Golf Club Fitting at Lacoma

Lacoma has the three elements required to successfully fit clubs:  1) A PGA Professional experienced in club fitting, 2) A full outdoor driving range, and 3) A professional-grade launch monitor.  An experienced club fitter (who is also an experienced instructor) has seen thousands of golf swings and can make adjustments based on seeing the full flight of the ball which only a full driving range can provide.  Just as nothing can replace the information an experienced club fitter gets from seeing the flight of the ball, nothing can replace the "feel" you get when you see your ball in flight. 

At Lacoma Golf, club fitting is done by Will Clopton, a PGA professional with 20 years of teaching and fitting experience and, as you can see from his background, Will is terrific player as well.  Fittings are conducted on our outdoor, full size driving range and we utilize a FlightScope launch monitor to provide hard data on your particular swing characteristics - it allows Will to fine tune the fitting.  For more information on FlightScope launch monitors see below.

At Lacoma, we offer two different ways to be custom fit:

1) Participate in one of our Fitting Days Events (see the sidebar to the left for the days/times available). You can make an appointment or come as a walk-in to any of these events.  Fittings will be done on a first-come-first-served basis with priority given to those with appointments.

2) Book a private appointment with Will.  Note that there will be a $50 charge for private appointments, but this fee will be applied to your shop credit account and will be useable for any Lacoma Golf shop purchase.

Lacoma Golf offers clubs from a variety of leading manufacturers, including Callaway Golf, Taylormade, Titleist, Ping, Cleveland Golf, Srixon, and TourEdge.  In addition to custom fit clubs, we provide a variety of "off-the-rack" options in full sets or as individual clubs.  If you're a beginner (or buying for a beginner), Lacoma offers a number of inexpensive options to get you into the game.  Lacoma offers very inexpensive youth golf club sets as well.

The Lacoma Golf Shop - It's Not Just About the Clubs

While our clubhouse might be fire damaged and our golf shop temporary, at Lacoma Golf we are fully stocked with all the equipment and apparel you need.  Stop by and browse our selection of golf apparel and footwear from leading brands like Foot Joy, Adidas, Ecco, Callaway Golf, Travis Mathew, Titleist, Lucky Clover, and more.  Our golf ball selection includes, Titleist, Callaway Golf, Bridgestone, Srixon to name a few.  We even offer two different kinds of rugged, difficult-to-break golf tees!

FlightScope Technology

FlightScope launch monitors use sophistocated Dopplar Radar to track your ball in-flight.  It provides a wealth of information about your swing and ball flight and allows an expert club fitter to fine tune the clubs to your game.  Check out the table below to appreciate the magnitude of the information provided by a FlightScope launch monitor.
