Club Champion – one of the largest premium custom golf club fitting retailers in the world – provides the latest example of Summit’s experience in scaling specialty consumer/retail businesses. Summit invested in Club Champion in 2017, and since then, the company has nearly tripled its store count across the United States, using highly trained fitters and the latest in ball flight measuring technology to deliver a Tour-quality fitting experience.
Today, Club Champion announced its next milestone: the acquisition by Levine Leichtman Capital Partners. Summit will continue to hold an equity stake in the business, and we are thrilled to continue our partnership with the Club Champion team. We look forward to the company’s next phase of growth.
