Golf Headquarters, 7814 Two Notch Road: April 2011   5 comments

Posted at 12:25 am in stores

While I was stuck in traffic Wednesday afternoon on Two Notch at I-77, I noticed that Golf Headquarters, in the old Galaxy World building, is gone, or has been bought out.

The signs for Edwin Watts Golf are still quite temporary looking, and I'm pretty sure I drove that stretch in daylight quite recently, so I'm calling early this month as the changeover date. It continues to amaze me how much commercial activity is centered around the most boring game in the world -- (with apologies to my college roommate..)

UPDATE 7 January 2013: Fix street address from 7813 to 7814. Add pictures.

  1. agree with golf being the most boring game in the world. In my opinion it should go away, along with the NBA

  2. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one that when I hear WIS Sports Reporters report on a golf tournament and go ## under/over par or birdie/eagle, it's a foreign language to me

  3. Wrap your head around this one: The Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta is so big that US Airways is upgrading some of their usual flights into CAE to accommodate people going to said tournament. I am not among them since Golf doesn't excite me at all (read my above comment)...

  4. I used to work in Augusta. "Master's Week" was always a huge hassle. Driving to work from Aiken, even all the I-20 exits would have special Master's signage. (And restaurants in AIken would change their menus).

  5. Like the game or not, golf is big business. Masters Week is the equivalent to the Daytona 500, World Series or the Super Bowl of other sports. Columbia is fortunate that Augusta is too small to accomodate all the spectators with cash that flock to the masters every year. The hotel chains are ecstatic with the rebounding economy. Fans come from all over and rave about the beautiful spring weather compared to where they are from.
