Karine G., Assistant Manager in Boisbriand, Quebec - Golf Town

I first joined Golf Town as a student working part time as a sales associate during the school year. From day one, I realized the investment the company had made to its employees and was fully committed to offering the highest level of customer service. This amazing culture has remained consistent throughout the years and has motivated me to become a general manager and continue to be part of a team dynamic that thrives on growing the game of golf. I can honestly say that it has been a fun ride and I am proud to be a part of this exceptional organization.

For over 8 years now, I've had the pleasure of working for one of the best retailers in the world in Golf Town. Golf Town emphasizes a customer first approach, focusing on service, quality of selection and a best in class retail environment, both in store and on-line. That same focused approach has always been applied to staff development, whether it's been a focus on product knowledge training or developing a stronger business acumen, Golf Town's dedication to continued retail education has allowed me to grow within the company, from Assistant manager to my current role of Senior Merchant of Clubs. There is simply no other company in the world that could have given me the same experience as Golf Town.
