  1. Has anyone visited the Oceanside/Carlsbad mother ship of TPI? Considering a half day fitting.

    If yes, can you describe your experience? I’m considering a trip from Green Bay in January 2022.

    Also: Would new irons be available to be fitted?

    Unreal conditions - the turf and bunker care are always excellent. Your fitter will treat you as if you were Adam Scott or Jordan Speith. They have all the tools to fit like no one else can. You also get a tour and if lucky you can watch them testing prototype balls. Or add a TPI physical exam to see if they can send you hone with exercises tailored to you.
    Some days in January may be hard to schedule. There may pro golfers getting a tuneup or equipment change for the Farmer’s Tournament.
    The new irons should be in place by September. Going to TPI after the traditional PGA Convention may have the “SM-9” wedges or whatever the successor to the SM8 will named.
  3. Don: Thanks for your input, much appreciated. I may plan a visit in OCT as our season concludes in WI. Hoping the new irons are available.

    I see you’re from Madison! I’ll be at Blackhawk CC for Sr US Amateur qualifying in August and SR WI Open in September.

    Again, thank you for your valuable input.

    Blackhawk is almost my backyard. Surprised both events are at the same course. I limit myself to Senior Tour events, as I don’t have to break par to shot my age. Won’t be at your events. Will be close to your home commuting to The Straits to work the Ryder Cup.

    I mentioned the white glove treatment. I really should mentioned the quality of the staff in assessing one’s swing and making suggestions. Having the tools and the ideal outdoor location, they are focused on the best equipment options for you. They don’t offer preconceived notions of what you should have. It is born out in the results or what one does to override their recommendation. But no sense to go there if one knows what they want.

    As an older golfer, stores will steer me to the one LH senior set in the corner. I’ve never felt that kind of disrespect at TPI.

    They will likely have every shaft in the catalog available but if one wants a less common choice available, you can request that when setting the appointment. Same with a local fitter as Titleist reps can arrange shafts to be loaned for a fitting.
  5. I am going next year. I like my current TM driver but it’s a 2015 model so about time to upgrade. Good time to go Titleist with the driver and 3 wood. Will also try the new irons. Got the T200s last year but may as well try the new models.

    It is something I'd like to do in 2022 too.

    Looking forward to hearing more from other TT members who have had the opportunity to visit TPI Oceanside.

    TPI is a must! Turf, outdoors, Trackman and Pro V1/X's. The staff really makes you feel welcome and you might just run into a Tour pro or Bob Vokey!

    Did a driver and iron fitting and its easily best in the industry. Not only are the facilities top-notch but the fitters are $$$$ and really help you with your clubs/game.

    Its def worth it
  9. If you are getting fit for irons, are you only hitting the 7 iron like a typical fitting or do they have some other irons in the set? Would be great to hit wedge, 7 iron, 4 iron while trying different shafts, etc. I suspect you have to have your name on your bag to be able to do that.

    But curious if that is an option at TPI.

    The removable heads only come in 7 iron. They do have a lot more shaft options to test at TPI. They also have some full sets with stock shafts so you can get a feel for swinging different clubs within a set. Bags full of every loft and grind of Vokey wedges. Great people who will dial your swing in and believe me, they treat everyone like they have their name on their bag. Amazing experience.

    Dale is right on!!!
    There is no other consumer golf experience in the world that comes close to TPI.
    Top quality people and product = tour quality experience for every consumer.
    If you get the chance it's a must do bucket list destination and experience....PURE!!!!

    Cheers,

    Jaw dropping experience. I was just there yesterday, we got fitted for the need T series irons. Met Don and Todd. I already had the idea that the place was awesome and the facility still exceeded my expectations. My fitter Glen was very knowledgeable. He will work with you and make the best suggestion. Pretty sure all the other fitters are the same.
    I had a great time and look forward for my next visit. I'm sure you will have good experience.
  15. Thanks for the info. Do you place your order at TPI and have them ship the clubs, or do you take the specs with you and order them at your local shop?
  16. With my visit to TPI scheduled for October 4th, I'll probably place on site.

    You have the choice to order online (recent feature from Titleist) or use your local dealer. I use a pro shop and as a favored customer get a little better discount than the online price. Plus piece of mind - any problems, I can drop in face to face. My nearest Premier fitter is an hour drive, so they drop ship them to my home directly from Titleist.

    TPI and Manchester Lane don’t transact orders directly.

    Now hoping my T300’s arrive on or before the official release date.
