An Overview

The Professional CLUBMAKERS' Society is a non-profit, international, independent association headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky. As an independent association, the PCS offers a unique and unbiased structure from which its members may learn about the latest in technology.

Founded in 1989, the PCS is owned and governed by its members for its members and is the only independent certifying body for golf club fitting, clubmaking and club repair.

PCS members gain valuable knowledge from the bi-monthly PCS Journal, which contains clubmaking tips, marketing suggestions, member exchanges, research reports and a special pull out section containing articles and information about the latest in component equipment and supplies.

Each year the PCS sponsors the International Symposium and Expo which features seminars, approved by the PGA and LPGA, on various clubmaking topics, a hitting area for hands on testing of equipment, and workshops which include hands on demonstrations in the areas of club fitting, clubmaking and club repair. Virtually the entire component industry gathers under one roof to exhibit products providing the perfect environment for acquiring detailed information on all facets of the clubmaking industry.

Perhaps the most valuable service offered by the PCS is its Certification Program which indicates that the clubmaker has met the highest standard of academic proficiency, applied technology and excellence in craftsmanship in the areas of clubmaking, club fitting and club repair.

The PCS recognizes the diversity of clubmakers and the varying stages of their professional development. Whether you are a clubmaker with advanced skills or are just starting out, there is a place for you with the Professional CLUBMAKERS' Society.
