GolfClubs4Cash - going from strength to strength in 2020

Thanks to the support of Murray Winton and Martin Lambert, co-owners of golf trade in specialists GolfClubs4Cash, pro shops and retailers across the country have found a way to keep their business moving forward in 2020 despite challenging times.

Murray, co-founder and director, explains the reason for this boom: “When golf was closed, pros with bricks and mortar shops across the UK were faced with uncertainty and unsold inventory. Our trade-in events give our PGA pro customers a real boost to their business because the funds for any trade-ins are paid immediately to the pro to credit the customer’s account.”

The Edinburgh based business has been fortunate enough to keep its 50+ staff members busy over the whole of 2020, with demand for its pre-owned clubs and equipment at an all-time high.  Martin, co-founder and director, explains, “With more people taking up the sport we have had an influx of orders for our pre-owned sets.   “We’ve also been quite aware of the fact that people have had time to clear their lofts and garages of unwanted, old clubs.  We will accept any products as long as they are still fit for purpose, which means we have seen some weird and wonderful golf clubs here in the past few months!” 

The company, whose turnover has grown year on year, winning the Business High Growth award, has a robust expansion plan in place for 2021 supported with significant investment.  “We already support many clubs in the UK and Ireland and want to reach out to other businesses who will benefit from our trade-in events.  In a recent trip to London we ran 5 days of events, which were a huge success across 14 locations.  The members see this as added value service, and nothing can take away from the pros’ satisfaction when they get money from us before we leave,” concludes Martin. 

With the trade-in event schedule filling up fast for 2021, the team are looking to welcome any new businesses that wish to host a day.
