Wilson Golf – The first exclusive Fitting Centre of Wilson Staff in Spain opens at Villa Padierna Golf

December 16, 2020 – This week Wilson Golf is celebrating the opening of its first exclusive Fitting Centre in Spain, which is located in the Villa Padierna Golf Club resort, in Benahavis – Marbella (Malaga). This is a carefully thought-out project, fruit of an agreement by which both the equipment brand and the resort will be strengthened during the next three years.

Villa Padierna is a unique luxury resort in Europe, which has three golf courses: Flamingos Golf, Alferini Golf and Tramores Golf, as well as an exclusive 5-star hotel, the Anantara Villa Padierna Palace.

The resort is located in a natural environment of incomparable beauty next to the Mediterranean Sea, where playing golf is an extraordinary experience, in an exquisite atmosphere, with the most advanced facilities and customized service, where you can enjoy and appreciate every little detail. Establishing a well-known brand like Wilson here further raises the quality of its golf offering.

In the fitting centre, Wilson Golf will offer all its demo equipment for testing and for carrying out fittings, with its wide range of models of drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, irons, wedges and putters, as well as all the options of shafts and clubheads available. In addition, the two professionals who work here, Jimmy Martin and David Gil, have received the brand’s own training to understand its products fully, and have joined the Wilson Advisory Staff.

The facility consists of two rooms, with more than 250 square metres, and a driving range of about 400 metres long by 100 metres wide. Its two teachers, who have already received the title of ‘Master Fitter of Wilson Staff Equipment’, together with Jorge Querol, Wilson Golf sales manager in Southern Spain, will carry out the scheduled fittings using FlightScope technology.

As they have access to the Villa Padierna Golf driving range, golfers will be able to test all Wilson golfclubs in their training sessions, as well as during lessons.

This exciting new relationship between Wilson and Villa Padierna constitutes an integral agreement, which includes the exclusive fitting centre for the brand, and the incorporation of Wilson clothing, balls and gloves in the pro-shop stocks. In addition, the staff will be uniformed by Wilson; and the driving range will have two-piece Wilson golf balls, offering real flight. In this way, players will be able to practice with balls that develop true distance, such as those played on the golf course.
