Custom Fitting Testimonials


Below are some testimonials from my customers who have been custom fitted by myself.


Thank you Michael for a very professional fitting session for my PXG irons. Anyone reading this if your close to Lytham Golf Academy you should go and get fitted by Michael, he gives a tremendous session explaining anything you need to know. I travelled over 2,5 hours each way and yes it’s a long way but in my opinion well worth every penny, your also treated very well on arrival. If I lived closer I would have lessons off Michael once a week as he explains everything and it’s so easy to understand what your doing wrong. Thank you Michael.

George Sancaster, Newcastle

This is custom fitting done properly and why I travelled 270 miles for it! Many thanks to the excellent Michael Newton at Lytham Golf Academy. Thanks Mike.

Richard Wright, Nottingham


Hi Mike

The Epic driver is terrific, getting a lot more yardage on the course than the numbers suggested which is great! I have suggested you to a few others as well. Best regards, Scott.

Scott Smeaton, Leyland Golf Club



I collected my PXG Irons yesterday as I was in the area traveling back to Teesside from a client visit………all I can say is WOW!!! They look FANTASTIC, the quality of the product manufacturing is clear to see………..very, very impressed!

I’m so pleased I went ahead with this purchase, it was a lot of revenue to pay for a set of clubs but WORTH it……I’ve been to the range and they are performing even better than the fitting.

More than likely I’ll be looking for a fitting for a rescue and possibly 3 our 5 wood!!

Thanks again for your expertise and professional service, Ian.

Ian Forsyth, North East


Hi Mike, would like to thank you for the club fitting. The Callaway Apex irons are spot on and have reduced my handicap down 1.2 shots and now down to 7 in just a few weeks from receiving!!

Dan McCamley, Heysham Golf Club


Mike, had two rounds now, one at Old Links & just finished at West Lancs……….new woods are WOW!

Stuart Priestley, PGA Professional


Mike, just got back from my 1st game with my TaylorMade M1 driver…….absolutely loved it! Can’y wait to see how far I can hit it in the summer. Thanks again for for advice & patience.

Dave Hook, Lytham Green Drive


I would encourage anyone who is in the market for a new set of clubs to give Mike a call, I was lucky enough to catch him for a fitting at Barrow before he left and the service and advice I received was second to none! A genuine guy who is interested in the golfer and the game. Onwards and upwards Mike, best of luck and with your attitude to the game and your clients you can only succeed.

Joe Dorgan, South England


Well Just a quick one for those who have considered Srixon and getting fitted. I travelled two hours today to get fit by Micheal and the experience was nothing other than FANTASTIC. He`s passionate about what he does, not only did he help me find the correct setup which actually felt the best and delivered the strongest ball flight he also helped me iron out a few swing flaws. very minor ones eh Micheal but none the less this has brought my strike quality up another level. If I lived closer I would not hesitate to have lessons from Micheal I`m sure he could reduce my 10 handicap to 5 before the end of next season.POP over to Micheal try the fitting service and look at the Srixon jewels.. Beautiful Cannot wait for my Z565 Z765 combo set to arrive thanks again. Gary.

Gary Smith, Nelson Golf Club


A big thank you to Mike for taking the time with my custom fit today. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything.

Ian Munro, Dunfries Golf Club


Mike is very knowledgeable and experienced in providing a great service. I was very happy with my purchase.

Steve Leigh, Barrow Golf Club


Hi Mike, Just wanted to let you know that I’m really pleased with the new driver. Thanks again for such a thorough job with the fitting.

Ian Scraggs, Silloth Golf Club


Had a great afternoon and got a great deal, this guy really knows his stuff!

Dave Harrison, Wakefield


After a long time away from the game due to illness, I went to see Michael for advice. A few years ago when buying new clubs it was a case of borrowing a few clubs and the ones which felt ‘right’ were the ones which ended up in the bag….not anymore.
The custom fit service for new clubs which Michael offers is fantastic, he was able to spot my weakness using the simulator and after trying lots of variation of shafts, lie angles and grip thickness I had a club in my hand which did what it was designed to do! To gain the experience of a professional at no extra charge is a fantastic service, couple this to a few lessons from him and for the first time in a lot of years I’m striking the ball better, longer and straighter!
Brilliant expertise and service from Michael and his team at BGC, thanks guys.

Ian Tudor, Barrow Golf Club


Thanks Mike, I really enjoyed yesterday’s s driver fitting session, seeing everything on the screen from GC2 & HMT as well as having it explained was very informative and I’m sure will help me.

Peter Cresswell, Barrow Golf Club


One of the most important descisions I’ve made all year!! Srixon Z745 irons purchased! Many thanks Barrow GC Pro Shop – informative & precise in all aspects, not just looking for a sale.

Richard Wright, Nottingham


Great fitting session with Mike this afternoon. He explained my options really well and was very patience with me. Decided to go for the TaylorMade RSi1 irons. Can’t wait for them to come. Thanks very much Mike.

Mike Trelore, Barrow Golf Club


Outstanding results from my fitting with the new Srixon driver. Can’t wait to get my hands the bad boy. Great service provided by a top class coach. Thanks Mike

Darren King, Furness Golf Club


Mike. All I can say is first class service with everything you have done for me from my irons when you first came to Barrow to fairways, rescues, wedges, putters and drivers! That way I won’t go anywhere else. Also taught me a lot about my swing so if anyone asks me about golf I will always send them to you. See you soon for a new big dog! Best in area.

