will help mentally as well as physically. These benefits will be seen instantly on Trackman”

Golf Station stocks four of the largest golf brands in the world: Titleist, Callaway, PING and TaylorMade. in addition to a wide range of golf accessories, bags, balls and training devices.

Phil Redpath, PGA Professional, added: “These four manufacturers have 80% of global market share for golf hardware so that is why Golf Station will focus on delivering the best service on these dominant tried and tested brands.”

Once you’ve been fitted for the perfect set of clubs the next stage is making sure you look the part out on course Golf Station’s apparel section certainly has that covered with an extensive variety of brands such as Footjoy, PING collection, Greg Norman and Adidas to cater to all tastes.

The importance of a well fitted pair of shoes is something which can be easily overlooked. If your shoes don’t fit correctly and your feet are moving inside your shoes, you won’t be able to maximize your energy transference into the golf ball. Feet also change over time so even if you’ve been wearing the same size for the past few years, it doesn’t mean they fit correctly and change can not only improve your game but also your foot health and enjoyment on the course. Golf Station has also placed strong focus on its footwear section with a wide range of brands available including Footjoy, the number one shoe in both men’s and ladies’ golf, Adidas and Skechers Golf.

So, if you’ve got a craving for some golf retail therapy, get yourself down to Dubai’s Sports Station where you can be sure your appetite will be fully sated.
