St. Charles Custom Club Fitting
The St. Charles Performance Center is the perfect place for you to get fitted for all 14 clubs in your bag. Properly fit golf equipment
will play a significant role in the development of your swing and enhance your performance on the golf course. Utilizing the best
technology in the industry through our fitting process gives us the ability to find the best clubs for your game, without bias to a
particular brand. Fitting and instruction work together; our experience in both give you the opportunity to go through the most
comprehensive fitting program in the province.
We are fortunate to be the regional fitting center for Titleist, while additionally being the primary fitters in Winnipeg for Cobra,
Callaway, Mizuno and TaylorMade. This provides us considerably more options in shafts and heads than other club fitters, making
our program the most comprehensive fitting program of any Club on the prairies. Your entire bag can be fit, from driver to wedges.
Putter fitting is as important as fitting the other 13 clubs in your bag...and we do that as well. St. Charles is one of three EDEL putter
fitters in Canada. The EDEL system uses various putter styles and offset types to find the putter that you aim best. We measure loft,
head weight, shaft flex and counterbalancing to optimize speed control. Optimizing aim and speed control will result in more putts
dropping in the hole. Edel provides our members with a tour level putter fitting experience!

to players who have competitive ambitions locally, provincially and nationally. Our golf events provide our juniors the opportunity
to play in individual and team competitions, while also providing fun events where score is the last thing that matters! In fact, if you
participate in all of our scheduled golf events you will have played over 40 games of golf without ever booking a tee time!
The junior program is an important component to the family atmosphere at St. Charles. We want all of our members to feel welcome
to bring their children to the club and learn the game of golf. Golf is one of the only sports where you can play with your children
and not just watch your children play. Please feel welcome to contact any of our professional staff for more information on our

St. Charles Country Club is pleased to announce an outstanding membership benefit which will provide Club members with the
ability to golf at a number of private country clubs across Canada without the necessity of a green fee.
In the past, an unofficial reciprocal play agreement existed among the private golf clubs of Canada, whereby, a tee time could usually
be set up with the payment of a green fee. This practice will continue for the vast majority of Clubs.
The following Clubs have agreed to, on a limited basis, provide golfing members of St. Charles Country Club with a tee time on a
complimentary basis – as will St. Charles provide for their members. The intent of these agreements is to permit full active golf
members in good standing to have full playing and clubhouse privileges at the reciprocal club, subject to the respective host club’s
local Rules, Regulations, Dress Code, Policies and Procedures. Guests are permitted with a green fee.
