Aerotech Steelfiber had a great week (again!)

SteelFiber graphite iron shafts, the No. 1 graphite iron shafts in golf, delivered five Top 10’s this week on the PGA, LPGA and Champion tours. Designed and manufactured by Aerotech Golf, SteelFiber shafts scored two T4’s at the Canadian Open, two T5’s at the ShopRite LPGA Classic and one T10 at the Mastercard Japan Championship.

Playing SteelFiber i95 graphite shafts in his irons, the 2012 FedEx Cup champion shot 69 in three rounds and a tournament low score of 60 for a T4 finish. Last year he even bested that score when he blazed a 59 at the Wyndham Championship. Meanwhile, SteelFiber J-series and SteelFiber i80 shafts grabbed two T5 positions at the ShopRite LPGA Classic and SteelFiber i95 irons took a share of 10th-place at the Mastercard Japan Championship.

“SteelFiber shafts continue to deliver consistent performance week after week on pro tours around the world,” says Chris Hilleary, president of Aerotech Golf. “Unlike traditional steel as well as other graphite shafts, innovative SteelFiber technology provides unique performance-enhancing benefits such as reducing the risk of injury, lessening aggravation of existing injuries and decreasing player fatigue, while simultaneously delivering greater distance and accuracy.”

SteelFiber shafts provide superior performance through revolutionary composite engineering that combines a high-modulus graphite core with 59 miles of steel fiber lacing the shaft surface. The shaft’s graphite core provides vibration dampening, increased clubhead speed and maximum distance, while the steel fibers produce optimum weighting for a solid feel at impact and add stability and control for pinpoint accuracy.

Aerotech Golf shafts are available as custom options with many nationally celebrated golf club manufacturers such as PXG, Callaway, Titleist, TaylorMade, Ping, Cobra, Bridgestone Golf, Wilson, Cleveland Golf, Miura, Srixon, KZG and Nakashima Golf. Aerotech Golf shafts are also available through professional golf clubfitters around the world. Aerotech Golf is a proud supporter of the Association of Golf Clubfitting Professionals (AGCP) and the International Clubmakers Guild (ICG).

Your Guide to Some of Virginia’s Best Golf Courses for 2019

Your Guide to Some of Virginia’s Best Golf Courses for 2019

Riverfront Golf Club

Surrounded by native terrains such as luxurious rivers, impressive mountain ranges, and the stunning Atlantic Ocean, the state of Virginia has earned a reputation as one of the most beautiful places in America to take in a round of golf.

These natural wonders provide Virginia with the prime real estate to develop elegant golf courses that incorporate all of these majestic outdoor features to create layouts that are as entertaining as they are challenging to golfers of all skill levels.

We’ve pinpointed seven courses in the state that provide the best golfing experiences that Virginia has to offer. Here are our reviews of each course and why you should carve out a day in your schedule to play the location.

 

The Cascades at Omni Homestead—Hot SpringsThe Omni Homestead Resort

With a jaw-dropping view of the Allegheny Mountains, the Cascades golf course at the Omni Homestead resort is one of the best courses, not just in Virginia, but in all of America.

A few miles from Hot Springs, the Cascades is a historic course, fast approaching its 100th birthday. Even though the layout may be long in the tooth, the course plays as fresh and as fun as a golf club that has just opened.

With a combination of blind tee shots and narrow fairways, the course is for the weekend warrior who loves a bit of risk-versus-reward golf. The fairways and greens are smooth and well-manicured, but you better take some time to putt before your round, because the greens are slick and fast.

Surrounded by stunning beauty while delivering one of the biggest golfing adventures you can have in Virginia, the Cascades is a golf course worth the trip.

 

The River Course at Kingsmill Resort—WilliamsburgKingsmill

Along the James River, The River Course at Kingsmill Resort is another delightful course that provides postcard-worthy views while you appreciate exceptional golf. The scenery is so lovely, don’t be surprised if you pull your phone out to take snapshots as often as you remove a club from your bag to play a shot.

Formerly home to several professional tournaments, you’ll notice right away that the course delivers the goods worthy for the titans of the PGA and LPGA Tours. Even though those tournaments have moved on, the same high-quality course remains for amateurs to savor and enjoy.

Like the Cascades, The River Course has pristine fairways and greens to play upon, but the course will challenge your skill level and ask for your best.

