After more than 20 years as the Master Club Fitter at Marriott Golf Academy at Marriott’s Grande Vista Resort in Orlando, Randy Doucette, who is regarded as one of the country’s premier club fitters, will be performing his final golf club fitting service on October 15th. A highly sought-after club fitting specialist for over 20 years, Randy has worked closely with many accomplished Tour players, such as Nick Faldo, Se Ri Pak, Fred Funk, and Amy Yang, among others. Doucette is returning to Maine where he will be opening his own club-fitting business. During his stint with Marriott Golf Academy, Doucette worked with golfers of all ages and skill levels, including Marriott Resort guests, tourists, elite amateurs, and celebrities and sports stars, such as Justin Timberlake, Anthony Anderson, Tony Siragusa, and Ken Griffey, Jr.
Marriott Golf Academy℠ is consistently recognized by Golf Digest Magazine as one of America’s 100 Best Clubfitters, and will remain a best in class option for golfers of all ages and skill levels. “Randy is widely recognized as one of the most accomplished clubfitters in the golf industry, and while he’s enjoyed a great run at Marriott Golf Academy, we knew he would eventually return to his roots in the northeast to be closer to his family. Custom club fitting will continue to be an integral component to the overall experience at Marriott Golf Academy, and maintaining our Top 100 status will not change with Randy’s departure,” said Andy Mitchell, Director of Golf and Rooms, Marriott’s Grande Vista Resort.
The award-winning facility offers dynamic club fitting sessions designed to assess a golfer’s game, calibrate their static measurements and determine the ideal equipment that will help maximize their performance. Premier services from the Club Fitter’s Workshop™ have become such an important complement to any golf instructional experience at Marriott Golf Academy, and will continue to serve students of all ages and levels.
