Since it was acquired by Falconhead in 1999, Golf Warehouse has established strategic relationships with The Golf Channel, PGA Tour and Amazon.com. The company says it has a customer base of more than 1.5 million golfers. Last year, it reported sales surpassing $40 million and operating income of $1.7 million.
