"We will work together adding the all-important elements of power and consistency to your game, while maintaining the individualism and art of your swing." M. Howes
One of the most exciting developments in golf has been the availability of custom-fitted golf clubs, and the technology available to support it. We provide custom fitting with launch monitor technology at the Rob Noel Golf Academy.
In over 99% of sales, Custom Fit golf clubs cost no more than a set off the shelf but are built by the manufacturer to specifications that will allow you to play better golf more often. We offer Henry-Griffitts, Callaway, Titleist, Srixon, Cleveland, Mizuno, and PING.
We constantly update the demo clubs and the technology to bring you the best in custom fitting.
A Fitting is an investment that delivers the most improvement from any equipment purchase.
The price of a fitting depends on whether we are fitting you for a single club, a set of irons, putter, wedges, or a full set. Prices start from just $75 for a single club assessment and swing evaluation - to $175 for a 2-hour Dynamic Bag Fitting.
Dynamic Iron Fitting $100
General inspection of each iron in your bag with a verbal evaluation based on length, loft, lie angle (Dynamic-using lie board), shaft flex/weight, grips, corrosion/dents/cracks.
Full Set Dynamic Club Fitting: $175 (120 minutes)
General inspection of each club in your bag with a verbal evaluation based on length, loft, lie angle (Dynamic-using lie board), shaft flex/weight, grips, corrosion/dents/cracks.
Junior Golf Clubs: $100 (60 minutes)
We excel in fitting junior golfers with the proper equipment for success!
Edel Putter Fitting: $75 (45 minutes)
An Edel custom fitted putter allows you to set up and align your eyes, shoulders, arms, hands, and clubhead perfectly. The Edel Putter Fitting system takes the guesswork out of finding the putter that fits you.
Wedge Fitting: $100 (60 minutes)
The right set make-up will allow you to hit all the distances from your "scoring range" much easier and will give you the tools to get it close or make greenside recoveries. Choose the desired head shape/look, loft combinations, bounce angle, shaft configuration, and grip.
Driver, Fairway Metals and Hybrids: $100 (60 minutes)
We will usually add +15 yards to a golfer's tee shots but have been known to add +30 yards. Include solutions in your bag for longer fairway shots with fairway metals and/or hybrids.
Get properly fit and enjoy YOUR game more
We have the ability to very accurately find you the perfect match of club design, swing weight, shaft, shaft flex and length, lofts, and lie angles, and even to measure the impact of different grip sizes.
