True Spec Chicago North Shore opens at Golf Practice

CHICAGO, IL (October 11, 2022) – True Spec Golf, the global leader in custom club fitting and construction, today announced its partnership with Golf practice, one of the best golf academies in Chicago. The new larger location for True Spec Chicago North Shorelocated less than half a mile from the previous location, was needed to meet the high demand in the area.

This venture is the latest in a series of partnerships that bring True Spec’s bespoke equipment and best-in-class customer service to premier locations across the country.

Premium setup features two interior mounting bays equipped with industry-leading Foresight GCQuad technology and utilizes True Spec’s brand-independent mounting matrix of over 50,000 club head and shaft combinations from all major manufacturers of equipment. This helps its master fitters find the best gear to enhance a player’s game. Each club will be custom built at True Spec’s Scottsdale headquarters to exact specifications derived from the fitting process.

“True Spec is truly thrilled to team up with the talented and dedicated staff at The Golf Practice,” said Ryan Richardson, President of True Spec Golf. “The commitment to their students is exemplary, which perfectly complements what we have to offer.”
