If you get fitted for irons there do they only have the typical 6 or 7 iron to hit or do they have each iron in every brand ?

I did a full bag fitting a couple of weeks ago. You just use a 6i for the iron portion. They start with the most recent head of your current irons (eg 718 AP2 if you're gaming an older AP2) and then narrow down the best shaft. Once you have the shaft figured out, you'll try a bunch of different heads. All 6 iron.

Have my full bag fitting next weekend. To those who have done it, do you just get the specs from CC and then order direct from the manufacturer to avoid their high markup?

Im going for a driver fitting there in a few weeks.
Do they automatically fit you into the newest drivers on the market? I would really something a cycle or two older to save some $

I was there fairly recently and have a slightly different opinion.  For what I got for $175 (full bag fitting), it was totally worth it.  I was there for 5 hours.  I was sore for a few days after.  They didn’t try to up sell me and really listened to me and what I wanted.  They said my wedges were fine but adjusted them to 50/55/60 for me.  I got new shafts (Project X LZ 5.5) in my 6 through PW, but kept my Ping G30 heads (nothing else they had that I wanted to hit gave enough of a difference to warrant a switch.  The Srixon Z565 irons were close and felt like butter they were so smooth.  My hybrids were fine (although I may end up to needing the 5 hybrid anymore and I was getting really good numbers on the 6 iron with the new shafts.  Driver and 3 wood needed new shafts (Oban Devotion 6 04 and Paderson KG930 something for the 3 wood).  They suggested that I didn’t need to change the heads but just needed new shafts.  I went with Epic Driver and 3 Wood with new shafts anyway.  Putters (both) that I have were fine and only might benefit slightly from 1 degree less loft but were overall fine.

I never felt rushed, pressured, or up sold.  It was a really great experience.  Was it expensive, yes but it was mostly MAP pricing on the heads and then the shafts were slightly up charged to cover their installation costs, puring etc. Made me feel like a tour pro getting that kind of attention on my game.

I’ve got a few rounds on the new setup and couldn’t be happier.  Still adjusting a bit (its freakin cold out there) but already noticed that it feels like my driver has another gear now and flies past where it used to in several spots.  I wasn’t expecting that (expected better dispersion, which I’m seeing).  3 wood is a game changer for me.  Much longer, easier to hit and get up in the air.  Iron shafts are much more stable and consistent.  Need to learn new gapping and settle in to the new setup fully.  Can’t wait for spring.

FWIW, I’m about an 8 handicap golfer, was briefly down to a 6 in July but Winter is pushing up my index (as it should in VA as I prep for spring).

Interesting.. I had the same thing about not needing new heads but saying I needed new shafts. I did a full bag fitting and the cost to reshaft my clubs was $2,000 dollars for shafts and install. Not even grips!! It was a cool experience for sure but I could get nearly an entire set of new clubs if I go with a local fitter for that price. I am an 18 handicap with a 90 mile per hour driver swing speed so it’s not like I am swinging at tour speeds. They got my buddy for  $2,000 for a set of JPX900 forged, shafts, and grips. Same shaft and grip setup was available at no up charge by Mizuno. Guess it pays to be an informed consumer.

Good thing is that I think pretty much anyone who is looking for a real opinion will disregard comments from someone who responds in hashtags.

Everyone says the same things. Yes, their business model for club building probably doesn't fit a GolfWRX tinkering member's budget. It does however offer a very good fitting option and most areas are hard pressed to find a shop with the club and shaft options that they have. All I can say is that for $175 for this sale for a full bag fitting, it is a no brainer if you are in need of finding out your idea set.

I got a full bag done there last winter it was awesome. I did however have someone else build the clubs, continental golf to be exact.  I forget the total at this point but I think CC wanted like 5500 for everything. I think I found everything myself and had it built for around 1800ish

I went and loved it. Got the whole bag fitting, never was pressured to buy or anything. Their prices are HIGH, I took my specs and built my bag for $1681.00 instead of $5016.00. But But But....I play with a guy who has a TON of money and he had them build his bag. He said that when they say they guarantee their stuff, they guarantee it!!!! He bought a Taylormade iron set but did not get the results he was looking for. He went back in and they re-fitted him, put him in a different shaft and head, a set of Callaways and he loves them. No extra cost at all. He broke the shaft on his 5wood, he had another one in by the next round at no cost.

My fitter told me up front before we even went to the hitting bay that a full bag would start around $5k, he was right! He also told me that you are not paying big bucks for the clubs, you are paying for the Guarantee.

