Golf Town's 2012 Gift Guide promises to accommodate any budget

MARKHAM, Ontario, Canada -- The holiday season is upon us, and Golf Town has made it easier for shoppers to find the perfect gift for the golfers on their lists. Offering Canada's largest in-store and online selection of golf gear and unsurpassed pricing, Golf Town's 2012 Gift Guide includes a listing of items under $100, $50 and $25 to accommodate any budget.

"This is actually a really exciting time for Canadian golf enthusiasts," notes Golf Town's Senior V.P. of Canadian Store Operations, Joanne Taylor. "From the Tiger vs. Rory McIlroy rivalry, to the number of Canadians on the PGA Tour, to the Canadian Tour now operating under the PGA Tour umbrella, people in this country are excited about the sport."

"We have a remarkable range of gift options," adds Taylor. "Whether you're looking for an affordable last-minute gift or the same model of clubs that Tour pros are using, Golf Town is the perfect place to find the gift for the golfer on your list. One of the best gift ideas, though, is to give the gift of better golf by purchasing a lesson package, enabling players to work on their games through the winter months and be all the more ready for the 2013 golf season! Our Canadian PGA staff instructors cater to golfers of every age and talent level. And if you're still not sure what to get, let the golfer pick their own present by offering them a Golf Town gift card!"
