Our Story

Our History

As a division of 1st in Video-Music World, Discount Golf World is a golf retail store located in Quincy, Illinois. 1st in Video-Music World started as a brick and mortar stereo store in 1975. Over nearly four decades, 1st in Video-Music World has grown and evolved into a parent company that currently operates three divisions, each with their own local retail store and online eCommerce site. These companies are: Discount Golf World, Quincy Discount Travel, and the Internet Retail Top 500 member, 4ElectronicWarehouse.

Discount Golf World started in January of 2005 after founder Dennis Boudreau decided to try his hand in the Golf industry after 37 years in the electronics business and 21 years in the travel business. A month after the concept was born, Discount Golf World had its grand opening with a completely stocked golf store and a fully-functional website, DiscountGolfWorld.com.

All of our day-to-day operations are done in-house. From our online presence to our customer call center, to our order processing and distribution, every step is managed and executed internally. We pride ourselves on unique content creation, knowledgeable staff and close relationships with both our customers and our vendors.


We Have Everything You Need

Discount Golf World has succeeded in teaming up with every major golf brand in the industry, including : Adams, Adidas, Ashworth, Bridgestone Golf, Callaway, Cleveland, Club Glove, Cobra, Ecco, FootJoy, Mizuno, Mizzen+Main, New Balance, Nike, Oakley, Odyssey, Puma, Scotty Cameron, Srixon, Sun Mountain, TaylorMade, Titleist, Tour Edge and many more. Here in Quincy, we have several experts available to assist customers with all of their golf needs. We believe in providing our customers with exceptional support so they can choose the right equipment to improve both their game and overall enjoyment of the sport. For this reason, we’re fortunate to have a golf professional on staff able to provide lessons and fittings in-house using our Full Swing golf simulator or on the course.


What Drives Us

Occasionally our staff is asked how and why all of our divisions manage to fit together so well. The answer is simple: Passion. The founding company and the growth of each division have all stemmed from a true passion for each industry. It is often easier to describe each origin as a mere hobby; however, what may have once been a hobby has now transitioned into a business where the work we do is much more than an ordinary job. It is with this philosophy that we have continued to grow both professionally and personally. As a composition of several generations and a close-knit group of friends, we believe in cross-department development not only for the improvement of each division independently, but also for the success of the team.

There is a common phrase used within our organization to represent this passion. “When work becomes work, it is time to do something else.” By no means does this imply our jobs do not require hard work, but rather reiterates the importance of personal goals and behavior. We know the joy for the job our employees have is a direct correlation to their own success and the success of this business. Therefore, the culture here at Discount Golf World was designed to support one another on both a professional and a personal level.


Community Service

We pride ourselves on our service to the customer, but we also take great pride in service to our community. The role of community service and a strong faith help identify who we are as a company. Put those ideals together with an immense love of golf and you have an understanding of Discount Golf World, where there is nothing in golf we don’t do.
