If you would like to get worked in for a fitting please contact us directly as we will be shut down after this Friday through New Year’s.

Sorry to have to end this early but the Holiday Gift Certificate Special (good towards any fitting and/or custom club purchase) will be ending early with a limit/maximum gift certificate purchase amount of $1,000. Simply click on the link below, enter the number of $100 certificates you would like to purchase, and the 10% discount will be taken off the total. After purchase we will contact you to get the certificate details and we will then email you the custom certificate which you can present. Thanks so much for everyone’s support of Hodson Golf and Happy Holidays to all.
The G400 driver continues to pick up leading stats on the tour and we have been extremely pleased with the results on our end. Also got to see the new Ping G400 Max driver which will be 460cc (vs 445) with the highest MOI of any leading driver out there. The great thing about the Max driver is it still has an almost identical look to the current G400 driver line but with a deeper face. Best of all a nice square look vs the draw/hook face of most high MOI/forgiving drivers now out there. Also got to see the new Max Iron line which really has us excited. Sorry folks but these won’t be available until next year after the PGA merchandising show where they will be officially released.
Looks like winter will be rearing it’s ugly head beginning next week. For all of you that have been sitting on the fence or wanted to get that special golfer custom fitted clubs for the holidays, the time is now to book your fitting. Looks like a 3 day rain event next week will usher in much cooler weather into the holiday season. Contact us now for availability and take advantage of this unseasonable weather we are now having.
This is a great article for all you gearheads and novices alike regarding shafts and helps to explain what “real deal” “made for” “aftermarket” “etc.etc.etc.”. This just adds more fuel to the fire and only supports what we have been saying since day one (you get what you pay for).
Take advantage of the off-season or just get everything ready for you snow birds heading south for the winter. Hodson Golf is now offering some great gift certificate and repair/fitting specials for the winter season.
- Discount Holiday Gift Certificates – Perfect gift for the golfer who has everything
