PGA Value Guide Launches National Trade-In Event to Honor 100th PGA Championship
(RALEIGH, N.C.) – The PGA Value Guide – the national standard for golf club values – has launched a national trade-in event in honor of the upcoming 100th PGA Championship wherein golfers receive an extra 20 percent when they trade-in previously played clubs at valueguide.pga.com from July 10 – August 31.
Those who select a PGA credit certificate as payment for their trade, in lieu of cash, will receive additional value that can be used towards equipment purchases at participating PGA-staffed retail locations, including GlobalGolf.com.
“The PGA Value Guide has long been the trusted resource for golfers looking to ensure they receive fair value for their used equipment,” says Doug Smith, PGA Value Guide VP – Business Development. “With this promotion, we are able to help consumers receive additional value for their current clubs traded in toward the purchase of golf equipment best suited for their game.”
Millions of golfers turn to the PGA Value Guide during their search for new and pre-owned golf clubs to ensure they receive the highest overall trade-in value. Users are also able to research current trade-in promotions, pricing on pre-owned equipment, product specifications and reviews, as well as participating retailers staffed by PGA members. PGA Interactive and PGA.com are managed by Turner Sports in partnership with the PGA of America.
Higher introductory price points and longer product lifecycles have resulted in unprecedented trade-in values on golf clubs.
PGA Professionals who use the PGA Value Guide can receive national trade-in promotions, periodic trade-in bonuses and free exposure for their facilities to millions of purchase-minded golfers.
