Completed the club fitting process with Ricky. I have to say that it was one of the most enjoyable things that I every have done in golf. The input that I received from Ricky and the time that he spent with me made the club selection process simple. Thank you once again
Thank you for your help. At this point I feel very comfortable with my new swing.
I hope to have more playing time this year.
what a great day I had with a full bag fitting with Ryan! He was patient,knowledgeable and helped with my problem areas of my swing! No pressure to buy or use a certain club. We worked together for two hours to get the perfect set of clubs for my abilities and swing speed. I can't wait to receive the clubs and get out on the course to try them out! I highly recommend Sittler golf and Ryan for your club fitting!
I was looking to purchase a new set of irons and scheduled a fitting with Ricky. He was very engaged and had a ton of knowledge about which irons would be a fit for me. I was so pleased with the level of service that I not only purchased the irons but purchased a new ping hoofer bag and taylormade syper tour putter here. This is where i will buy all my golf merchandise moving forward.
Thank you so very much for fitting me for a new driver and 3 wood. I know how valuable your time is and I really appreciate your taking the time out of your busy schedule. I had a blast during the clubfitting and I learned a lot during the process. As Always, you and your staff not to mention your facility are second-to-none!
I cannot wait to hit the links with the new clubs!
It was a pleasure to meet with you yesterday and get your advice. Thank you so much for your professionalism and courtesy. You could have pushed something on me but you were very honest and professional and I thank you for that. I will definitely tell my friends about Sittler Golf and I will be back.
Thank you very much,
I just want to say how much I appreciate Rick helping me out with my swing. As a newbie, I had no form and was getting advice from everyone and nothing made sense until I had a lesson with Rick. He even checked on me one day in between his lessons just to tweak my swing. I can't thank you enough. I left Sittler's on Sunday and went home and immediately took my Driver and Pitch Wedge and walked onto the golf course with 3 balls and hit all 3 balls within chipping distance to the green. I think I'm really going to enjoy this game thanks to Rick.
I've been going to Sittler's for 20 years. Rick and his staff have always treated me like a Tour Player even though I'm far from it. Rick's instructions and technical advice are easy to understand and have helped me tremendously over the years. I've also purchased many sets of clubs and equipment from Sittler's over the years and their fitting services are second to none and their pricing is outstanding. These folks are first class and I know your game will improve if you visit. I know mine has. Thank you for keeping things fun!
I was one of the amputees there today. Rick drove me to the place where we hit the balls as I couldn’t walk that far. [I had a red van parked on the grass] Just wanted to say thank you for all the help, and instructions. That was my 1st time ever near a golf range.
Again, thank you for giving me the chance to get out today.
Always a wonderful experience, friendly, great customer relations, knowledgeable staff. Very well stocked inventory and willing to always go the extra mile for you.
Congrats! I totally agree with that. My new clubs are amazing and I'm already seeing much improvement. Just want to say thank you so much for the fitting again! Hope to see you soon.-Nick
Hello Sittlers, first I want to thank Rick for a great club fitting session last night. I feel he was very thorough and excited to get the new clubs. Secondly, I want to yell at Rick (just kidding) because I can hardly move this morning---he worked me hard last night. It’s all good---just want to let y’all know I appreciate your time and attention.
I wanted to write to thank you for your time, patience, professionalism and outstanding customer service.
Rick, I played in Fla last week and the new clubs were fantastic. The tips you gave me were also invaluable. Will be making appointment for more lessons as soon as it gets warmer. Thanks again.Al Carrigan.

The lesson made a big difference. I thought I would never be able to swing well befor the lesson. After Rick watched me swing, he saw where I was going wrong. I know now that I was trying so hard to keep my left arm straigh that I was not turning my hips back at the same time as my arms were swinging back. I had always thought that the hips should stay still until the end of the golf swing. Now that I know the correct method, I will practice it. I will come back after I think I have accomplished that.
YES, I had a very good experience with the lesson! Thanks, your tips were VERY helpful.
Just as I was leaving the lesson Saturday afternoon, my friend called, and we met over at Rich Maiden.
I hit the ball just great. Nice solid contact, with a nice high draw shape.
I kept calm the hole round, ended +3. One double, a few bogies, two birdies and an ACE! My first one, I bounced an easy 9 iron in from 128!
Wow, when I said I felt I was close to improving a lot, I didn't think I would have a hole in one and my best round ever a few hours later!
Really, seeing the face tape and how much variation in contact I was making, along with you recognizing that I was breaking a little in the back made me face the fact that I need to concentrate more, hit more squarely. Firming up my left hand a bit with the thumb more steady on the club. Tempo and follow through are huge.
I guess I sort of felt I was hitting it a few millimeters from square, not an inch! I can do better than that!
Also played two rounds Sunday at Hickory Valley, had low drama 89 and 91. Definitely striking the ball much more squarely, solidly.
I sprayed a handful of long shots, duffed a few chips or I easily could have been lower 80's.
