AGM Platinum Award Recipients To Be Honored

The Association of Golf Merchandisers (AGM) is pleased to announce the presentation of their Platinum Awards on Wednesday, January 22 from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on the PGA Forum Stage at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The AGM Platinum Awards recognizes premier golf retail shops from the private, public, resort and off-course sectors.

The presentation of the awards will highlight the Top 10 most creative initiatives and will honor the “best of the best” golf shops and ties. Also, included in the program will be the presentation of the Cashman Award for Visual Excellence given by Ardie Cashman and Kevin Cashman of Bearpath Golf and CC in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. This award, named in their honor, recognizes an outstanding visual display.

“The Platinum Awards continues the tradition of Golf World’s 100 Best Golf Shops and the AGM’s Front Nine Awards by combining the two programs,” said Desane Blaney, AGM Executive Director. “We received a number of outstanding entries again this year and the competition was very close.”

To be considered for an AGM Platinum Award, golf shops submitted an entry to the AGM which was judged by an impartial panel and rated on creative ideas, revenue-generating initiatives, promotions and visual displays.
