The advantage of Custom Fit Golf Clubs

We can have a love-hate relationship with our golf clubs at the best of times. It is easy to blame a bad shot on them, and it is easy to place all the praise on your new $700 purchase when you hit a good shot. But is this the best way to get the most out of your game?

Getting clubs that are custom fit to you is so much more than just getting the most distance out of your driver (although that is a big perk). It is also making sure that we stay within the "Goldilocks" zones when looking at launch angle and spin rate. (Remember that storybook take with the too cold, too hot, and just right porridge?)

Why is this so important?

Practice with a purpose and improve your game

For most golfers, going to the driving range is the only way they can improve their game. While this is true and time well spent, we can make our time practicing more productive if we have a clear understanding of what our outcomes are after each golf shot. By using the poles at the end of the range as our guide, we can start to get a clear picture of whether or not we would have hit the fairway or green, or missed and hit the ball into the rough or trees. As a guide, here are the distances right or left of your target and this is where you would be if your golf ball traveled one pole right or left.

100 yard shot - 5.5 yards right or left

150 yard shot - 8.5 yards right or left

200 yard shot - 11 yards right or left

250 yards - 14 yards right or left

Short Game Practice Areas

Short Game Practice Areas


Our Putting and Chipping areas are now open at both Burnaby Mountain and Riverway Golf Courses.
We encourage all patrons to come on down and practice their short games. You will notice a yellow rope dividing the area into sections. We do ask people to follow some simple rules.


• We have create stations at both the practice areas and we ask that only 1 person be inside each station at a time.
• You must stay inside your station and not hit shots from anywhere else.
• As there are limited spots we may enforce time limits. So please be mindful of your time while using the practice areas.


Thank you for your patronage and we will see you at the Golf Course soon!

How to stop hitting the ball FAT

SETUP:
The most common reaction when hitting the ball fat is to move the ball back in your stance. Short term gain or what some would consider a Band-Aid. We recommend you try moving the ball forward and this may give you the answer you are looking for.

What does it mean to hit the ball Fat?
Hitting the ball fat is when you hit the ground before the ball and as a result you have grass and dirt get between the club and the ball. The result to your performance is you lose distance.

Know Your Yardages to Improve Your Game

If we asked you what your 150-yard club is, would you be able to give us a confident answer? How about if we asked you to perform that shot now on the golf course. Would you still be as confident in that answer?

If you do not know your yardages when you play, you'll face two issues:

  1.  You can hit a perfect shot and come up short or long from your target.
  2.  You can feel unsure of your shot during your swing, which results in poor execution. You need to trust what you are doing to perform at your best.
