Several factors point to the growth GOLFTEC experienced in 2021. In Q1, GOLFTEC launched OptiMotion, a groundbreaking technology that sets a new standard for how golf swings are measured. OptiMotion is powered by custom-built, high-speed HD cameras that capture and record golf swings in 3D. In addition, the GOLFTEC Skills Challenge was launched, which allows Students to set benchmarks based on accurately hitting targets from a variety of distances. Skills Challenges reflect a portion of the increased lessons given in 2021.
GOLFTEC also contributed over $2 million in charitable giving through GOLFTEC Cares, our charitable initiative with a mission to unite communities through golf and drive the game towards greater accessibility, diversity, and long-lasting charitable impact. Organizations GOLFTEC supported in 2021 include the following:
- PGA HOPE
- Solich Caddy & Leadership Academy
- Black Girls Golf
- Notah Begay III Jr. Golf National Championship

“We are extremely proud of the growth we experienced in 2021, and we look forward to carrying that momentum into 2022,” said GOLFTEC CEO, Joe Assell. “Seeing our numbers up from past years across the board is very encouraging, however, we plan to break those records this year by opening more Training Centers, hiring more Coaches, giving more lessons and increasing our charitable giving. All of this points back to our ongoing mission of helping people play better golf. We want to help the most Students we ever have to play their best golf in 2022. With the talented GOLFTEC Team we have, I am confident we will get that done.”
