Club Fitting Cost and Results


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I will apologize in advance for asking this as I am sure it has been asked previously. 

 

My current set was bought off the rack, I went in hit a few balls and bought them. I was just trying to get back in the game and wanted something cheap with decent performance. Now that I'm a complete golf addict again and willing to invest in a set that fit me and my swing. I feel like there will not be any definite answers on this however, I want to know the following: 

  1. How much did it cost you to get fitted? 
  2. Where did you go to get fitted? 
  3. Are you happy with the results? 

I appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing  your answers

Fitting Recap: Overall I am happy with how everything turned out. I went in for a full bag fitting however, I only replaced my 3 wood and irons.  We started off by hitting my 6 iron, Callawa

I have read lots of conflicting things about puring and it applies to both graphite and steel.  Same shaft probably is a $30 upgrade at the OEM; CC will add on  a premium for things like puring, ensur

1. Free

2. Club Champion - they normally charge but we're running a promotion

3. Yes, very happy with the results. Their 90 day fit guarantee is great. My new irons weren't giving me the same result on the course as they were in hitting bay. Went back and he helped make adjustments and it's going better.

1. $135 for irons, $80 for wedges, $135 for woods

2. local boutique ship - Pete’s Golf. 

3. i couldn’t be happier. it would be a bargain at twice the price. the guy who fit me was happy to work with the PGA pro on staff at the shop who is giving me swing lessons to make sure my clubs are perfect for my swing 

i don’t have an easy swing to fit. my 7i SS is 105-110. my driver is 135. i wouldn’t really trust some dude at Dick’s or the PGA tour superstore to get me dialed in

$250 for a full bag but got all of $70 back when we bought clubs recommended. Used an independent shop (not franchise or corporate store) extremely happy with the result and my clubs were reasonably priced - no upsell.

i think the most important question to ask is “why?”

a good club fitter will want to educate you on why he’s choosing certain components for you to build the perfect clubs. 

i’d have a very hard time spending a considerable amount of money if the fitter couldn’t explain past “well look, the ball went straight”

I just talked with a guy at my club that did a fitting a CC. They were running a promo that gave a free whole bag fitting if the player bought something. He bought Irons and wedges. They fit him into a steel shaft that added $67 per club. No credit for the shafts that came in the clubs, and he was not given the shafts that came in the clubs. He felt fairly satisfied, but he felt he should, at least, been given the original shafts that he paid for.

You would need more info to understand the price.  There are steel shafts that exceed that price.  Club Champion has add on costs like shaft puring at $20 a shaft.

If you have a budget number in mind tell your fitter.  There are $ club heads & shafts..... and then there are $$$$$ clubheads and shafts!!!  If you have a $$ budget he can look for the best fit in $$ heads and (especially) $$ shafts.

The guy told me that the same shaft was a $30 upgrade from the club company. I've read conflicting things about puring, and I really thought it applied more to graphite shafts than steel. I'm just a bit skeptical of some of these high dollar fitting places. They are in business to make money, and I just feel like they are going to push the most expensive options, I might be dead wrong, but that's my opinion. I did a fitting with a top 100 Mizuno fitter, and it cost $75, and that was applied to the purchase price of my irons.

I have read lots of conflicting things about puring and it applies to both graphite and steel.  Same shaft probably is a $30 upgrade at the OEM; CC will add on  a premium for things like puring, ensuring shaft weight and SW are correct, flex is the same for each shaft, etc.     You have a right to be skeptical;  some people think it is worth it while others don't.    Regarding high dollar shafts,  that is all based on how much you communicate to them about your budget.

Hey all, 

 

I wanted to give everyone an update. This weekend 10/17, I will be going to Club Champion in Atlanta for my club fitting. After doing several days of research I feel like they have the best technology with the most potential to help me continue to improve my game. I'm going to get fit for a full bag. I will provide details once completed. 

 

I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve!
