Club Champion opens its 79th store

Club Champion, established in 2010, has grown from a regional three-studio fitting business to a trusted golf club fitting expert with 79 locations throughout the continental United States.

CHICAGO – Custom club fitter Club Champion this month has opened three new fitting studios this month, located in Des Moine, IA; Tacoma, WA; and Livingston, NJ. This brings the brand’s nationwide footprint to 79 stores, with four in the planning stages.

Club Champion fits, sells and builds custom golf clubs using brands such as Callaway, TaylorMade, Titleist, Cobra, Fujikura and Golf Pride. The company says it is only fitter in the country to offer more than 50,000 interchangeable head and shaft combinations on-site, at all locations.

“We are excited to bring the finest club fitting and building to the golfers in these new markets,” said Nick Sherburne, founder of Club Champion. “Our only goal is to find the best combination of components to help customers lower their scores and better enjoy the game.”

The new studios each feature two indoor hitting bays with TrackMan launch monitors for analyzing performance, a SAM PuttLab system to find the perfect putter, and a build shop for repairing and assembling golf clubs by hand.

The roughly 3,000 square foot spaces also include a demo matrix to display the head and shaft options that make up the 50,000-plus hittable combinations.

For a limited time, the new stores will celebrate their grand openings by offering 50 percent off fitting fees with an equipment purchase of $500 or more. Putter fittings are the only exception – they are 50 percent off with the purchase of a new putter.
