Golftec — a provider of golf lessons and premium club fittings — has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest growing companies for the ninth time since the list’s inception in 2007.

Bolstered by the proven success of its approach to golf instruction and club fitting, Golftec has experienced extensive growth over the last 12 months. This includes the opening of nine instruction centers around the world, as well as the company’s first facility on mainland China.

2018 saw Golftec give over 1 million lessons. In addition, 36 Golftec centers were named to Golf Digest’s list of the ‘100 Best Club Fitters in America’ and more than 20 Golftec coaches received local and national recognition for their work with students.

Lessons are taught utilizing the most innovative technology in the world, including advanced motion measurement, video analysis and premium launch monitors. The company’s enhanced custom club fitting program provides a tour-like fitting experience combining swing characteristics with ball flight data to identify the optimal golf equipment for each student. This approach has led to Golftec students shedding an average of seven strokes from their game.

“Our entire team has worked tirelessly with the goal of expanding our reach and sharing the benefit of the Golftec approach to improvement with an ever growing audience of golfers,” said Joe Assell, co-founder and CEO of Golftec. “We look forward to continuing to push the boundaries of innovation in our quest to help all golfers play better and find more enjoyment on the course.”
