Welcome to our 5th Winter with the St. Charles Performance Center. Your Performance Center has

provided members of St. Charles the opportunity to improve their games year round with the assistance

of your professionals and with the use of the best technology in the industry.

Our Instruction philosophy is simple. We do not teach methods, we teach individual players. Through

our years of experience and studies with the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), it has become very clear

in the golf world that there is not a specific "method" that can be applied to each player. We are all

different in how we swing the club. Components of every swing method in golf certainly do have their

applications. Each golfer brings different physical characteristics to the game that form the patterns to

their swing, pitching, and putting. Looking at the players below, there is not one back swing that is the

same, but all strike the ball wonderfully. As professionals, we try to find the most efficient way to

improve on your patterns and ultimately your skills as a golfer. Function comes before form. Most

players are missing one or two simple components in their swing that can be easy to implement and

provide increased efficiency to their ball striking or other areas of their game. 

Our education and technology provides us insight to the easiest

path to improvement for you. Our Swing Catalyst Video and

Force Plate, K-Vest and Foresight launch monitors provide us

the feedback to see clearly which movements need to be

addressed to increase the efficiency of your swing. TPI

assessments help us determine what movements you can

and cannot perform while offering solutions to improve on

your limitations. Through simple drills and exercises, these

movement patterns can be changed with the assistance of your

instructor and some practice time.

Maybe its not a "swing change" that is in order, and is often not

the case. In many scenarios simply having the tools to work on

your rhythm, tempo, balance or tension can prove to make

great strides in your performance. Often we blame mechanics

for a bad shot, when it can be as easy as putting our attention All play professionally but have different
towards sequence and timing. Our professionals explore those back swing positions.

best swing on the course.

When visiting one of our professionals, they will provide an initial assessment and discuss with you the

history of your game and what your goals are. We will develop a plan specific to you. We will guide you

on how to practice through the off season and how to best utilize your performance center. Golf is a

challenging game that requires practice to see improvements. Our professionals will be with you every

step of the way to make sure your time is maximized and your game improves.

I invite all of our members to use their performance center. The details of our programs and how to use

the facility are outlined in this booklet. I am sure you will be impressed with our technology and

professional staff, making the indoor golf experience an enjoyable way to see improvements in your

The St. Charles Performance Center is your home for year
round club fitting. This facility enhances the member
experience while providing a comfortable environment for
our members. Using the best technology in the industry, the
Performance Center is an excellent compliment to what is
the most comprehensive fitting program in the province. 
Your fitter will work with you to ensure that the clubs you purchase are the best for
your game. Factors such as; length, lie angle, swing weight, club weight, distance
gaping and much more can go a long way to ensuring the clubs you purchase help
you play your best golf. Using our Foresight Sports GC Quad Launch monitor, your
fitter will analyze the following parameters:

Ball Speed Spin Rate
Contact Location Peak Height
Landing Angle
Launch Angle Total Distance
Carry Distance


Most golfers overlook the importance of getting their putter fit when it may be the
most important club in your bag. Whether you would like to go through the Edel or
Ping Vault putter fitting system to experience different weighting, counter
weighting and aim testing protocols or just looking to purchase a putter off the
rack, talk to your professional staff to make sure you choose the putter that best
suits your stroke!

The St. Charles Performance Center is your home for year round club
fitting. This facility enhances the member experience while providing
a comfortable environment for our members while using the best
technology in the industry. The Performance Center is an excellent
compliment to what is the most comprehensive fitting program in the
province. Fitting golf equipment is an important process for all golfers.
Properly fitted clubs enhance your performance while playing a
significant role in the development of your swing. 

Using improperly fitted golf equipment can lead to a swing of
compensations by being forced to accommodate golf clubs that are too long
or short, too heavy or have improper shaft characteristics. Fitting and golf
instruction work together as one and knowledge of both is required for a
proper fit. Our fitting process and tools provide us the ability to find the best
clubs for your game, without bias to a particular brand. Our experience as
instructors allows us to fit equipment that increases performance and
encourages the proper dynamic of your swing. 

We are fortunate to be the regional fitting center for Titleist, while additionally being the primary

fitters in Winnipeg for Ping, TaylorMade, Callaway, Cobra, Mizuno and Edel. This provides us

considerabley more options in shafts and heads than other club fitters, making our program the

most comprehensive fitting program of any club on the prairies. We can fit your entire bag, from

driver to wedges. Putter fitting is as important as fitting the other 13 clubs in your

bag, and we do that also! St. Charles is one of the twelve EDEL

putter fitters in Canada. The EDEL system uses various putter

styles and offset types to find the putter that you align best. We

measure loft, head weight, shaft flex and counterbalancing to

optimize speed control. Optimizing aim and speed will result in

more putts dropping in the hole. When you buy a putter off the

rack, there is no telling if you align it correctly or if the weight is

best for your speed control. Whether you are looking to get a

putter off the rack or get fit for an edel, spend the appropriate

amount of time with your professional staff to ensure the putter

you choose is the best putter for you!
