Looking for a good place in the Des Moines area to get fit for a new set of irons. Have not purchased a club since moving from Denver. Any positive or negative stories would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I prefer Golf Headquarters, as far as the retail stores go. Though the salesmen are hit and miss there (some very good, some clueless). There really aren't a lot of options. Just to shop around, I'd also go to Kinley's and Golf Galaxy.

I'd also check with the pros at Legacy Golf Club. I have no direct experience, but their website shows they do private club fittings. That's almost certainly outdoors and would be far better than in a shop.

If you want a top of the line club fitting experience, go to Minneapolis (Totally Driven, 2nd Swing).

I would not get fit at a golf store in DM. Stay away from the big box stores here for fittings and repair.

If you need repairs, go to Kinley's, need fitted, go to a Pro.

I know Curt and Kevin at Otter Creek in Ankeny, would get fit by either one. My brother works there, he is a certified Titleist fitter.

Kinleys does good club work. Have been through a fitting session at legacy. It was pretty good. If you watch their website closely they will have promos where if you get fitted and purchase that day you will get a 10% deal.

I drove down there this past weekend from Ames based off a glowing recommendation from my brother in law, and it was definitely a miss with the guy that "helped" me. He didn't even know they were hosting a huge demo day on April 18 at the Des Moines Driving range with all the big OEMs on site. That was just one of the issues. I was quite disappointed.

Just an update. Stopped by golf headquarters last thursday as I was coming home from taking my dog to the vet to see I what iron lines the carried. I had no intentions of buying anything because I was planning on going to Legacy in Norwalk based on recommendations for a fitting. I was helped by Craig and was very comfortable with him from the get go. I hit several models in the simulator (gc2) and liked the look and feel of the ping i25's the best. I went back the next morning for a fitting. 1 hour and 10 shafts later I purchased the 5-uw, blue dot with kbs tour stiff shafts. Craig mentioned the demo day in April if I wanted to wait to hit them off grass but I had previously played them as a rental set and was comfortable with the turf interaction. Also I will be leaving for Florida the day of the demo.

Awesome! Craig is the one my bil mentioned, but I don't think he was there on Saturday; probably out hitting the links on that beautiful day. Next time I will call ahead if I can't find what I need at the demo day. I've never been to one before, so Im pretty stoked.
