Modern Golf Vancouver is Expanding!

Modern Golf is excited to announce the expansion of its Vancouver location in Spring 2015! Due to
an encouraging first year in the West Coast, Modern Golf is moving to Bridgeport Road in Richmond
to provide an even better MG experience for its BC customers.  Furthermore, Modern Golf is
delighted
to announce that Andy Johnson has joined the team and will be located at the Vancouver store as of
February 2015.
 
Andy is a native of Australia and now resides in Vancouver, British Columbia. He played full time
on the Australasian and Canadian Tours from 2004 through 2011, having also competed in various
Nationwide and European Tour events. Establishing himself as a player, he was very fortunate to
come through world-­‐class programs like the Australian Institute of Sport and Provincial training
programs. These programs provide the training that has produced Australia's greatest tour players.
 
Since his playing days, Andy spent 3 years as a Custom Fitting Technician for TaylorMade Golf.  
Andy's custom fitting experience was conducted at the TaylorMade Tuned Performance Centre in
Vancouver. With Andy's proficiency as both a playing professional and custom club fitter, Andy will
be a great fit for Modern Golf and an asset to its current team.     
 
The new location for Modern Golf Vancouver will be opening its doors spring 2015.  The official
opening date will be finalized in a future press release.  The new facility will be 4,000 square
feet, featuring 3 Trackman fitting bays, a Quintic Putter Studio, and a repair shop.  Like the
flagship store, Modern Golf Vancouver will have the largest demo shaft matrix in North America.

 
Players of all abilities, situated on the west coast of Canada, will be offered the same high
quality brand agnostic approach to club-­‐fitting Modern Golf currently offers its customers at
their Headquarters in Toronto. All fittings will be conducted using Trackman, the industry leader
in measuring ball flight and club delivery.  Every customer fit will be provided with a blueprint
of their current clubs, Trackman data, prescription and quote for new clubs.   All clubs built will
be SST PUREd, frequency matched and built to exact specifications set by the fitter.  

 
Modern Golf Vancouver will provide: driver, woods, hybrids, irons, putter, and full bag fittings.  
They will also provide club repairs and refinishing.   Whether  you are looking for a new set of
custom fit clubs or would like your current clubs retro-­‐fitted, Modern Golf can help YOU play
better golf.
 
You can find out more information on Modern Golf from the website www.MODERNGOLF.ca.

So my TaylorMade fitter and Modern fitter will unite 2 minutes from my home under one roof!

Lucky guy!

 

I'm thinking about a golf trip late summer for my wife and I to B.C. Might have to check it out.

 

Are you still planning a trip to Oregon in the spring?

I want that short game area in my house. That was such a sick set up. If the taxi driver from "how I met your mother" hadn't been getting fit, some "more aggressive" shots would have been taken.

Has anyone been fitted here recently? I realized that although i live in the States, this is probably the closest high quality fitter to me, about a 2 hour drive.

For sure Richmond, BC is closer. Pronghorn is about 6 hours from my house. Richmond is only 2 hours, assuming I don't get stuck in line at the border crossing. 

Plus, my family normally goes to Richmond/Vancouver once every three or four months (during normal non-covid times), primarily for the Dim Sum lol.
