Close House near Newcastle has announced the installation of a state of the art Mizuno Performance Fitting Centre at its Academy and Driving Range.

This new centre will feature Mizuno’s premium swing DNA facilities, an outdoor fitting suite with launch monitor technology and a full Mizuno Fitting Cart, as well as extended wood and wedge fitting packs.


Close House becomes only the ninth location in the UK to install a Mizuno Centre of this type, joining the likes of Royal Birkdale, Woburn, Celtic Manor and Killeen Castle. 

Mizuno’s fitting methodology relies heavily on their successful Shaft Optimiser and Swing DNA system which has been available at local golf club level since its introduction in 2009.

John Glendinning, General Manager of Close House, said: “The addition of the Mizuno Performance Fitting Centre will enhance our existing academy setup, enabling us to offer custom club fitting to both members and visitors to Close House.

“We are excited about the formation of this new partnership with Mizuno and have every confidence in their ability to provide high quality custom fitting in order to help golfers improve their standard of play.”

Fittings are available free of charge and custom fit equipment can be replaced or exchanged with no-quibble up to eights weeks after initial purchase, meaning you can rest assured that you have complete piece of mind when getting fitted for Mizuno gear.

To book a fitting at the new Mizuno Performance Fitting Centre, contact Close House on +44 (0)1661 852255.
