Ted & Dave Custom Golf opened their doors on April 6, 1996 in an industrial strip mall in SE Calgary. Their model started as a “component” club fitting business where most of the sales they did were built in-house. Some of the product lines were Accuform, Zevo, Orlimar, Prosimmon, KZG, and Bang. As they became known for their quality and attention to detail, Ted and Dave’s became Zevo’s Canadian product build facility.
On February 1, 2003, Ted and Dave moved their business to the RCGA, now known as GolfutureYYC. Following the move the business model started to change. McGregor Golf appraoched them to sell their product line. This would be their first Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) which was followed closely by Ping. As the business and custom fitting grew, more OEM’s noticed the great relationship and how their customers were being taken care of. Today, Ted & Dave’s offers clubs from Ping, Titleist, Callaway, Taylormade, Mizuno, Miura, Scotty Cameron, Odyssey, and More.
On October 12, 2012, Robert Penner joined Ted & Dave’s small family. Robert first met Ted & Dave when he was a customer in 1998 and soon started to mentor under them. Having a mechanical background, Robert was interested in learning as much as he could about the golf swing and how properly fit clubs can affect a person’s game.
On January 1, 2017, Ted and Linda Webster retired after almost 21 years in the golf industry. Ted & Dave Custom Golf has been passed on to Robert Penner. Robert will work hard to carry on the legacy of customer service and unrivaled product knowledge for which Ted & Dave’s has become known for.