I'll practice it in a bit more and come see you again,
A million thanks go out to you, Rick, Kasey, and the “soda/popcorn” ladies for a great afternoon. Everybody had an enjoyable time and they’re looking forward to next year. I will spread the word at AP that a Sittler’s Golf Outing is a great team building exercise!
See you again soon,
regarding my lesson, Rick is always very professional, friendly and positive. always helps. just wish i could take him with me for a round to give a first hand report. i will certainly show up again. hopefully not needed too soon. Thanks, Fred
After much practicing, I finally hit the links today (Iron Lakes). WOW, my drives, woods, irons and short game were greatly improved. They were STRAIGHT, high and far. I will have to get used to the shots going so high and I might have to go to a longer Iron to get the correct distance. My putting is a story for another day.
its Eddie Gilbert i saw you on Monday .wanna thank you for fitting me early. and for taking so much time ...it paid off played on tuesday i love it the feel the look ...drove the ball beautifully , even had one marked at 307yd. it was well worth the drive.
Truly enjoyed professional lesson, will continue practice exercises, can not wait to get back on the course. I feel now if I can master the changes Rick has shown me, I will finally be able to hit it straighter (and maybe farther) but I'll be happy with consistently straight( 5 out of 5 on that "mound.")
great lesson, very informative and to the point
just select clubs to select something. Ricky gave me a few
swing tips , which worked well in my afternoon round.
Looking forward to picking up my new clubs, Thanks again.
I really enjoyed every visit.
Please let Rick know he is a golf swing genius! Hit an entire bucket of balls and they were all near perfect! Thank you!=
Absolutely outstanding lesson - within minutes my swing flaw was diagnosed and fixed. Thanks so much for making this a wonderful golf season.
PATTY PLEASE TELL RICK MY SCORES HAVE LOWERED SO MUCH SINCE MY NEW CLUBS.
MY HANDICAP WILL BE DOWN TO A 3 .....I BELIEVE WITH THE NEXT UPDATE..
Thanks to all at Sittler for your help today. Rick and Kenny were both great. My wife (who is not a golfer) and I both felt like we were treated as old friends on our first visit. I really appreciate Kenny's help with my wedges -- lots of good insight into what I need to do. I'll definitely be back for help on my fairway wood and driver.
Thanks again !Brent Myers
Rick: Thanks so much for the 2nd lesson. You showed me the proper form on the Golf swing ( today Iam sore ) but it was worth it. I will be using the new infomation in the furture and will be make my next lesson for mid summer, Have to practice my new swing. I see why you are one of the best in the Country.Thanks
Thanks again for everything.
Even though you are an hour and a half away you have now
become my golf headquarters. The service you provide is
I cannot say enough positive things about Sittler. Staff was friendly, helpful and all done with a smile. The lesson was superb; well articulated with just enough to do but not an overload of information nor gimmicks. Rick is a gifted instructor; again, friendly, engaging and yet professional. I left feeling great about the lesson as well as the established goals. And even though I felt good after purchasing my clubs at Sittler's about two years ago, I felt even better about my experience today. I will highly recommend Sittler's to my patients and colleagues.

Thanks for the continued hard work and effort. You have definitely gone above and beyond on my behalf. Your experience and professionalism has allowed me to have a set of sticks that consistently perform at a high level. This has been by far the best fitting experience I have had to date.
The whole process has convinced me that without the correct fitting you will not be able to perform at your highest potential. This is whether you are an aspiring tournament player or a casual golfer.
I look forward to being a continued customer for years to come.
Your hard work does not go unnoticed.

You are doing a first class job with your Golf Academy. I truly appreciate the time you spent with me during my driver appointment. The Ping 3 wood worked great on my golf vacation. I will be contacting you in the near future for a future session when I am back in Allentown.
by the way, you guys
run a class act at
Sittlergolf, Mark was excellent as was the rest of the staff---------
Thanks for fitting me on Friday for the K-15 Ping irons. I really appreciate the swing tip you gave me. (I was the guy making ball contact by the hosel). You did a great job and thansk again for helping a struggling weekend golfer.
Hi everyone at Sittler's 6/19/2011
I want to thank Kenny and the rest of the gentlemen for your courtesy and time spent trying to create the clubs needed for my height, swing, and ability as a novice golfer (even after 6 years)!
After many, many lessons over these years I was able to hit the ball better but the contact with the irons, especially, has started getting worse due to some arthritis in the hands and ill-fitting cut-down clubs.
Kenny was so patient with me and knew what my problems were - my clubs were almost 2 inches too short and the lie was off a few degrees. I can't wait to receive the new custom-fitted clubs, especially the hybrids and the huge Calloway Diablo driver!! I still have a paid lesson with Brad at Whitetail in Bath and he wants to go over all the new clubs at that time. It was his suggestion that I go to you to be fitted properly. He knows that I love the game but was getting more and more frustrated with my results.
Thank you all again -
Hope to see you soon when the clubs are in, Nancy S.
Rick / Patty
Just wanted to say thanks for the GREAT service I enjoyed at the demo day yesterday. Every single member of your team could not have been more friendly and helpful; I was truly impressed. When I was ready for my fitting and still couldn't decide between brands Rick was decent enough to allow me to keep hitting when really I should have made my mind up. Being given this extra time when I know you were busy allowed me to make my choice in confidence. At no point did I feel rushed.
