Services and Fees

 

What's it all going to cost? Well, that depends a great deal on which components suit you the best (as determined through our "performance-based" fitting process).

Please understand that there is SOOOO much more to building a good set of golf clubs than just "cut and glue". Special attention must be given to ALL of the details to make 'em the absolute best we can. Each and every club I build gets the full "blueprint" treatment, which includes;

  • Shafts weighed, sorted, profiled, and frequency matched (flex)
  • Desired shaft orientation (spine/FLO)
  • Swingweight or MOI matched
  • Loft angles (where applicable) set to desired amount
  • Lie angles (where applicable) set to desired amount
  • Proper finished length with grip installed

All of these details are important, that's why they're part of every club we build - no exceptions. To build 'em right, it's gonna take a bit of time - on a typical set of clubs, the start-to-finish time works out to an average between 60-90 minutes per club (even more if I'm re-shafting). So if you do the math, when I'm building a typical set with seven irons and three wedges (10 clubs in total), we're looking at somewhere between 10-15 hours to assemble properly. FYI - to do the "cut & glue" hack version of the same 10 clubs, it would take about 90 minutes total. The difference in the finished product however would be like comparing one of those old beat up rusty high-mile Chevettes (remember those???) to a brand new shiny Rolls-Royce. Yes, they are both "cars", but they are nowhere near the same thing now are they. I will not just "cut & glue" a set together - please don't even ask, it's not an option.

Your mass produced OEM clubs are made as quick and cheap as possible (cut & glue) - many times all of the gear is shipped down to Mexico where assembly is done by "Julio" or "Juanita", 'cuz the OEM's discovered cheap labour costs means more profit for the shareholders. I may be wrong here, but I really don't think Julio and Juanita attended any clubmaking schools, nor do they care how well you hit your golf clubs. No offence intended towards Julio and Juanita - they are not the bad guys here, they are just trying to make their living.

I will offer you value-added product and service - much more than you can get "off-the-shelf". I have experience, qualification, certification, tooling & equipment, and use only top-notch components. When it comes to the build, every detail gets the attention it deserves. I build each club as if I were building it for my own use. I'm the only employee, so that means every club created here is done with great care and attention by my hands, one at a time, to my standards (and I'm kinda picky),and to your unique specifications. I stand behind every single club I build. I'm not interested in the quick sale, nor will I take the money and run. I'm interested in your long-term satisfaction with your clubs, how well you hit them, and I want you to get your money's worth. If you encounter a problem with your clubs where something isn't "right" - through effective communication we will determine exactly what isn't "right", and I'll do what I can to make it "right". I'm kinda like the Mike Holmes of golf clubs - "make it right". The bitterness of poor quality lingers on long after the sweetness of low price is gone.

Fitting Fees

  • Irons only fitting
    • $220.00 + taxes
  • Driver only fitting
    • $220.00 + taxes
  • If you've done one of the above, and come back for the other **within 60 days**
    • $145.00 + taxes
  • Putter fitting, or optimize your existing putter
    • $85.00 + taxes
    • Plus any incidentals (grip, shaft, weights, counter-weights, etc.)

NOTE: It is VERY rare to be able to complete an irons fitting and a driver fitting properly on the same day. Usually by the time we're done with the irons, your "swing muscles" are out of gas. Rather than collect "polluted" data, in most cases it is best do do the driver fitting on a separate day.

Fittings are by appointment only, and must be paid in full before the fitting commences.

The above fees are charged to do an in-person custom fitting session - payable before the fitting session begins. This fee helps to pay for all the expensive gear and equipment we use (launch monitor, computers, numerous demo heads, demo shafts, demo grips, swing speed and ball speed meters, high-def video capture equipment and swing analysis software). All of this equipment (several thousand bucks worth) is necessary in order to do a complete and proper fitting. NOTE:  The fitting fees are a separate fee for the fitting only. Fitting fees are not included in club prices, the price for clubs are in addition to the fitting fees. This is how I pay for all of the stuff I need to fit you properly.

 

My last word on all of the above: My clubs will not be the cheapest available on the market (and it's not 'cuz I gouge) - please be aware of that up front. CUSTOM ANYTHING COSTS MONEY. "The bitterness of POOR QUALITY lingers on long after the sweetness of LOW PRICE is gone". I can assure you that the clubs you purchase from Gooder Custom Golf Clubs will be made the best I can possibly make 'em. Your clubs will be made for you and your swing, they will be custom fitted and assembled by hand one at a time with the exact same care, attention, and detail I would put into my own clubs. I have a great passion for the game of golf, clubfitting, and the art of club making - I take great pride in the work I do. I will stand behind every club I build. You have my word on that!

NOTE: Any prices listed are in Canadian funds, and do not include PST or GST (where applicable).
