THE FITTING PROCESS
Finding out your needs
Do you want more distance? More accuracy? Less curvature? A different trajectory? Let our PGA pros know.
Finding the perfect shaft
The most important part of a club. Finding the correct shaft will optimise trajectory and distance, whilst giving the shots the tightest dispersion possible.
Finding the perfect clubhead
Looks are just as important as performance. We can suggest the best club loft and setting for you, however ultimately when it comes to looks, it’s your choice!
Finding the perfect length & lie
Extremely important to ensure the best chance for a centred strike and minimal curvature on your ball flight.
Finding the perfect grip
The correct grip size and compound will help straighten your shots and provide you with the ultimate feel and comfort to suit your swing type.
Ordering your perfect clubs
Upon payment, we can order your clubs to be built from scratch by the manufacturer; custom fitted by us, made for you. Delivery is normally 7-10 days but we will inform you of lead times at the point of order.
CUSTOM FIT FAQ’S
Where does the fitting take place?
All our custom fitting takes place in our indoor swing studio on our GC2 Golf Simulator. This gives the vital information on where the ball is actually going.
Do we use computer technology?
Yes most definitely. We track the golf ball using GC2 technology allowing our expert fitters to monitor every potential benefit to your game.
Who does the fitting?
All our custom fitting is carried out by our qualified staff who have attended and passed all the custom fitting courses from each of the manufactures.
Will custom fitted clubs cost me more?
No is the simple answer, we only charge the same for custom fit clubs as we would charge for a set of standard clubs. However, we tend to find when golfers are custom fit they actually buy less clubs, as we never sell them clubs they would not be able to use.
Do I have to pay for a custom fitting?
We do charge non-members £35 for a custom fitting, however if you purchase the clubs you will get £15 back.
Do we custom fit left handed golfers?
Yes we have left handed clubs in our custom fit options; however we would recommend you telephone the shop for availability if there is a specific club you are looking to try.
Do we custom fit lady golfers?
Yes of course we fit Ladies, and with our shop offering one of the best if not the best collection of Ladies clothing in the area we are extremely keen to look after all our lady golfers. We also have full trial sets for Ladies to take out and try the Clubs on the course.
Will players of all abilities benefit?
Yes, golfers of all abilities will benefit from the custom fitting process. The novice golfer will discover before purchasing which club combination works best for them. The advanced golfer will be able to fine-tune their desired feel and ball flight with precision.
We understand that when players are changing their equipment they are doing so to see improvements in distance, consistency or both. Each fitting is carried out by a fully Qualified PGA Professional and advice will be given where necessary to make the fitting as beneficial to the customer as possible. We too want to see the improvements to your game with the new equipment.
Do we make the clubs up ourselves?
No absolutely not. Once we have custom fitted you, we take your details and send them to the manufacturer. The manufacturer then make up the set of clubs specifically for you. Delivery time is approximately 7-10 days.
What happens if I can’t get on with the Clubs recommended?
This rarely happens, as when you have fitting using our simulator the benefits are obvious to you and the Clubs tend to pick you!
However, after a few weeks of playing we invite you back for a FREE Gap test so that we can measure how far you are hitting your new Clubs as often there will be a gain in yardage. We can also discuss any issues you may have and deal with them appropriately for you. Our intention is that you will be 100% happy with your purchase.
