When you love golf, you want to do everything you can to stay on top of your game. You spend time practicing your swing and dedicate plenty of time to the game. But have you ever thought of investing in custom golf clubs?


It’s a common misconception that custom golf club fittings are just for pro golfers. Find out if a custom golf club fitting is right for you in this post from Burl Oaks Golf Club. To get your custom fitting or sign up for a golf club membership, give us a call today!

Getting the Right Clubs

The first thing to understand about golf clubs is that most people are using the wrong ones. Every player is different, so why would a golf club that works for someone with a completely different height, build, and strength than you be a good fit for your bag?


All of these factors come into play when determining which golf club is right for an individual player at any given moment:


●        Arm length

●        Height

●        Posture

●        Player strength

●        Grip size

●        Club head speed

●        Angle of attack

Benefits of a Custom Fitting

One of the biggest reasons casual players may be hesitant to invest in a custom golf club fitting is that they may not feel ready to spend a lot of money on clubs. And worse, new players will often start off with a bag of loaner clubs or a starter set while they decide if they’re really into the game. Unfortunately, if you’re playing with an ill-fitting set of golf clubs, you’re far less likely to truly enjoy the game. Perhaps the clubs will be too short or too long. Or maybe they’re just not the right weight for your individual needs.


On the other hand, you’ll be blown away at the difference after investing in custom clubs. Clubs that fit properly can transform a player’s appreciation of the game. Once you’ve got properly fitted clubs, you’re ready to start working on your swing with the tools you need to do it the right way.

What to Expect at Your Golf Club Fitting

Don’t worry about pushy salespeople when you go in for your custom fitting. We’re far more interested in helping you get the right clubs for your needs so you’ll keep playing for years down the road. Golf shop experts would much rather have a long-term customer than try to force anyone into overspending on a less-than-perfect club.


If you’ve already got a bag you’re working with, be sure to bring it to the shop and share what works well for you and what doesn’t. If any of your current clubs are a good fit, we’ll let you know.  Next, we’ll talk to you about your needs before taking a look at your swing to look for patterns. After only a few swings, we’ll be able to identify your individual patterns and tendencies and make a good recommendation.