With sparkling conditions that are surrounded by eye-popping natural attractions, the River course is an absolute must-play for residents and travelers alike.

 

Meadow Farms Golf Course—Richmond

Outside of Fredericksburg rests one of the best public courses in Virginia. Meadow Farms Golf Course offers outstanding value and wildly entertaining golf. What makes Meadow Farms one of the most enjoyable courses in the state is that golfers have 27 holes to choose from to create their perfect round of golf.

Throughout the course, golfers can expect to see elevated tees, rocks, and elevated railroad tie walls and island greens. If you are looking for one of the most unique holes in America, then play the signature par-six, an 841-yard hole at Meadow Farms. Recognized as the longest hole in America, the hole offers golfers of all skill levels the opportunity to bring home a birdie and an excellent story for their friends.

Meadow Farms is very affordable, making it a great place to bring the entire family for a great day at the course.

 

The Gold Course at Golden Horseshoe Golf Club—Williamsburg

Another top-notch golf course located in Williamsburg and close to the River Course is the Gold Course at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club. Although the Club has two extraordinary courses on its grounds, the Gold Course is the crown jewel for those golfers who seek championship golf.

What’s great about the Gold Course is the strategy found in the gameplay over the 18-hole layout. This course demands your best game, but that doesn’t mean it is for professionals only. Amateurs who choose to skip this course will be missing out on one of the real treasures of public golf in Virginia.

If you are still on the fence about the Gold Course, then go to experience playing the four par-3s, all featuring tee shots over water. Each hole has a unique design that requires a different shot, but each blast off the tee box will have you holding your breath until you see your ball land on the green.

 

Royal New Kent Golf Club—Providence Forge

For golfers who want a bit of the old country in their golf travels, then the Royal New Kent Golf Club, located east of Richmond, is the place for you. This links-style course is wide open, featuring shared fairways and the largest greens you’ve probably ever seen.

As a result of the design, golfers won’t worry so much about accuracy on the Royal New Kent as they do about just relaxing and having a great time on the five-star course. The fun you can have here is one of the biggest reasons why the Royal New Kent is perfect for large groups of golf-loving friends.

The course itself is truly authentic, with rock walls, tall fescue grass, and the same elevated grassy knolls that you’d experience in Scotland. At times, you’ll feel like you are playing on a course best suited for the English coastline. The course is just that good and too irresistible to miss on a trip to Virginia.

 

The Highland Course at Primland—Meadows of Danprimland

The Highland Course at Primland is another breathtaking golf course cut through the area’s dramatic mountain range. In the fall, the trees that line the fairways and shape the holes are multi-colored, giving you a kaleidoscope of Virginia’s natural elegance.

Players of all ages and skill levels love playing the Highland Course because it is another strong links-style addition to the state’s lineup of incredible courses. The grounds, kept at professional-grade levels, feature undulating fairways that offer peeks into the valleys that run throughout the course.

Elevation changes run along the fairways as the layout weaves through the mountains. Don’t forget to bring your camera for a picture on the par-three 8th, a hole that plays straight downhill leaving you to hit a towering tee shot.

One last tip, before you hit the course, take in the club’s terrific practice facilities while drinking in the gorgeous views that stretch for miles in every direction. It is an excellent introduction to one of Virginia’s most beautiful golf courses.

 

Spring Creek Golf Club—Gordonsville

Another picturesque “only-in-Virginia” golf course is the Spring Creek Golf Club in Gordonsville. What’s remarkable about Spring Creek is that it has been designed to challenge the professional but remain accessible to the amateur. For either level of golfer, the course plays to their game.

At Spring Creek, the course architects have made small adjustments that work to involve golfers of all skill levels. For example, the fairways are over forty yards wide until you get to around the 300-yard marker, which allows for example mid-handicappers golfers to perfect their craft. At that length, the typical landing zone for a professional golfer’s drive, the fairways narrow considerably.

What this unique perk ultimately means is that Spring Creek is a five-star golf course created for everyone. For those who make the trek to Spring Creek, they can expect world-class golf that captivates and dazzles with every shot.

 

These are just a few of the fun, challenging golf courses located in Virginia. With some of the best courses in the country, you’ll find a wide array of courses to help you hone your golf skills this year!

