Golf is considered a gentleman’s game due to its emphasis on proper etiquette, color-coordinated outfits, and the removal of all brass knuckles and inflatable billy clubs before competition.

The veteran clubbers at Bay Area Custom Golf boost swing skills and course confidence with custom club-fitting services and personalized instruction in a state-of-the-art 1,100-square-foot facility. Both fledging birdies and experienced eagles receive one-on-one attention in a 45-minute lesson, where a video analysis helps the instructor identify any quirks that may affect the swing. Once grip, alignment, posture, and proper plaid pairings have been tweaked, students can send dimpled spheres soaring into the practice net. Although Bay Area Custom Golf does not include a CD copy of the video analysis with the lesson, patrons are free to download the video on their own thumb drives to rewatch at home or during especially boring depositions.
The custom putter fitting helps pair player and club by boiling down elements of a golfer’s stroke and current club dynamics into a recipe for the perfect putter. Staff help identify ideal putter length, style, and weight by analyzing players’ stokes with their current club, sample putters, and others borrowed from Arnold Palmer’s private reserve. After the 30-minute fitting, golfers are provided with a putter recommendation and specifications so they can order a custom club or whittle their own from a croquet mallet.
