The Haggin Oaks Golf Super Shop is thrilled to announce that it has been named by Golf Digest Magazine as one of the Top 100 Clubfitters in America in the latest February 2011 issue of the magazine. The magazine surveyed nearly 600 accounts nationwide and narrowed it down to the very best- Haggin Oaks was one of only three Northern California accounts selected.
From Golf Digest:
Matching the right equipment specs to a golfer’s ability and physical characteristics is hardly new. Bobby Jones’ personal clubmaker, J. Victor East, once sorted through 5,000 pieces of hickory to find the perfect duplicate for the shaft in Jones’ driver. Today the search for the proper set of clubs is no less important, especially if you want to find an expert as exacting as Mr. East. It’s probably why one of the most common questions our equipment editors get is, “Where should I go to get fit for clubs?”
Regardless of which fitter you choose, we’re confident you’ll find the expertise to make club buying a thoughtful process. And that’s the first step to real improvement.
Our process for determining America’s 100 Best Clubfitters involved three criteria: (1) The location must be open to the public, (2) There must be access to clubs made by top manufacturers, (3) The fitter must be nominated by one of the following: one of our 900-plus raters of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses, golf association executives, top teachers or other industry sources. We also asked facilities to complete a survey detailing their resources, expertise and methodology. A list of more than 500 leading fitters was then evaluated by our judges before they decided on the 100 Best.
