FAQ

Have you got a question, the answer might be here...

What are your opening hours?

We have lots of Customer Feedback, proof that we can help you be a better golfer if you play with clubs built in our WorkShop. Read Google Reviews and more Facebook Reviews
What custom fit should I book?
This depends on what clubs you want to get custom fitted for and how long you want to book the Fitter, the Trackman and access to all the demo clubs in the ClubRoom. The 1 Hour Custom Fit costs €100 and you will be fitted for Driver, Irons, Woods, Wedges. (just to say this session actually lasts 75 minutes, ie 1 Hour +15 Minutes). The Single Club 30 Minute Custom Fit costs €50 and focuses on one club only (Irons or Drive or Wedges or Woods/Hybrids). The Putter Only 30 Minute Custom Fit costs €50, see question below for more information. If you are travelling a distance or from overseas and wish to book a longer custom fit, please get in touch so we can talk about your options hello@foregolf.ie
Are putter fittings available at ForeGolf?
Yes. We use TrackMan4 which can accurately gauge a large number of data points from your putts (read more) and helps us to decipher and demonstrate the best design and measurements for your new putter. All putters are hand built in our WorkShop and take approx. 14 days to be made. Our indoor synthetic putting green registers at 13 on the stimp meter. We have a comprehensive selection of putters available for fitting in Right Hand from Odyssey, Taylor Made and PXG. We can test your own putter during the session but we can ONLY build new putters from the session and cannot make adjustments to your current head. We do not have a large selection of putters to be tested for Left Hand Putters. The putter fittings take 30 minutes and cost €50 and can be booked online
What happens after my analysis fitting?
After testing your current clubs against our demonstration clubs, you will have experienced how our clubs perform and have an understanding of how we can help your game. At the end, you get a list of the clubs and shafts we believe will work best for you and how much they will cost. Following your order and deposit, we work out how the clubs need to be built in our workshop and your order goes into our build schedule. Approximately 14 working days later, your order is ready.
Why would I come to you and not my local pro-shop or golf superstore?
When it comes to golf equipment and shafts, we are the experts. All our clubs are hand built by us and not by the big companies, we have all of the major brands without being affiliated to any particular one; we test using real ball flight at a driving range; top craftsmanship; guaranteed results. Believe us, we were voted the World’s best Clubmakers in 2010 for a very good reason.
Why won’t your give me my specifications and let me buy my clubs elsewhere?
Because no one will build them matched to your custom fitting analysis like us. Why would you get custom fitted at ForeGolf and then assume you will get the same club built elsewhere? If your new clubs are not built EXACTLY the way that we spec them to be, you won’t get the same result. We are custom fitters but our real craft and expertise is the in the way our clubs are hand-built. Because we focus on less volume and more quality we can build clubs better than the big golf companies.
How long does it take to get new clubs?
Depending on which brand suits you, 14 working days. If we rebuild your own clubs it can take 7 working days.
Who does the analysis fittings?
The fitting sessions are looked after by David Williams and also ForeGolf owner Derek Murray.
Why do you hand build clubs?
Large golf companies have always had tolerances; a margin for error. It comes from making large volumes of clubs in huge factories. We decided to make sure our clubs were perfect, if the 5 iron needed to be 31* then it would be just that. We found that if our clubs were hand-built, they played better and our customers were happy golfers. We like to think that if Michelin handed out stars for making clubs then we would have a few stars in our golf restaurant. There is nothing wrong with a conveyor-belt style fast food outlet but we like the precision, perfection and quality just like a Michelin star. This is how we build clubs in our WorkShop.
Do you take trade-ins of my old clubs?
We will always try and use your own clubs and re-build them to suit you and as we don’t have a shop to sell them – we can’t take trade-ins. We have found a company with whom you can deal with directly.
I am a low handicapper, can I be custom fitted?
We have plenty of experience working with low handicappers but each time it’s always a welcome challenge. We know exactly how clubs help in the serious golfer’s pursuit of their very best game. After all, we’ve worked on The European Tour with the highest level of talent in the World: helping top players grab that vital extra shot per round. We have all the tricks of the trade and our fitters are experts at applying it. We bring structure, delivering more consistent and accurate clubs to help low handicappers win more. It’s that simple.
How long does it take to get used to my new clubs?
It shouldn’t take too long but we always ask to play at least 6 full rounds of golf just to let you and the clubs settle in together. If after that, something doesn’t feel right or you are not sure, then get in touch.
How much does the fitting analysis cost?
The 1 Hour Custom Fit costs €100 and goes through Driver, Irons, Woods, Wedges. (this custom fit is actually 75 minutes, ie 1 Hour +15 Minutes). The Single Club 30 Minute Custom Fit costs €50 and focuses on one club only (Irons or Drive or Wedges or Woods/Hybrids).  The Putter Only 30 Minute Custom Fit costs €50 
How much of a deposit?
We normally ask for a 50% deposit for any of our custom orders.
How much do the clubs cost?
The price really depends on the brand and the shaft. We can be a little more expensive than online suppliers or superstores, but that’s because we hand-build every club for guaranteed results. It’s like they say, ” At the end of the day, you get what you pay for”. Take a look at our price guide.
Do I get my fitting analysis fee back if I buy clubs from you?
Some places fit for free or give the fitting charge back if you buy from them. We didn’t want to compromise the quality of what we do, just so we could fit for free. We decided it was better to have the biggest range of test equipment with the best shafts.
Can I rebuild / refit my own clubs?
Yes, as long as the head design is suitable, and they are made from a material that can take the adjustment or rebuild. We are always happy to use your own heads (where possible).
Do you use a launch monitor?
Yes we have a Trackman 4 but we also like to fit by feel and ball flight. If the ball flight is good and the club feels great then job done. We use the technology of a launch monitor to reaffirm what we already know or to clearly demonstrate the benefits of a club change.
Do you have a shop / showroom?
Although we sell golf clubs, we are not a normal shop and we don’t have any clubs on display – at ForeGolf we have a ClubRoom where you get custom fitted and a WorkShop where we build clubs for you.
I am an high handicapper, can I be custom fitted?
Absolutely! High handicappers have the most to gain from custom fitting and have the shots to lose off their handicap by playing our clubs. Our session is all about the type of person you are and not about how many shots it takes you to go round your golf course. We need to measure you to find out what gives you the most trouble and then fix it through the clubs you use. It’s a bit like saying that if you’re a size 8 foot then you need us to measure you properly and get you a size 8 shoe. Our measuring service not only finds you the right size but allows us to build you the right clubs – making you play better.
What brands do you use?
We insist on a very level playing field so we have almost every brand. We work with Cleveland, Callaway, Cobra, Titleist, TaylorMade, Adams, Ping, Mizuno, Wilson and PXG. We also have shafts from Aldila, Oban, Fujikura, UST, Miyazaki, Grafalloy, Mitsushiba,True Temper, Nippon, FST/KBS and grips from Golf Pride, Winn and Lamkin. We are always looking for great products and will add to our list when we find a product our customers would like. Take a look at our relationship with the individual brands.
Do you repair broken golf clubs?
The ForeGolf workshop can repair all types of broken golf clubs. We can carry out reshafts for all the golf brands. Loft and Lie adjustments on most models and offer a full range of grips for regripping.
