Golf Fitting Studio
Shadow Ridge Golf Club is also home to Golf Fitting Studios. Visit our club fitting team at the Fitting Studio at Marriott's Shadow Ridge. You will receive personalized attention from initial interview through product delivery from our Golf Digest Top 100 Club Fitters. No matter what your skill level, custom fitting can have a dramatic effect on your game.
The foundation of our club fitting methodology is that both fitter and customer must observe actual ball flight. WE DO NOT FIT INTO NETS. We use cutting edge technology (including a Trackman launch monitor as used on the PGA Tour) together with visual analysis of ball flight to provide the most thorough fitting experience available. We measure parameters such as launch angle, clubhead and ball speed, and spin rate so that we can provide you with the club specifications that best fit your game, including set-make up; loft and lie; length, shaft type, weight and flex; and grip type and size.
We fit clubs from all major manufacturers and during your fitting session you will have the opportunity to try clubs from comprehensive fitting systems provided by our sponsoring manufacturers. If you choose to purchase new golf clubs from us, your clubs will be custom built to your specifications at prices comparable to the major online stores. To schedule your fitting, please contact The Fitting Studio at (760) 674-2737.
