Georgia-based PGA Tour Superstore plans to open its first Kansas City-area store in Overland Park.
It sells golf, tennis and pickleball apparel, family accessories and footwear, along with equipment and technology such as GPS units, rangefinders, simulators, pitch monitors and swing analyzers. No opening date has been announced.
The 29,000-square-foot store will be in The Fountains at 6621 W. 119th St. It will have bays for hitting Practice & Play – currently only available at its new Milwaukee store. It will also have a large putting green.
The Overland Park store will have the chain’s new Practice & Play hitting bays like the one in the new Milwaukee store.
It has 58 stores in 22 states, but none yet in Kansas or Missouri.
According to the company, there were 3.3 million new golfers in 2022, the third consecutive year that the sport has attracted 3 million new golfers.
They said the number of female golfers is also on the rise: 25% of players are women and 40% of new players are women. The fastest growing segment of golf is the millennial segment.
Whole Foods Market currently operates in the Overland Park space but will move to the southwest corner of 119th Street and Metcalf Avenue.
In August 2021, Legacy Development said it had signed Whole Foods for that new location, in the Overland Crossing development.
At the time, a Whole Foods Market spokeswoman said, “I can confirm that a store in Overland Park, KS is under development. At this time, I have no further information to share.” Officials could not be reached for comment on Thursday or Friday morning.
Legacy Development said Whole Foods is slated to open in Overland Crossing in October.
