GOLFTEC Named to Prestigious Inc. 5000 List for Eighth Year

(Englewood, Colo) – GOLFTEC – the world leader in golf lessons, and top employer of PGA Professionals – has been named to the 2017 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, an honor the company has received for five consecutive years and eight times over the last decade. Only one percent of all companies to make the list have been featured as often.

GOLFTEC has experienced unrivaled category growth over the past two decades, including a 98% increase in revenue since 2010. In 2017, the company has opened more than 30 new locations, unveiled a new logo and in-center design and expects to teach nearly 1 million lessons. The largest driver of new business comes from referrals by current customers who have undergone the company’s pioneering programs that have led to a 96 percent success rate among GOLFTEC students.

“Receiving this honor for the first time was incredible, but being included for eight years is a testament to our coaches and staff who work tirelessly to help all golfers improve, and in turn, grow the business,” said Joe Assell, Co-Founder and CEO of GOLFTEC. “Our world-renowned approach to instruction and club-fitting has revolutionized the way that golfers learn and improve, and we’re excited to continue to expand our impact around the world.”

In addition to this award from Inc. Magazine, GOLFTEC was also recently named among the “Most Innovative Companies in Sports” by FAST Company, due to industry-leading initiatives such as the SwingTRU Motion Study™️.

Each GOLFTEC student undergoes a Swing Evaluation to assess their skill, followed by a certified personal coach recommending a specific game plan, which includes fundamental elements like course strategy and a TECfit® club fitting session. While the majority of lessons are taught indoors in private bays, coaches also accompany players for on-course/outdoor lessons to ensure they are comfortable in real world situations.

The renowned, global GOLFTEC coaching team is comprised of experienced professionals, most of whom are PGA professionals and have taught thousands of lessons. Each goes through a rigorous multi-week certification at GOLFTEC University including continued advanced training to master the analysis of golf swing mechanics, the technology utilized by GOLFTEC and the most productive teaching techniques. Committed to strengthening the industry and hiring only the best staff, GOLFTEC is the largest employer of PGA Professionals in the world.
