GOLF DEPOT Golf Depot is the retail trade name of Great Depot, Inc. (GDI). The business commenced in March 1996 as a one-shop retailer of golf equipment. Through the years, it continuously metamorphosed to elevate the range and quality of offerings. GDI started to engage in the exclusive distribution of global brands in 2005. It now operates custom club fitting and club modification services across all its retail outlets. It remains fully focused on the retail and wholesale marketing and sales of golf products and services. MISSION GDI remains committed to its business strategy to invest in high quality brands and products to achieve long-term sustainable returns. The benefits are realized with the dynamic productivity of a disciplined yet creative employee corps – all dedicated to the ideals of efficient customer and supplier satisfaction. Continuing employee development through responsive training and coaching curricula remains an integral part of GDI’s organizational culture. COMMUNITY GDI provides support and assistance to deserving golfers – boys, girls, men, women, and senior golfers. It runs an equipment-on-loan program to junior and amateur golfers through their developmental years. Several of these junior golfers have grown to earn scholarships in schools in the Philippines and across the United States. The company also provides sponsorships to local tour players, several of whom are products of its local junior golf development programs. These now include men and lady golfers who compete in overseas professional golf tournaments. Since 2009, GDI has organized the yearly Philippine qualifier tournament to a major junior golf championship held in the United States. It coordinates closely with parents, swing coaches, the National Golf Association of the Philippines, the Junior Golf Foundation, and the Philippine Golf Tour to assist in the development of golf. GDI’s management and staff run an ongoing food subsidy program to support less-privileged workers in golf practice facilities within major service locations.
