Club Fitting
Utilising Foresight software, GC2 launch monitor and head measurement technology. Launch monitor custom fitting enables the following to be tailored to your requirements: Grip Size, Club Lie Angle, Shaft Flex, Shaft Length, Shaft Material, Club Head Size and Distance Gapping. This enables a complete bespoke custom club fitting experience for Ping and Callaway clubs. All club fittings take place in our indoor fitting studio, The Simulator at Woolley Park.

Gapping Session
A gapping session is to find out how far you hit each golf club in your bag, so using the GC2 launch monitor we can see how far each golf club in the set goes and make sure you have even yardage gaps between each club. If the yardage gaps are inconsistent we can alter the lofts on the clubs so the yardage gaps become more even. For the ultimate experience you can upgrade to a premium club fitting in The Simulator at Woolley Park

Jon is an excellent golf coach. He doesn’t over complicate things or overload you with technical jargon. He quickly identifies where problems lie and with use of video and good instruction helps you understand where corrections need to be made, and how to do this with practice drills specific to your needs.

This turned into the best, most insightful golfing instruction I have ever received. I was taken a back just how tardis like The Simulator is when you're actually inside it. Its a lovely, comfortable & relaxed environment! The last 2 rounds since, have been the most enjoyable ball striking rounds I think I've ever had.
