Custom Fitting Overview and Services

HODSON GOLF’S PRIVATE FITTING SESSIONS

We custom fit and build golf clubs to each customer’s individual specifications, to enhance and maximize each player’s performance and ability. Having a set built to the specific performance needs and swing characteristics of the golfer will allow the golfer the best opportunity to improve scoring and, more importantly,  increase his/her enjoyment and love of the game.

Hodson Golf provides fittings for all facets of your game: driver, iron, hybrid/fairway, wedge, putter, and ball fittings. Due to the complexities of each type of fitting, coupled with the individuality of each customer, fitting times vary for everyone. We currently charge $150 per fitting, with a portion going towards the purchase price of new equipment (portion applied depends on purchase amount and the overall length/time of the initial fitting). All  fittings include a complimentary follow-up fitting once you have had a chance to break-in the new clubs. The follow-up fitting allows us to further fine tune your new equipment and/or make any improvements, if needed. When you contact us for a fitting,  please let us know what type of fitting you are interested in (along with budget) so that we can allot enough time, and not have to rush things.

TOUR LEVEL REPAIR SERVICES

Hodson Golf also utilizes two authentic tour trailers, which allows us to bring our extensive PGA Tour repair expertise and experience to our most valuable customers. Hodson Golf is proud to be the region’s largest boutique shaft, grip, and head provider and have, at our disposal, many offerings typically found only on the PGA Tour Trailers. When it comes to professional/custom repairs, we can pretty much do it all (and we do it right the first time, unlike the hourly guys at the local big box).

Who We Are Not

We are NOT the large corporate “big box” golf retailing chains that are only interested in selling as many mass-produced clubs as they can. We are a small, locally owned, family run business with a core belief and focus on maximizing each individual customer’s player quality and satisfaction! In terms of equipment, our philosophy of ALWAYS CUSTOM, NEVER STANDARD is a stark contrast to that of our big box competitors.

 


2015shaftlineupWe are proud to offer the largest selection of premium driver shafts currently available. Our driver fitting system allows us to utilize all of our shafts in most driver heads currently available for even greater selection. 

Due to our extensive offerings of both head and shaft combinations, If your desired fitting involves a driver please fill out the questionnaire in the contact form  to help us serve you more efficiently. Our current shaft offerings can be categorized as the following:
(1) Base and/or Stock shaft offerings per Manufacturer 
(2) Moderate shaft offerings (typically add $50-$150 to base driver range (1) above 
(3) Premium shaft offerings including most high-end Japanese & prototypes (typically add $150-$1,000 to base driver range (1) above ($250-$300 is about average).
Knowing beforehand your anticipated driver budget will help us to better narrow down the best shaft offerings for your individual swing profile within your budget range. We currently have over 100 individual driver shafts in our fitting system ranging from $0 upcharge to $1,000 upcharge.  As always, a portion (if not all) of the launch monitor fitting fee will be included in the price of your new driver or reshaft. Also, knowing your budget and/or shaft interest, will help us to allocate enough time to your fitting as premium shaft fittings typically take more time for calibration and/or analysis.

HODSON GOLF’S PGA TOUR TRAILER

Straight from the PGA Tour this official Tour Trailer saw nearly 6 years of action on Tour. There maybe other operations that claim to have a “Tour Trailer” but this one is about as real as it get’s with tour only equipment and accessories throughout. How cool is it to get professionally fit for custom equipment and then go into the rig and watch your clubs be built. This rig is also available for rent for any sized event (golf or otherwise).

HODSON GOLF’S MOBILE FITTING CART

We are currently building this latest addition to our fleet which will debut early next year. This custom made vehicle will be able to perform all fitting aspects directly on the driving range or on the course. Imagine having a fully stocked vehicle with all variations of manufacturers heads, shafts, grips which can be assembled (and bent if needed) directly where/when you are doing the fitting. Why be restrained to the driving range when you can hop on this vehicle and take the fitting to the course!
