Everything You Need to Know

Answers to All Your Questions

Golf Lessons FAQ

1. Do I need to have my own golf clubs for golf lessons?

If you have them, it's best to use your own golf clubs. Each club varies in terms of length, angle, weight, and shaft stiffness, and constantly switching can lead to confusion. If you don't have any, we offer rental clubs. Just leave a note when you register for lessons.

2. What should I wear for golf lessons?

For golf lessons, sports attire and sneakers are acceptable.

3. I'm a beginner; how many lessons do I need before I can play on a course?

I offer a 2-hour beginner clinic, which serves as an introductory lesson. This clinic provides some basic skills and information at an entry level. However, for a more comprehensive learning experience, I recommend taking at least 5 to 10 private lessons. This will give you the foundation and confidence needed to practice on your own and eventually play on a golf course.

4. Where are the lessons held?

For beginners whose swings are not yet well-developed, the Tracer Golf Indoor Practice Range offers the opportunity to build a solid foundation with the help of dual cameras and swing analysis equipment.

For golfers who have reached a level where their swings are more consistent, lessons can be conducted at the outdoor driving range at Markham Golf Dome, where they can directly observe real ball trajectory and ball contact.

5. How do I make a payment for golf lessons?

When a lesson is booked, you will receive a confirmation email with all the details, along with an invoice. You can pay the invoice via credit card through the email, or you can pay in person on the first day of the lesson with cash, debit, or credit card.

Golf Club Regrip/Repair FAQ

1. How long does it take to regrip my golf clubs?

If the desired grip is in stock or if you bring your own grips, it takes about 5-7 minutes per club. Regripping a full set typically takes around 1 hour. You can also drop off your clubs and pick them up the next day.

If the desired grip is not in stock, we will need to place an order. Grips are usually delivered on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, so if you place an order by the previous Thursday, regripping can be done by the following Wednesday.

Please note that TJ's schedule is not consistent due to golf lessons. It is essential to contact us and make an appointment before visiting.

2. Can you adjust the length of golf clubs?

Yes, we can adjust the length of golf clubs.

Shortening the shaft by cutting it can be done at no additional cost other than the grip replacement fee if it is done during a grip replacement.

Lengthening the shaft is a bit more complicated. Depending on whether you have a steel or graphite shaft, we will need to attach a piece of the same material to the end of the shaft. After applying glue and letting it sit for a day, we will cut it to the desired length and install a new grip. This process will incur additional costs for the parts and labor, in addition to the grip replacement fee.

If you are unsure how much to cut or lengthen, please contact TJ for advice. Knowing your height and the distance from the ground to your wrist when standing straight can provide a rough idea. However, if the length adjustment is aimed at optimizing performance rather than just matching your height, it is essential to consult with an expert. This process can be more complicated than it seems due to various factors.

In General FAQ

1. How long does it take to break a score of 100?

Beginner golfers typically aim to break a score of 100. The time it takes to achieve this can vary greatly depending on the individual's athletic ability, practice methods, equipment, and golf strategy. It can take anywhere from a few months to several years. However, according to the National Golf Foundation (NGF), about 55% of all golfers do not break 100 regularly. This means that, on average, 55 out of 100 golfers do not achieve a score under 100.

Never say never. With the help of a professional and determination to keep improving, breaking 100 is an achievable goal. But don’t be discouraged even if you are not able to reach it—enjoying golf is not solely about achieving a good score. As long as you understand the proper rules and etiquette, you can enjoy the game with anyone.
