Golf Expert Chris Hardy
  • Chris Hardy

    I grew up in South Africa and started playing the game of golf at 5 years old. I took it very seriously from the age of 12 and represented my country in different age categories before gaining Professional Status in 2015 when I became a member of the PGA (Professional Golfers Association).

    I have 2 years of experience as a Online Certified Club Fitter and 6 years experience of being a Golf Professional at high end private country clubs and golf courses in Florida, New York and Arkansas. A major part of my roles there was giving customers/members advice on golf equipment, swing instruction, conducting club fittings and working on club repair (loft/lie angles, re-shafting and grip change).

    Golf is a lifetime sport so I enjoy sharing my knowledge with customers about equipment to make sure they purchase the right equipment to help improve their game and keep enjoying this wonderful game. I get to test out all new equipment on a regular basis to share my first hand knowledge with those I'm advising. Most importantly, I'm a golf expert, not a sales guy! I know this market very well and will always find you the perfect solutions to your needs.

    I think this is my third purchase with Chris. He has always been very knowledgeable and extremely patient and helpful. I have bought a set of irons last year a couple wedges, and now a driver and the three wood I can’t wait to start hitting them. Thank you Chris you are the best.

    First time using Curated. Chris Hardy, my Curator expert, was knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive to my questions and helped me find exactly what I was looking for. There were an abundance of products and brands to shop from and once I completed my order it arrived on time. Everything worked out great, no complaints.

    Chris was awesome!
    He was very personable and really made it obvious that I was talking to an actual human being than a robot. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He taught me multiple things I did not know about looking for when buying new clubs, and he was prompt with his experiences. I had a great consultation with Chris and would recommend him to the highest degree to anyone else looking for some new golf clubs!

    Wilson's experience with Chris
    Chris Hardy is great at what he does and is a tremendous asset to Curated! This complete bag order is six months in the making. He never pushed or attempted to "quick sell" me any products. That in itself was extremely refreshing. After a couple of months, he sent me a message just checking in. It just happened to be the exact time I was ready to buy a new set of clubs. Being new to golf, I needed a lot of help with choosing the exact tools that would fit my game. He patiently and professionally answered my many questions until we finally came to the perfect set of clubs. Rest assured, I will tell everyone about Chris and this amazing company, Curated!!! This will be the ONLY place I will purchase golf clubs...so, when the time comes, I will be a repeat customer. Thank you for an outstanding experience! Wilson Townsend

    Chris and I spoke in 21 for the first time. He was able to reassure me that he was helpful and not just saleful. Almost I did not buy then today I did. My pro expertise.

    Creed's experience with Chris
    Wish I had known about price matching. I don't feel like I got a great deal and my expert didn't tell me much I couldn't figure out on my own. I ended up buying some totally different irons than he recommended based on a demo at Golf Galaxy...

    Good job Chris
    Sized me up for my needs for irons, recommend what I needed then we started looking at different sets Chris gave me options, ended up with top set of irons for reasonable price. I recommend if you need a club this was good for me. I checked internet in different places but kept coming back to this site. Thanks Chris

    Chris was very helpful. As an employee or seller on behalf of Curated. He should be making commission off what he gets people to buy not an added tip from the customer. I hope he gets commission from the orders.
