Ken announces staff update. 

PGA Professional Charles Kilkenny now owns the golf shop and will be available for lessons and fittings. Call for more information. 

 

Ken announces new Customer Loyalty Benefit Program 

One of the questions I get asked the most here in the shop is:

"Ken, what services can I expect for my fitting fees, in addition to my equipment purchase?"

I now have a clear answer to that question. 

The CLBP is a program being designed to reward and benefit all those who are going to be fitted, or have already been fitted, here at the shop in Fishkill. It is designed to reward my past, present, and future clients with outstanding customer service that is guaranteed to help you play better golf. 

Here is just a sample of the program, that will be fully implemented once the 2007 golf season starts. Remember, this program will be INCLUDED in your purchase of any Fitting.

  1. Lifetime iron lie and loft check ups and adjustments as long as you own the clubs.
  2. Discounts on future regripping.
  3. Discounts on future repairs, and in some cases, free repairs.
  4. Free polishing/clean up as needed.
  5. Free shipping on any phone, email, or internet orders thereafter.
  6. Discounts on future purchases and fittings.
  7. Trade in bonuses.
  8. One free 15 minute lesson a year, on request.
  9. A copy of your swing on CD-ROM or DVD, on request.
  10. Free Junior Fitting with purchase (under 10)

Can you think of anything else? Just ask...

I thank you for the privilege of being your clubmaker and clubfitter.
