Universal Golf was started by Tom Webster, a club fitter highly regarded within Hampshire and across the south coast of the UK. Universal was started with one thought in mind, “Don’t alter your swing to suit the golf club, make sure the club is fitted to suit your swing “. Too many club fitters try to change the swing of a golfer to suit the club this is not the way we go about our business.
Tom has over 7 years of experience working in the golf industry. Tom initially started out working at local golf shops. He then went on to work for Taylormade Golf with the tour department and also conducting demo days all over the UK.
Universal Golf’s first studio was at Meon Valley Golf Club. Tucked away near Wickham in Hampshire this studio gave Tom a great opportunity to grow his knowledge of club fitting along with the business while meeting some great customers along the way.
As the customer base and demand grew Tom knew he needed to move to a facility that could both enhance the customers fitting experience as well as handling more throughput.
In 2018 Universal Golf moved to a superb golf practise facility, Hedge End Golf Centre. The new state of the art studio is built on a 50 bay two-tier driving range that offers a great view whenever you’re teeing it up. Moving to this location also meant that Universal had a purpose-built separate workshop meaning Tom could enhance the customer building process as well as the repair services. The location of Hedge End Golf centre is perfect just off junction 7 of the M27 meaning easy access from Southampton and Portsmouth as well as from the M3.
