Don Irving is regarded as the “golf guru” among Professional ClubFitters around the globe. He has honed his skills through extensive training and education coupled with years of experience. He has taught and mentored many of the World’s Top ClubFitters sharing his knowledge with others. No surprise that he has been named as one of the World’s Top 100 Clubfitters from 2006-2020.
Soft spoken and extremely patient, Don takes whatever time is necessary to fit his golfers into the perfect combination of head and shaft. And to do that, he really gets to know you, your game and your goals. During the fitting process he takes the time to explain each step which golfers truly enjoy.
Don was the first certified Trackman expert in Canada and is able to analyze every aspect of the swing. He will select several heads and shafts and will have you test a series of demo clubs before selecting the ideal combination for your unique swing. You will then be able to test and compare the recommended custom club combination against your current bag viewing the results on Trackman. Not only will you see an improvement in distance, but more importantly you will see a much tighter dispersion on your shots.
Equal in importance to the fitting is the actual building of the custom clubs. Don is a true perfectionist, insisting on handcrafting each club to assure the precise specifications are met.
Artisan Golf attracts tournament players, junior champions and golfers of every skill level from around the world. Golfers from Australia, England, Indonesia, Bangladesh, the United States and many other countries have visited Artisan golf. They have learned of Don’s outstanding reputation and have taken advantage of their visit to Ottawa to benefit from his services.
Don is a Founding Member and former President of IPAC, the prestigious association of the finest fitters in the world. He is so well respected by KZG that his ideas and recommendations have resulted in the creation of new equipment launched by KZG including the low spin driver with low boring trajectory for his “players” resulting in the creation of the VC 420 Driver.

“I am a Senior who has been playing golf for 7 years. The KZG clubs which Don made for me have certainly improved my score, and, more importantly, my enjoyment of the game. The irons felt comfortable from day one-the hybrids respond nicely in situations where greater distance is required. I have no doubt, from a value point of view, the combination of Don’s expertise, and continued support, have served me much better than spending with a golf club mass producer. Don’s design of equipment to fit my swing, has been greatly beneficial. It is also great that Don is always available for consultation, minor adjustments, re-gripping, etc. I will highly recommend Don to my friends.” -Gord L. Nepean
“I consider this little tale a sign from the Golf Gods. After playing for 8 years (and becoming obsessed with the game) it was time for new clubs. Don fitted me for a full new set and made up a driver, 7 wood and 7 iron for me to try out before he put the whole set together. I went to Upper Canada with my new weaponry to see what I could do with it. All three clubs felt fantastic in my hands – I was getting more distance, more accuracy… and then I stepped up onto the tee box at the par 3 15th hole. I figured with the wind and the pin placement I was looking at about 110 yards. Normally, that would require my 6 iron but I decided to give that new 7 iron a try. Sweet, sweet shot… straight at the pin… cleared the sand trap in front of the green and went out of sight. I knew it was a good shot and as I walked up to the green I was sure I’d find it sitting pretty within about 6 feet of the hole. I looked around – no ball. I started wandering around in the rough looking for it, when my playing partner said “Did you check the hole?” Sure enough, my pretty pink ball was sitting in the cup! I don’t know if Don can consistently claim he makes “hole-in-one” clubs but he literally did for me. My forged irons, Q woods and PTI driver are the best investment I’ve ever made in my golf game. I would highly recommend a visit to Don to anyone who’s serious about improving their game.” – S.B. Ottawa
