Golfbidder extends its partnership with The PGA to 2027

Golfbidder, the authority and market-leading specialist in buying and selling used golf clubs, and The PGA have cemented their long-term relationship by extending the partnership through 2027, when Golfbidder will celebrate its 30th anniversary.

After starting life as a small shop in South-West London in 1997, Golfbidder is now fully global with operations in the UK, France, Canada and USA. On the renewal of the long-standing partnership, Pierre-Luc Laparé, CEO of Golfbidder said: “Having The PGA as a partner underpins our position as the authority when it comes to re-commerce in the golf industry. Working alongside them for the next three years, as we approach our 30th anniversary, will allow us to offer the next generation of PGA Professionals another simple and sustainable revenue stream.”

Duncan Rougvie, Head of Commercial at The PGA, said: “Golfbidder is a long-standing partner and we are thrilled to collaborate with a brand that champions sustainability within the golf industry. In 2023, Golfbidder Pro users generated over £3.2 million, offering our PGA Members an excellent opportunity to diversify their income streams. This partnership aligns perfectly with our PGA Play offering, as it encourages PGA Members to have their club members trade in clubs, thereby creating a robust supply of quality equipment for beginner golfers.”

Golfbidder remains synonymous with buying and selling used golf clubs across the UK and Europe. Over the years, Golfbidder has helped PGA Professionals by purchasing from them hundreds of thousands of golf clubs, with the total Golfbidder has put back into the golf industry now in the tens of millions of pounds.

More than 1,000 PGA Professionals across the continent use Golfbidder Pro, the exclusive B2B pricing tool, that guarantees a price on used clubs, manages inventory, offers free collection, and electronic payment.

On what using Golfbidder Pro gives PGA Professionals, Thomas Tanner, Business Development Manager at Golfbidder said: “Golfers not only want to save money, but they also are becoming more aware of the sustainability of products. Using Golfbidder Pro gives the PGA Professional a solution for both. They can promote the cost of change, rather than the price of new, as well as give reassurance the club will continue its golfing journey with a new owner.”

“Golfbidder strives to take all the risk out of taking customer trade-ins and make the selling process as easy and straightforward as possible – Golfbidder Pro is just the latest step. It was built to fit around the busy PGA Pro who is rarely sat at a desk, or rarely available during regular working hours. Prices are available 24/7 and the platform is fully responsive. Getting a quote take seconds.”

PGA Professionals and Golfbidder Pro users shared over £3million last year. To find out more about how using Golfbidder can help your business in 2024, please don’t hesitate to reach out at