Jono Edwards, Barrow Golf Club


Hi Mike. I took up golf in July last year and besides getting a custom fitted set of TaylorMade clubs off you, I have had individual lessons and bought the Winter Studio Package too. Really enjoyed the practice sessions in The Studio through the winter and felt my game has improved because of it. Looking forward now to the warmer weather to put into practice everything I have been shown. Cheers, Manny.

Manny Boyd, Barrow Golf Club


Really enjoyed my iron fitting for my new TaylorMade irons, very enjoyable and top service!

Adam Dunstan, Barrow Golf Club


Loving the Mizuno’s! Still practicing with the 4 & 5 but getting there. Lot more forgiving than my old clubs with just one ‘duff’ shot in 7 games! Thanks for helping me select Mizuno – probably wouldn’t have been my first choice, but obviously the right one!

Lynda Preston, Dunnerholme Golf Club


Hey Mike, really enjoy the experience with you when custom fitting me with my new Srixon irons & hybrid, it was a true pleasure. No pressure at all and a detailed description of what was best for me, even with a swing like spaghetti in a wind tunnel!! Also patience of a saint whilst teaching my son MacKenzie. Real asset to Barrow Golf Club. Cheers Mike.

Chris Ruston, Furness Golf Club


Anyone looking to be custom fitted have a look at Mike Newton, top guy for all your golfing needs!

Matt Purcell, West Midlands


Thanks Mike for taking time fitting Morgan out with his new Cobra Bio Cell irons, great job and a great price!!

Mike Trelore, Barrow Golf Club


Big thanks to Mike at Barrow Golf Club for supply and custom fitting of my new Srixon Z Series clubs. Great service, thanks!

Nino Falsone, Sheffield


I attended a Customer Fit service session on the 15th February. The whole service from beginning to end was extremely relaxed and enjoyable.At no time were you put under any pressure to actually purchase a particular piece or brand of equipment. At all stages an easily understandable explanation was given of the respective differences between different clubs.The use of the simulator screen was extremely useful in actually showing the differences. I would highly recommend the service to anyone who is considering buying a particular type of equipment. Great in making an informed decision.

Brian Cosgrove, Barrow Golf Club


Top club fitting session on the GC2 simulator at Barrow Golf Club, great bit of kit! Treated myself to a TaylorMade R11S Driver custom fitted to 8.5 degrees and gained 28 yards with a better ball flight and less spin! Also upgraded my 3 wood shaft with an Phenom in stiff flex. Huge thanks to Tom, highly recommended it to any golfer, awesome set-up in The Swing Studio!

Nick Little, Barrow Golf Club


If your thinking of taking up golf or you fancy getting custom fit clubs, pay a visit to Mike Newton at Barrow Golf Club, great set-up!

Mike Leitch, Furness Golf Club


Mike, I just thought I would send a note to thank you for the work you have done with me over the last few months.
I really enjoyed my lessons and more to the point understood and found myself improving and developing with your guidance enhanced with your excellent teaching room / facilities.
I think the combination of video and your new GC2 Simulator is excellent as you can see what to work on in the swing and see the results of every change transferred on the screen to actual ball flight / spins / trajectory / distances ect.
As a result i now know what to keep working on for my desire to improve & no doubt will be back to recap.

I was also impressed with the GC2 Simulator for its other uses. I am now in the possession of a new driver and 3 x Fli Hi irons which I know have the correct shafts for my swing. In addition I have all the carry distances for all my clubs and with you altering all my loft, lie and gapping of my set it has left me knowing it is now down to me as I can’t blame anything but myself if things are not going well.

Thanks for your help.

Andy Slater, Ulverston Golf Club


“I decided to get a custom fit with Mike when i needed some new irons, simply because of his new GC2 launch monitor. I’d heard very good things about how accurate it was. The whole experiance was very good from the start, once we’d identified which irons i was interested in and had found out which shaft suited my swing using the Mizuno shaft flex system, it was just a matter of trying each head with the different shafts and checking the results on the GC2 monitor. It’s an amazing bit of kit and really does show why you should be custom fit. In the end after a good hours fitting i walked away knowing that i had a set of irons that were perfect for me. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone wanting to buy clubs that are fit exclusively to them. I will be using Mike again soon to be custom fit for a driver, simply because i was so impressed with the whole process.”

Paul Towers, Ulverston Golf Club


“Getting fitted up for my New Mizuno mp69’s with Mike was an easy and enjoyable experience, from being fitted up on the Sunday and had my new clubs within 14 days.
Mike’s professional approach and unbelievable fitting technology, leaves you in no doubt that your clubs are perfectly taylor made for you.
Buying clubs from Mike was a no brainer for me, either buy them blind on-line, or try exactly what spec of clubs you want before you make your choice.
Thanks for your professional help and updates regarding my clubs.”

Jon Clarke +1 Handicap, Furness Golf Club


“Michael, I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with my new set of Callaway irons which I purchased from you a few weeks ago. I very much appreciated your custom fitting service and didn’t realise how important this is to help improve my game. In fact my handicap has come down!!

I found your prices very competitive and your customer care impeccable. I was also pleased to receive a follow-up courtesy call from you”.

I have recommended you to many of my golfing friends because I was so impressed with your courteous service. Thank you!

Peter Darwen, Morecambe
