(North Stonington, Conn.) - Lake of Isles has been named one of the "100 Best Golf Shops" by Golf World magazine for the fifth year in a row. The annual list recognizes the top 100 golf shops around the country that exemplify retail excellence.
"It is once again an honor to be recognized as one of the top resort golf shops in the country," said Archie Cart, general manager, Lake of Isles. "We strive to provide our members and customers a wide selection of high-end equipment, apparel and accessories complemented by outstanding customer service. Our golf shop staff does an excellent job in making this happen and it is nice to see them receive recognition for their hard work."
The "100 Best Golf Shops" award is divided into four categories: public, private, resort and off course. Lake of Isles was named to the list of the top 25 resort golf shops. More than 4000 golf shops compete annually for this award. The selection process is based on several categories: revenue per square foot, shop layout and display, shop management, promotion calendar and creativity in programs, services and merchandising.
