Direct Golf UK, the British specialist golf retailer, has continued its expansion with the acquisition of Scottish Golf Center, the leading Scottish retailer with stores in Dundee and Edinburgh. The deal is to be completed in January and will enlarge Direct Golf to 19 stores. Mike Grubb, the owner of Scottish Golf Center, is set to retire, but his daughter, Marilyn Stewart, should continue to supervise both stores. Direct Golf's investment comes as the retailer continues to defy the sluggishness of the British golf market.
