In 1968, Billy “Coach” Hobbs fulfilled a long-time dream when he opened Hobbs Sporting Good in downtown Dublin, Ga. An avid golfer, gifted athlete, and all-around sports enthusiast, Mr. Hobbs took pride in making quality sporting goods readily available to Dubliners.
In the early 1970s, he decided to move his sporting goods store into a shopping mall — a move that was uncommon at the time. In the early 1990s, Hobbs relocated his shop again, to a stand-alone building at 2310 Highway 80. With the business growing and prospering, he wanted the capability to expand if necessary. And that’s exactly what he did — three times. Today, Hobbs Sporting Good is a 10,000-square-foot sportsman’s paradise.
