The Fancourt Golf Academy also includes a state of the art TaylorMade Fitment Centre for custom club fitting and tuition. Custom fitting in the broadest sense is building a club designed to match your individual swing characteristics so that you hit the ball longer and straighter with better control. Previously available only to PGA Tour professionals, the two-hour custom fitting experience is conducted in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, and includes driver, fairway woods, hybrids, irons, wedges, and putter. It is beneficial to men, women, and junior golfers of all ages and skill levels.

The fitting process involves placing the special reflectors on your body in order capture a number of swings with the driver, iron and putter to gain a true representation of your swing dynamics and impact position. These swings are analyzed by a custom fit specialist and PGA qualified professional, which takes approximately 1 hour. Once this has been completed and understood, you will be escorted out on to our grass range to validate the club recommendations for the remainder of the two-hour session.
