Golfers are among the sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts that DICK’S caters to as its top omnichannel retailer, with over 850 DICK’S Sporting Goods, Golf Galaxy, Field & Stream, and Public Lands locations nationwide in addition to a sizable online presence.

In addition, DICK’S is the owner and operator of GameChanger, a youth sports mobile app that allows scheduling, messaging, live scoring, and video streaming. It also owns and operates DICK’S House of Sport and Golf Galaxy Performance Center.
Dick Stack, then eighteen, opened his first store in 1948 using $300 of his grandmother’s life savings. This led to the creation of DICK’S Sporting Goods. DICK’S Sporting Goods expanded its product line in the early years of the company, having previously only sold fishing gear. Today, the company boasts hundreds of locations across the country and is renowned for carrying a wide range of premium, name-brand sporting goods apparel, footwear, and equipment.

After acquiring Golf Galaxy in 2007, DICK’S Sporting Goods became the biggest specialty golf retailer in the US, solidifying its place in the golf industry.
The latter, which debuted as a retail location in 1997, sells golf balls, bags, technology, accessories, clothing, shoes, and clubs under major brands. Additionally offered are full-service club repair, a pre-owned club program, a club trade-in program, lessons from PGA/LPGA professionals, and custom club fitting services. The retailer also runs the Golf Galaxy Performance Center, a novel idea that provides an immersive experience for players of all skill levels.
Golf-specific departments at DICK’S stores stock golf clubs, balls, bags, training aids, and the newest styles in golf apparel and footwear. In addition, the business provides customers with a round-the-clock storefront by selling its goods through an eCommerce platform (and app) that is rich in content and integrated with its network of stores.

Additionally, DICK’S Sporting Goods’ extensive selection of outdoor gear, which includes golf offerings, has allowed it to weather many of the challenges posed by COVID-19. The industry’s leadership believes that these sectors will drive growth even though economic uncertainty remains a threat.
People are fleeing.” As DICK’S Sporting Goods CEO Lauren Hobart put it in the spring of 2022,They are walking, they are playing golf.” “The categories that each of us has been talking about are seeing a surge in the pandemic; we think they all have room to grow in the long run.”

In addition, DICK’S established the DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation, a tax-exempt, non-profit organization whose goal is to encourage and facilitate youth sports participation while supporting the company’s charitable and philanthropic endeavors. It has also supported the DICK’S Sporting Goods Open, a PGA TOUR Champions event, for more than a decade.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

The closing of other sporting goods stores and golf specialty shops that carried golf merchandise, most notably Sports Authority and Golfsmith, has helped DICK’S Sporting Goods.

Following its consolidation, DICK’S will continue to have the chance to increase its market share as the retail industry stabilizes. Golf and sportswear have consistently been among the company’s most successful markets. With the reopening of 36 former Golfsmith stores as Golf Galaxy locations in May 2017, DICK’S celebrated the return of stability to the brand it owns and manages.
