LEADERSHIP

Lee Pavelka – President

Chris Schram – General Manager of Golf

TGW is pioneer in the industry — beginning as one of the world’s first online golf retailers and growing into one of the largest golf retailers that markets exclusively via the internet.

Founded in 1998, TGW – then The Golf Warehouse — started out as a small family-run operation with only four full-time employees. In over two decades since, TGW has grown to over 250 team members who oversee 230,000+ feet of warehouse space devoted to more than 30,000 golf products.

During this growth, The Golf Warehouse changed its name to TGW in what the company says better reflects its transition from internet golf pioneer to industry leader. With more than 20 years of experience, TGW has been well positioned able to capitalize on the growth of the ecommerce sector.

Over the  years, TGW changed its business model from closeout deals to primarily selling full-priced, in-line products. This change opened the door to representing many of the game’s top brands such as Cobra, FootJoy, Nike, TaylorMade, PING, Titleist, Wilson, adidas, Bridgestone Golf, Callaway, Cleveland, and more.

TGW also offers customer-friendly services like no-risk 90-day guarantee and free ship on custom clubs, price matching and early access to new club launches.

TGW currently has a combined inventory of nearly 50,000 items – from golf clubs, apparel and shoes, to balls, bags, electronics, carts, and accessories (ball markers, gloves, sunglasses, tees, and towels, among others). In doing so, it has earned its reputation as a go-to online source for the game’s best products.
