Steve and Todd McCollum are providing the personalized touch golfers need, whether they be season players of the game or just beginning playing the game. me several options and specifics about each brand. With club in hand, I departed a satisfied customer and a happy customer. Edmond Golf makes you feel right at home. I will be back.” – Gregory Hutson “Really enjoy this store. They have fixed old clubs and ordered new ones for me. Always top quality and the best place around. They treat me and my grandchildren wonderfully. A joy to do business with.” – Brian Ennis Although small compared to some golf supply stores, Edmond Golf is the “little shop that could,” starting out small and changing locations twice during its near-30 years in operation. “We started out on Main Street, and then we moved in 1997 to across the street from where we are now,” Steve said. “We eventually outgrew that place, so we moved to our current location at 301 N. Broadway, where we’ve been ever since. We love the downtown area.” Although Edmond Golf does not have a website or Facebook page, McCollom said downtown foot traffic and word of mouth about their business has more than kept them busy. “We’re both so glad to be here — this is a business, but honestly, we just love to help people, and since we’re as knowledgeable as we are about golf, our store helps us to do just that,” he said. “A lot of times, if we don’t have the starter sets, we’ll recommend (to customers) trying it out and then seeing if they like it or not — if they really want to play (golf), before coming back to us to ask about golfing supplies. “Like a lot of sports, golf is one of those things that people may think they want to play, invest in the equipment they need and then find out, it’s not for them. We don’t want people to do that. We would rather not sell someone golfing equipment until they know they’re going to be into it. For us, it’s not as much about the sales as it is about helping people find what’s right for them.” Edmond Golf is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
