The GolfWorks 2020 Clubmaking Academy

The GolfWorks 2020 Clubmaking Academy

Master your Clubmaking

The GolfWorks proudly presents our 2020 state-of-the-art clubmaking program. Golf enthusiasts and clubmakers alike have traveled from all over the world to take one of our exclusive PGA accredited classes!


Due to the high demand for The Golfworks Schools, and because there are many people that lack the time to commit to a full week school, we have designed a rewarding two-day course on Golf Club Fitting and Assembly. The Fitting section covers golf club design and the affect on golf club performance, along with all the basics of fitting loft, lie, club length, swingweight and total weight. Golf shaft basics are also covered along with procedures on how to choose the right shaft. Golf grip sizing and selection are covered, along with selecting the right set make-up for better scoring. You will learn to conduct a "mini-fitting", which is a shorter, dynamic fitting session that is preferred by many tour professionals.

During the assembly portion of the school, you will learn professional assembly techniques that apply to the hobbyist or volume golf club builder. Included is proper clubhead preparation, steel and graphite golf shaft installation procedures, swingweighting, golf grip installation and much, much more. During the working periods after each skill-based presentation you will assemble a hybrid, wedge, and putter. You will also learn special "Tricks of the Trade" that come from the most experienced training staff in the golf industry. This school package includes 2 days of the best instruction available and lunches for both days. In addition, each student will keep the hybrid, wedge, and putter he or she assembles (a $150 value). You will also take home instructional books and videos and a GolfWorks shop apron (over $125 value). All this included in the $99 price of the school.
