New 2015 Fujikura Golf Shafts

Fujikura golf shafts have the reputation of being “#1 shaft on Tour”, “Best performance shaft”, Highest quality and most consistent shaft”, and “Best technology and R&D”. With all of this hype, it can be assumed that these golf shafts will automatically enhance your performance on the course. NGF research has proven that today, golfers must experience the benefits themselves due to the fact that there are so many different options when it comes to equipment. With this idea in mind, it is apparent that many golfers, with this economy, are solely choosing their equipment based on price rather than performance. Fujikura golf shafts offer unique swing characteristics. Vice President, Alex Dee, states, “Fujikura employs advanced technologies and analytics to enrich knowledge in this field. Our Enso system is at the heart of Fujikura shaft design and development. Enso allows us to measure the shaft’s dynamic performance and effect on the club head orientations, position, and velocities with incredible accuracy. With systems at our US and Tokyo offices, the knowledge we gain on a daily basis with Enso enables Fujikura to validate new design concepts and enhances our ability to fit golfers to the opitmal Fujikura shaft.” Investing your money into a golf shaft that you know will improve your performance is well worth it. 99.6% of golfers who are fitted with a Fujikura custom shaft instantly gain an average of 13.5 yards. For experts today, Fujikura’s new Speeder Evolution has increased the overall club performance by increasing club head...

Stoneybrook Golf & Country Club Reopens with Wilczynski’s Design Skills

Stoneybrook Golf & Country Club Reopens with Wilczynski’s Design Skills

Last April, Stoneybrook Golf & Country Club closed for an extensive renovation. The country club has officially reopened and is a lot more user-friendly and beautiful for golfers! Chris Wilczynski, whose firm C.W. Golf Architecture masterminded the $1.2 million project at the 20-year-old club on Florida’s Gulf Coast, designed the brand new course at Stoneybrook. General Manager of Stoneybrook, Frank Leahy, states, “The anticipation has been building, no question. We have a large contingent of members who head north for the summer, and they’re eager to see the changes. We’ve also been leaving carts out for our year-round members, so they can tour the property. They’re very enthusiastic about what they’ve seen.” Stoneybrook Golf & Country Club is set up in community style; every resident and homeowner in the gated community is a member of the club. With the renovation, Stoneybrook’s revenue is fixed and even the most subtle changes to the course have reduced maintenance hours and cost. The renovation included a complete reconstruction of every green, tee and bunker on the course. Every green was stripped down to the original sub-grade and then rebuilt to U.S. Golf Association specifications with new, fresh soil and TifEagle bermuda grass. This was chosen so that pests would not damage the new greens once the renovation was finished. Every tee placed on the course was realigned, leveled and re-grassed to make for more precise golfing. It was also decided to remove all pepper trees, which are an invasive species that had encroached on areas throughout the course. Additionally, at hole #6, Wilczynski relocated a cart path that had long raised the ire...

Partner of Golf Datatech, John Krzynowek, explains, “If the industry is going to market effectively to women golfers and grow that piece of the market, then knowing the size and scope of the segment is critical. The women’s golf market has long been undeserved, in spite of the fact women are passionate about the game and have proven to spend considerably on apparel and shoes, while being undeserved in equipment, particularly in golf clubs.” The results of the study indicated that women value the social, physical and aesthetic attributes that have made golf an attractive sport for many generations. Female golfers that are under the age of 40 showed that they are more likely to use golf as a valuable business resource. 90% of women cited that they play golf for their general well-being, 80% indicated that they play for the challenge and competition, and 70% showed they play for the social interaction.