New Barney Adams Stability Putter Shafts now available

New Barney Adams Stability Putter Shafts now available

For those of you in the know, Barney Adams started Adams Golf years ago with some unique and game changing designs. Although he sold Adams Golf years ago he has still been in the game as both a consultant and designer. His latest creation focuses specifically on the most important club in the bag – the putter (namely the shaft/engine that helps that putter perform). His research has produced some enlightening results and the demand from tour players (who are not paid to use and/or endorse this shaft) is growing weekly. We are now proud to offer these shafts and combined with the new Gravity Grip from Guerin Rife this combination is pricey but well worth it to help you shave some strokes on the green.

Note: these shafts/grips can be professionally installed by Hodson Golf in our tour trailer. Please contact us today to set up a fitting to determine your optimal putter setup (we can use your existing putter or build you up a complete custom putter setup with either EvnRoll or Ping).

Professional Private Fitting vs Demo Day – What’s the deal?

Professional Private Fitting vs Demo Day – What’s the deal?

To avoid any confusion we would just like to clarify a few things to those interested or curious as to what the overall process is for a private personal fitting. You can find answers to most of your questions here on our site but again just to clarify – A fitting is NOT like a demo day!

Prior to your fitting we will provide you with a questionnaire, and during the fitting we will guide you through the optimum equipment choices to enhance your overall game. The questionnaire will also allow us to focus on certain brands/models that you may be specifically interested in. For full bag fittings we rarely end up with all clubs from a certain manufacturer. We are going to fit you in the best equipment regardless of brand to achieve the best performing equipment for your specific game.

Unlike a demo day where people line up to basically hit free balls with each manufacturers stock clubs (that you can find lining the shelves at any big box) we custom fit for your specific needs and generally end up with certain shaft/head combinations that are simply not available with typical OEM stock clubs.

Timing is everything – We would advise you to book your fitting now!

We have steadily been knocking out the fittings every week but requests continue to pile up (we now have over 50 people on our weekly availability email that we send out every Monday). One of the first questions that everyone asks after the fitting runs along the lines of “I’m leaving on my yearly golf trip in two weeks will the clubs be ready”. The further we get into March (and definitely April) expect build/delivery times to only get pushed back further and further. An example would be the new (and in high demand) Callaway Apex Smoke mix set. Those are now expecting an early May delivery!

On top of that, we were booked out nearly 5 weeks towards the end of March last year and the way things are currently progressing, I would anticipate that to be even worse this year.

About Andrew Hodson

I am the youngest with in a golfing family which has spanned three generations. My grandfather started the tradition in England (Bert Hodson-1931 Ryder Cup Team) and has since passed on his knowledge and love of the game. Although I did not follow in the steps of my father and grandfather on a professional golfing level, my love of the game and commitment to accurately fit equipment has only grown. Even as a kid I enjoyed re-gripping clubs which eventually led to refinishing wood heads, re-shafting, and now has culminated in more detailed custom club fitting, building, and repair.

Great unbiased article from Golfwrx regarding the Aerotech Steelfiber iron shafts

Great unbiased article from Golfwrx regarding the Aerotech Steelfiber iron shafts

As one of the original dealers for Aerotech, I can honestly say they have been my go to premium graphite iron shafts since they were introduced. These shafts are a must for anyone looking to transition out of steel but not quite ready for most of the unstable lightweight graphite shaft products currently out there. Don’t take my word for it though, just check out there website to see how many tour players (on all tours) are using them (non-contractually I might add). Here is a great article recently from GolfWrx. Aerotech has also released a couple of new iron shafts for the golfer looking for that higher launch/lower spin with added stability which is tough (if not impossible) to find in most high launch graphite iron shafts

Mizuno posts some impressive numbers at the Honda Classic

Congratulations to Keith Mitchell who won his first PGA Tour event this weekend at the Honda Classic while also recording a first tour win for Mizuno’s hot low-spinning ST190 driver. Personally I love the fact that less than half the players listed below who use Mizuno Irons aren’t even contracted to play them!

Tourney Stats & what’s in the bag

Mitchell, with a set of MP-18 irons, was one of four Mizuno iron players to hold the lead on the final day at PGA National.  

Mitchell, Lucas Glover, Adam Schenk and Jhonnaton Vegas were all featured on the leaderboard at PGA National – with 4 of the final top 6 finishers playing Mizuno irons on the day.
