About The Club Guy
Curtis Colvin - The Club Guy, Club Guy Golf
Hi, my name is Curtis, also known as “The Club Guy”.
The other question that I get is, how did I get started in this business? I started working for a driving range in Northern Virginia (Woody’s Golf Range) as a full time manager in 1996.
We used to get golfers coming in and asking if we did any repair work, grips, etc. Being good with my hands I decided to give club repair a try as a side job. With the blessing of the owner and the support of the other managers I opened a small (emphasis on small!) shop at the range, took classes and read all I could get my hands on. From there I did a variety of repairs and gained experience.
If I ran into something that I had never done there was always a clubmaker somewhere that was willing to share his knowledge. So for eight years I grew the business from a part-time job at the range and then full time at a golf course. After moving to North Carolina, I opened my shop in January, 2006.
My experience in golf club repair, custom clubs, swing coaching and other related areas comes from being lucky in having some great people that were willing to share what they knew.
I am a certified “Class A” Clubmaker through the Professional Clubmakers Society. I have, over the years, attended many seminars and classes. Some of my certifications include, Rifle Shaft Certified, and a Ping and Titleist certified fitter. Most of these classes required that I travel and pay for the class and be tested to obtain the certification.
My years at the driving range and working along with PGA professional teachers has given me a background in swing mechanics, from beginners to accomplished golfers. The relationship of golf equipment and how it affects the golf swing is a critical part of my work or recommendations.
If you have any questions, please send me an e-mail, pick up the phone or stop by. I would love to show you my shop and just talk to you about your game.
Thanks and remember – every golfer needs a Club Guy!
Curtis...The Club Guy
Before I went to see Curtis my average score was 85-86, 6 weeks later I was averaging 80-81 and had shot 2 73's, both during my club's Match play event. Everyone at the club was wondering how I had improved so much so fast!
Curtis is super easy to work with and has a way of getting you to understand what you should be trying to accomplish next. He fixed the loft/lie on my irons, and that made a huge difference. It's amazing to see the tape before, with ball marks all over the clubface, and then the after where all the ball marks overlap each other. He also has an indoor hitting area with computer analysis of your impact and ball flight. This makes working on your swing much easier and you can see feedback instantly without worrying about the weather.
Lastly, but just as important, there is a putting area. I had been looking for someone to help me fine tune my putting stroke and Curtis did a great job. I can stand over a put now and feel confident that I am going to hit it along the line that I have picked out. So if you want to work on you game and make big improvements, go see The Club Guy!
