Riverside wins Best Golf Shop in the province

Award announced at BC PGA Award celebrations in Richmond

Golfers across the Valley will be proud to know that The Riverside Golf Shop won the Best Golf Shop in BC award at the BCPGA Awards. The PGA of BC announced the recipients of its annual honours for 2017 during its awards celebration on Wednesday, October 11th at the River Rock Casino Resort in Vancouver.

Riverside beat out Predator Ridge of Vernon, Nicklaus North of Whistler, and Bear Mountain of Victoria.

“It feels great, it’s something we’ve been nominated for before, so it’s a great achievement,” said Riverside Golf Shop Manager Lea Ann Anderson.

The shop goes above and beyond in merchandising and customer service to make sure people get a one of a kind experience and the repeat customers that frequent the shop are essential to its success.

“We want them to be surprised with the selection and we want them to come back,” said Ms. Anderson.

According to Ms. Anderson, to be acknowledged is an honour and it comes from years of hard work.

“We continue to provide the best selection and it’s really the staff and our team that make it happen,” she said of her dedicated and talented crew.

The win proves that Riverside is a heavy hitter amongst its heavy weight contenders, beating out competitors in the Lower Mainland, which is a huge asset for the East Kootenays according to executive VP for Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, Peter Smith.

“We’re a smaller area and it’s great that this region can produce retail that can compete with the rest of B.C.,” he said.
