The new store is something alright! The indoor driving range is huge...for being indoors. My suggestion would be to demo your favorite clubs at their store, then mosey on over across town to "Pleasanton Golf and Tennis", adjacent to Raleys. They will match any price from the Corporate stores, and provide a keen personal touch impossible to get at those "big box stores".

PG&T opened recently, without any of the fanfare or hype. Support the mom-and-pop operation, because prices will not be an issue. I love their personal touch! And so will you!

why this retailer didn't hold out for Domus to exit. Seems like the perfect trendy store to backfill that location.

*hurl*

And it's Texas based company to boot. Perhaps all the SBC/AT&T executives left in the Bay Area (and there aren't many...) will be shopping here to ensure their Lone Star State Loyalty is firmly cemented.
