Golf pro Nick Griffin decided to open the shop because he had a hard time finding golf supplies that are not made in China. So Pebble and Pine specializes in made-in-the-U.S.A. items, including shirts from Austin-based Criquet, pants from New York City-based Grown & Sewn, balls from Titleist, Scotty Cameron putters and toiletries from Baxter of California.
“There are a lot of good golf courses down here, but no golf stores,” Griffin says.
Griffin and his wife, Jennifer, live near Preston and Royal, but they chose to open their shop in Bishop Arts because it’s a place they like to spend their leisure time, they say.
The store will have a putting green and TVs, and Griffin says he hopes Pebble and Pine becomes a social space where golf fans can watch tournaments on TV and hang out. The shop will have free beer for customers every day. It is expected to open Friday, in the space formerly occupied by Onli, next door to Oak Cliff Bicycle Co.