I'm looking forward to getting my AP1's and lowering my score!
Thank you very much for the fitting. Buying new clubs is a serious and expensive decision. Having Ken as a guide, I was able to buy a new set of irons that I am confident are the best for me. Please forward my thanks to Ken. He and the rest of the staff are outstanding. Ron B., Wind Gap
Hi Patty 4/13/2011
I wanted to take this moment to compliment Kenny Hugo's personalized guidance in fitting me for my first (and maybe last??) set of clubs at your shop yesterday. I was a "drop-in" client yesterday, on a rainy day. For years, wanted to be custom fitted for "my personalized set of sticks". Ken demonstrated patience, keen observations, presented to me continuous golf balls and clubs, all the while conveying the magical words "what feels good?", while monitoring ball flight from the various manufacturers' clubs. He exhibits knowledge of each manufacturer, and even offered that possibly my "draw-to-"hook" was a result of using standard length clubs (forever!), and indicated I compensate at impact with rotating my wrists! Makes sense..
I look forward to the day "my" set arrives. There's no "rush" - let the system work, and you will call me when they arrive. After all, we're not "exactly" enjoying golfing weather this week!
Thanks! - Sittler Golf Center has exceeded my expectations during this fitting experience!

I can not thank you enough for the experience of having lesson sessions which taught me more then I have learned with three previous Teachers of the game of golf. The 3 lesson package was worth every cent. I really think it was the way it was presented, with what I needed to work on each lesson, to ingrain in me a new swing thought to offset my old mechanics, which were brought on by many good intentioned people and books etc. I just want to say, keep up the good work.Thanks Ted N.
Rick was fantastic - extremely knowledgeable and helpful!Plus really nice guy! Sittler's is truly a hidden treasure for allthings golf in this area!
thanks again also to Rick! He is by far the best teaching pro in thearea! Really gets to know his customers to understand specificequipment needs without high pressure selling.Really appreciate his help as well as the entire Sittler staff!Bill Sellers
Hello. Good Evening. My name is Howie
and I reside in Mahanoy, PA (Schuylkill County) some 50 miles for
the Kutztown Area. I just wanted to take this opportunity to pass
along some comments regarding Sittler Golf Center, as I recognize
the importance in running and maintaining a successful bussiness.
Within the last few weeks, I made several purchases at your shop,
all to my extreme satisfaction. I'm a mid to high 70's shooter,
however I enjoy the process of keeping up with latest available golf
technology and equipment. I usually upgrade most of my equipment
each Spring with the latest available models and have discovered
that your shop is very much "on the right track" so to speak. In
some 23+ years in my golfing past, I usually would travel to all
different types of shops in the early season, basically all over
northeastern PA in search of what I wanted to buy.
From my observations--you all WERE the FIRST to carry the new PROV1s, the ONLY place that could QUICKLY find me a kit of older rare-model Winn grips I use, the ONLY place that carried in stock the new Titleist 907D1 Driver with my exact preferred specs (which you also regripped overnight), as well as a Footjoy rainsuit I had not seen anywhere but on the internet..
Additionally, last year I scheduled an equipment analysis with one of your staff members which also was excellently conducted. If you all are not aware, this type of service is basically "unheard of" up in my area. And it was certainly well worth the travel down there for it.
Keep up the great work! You've succeeded in providing me with the equipment I needed for my first few rounds of 2007. I'm sure this is what you strive for...so you have earned a new regular customer. Thanks Again!!
I attended your demo day and had a great time. It's not often that us lefties get the chance to hit clubs like that.
I think. .hopefully i have the right names.. Ricky and Zack took great care of me once i was ready to purchase a club. It was definitely a positive experience. Those guys were having fun while helping people with their purchases. I did buy that 3 wood that i was looking for from your shop and am looking forward to my new clubs arrival.
That new super quad that i hit from taylor made was pretty sweet and when the deal is right i think i might jump!!
I know that sometimes people only send the negative messages and wanted you to know the flip side. Thanks Rick.
I'm writing this letter to tell you about the great experience I had
choosing new clubs (irons) at your shop. As much as I wanted to get
fit for new irons, I had several concerns about the process. Where
should I go, will I get to try all the l cubs that I want to, will
the pro/fitter listen to what I want? After seeing Sittler's
endorsements from several top club manufacturers I made an
appointment for comprehensive custom iron fitting.
My pro/fitter was Mark Csencsits. Mark helped me select new clubs with the perfect mix of listening and professional input. I was able to try various brands, some I already had in mind and some I hadn't thought about. We methodically worked it down to the clubs I liked best and then got fitted.
It was great having a knowledgeable pro help me choose with confidence. I feel sure that I am getting the best clubs that I can get for me, as he not only told me what clubs fit my swing but also why.
In summary, my fitting was educational, rewarding and fun! The entire staff at Sittler's was courteous and helpful. Thank you very much, I can't wait to hit the course!
Sincerely, David E
