Premier swings by new golf store

The island's first indoor golf training and entertainment centre has been officially opened.

Michael Dunkley cut the ribbon at Island Kaddy on Hamilton's Reid Street, which offers a full golf store, as well as food, drink and three hi-tech golf simulators programmed with some of the world's top golf courses in its spacious sports lounge.

The Premier, a keen golfer, said: “I expect that Island Kaddy is sure to be popular with our seasoned or novice golf players.

Mr Dunkley, who was accompanied by his wife Pamela, added: “It was also very encouraging to see such an innovative business open its doors, which demonstrates to us that there is strong, entrepreneurial confidence in our community.”

Island Kaddy, which opened on Front Street two years ago, moved into its new and larger premises, the former headquarters of broadcaster VSB, last month.

The store, owned by husband and wife team Anne Marie and Ian Forbes, both top amateur golfers and golf professional Scott Roy, features top brands and electronic gadgets.

The stock includes GolfBuddy and GPS, as well clothing brands and kit for men, women and children from designers like J Linberg, Greg Norman and Nike and electric golf trolleys from Powakaddy.
