Pursue the quest
pursue the quest. rick demane leverages five decades of experience, along with data from the GCQuad and flightscope x3, to refine the journey for passionate golfers.
The pursuit of golf Nirvana is a lifelong journey filled with all kinds of surprises, but one constant is Rick DeMane’s steadfast, capable, and earnest companionship along the way. Golf is in the DwMane family D.N.A., and Rick embodies its spirit in unique ways, offering thoughtful insights, and a passion for identifying, and conquering, the myriad challenges facing golfers in their quests. Rick’s mastery of the nuances, and countless intricacies associated with the golf club and putter, are the stuff of legend. Rick personally handles your gear, keeps it simple, has zero pretense, and reinvests in the very best technology money can buy. The DeMane tradition of excellence lives on in Rick.
Just like his father Jack, and grandfather Nick, Rick digs deep into the nitty gritty leaving no stone unturned in delivering outstanding service and value. While out club fitters utilize great launch monitoring systems, Rick uses two! He believes relying on any one system might rob himself, and ultimately his customers, of the very best data, so he uses a dual-system launch monitor set-up. This one-two tech punch offer DeMane Golf customers the penultimate fitting experience.
Rick’s fitting room is a workshop, not a living room. He doesn’t serve cappuccino, or have a couch in there. What you will find is a no bull working environment where the walls are lined with countless shafts, club heads, putters, and history. You’ll find a new mat with Titleist Pro-V1s with tiny image-sensing decals personally adhered to every one of them by the owner. You’ll notice his workbench, one of many at DeMane Golf, with two monitors, club wrenches of all kinds, manufacturers’ spec books on shelves and scattered about, all to make the best of the data he collects from every swing on his Foresight GCQuad, and Flightscope X3 launch monitors.
Rick’s fitting room is like his second office. It’s where he gets your work done.
Let’s get down to brass tacks
the sistine chapel of golf in suburbia
DeMane Golf is an 80-year-old family business located on 35 Chapel Street, in Greenwich, Connecticut. It comprises several small buildings on the DeMane family home’s unpretentious and welcoming property. Here customers will find Rene (pronounced reˈnei) DeMane’s horticultural treasures propped up by old shaft pulls, two cats named Peanut and Poke, and a putting green bracketed by a trio of rooms housing a treasure trove of golf clubs, putters, balls, repair equipment, fitting technologies, manufacturer ‘systems’, and 80 years of other golfdom. It is, to some, a Mecca... for golf.
If you want it, DeMane Golf has got it.
The shop at DeMane Golf is a candy store for the real golfer. There are no crafted beers or cappuccino… just XXX hardcore golf porn! So, if you’re looking for a brand new, solid wood, handmade straddle putter with a leather grip… DeMane Golf’s got it. If you’re looking for a $32 dozen of Pro Vis, DeMane Golf’s got it. If you’re looking for a custom-built set of Titleist C16 irons, with Grand Bassara shafts, Rick DeMane will make them for you. Want a killer deal on a 2019 Callaway Epic Flash 10.5° driver? DeMane Golf’s got it, for now! From some of the most-obscure collector’s items, to the Ricky Fowler’s favorite TaylorMade 2019 TP5 Pix golf balls, if DeMane Golf doesn’t have it in stock (they have the balls), Rene will order it for you, and DeMane Golf will treat you right, on price.

the demane family
the legacy continues
Rick DeMane, like his father Jack, and grandfather Nick, is a problem-solver, only with a dash of very good humor. His engaging personality, and witty sense of humor, compliment a curious, perceptive, creative, analytical mind that is uncanny at helping golfers optimize their games.
Beautiful aloha spirit
Rene DeMane is an artist, songwriter, and horticulturalist with a penchant for making beautiful things. She met her husband-to-be, Rick, on Maui while in college back in the late 1960s. They got married, raised a family, and continue a family tradition of helping customers to better their games.
A 100+ year legacy
Family patriarch, Nick DeMane, competed with hickories in the 1915 U.S. Open. Club-making was a part of the game back then. His son, Jack, was a master craftsman. Hogan, Wilson, and Hagen tapped Jack as their first authorized repair shop in the U.S. Rick dovetails the past with the future.
