Club Fitting

Club Fitting at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course

With the addition of SwingFit in 2016, Palmetto Dunes is now the only resort in the lowcountry with a true custom clubfitter that has been recognized on Golf Digest’s List of 100 Best Clubfitters for 2015/2016 & 2017/2018!

SwingFit is the premier custom club fitter in the Southeast, located at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course on beautiful Hilton Head Island. They fit all major brands including PXG, Titleist, TaylorMade, Callway, Mizuno, Ping, Cobra and Edel. SwingFit is also the only fitter in North or South Carolina to have the Edel Single Length Iron fitting system. SwingFit ensures that you're not simply buying new clubs, you're buying new clubs that are guaranteed to work!

SwingFit fittings go far beyond what is offered at Big Box retail, pro shops or demo days. The team of experienced club fitters will guide you through a proprietary and vendor agnostic fitting process that leverages our extensive demo assortment of over 10,000 head and shaft combinations. The top priority of the fitting is to find clubs that help you play better and more enjoyable golf on the course, not simply hit a couple of long shots on the range.

Additionally, SwingFit builds almost every club they fit. This allows them to use the best possible shafts and control the build tolerances. Even a club that is fit perfectly will not perform if it isn’t built to the exact specifications needed.

Fitting Details & Options

NEW Gears 3D Motion Tracking
Golf Performance Scans

2 - 2.5 Hours

SwingFit utilizes the Gears system offering performance scans. Temporary reflectors are placed on your clubs while you warm up, get into the Gears suit and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your game. You then take 2-3 swings each with your driver, fairway, hybrid or long iron, mid iron and a wedge. Results will include a detailed equipment report with specs that include what clubs are helping your game and any opportunities for improvement, a swing analysis that highlights the strengths and weaknesses of your swing across each type of club and videos of your swing that you can easily share with your instructor and friends.

Prepare for your Fitting

Please arrive a few minutes early for your fitting to make sure you have some time to relax and stretch a bit. If possible, bring your existing clubs that you wish to get fit for as well as shoes, clothes and a glove. We’ll be hitting quite a few balls so we don’t recommend playing or working out before you come.

Equipment Assessment and Interview

We’ll get specs from these as well as learn the challenges you may be having with them and what you want out of the new clubs.


After a warmup, you’ll hit several shots with your existing clubs to establish a performance baseline that accounts for the balls we use and that day’s weather wind and air pressure. We’ll compare the different fitting options against this baseline to make sure we’re providing you with better performance.


Following our proprietary fitting process, we’ll test multiple head and shaft combinations from our extensive fitting matrix to find the best balance of distance, consistency and control. In a departure from most fitters, our first priority is NOT to optimize the ball flight and distance on your occasional best shots. Rather, we focus on increasing the number of good and great shots that you do have. This focus translates to a better scorecard rather than simply an improved range session.


We have an open discussion with you about our findings, recommendations, performance expectations and costs.

Club Building

Our master club builders assemble almost every club we fit. This allows us to ensure that every part of your clubs meets our standards before we begin. The clubs are built to the exact specifications from the fitting with incredibly tight tolerances that provide consistent results club to club.

Club Delivery

We stock a great number of heads and shafts in our shop to expedite turnaround. Given the thousands of combinations we unfortunately can’t stock everything. If we do have to order components, we can almost always get them in our hands within 1-2 weeks. If you’re a local we’ll notify you when everything is done, but if you’re traveling, we’ll package everything up with care and ship it to your home once it’s completed.
