Should I tip a club fitter

Recommended Posts

We spent close to 4 hours saturday with a club fitter, who works at a high end golf course nearby. The fitting cost $375.00 for a complete set for my daugther. The pro did a fantastic job. I am also orderin the clubs through them. He saved me quite a bit of $ on the clubs. What do you think, is it normal to tip these guys?

May as well. That's not a lot of money. If it was a thousand dollar set of irons, his "tip" is likely included in the profits (though if you're spending $1000 a $50 tip isn't much either).

I'd say so. When I fitted people I never expected any tip (even though I didn't make a dime off fitting people). It was really nice when people would though. One of our pros fit a doctor into some new clubs. The pro helped him with his swing as well as figuring our the right clubs. Guy tipped him $150 because he said nobody had ever worked with him that hard. But I digress.
