  • Fitting &
Basic Fitting and Assembly - 2 Day - $150.00 plus HST  

This two day school is an introduction to Golf Club Fitting and Assembly. It is designed for the beginner and briefly covers all topics involved with fitting and assembly. Each student will go through the fitting process and then build three clubs to their evaluation results. The procedures for assembling golf clubs will include everything from a hobbyist building clubs at home to a large volume repair shop. This course discusses theory while being very hands on.

Due to the high demand for our schools here in Canada and because many people are unable to commit to a four day school we have created this two day course. During the two days each student will go through a “mini-fitting”, which is a shorter, dynamic fitting session preferred by many professionals and people in the industry. This process will cover club design and the affect on golf club performance, along with all the basics of fitting loft, lie, club length, flex, swingweight and total weight. Students will be taught how to select the right shafts and grips and the correct set make-up for better scoring. Not only will the students learn this valuable information about their own swing and clubs, they will learn how to fit other golfers and help them select the correct components for their game.

During the assembly portion of the school, you will learn the professional assembly techniques that apply to everyone from the hobbyist to a high volume repair shop. You will learn the techniques for assembling woods, irons, hybrids, wedges and putters with steel or graphite shafts. You will use the information obtained from the fitting process to build a graphite shafted driver, steel shafted 6 iron and a putter. We will also share the “tricks of the trade” that come with our experience in the golf industry. Included in the tuition cost are the three clubs you take with you, instruction books and videos.

2015 Schedule


The GolfWorks has been conducting professional golf club repair, fitting and assembly schools since 1982. We have hosted thousands of students from all over the world. Unlike other companies who teach club repair and actually repair very few clubs, we repair thousands of clubs yearly. Among the people who have placed faith in us to provide them with the knowledge of golf club repair, fitting and assembly currently work for companies like Callaway, Titleist, Nike, True Temper, UST, Golf Galaxy, Dick's Sporting Goods and more.

Maltby Clubmaking Academy workshopOur premier technical experts provide you with the most comprehensive clubmaking instruction offered in the industry today. Our classes qualify for the PGA and LPGA Continuing Education Programs. The academys instruction manuals are written by Ralph Maltby, who is the leading authority on club design, fitting, and repair. Hundreds of golf professionals from the PGA of America have also attended our schools. Why? Because the teaching manuals used in our schools are also used by the PGA of America in their seminars and workshops. In fact, many golf professionals choose to supplement their PGA-based education by visiting the source of golf club repair, fitting and assembly.
