Golf Etc.

Shop gives custom guidance, equipment

Golf Etc. in Magnolia offers customers both quality equipment and the knowledge of how it functions. Manager Brooke Bastin said he uses the software Better Golf Faster to determine the best club size and weight for his customers.

"One of our company's slogans is we are the 'Tour van for the common man,' which means we give specialized and individual service to our customers similar to what pro golfers experience," Bastin said.

Aside from selling clubs off the rack, Golf Etc. offers repair services where Bastin can tweak customers' existing clubs, build custom clubs and also provide private lessons. Bastin said many golfers can become frustrated with the game if they do not have the correct equipment.

"No matter how you swing, you're going to need a club that fits your swing, size, body type and more," Bastin said.

Better Golf Faster takes basic measurements, including height and weight and combines them with the person's swing data, which is practiced on a virtual course. The software recommends certain club types to Bastin, who can make his own adjustments in helping golfers find their perfect fit.

Golf Etc. is owned by Chad and Mandy Beuershausen and opened in February 2012. Bastin said the customer base continues to grow with the help of referrals.
