Golfbidder Extends PGA of GB&I Partnership2 min read


Posted on: 17th Apr 2012

golfbidderThriving online club exchange retailer Golfbidder has signed an agreement to be part of the PGA Partner Programme for another three years.

The company, which started life as Mashie Niblicks in a south west London shop in the late 90s and offers golfers guaranteed prices for used clubs, joined the programme nearly a decade ago and has become a European-wide success.

More than 700 UK-based PGA pros use the facility annually, each one knowing that they can accept used clubs in part exchange for new ones as Golfbidder will take the former off their hands.

Furthermore, the cash they receive from Golfbidder for the clubs can be used by the client to go towards the new ones, coaching or other products.

An integral factor in the firm’s success has been its rigorous counterfeit screening processes that includes a team of PGA professionals employed to check the authenticity of all traded clubs.

Golfbidder’s commitment to customer service has also seen it exploit all the latest digital media technology with filmed reviews accompanying many of the leading brands for sale.

It also has a designated YouTube channel populated with videos which has attracted more than 700,000 views while its reputation is illustrated by more than 11,000 ‘likes’ on Facebook.

Company founder, and managing director Liam Robb, remains proud to be part of the partner programme and believes their association with the PGA adds a stamp of approval to Golfbidder.

“Customers who come to Golfbidder for the first time might potentially be a bit nervous about buying second hand clubs,” he said. “So the fact we have a respected name like the PGA associated with us is a big benefit.

“We also deal with many PGA professionals who recognise the opportunity that Golfbidder presents in terms of allowing ordinary golfers to offload used or unwanted equipment for a guaranteed price that can either be reinvested in new equipment or perhaps into golf lessons or elsewhere in the pro shop.”

PGA chief executive Sandy Jones, commented: “We are delighted that Golfbidder has agreed a three year extension. It offers a great service to our members, enabling them to trade second-hand clubs with the knowledge they will receive a guaranteed price.”
