Club Fitting
Club fitting is the science and art of identifying your personal blue print when it comes to choosing equipment. We custom fit leading brands and can design a club make-up that best suites you. Over the 1-hour session, our CPGA/LPGA professional will build your ideal specifications by observing your unique swing, while using ball flight as the guide. We promise that your experience will be both an educational and enjoyable process from the day of your fitting to the arrival of your new clubs!

$35 | 1-hour fitting

Equipment Tune-Up
Ever wonder... "Why do I grip my club so hard?" or "Why do my 6 and 7 irons seem to go the same distance?"? If so, it's probably time for a diagnostic analysis of your current club specifications and evaluation of any "wear and tear". Equipment Tune-Up includes the diagnostics and recommendations of:

  • Grip check
  • Club specification: lie, loft, length, flex, and set make-up
  • Distance mapping for each club using Launch Monitor technology
$50 | 1-hour mapping session & diagnostics

Mental Game Training
This program is for the intermediate to advanced golfer that is looking to improve their performance of the golf course. Utilizing a neuro-feedback protocol via brain mapping technology, players will be able to get immediate feedback on whether or not they are in "the zone" just prior to making their swing. Through this mental game training program, students will receive an assessment, tracking data, and training time to improve their ability to access an optimal performance state.

$100 | 1 hour, private training
$265 | 3 hour package
$520 | 6 hour package
