Shooting between 85 & 100?

Then you’ll get the most benefit from a fitting
Too many golfers think that a fitting is for the very best players. In fact, if you’re shooting between 85 and 100, you’ll see a much bigger difference to your scorecard than anyone else if you play with fitted golf clubs.
Clubs that fit your swing, size, athleticism, and your strength will not only minimise the impact of poor shots; they will make it easier to develop a better swing technique.
Sure, if you’re shooting north of a hundred and missing the target with a wild slice or hook, then there are swing fundamentals to develop as a priority.

Did you buy clubs off the rack?
If you didn’t have a fitting to find the clubs with the right specifications to make it easier to hit better golf shots, then come along and see us. Often it isn’t a matter of buying new clubs. We can change certain aspects of your existing clubs.

Your performance/enjoyment

There’s compelling evidence that improving your putting and short game creates the quickest results on your scorecard. But does that lead to the quickest improvement in enjoyment? You all start each hole with hope and ambition.
It’s not so much that you’ve found the fairway that’s enjoyable (although it is). It’s the fact that you’ve set up an approach shot to the green and it's now all about opportunity and not recovery.

More fairways?
We’re not trying to turn most of you into a Tour Professional. We help you find ways to get more fulfillment out of your experience on the golf course. If you want to find more fairways off the tee, then we’re ready and waiting.
