Scratch Golf Clubs Announces Partnership With Boyne Resorts; Grand Opening Of Custom Fitting Centers

March 12, 2014
BERKLEY, Mich., March 11, 2014 — Together with Boyne Resorts, Scratch Golf Clubs is proud to announce the grand opening celebration of the first of two full-service custom fitting centers in Michigan. Located at 27723 Woodward Avenue in Berkley, Michigan, The Fitting Center is a state-of-the-art custom golf club fitting facility, dedicated to analyzing golfers’ swings and providing them with the best custom fit equipment possible. The second location is scheduled to open May 1, 2014, adjacent to the Donald Ross Pro Shop at the Boyne Highlands Resort in Harbor Springs, Michigan.

“We could not be more excited to enter this new venture with our friends at Boyne,” said Ari Techner, Founder and CEO of Scratch Golf Clubs.

While featuring the signature products of Scratch Golf forged irons, handmade custom wedges, and handmade putters by James Ingles, The Fitting Centers also offer full custom fittings for any club in the bag, from driver to putter, from all of the top manufacturers including TaylorMade, Callaway, Nike, Titlest, and Ping.

“A common misconception that many people have about custom fit golf clubs is that it is a service for experienced and high-level players,” said Techner. “The truth is that custom fitting is a service that benefits golfers of all skill levels, and in many cases, has a greater impact on golfers with a higher handicap. Golf equipment is a significant investment for many golfers. If a golfer is in the market for new clubs, they should get the equipment that is best fit for their play style.”

The grand opening celebration of The Fitting Center in Berkley will be held Saturday and Sunday, March 15-16, from 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM.

Scratch Golf Clubs is a golf equipment manufacturer who relocated its business headquarters and most of its production operations to Southeast Michigan in August 2013. Best known for its handmade custom wedges, Scratch Golf equipment is currently played by numerous professionals and top amateurs, with several players recording wins and dozens of Top-10 finishes.
