Does anyone know what kind of margins small golf stores make on golf equipment?

Not as much as big golf stores because the manufacturers sell to them for less. I think it should be illegal to do such. After all I can't charge an insurance company more for an exam on a patient than I can a private pay individual even though my costs are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay less on private pay individuals.
Yeah I know....bulk discount. Yeah the bulk of that is the small businesses' business!!

Owning a shop I can say not much.......With all equipment I hope to make 30 points.  Generally speaking a 400 driver costs me anywhere from $280 to $320 so........I'm going to say I'm a mid level store and we have to get creative in buying to get the best prices from the vendors.  That being said I didn't get in the golf business to get rich I'm in it because I love golf and have a passion for equipment.  Making a $100 per driver might sound like a lot but if you think about it and all the expenses incurred in running a business its not much.

Generally speaking, margin on golf hardgoods is 20 - 25% for a medium size chain. Big retailers are able to expect 30% or more.

20% tops for a small shop. I'd rather sell you a 14 piece Dunlop beginner set than a set of AP2 irons based on margins!