I think it all depends on who you get as a fitter/salesman.


Sounds like OspreyCI had a not so nice fitter, or just a really bad experience!!!

#sarcasm
I actually spoke to a younger guy in person who started saying “hashtag” before he spoke and in the middle of speaking. If you tried to visualize this guy only based on his use of that word, you’d probably be pretty close to spot on.

I turned and walked away mid sentence.

I’ve been considering using them just for fitting and then buy and build myself. The prices aren’t outrageous if you stop at the fittings, it sounds like.

How in-depth is the fitting? Do they get down to swingweights, shaft tipping & length? Has anyone ever been to the Cleveland location and have any reviews of the location?

I'm headed to DC location soon to take adv of the  $175.  Never been fit, so really looking forward to it.  Sure it will be a blast, and at ~$50/hr how can you go wrong?

Same - heading there in two weeks.  Plan to provide a full review

I did the $175 full bag fitting back in November. I had a great experience. I was there about 4.5 hours and went back for another 45 minutes a few days later to confirm specs and hit the setup I had chosen again. No pressure or no upsell and very knowledgeable fitters.


They couldn’t find a better fit for me in driver, fairway wood, hybrid, wedges or putter.  Specs and performance for all of them were close to optimal, although they did tweak loft and lie on my putter.

We did find a significant performance upgrade for my irons though. They recommended Callaway Apex combo with C-Taper 120 S shafts, +0.5”, 2.5* up. I thought their price for the clubs was high, mostly due to the fact that they charge for a new set of shafts regardless of what comes in the clubs. I get that they may be able to build to tighter tolerances than the OEM, but when the shafts can be ordered as a no cost option from the OEM, it’s tiugh to pull the trigger at that price point.


I wound up buying a set of Like New 4i - AW clubs from Callaway Pre-owned (with the wrong shafts) for $600 during their sale, and had Club Champion build them to the specs from my fitting.

As I mentioned, I was fit into C-Taper 120 S.  I looked at Golf Works before I asked CC to build them, and I think the shafts were around $38 each.  The Club Champion cost for the shafts including assembly to my spec was $65 per club.  So basically a charge of $27 per club to cut the shafts, assemble the clubs, and get the swing weight perfect for each club.  I specced Golf Pride New Decade grips and they charged $13 each including installation, so maybe a $3 charge per club to install vs what I could buy them for and install myself.

Based on that, it cost me around $250 (plus the retail cost of the components) to have Club Champion do the build.  For that, I got back a set of clubs with length, loft, lie and swing weight perfectly in line with my specs, and the quality of the work is excellent (perfect ferrules, grip and label alignment etc).  That $250 also gets me their Perfect Fit guarantee  that says if the clubs don't work for me they'll make it right.  I also get free loft and lie adjustments for the life of the clubs.  To me, that's pretty good value.  I could have saved maybe $90 by having another club builder do the work, but I would have had none of the after sales stuff I'm getting from Club Champion.

All in, including tax, the clubs wound up costing me $1,300.  Coincidentally, that's almost exactly what they would have cost had I custom ordered to my specs a new set from Callaway.    I was very happy with the process, overall cost and value for money.

Got fitted last year and been slowly acquiring my shafts and irons through GolfWRX or eBay. Through the year I noticed a lot of other folks being fitted to the same brand shaft as mine (Accra) and the fact that whenever I see them on eBay or forums, its because they were originally from Club Champion. Sometime seems fishy with that.

Doesn't seem fishy to me that second hand Accra shafts are coming from people who were fitted at Club Champion. Pretty sure Accra can only be purchased through fitters such as CC.

What is surprising is that these people are selling the shafts on eBay instead of going back and getting the problem fixed w/ CC's guarantee.

So my fitting is on the 12th.  I kind of told them that I was mostly interested in getting the right specs and knowing what I should be playing (shafts and heads) - but not necessarily buying all new stuff.

The guy I talked to seemed a bit put off - but maybe I was projecting.  My plan is to go through the fitting - learn what I need, then acquire what I need on BST or eBay.  I am getting into DIY club building - so I actually want to do the work myself.

I hope they are cool with that.

If I end up needing a lie adjustment (which I think I do) I would like to probably get that done there (anyone know what the charge for that?)

I am going to the DC location - anyone recommend someone to work with?

What he’s saying is most people that go to Club Champion are being fit into Accra shafts. Which I agree. Every person I ever see fit by them... it’s Accra or Oban Devotion.
