I have a golf equipment store.  There are no categories for this.  Just golf courses or ranges.  The only thing I could put is sporting goods, which isn't quite accurate.  How can I get Golf store or Golf Equipment and supplies added?

This is almost the same question as in here: How to get Google to add a new Business Categorie


and again:


GoogleMyBusiness is about businesses not products a business is selling

If I type in golf, I get:

Golf Cart Dealer
Golf Course
Golf Course Builder
Golf Driving Range

If I type in Bowling it has Bowling Supply Shop. If there were a Golf Supply Shop, that would be fine, but there is nothing. Seems a bit odd.

Dallas, choose the most accurate category. Then make sure that you take advantage of the categories on other Internet Yellow Pages type websites such as Yelp and Yellow Google gathers data from those sources just like they do with your GMB dashboard.
