Woods To Wedges

Williamsville NY


Woods to Wedges has been helping WNY golfers improve their game for more than 40 years. Owner Donna Henrich’s family started Woods to Wedges in 1974 as a retail store in Clarence, specializing in custom-made clubs and club repair. In 1994 they expanded and moved into the Wehrle Golf Dome, combining with Golf Headquarters to offer the most extensive retail facility, club repair and fitting center in the area. In 2014, Woods to Wedges added a state-of-the-art club-fitting studio where they fit golfers of every level, utilizing the Trackman for woods and irons, and the Sam Putt Lab for putter fittings. Our location in the Golf Dome let’s you IMMEDIATELY begin practicing with your custom-fit clubs in the indoor driving range.
