Press Release
: : 29 May, 2004

GolfTEC, the Denver, CO based provider of high-tech golf instruction, is celebrating a major milestone with the opening of the industry's first golf instruction franchise. The Irvine, CA location, owned and operated by Timothy Rooney, opened just days before two additional GolfTEC franchisees opened for business in Scottsdale, AZ., and Austin, TX. A forth franchise will open in Troy, MI., early next month.

The opening of GolfTEC's inaugural franchise reflects they company's most recent move to secure it's position as the market leader in golf instruction. Established in 1995, GolfTEC was launched with a mission to help people play better golf. Today, they have given over a quarter of a million golf lessons and project explosive growth as they enter into additional U.S markets with corporately owned and franchised locations.

"We've given a lot of lessons and helped thousands of golfers with their game," said GolfTEC President and Co-founder, Joe Assell. "The franchise initiative, however, is an especially exciting endeavor. It allows us to get to market and help frustrated golfers faster, which is important in an industry that is struggling with retention."

GolfTEC is beginning the 2004 golf season with a bang. The company recently hired 26 teaching professionals to staff seven new Learning Centers. Three corporately owned learning centers will open in existing GolfTEC markets in Chicago, Dallas, and Denver which brings the total number of corporate stores to 17. GolfTEC's four franchise locations will make the company's total footprint 21 stores in ten markets.

GolfTEC plans to sell franchises into all major U.S markets. The company has signed franchise development agreements in Austin, Detroit, Orange Country, Phoenix and San Antonio with plans to open 20 franchise locations in the next 18 months.
