Former facility in Spring, Texas, relocates to The Woodlands

Relocating from 25415 N. Ih-45, Suite B in Spring, Texas, the new facility will be staffed by a veteran team of highly-trained coaches and includes four teaching / practice bays along with a putting / warm-up area. These coaches leverage GOLFTEC’s world-renowned teaching technology – including advanced motion measurement, video analysis, premium launch monitors and putting lessons powered by TECPUTT – to help golfers of any skill level find the right path toward improvement. GOLFTEC students drop an average of seven strokes from their scores.

The new location also features the company’s enhanced custom club fitting program. The TOUR-like fitting experience combines swing characteristics with ball flight data to help identify optimal equipment for each student. An array of clubhead/shaft options are available to perfectly match players with the clubs that best meet their needs. Nearly 75% of those who have gone through a GOLFTEC driver fitting have gained an average of 25 yards over their previous equipment.

“Houstonians are incredibly passionate about golf and we have a great history in the region, as our team provides roughly 35,000 lessons annually,” says Co-Founder and CEO of GOLFTEC, Joe Assell. “We are proud to have six locations to service the community and offer packages to meet the needs of everyone from avid golfers to those are just starting their golf journey.”

The Woodlands GOLFTEC Center Manager Katie Finney will oversee operations of the new facility. A LPGA Professional and winner of the inaugural 2009 PGA Women's Pro-Pro Tournament, Finney has over 8 years of experience teaching and game improvement.

“Teaching and club-fitting is of upmost importance to any growing golf sector,” says Finney. “Our staff will make it their mission to help every golfer feel confident before heading out to the course.”

In GOLFTEC’s video series, “Making The Turn”, Houston-area GOLFTEC student John Purcell was featured for his amazing transformation from an 18-handicap to a two-handicap. Prior to seeking help at GOLFTEC, John was an avid player who loved competition but could not understand why practice did not improve his results. With the help of dedicated coaches, he is now competing at a very high-level in various state amateur tournaments.
