Exciting news for Jim Phenicie and WindRose Golf Club!
Jim is relocating back to WindRose Golf Club after a 6 year absence and will again be the Director of Instruction and Custom Club Fitting but Jim also returns a co-owner of the facility.
"Royal Oaks is a phenomal place and I truly enjoyed my time as their instructor and custom fitter. Royal Oaks will continue to set the standard as a leader in the country club industry and as their Director of Instruction, my learning curve was on the rise. But, the lure of ownership was too tempting to pass up and I am returning to WindRose as a business partner in the club. I want to thank all of the Royal Oaks members and especially the staff at the club. They are an incredible team and I am fortunate to have worked for two of the best PGA Professionals in the country in David Altemus and Ryan Polzin. Both of whom I wish the best success. I really look foward to the possibilities this new relationship holds and look forward to seeing all of my students there".
Knowing the value of Jim's custom fitting skills, Titleist is working closely with Jim to relocate his Custom Fitting center to WindRose. Jim has been the Advanced Custom Fitting Center in Houston since its inception in 2008 and this status should return over time. You can continue to use Jim's free and secure online scheduling service for scheduling your next appointment
