S hopping C enters Sittler Golf grows to bigger Berks location

Zerfass of Colliers International brokers sale of the 14 acre Kutztown, PA property


Other accolades have included Golf Range Magazine's "Top 50 Golf Range" and PGA’s “Mer- chandiser of the Year.” The tots they totted around, Ricky, Ryan and Kasey, are now young adults working within the business themselves. The next chapter for Rick, Patty and family is shifting to a new Berks County site in Sinking Springs, PA opened in March of 2019. “We were breaking out of the seams” said Patty. “Sittler Golf Sinking Springs is three times bigger and adds 10 acres of land.” The new location, just outside of

Reading, offers a denser popu- lation to support the business yet remains convenient to their original Kutztown community. “We are excited for this next chapter and the continued growth of our business at Sink- ing Springs.” Derek Zerfass of C olliers International’s Allentown office represented the duo in in the sale of the 14 acre Kutz- town property in early April to TimTay Allentown LLC. Future plans for the site will likely include retail redevelop- ment but no official plans have been set. 

stay of the Kutztown com- munity since the 1960’s and has grown over the past 26 years to become a nationally award-winning facility. One of America’s “Top 100 Golf Shops,” golfers from all over the world have visited Sittler Golf to gain an edge with their exceptional club fitting experience. It is that explosive growth that pre- cipitated the search for a new, larger location. Purchased in 1993 by Kutz- town natives Rick and Patty Kline as a driving range, mini- golf and ice cream shop it has been a distinct small business success story. The pair met as students at Kutztown Uni- versity and Rick subsequently began his golf career as an ap- prentice at Marriott Seaview Resort of Absecon, New Jersey. It was there that he chanced upon a fellow Kutztowner and exchanged business cards. Ten years and several promotions later, he received a follow-up call on that exchange - to see if he might have interest to purchase a golf driving range in his hometown. The two 29-year- olds with a young family were suddenly faced with the deci- sion to own their first business – and they took it. Early years saw them living between two states, each parent caring for one child. Rick coached the Kutztown golf team for over a decade. The two improved the busi- ness with the addition of a golf shop in 1996, six weeks after the birth of their daughter, and steadily built their reputation for outstanding club fitting. In 2011, Sittler Golf earned a top spot on Golf Digest’s inaugural “Best 100 Clubfitters” list – a rank they have maintained consecutively ever since. The distinction was a turning point for Sittler Golf - taking it from a community gem to a regional resource with thousands of golfers from throughout the Tri- State frequenting the center to experience the benefit of a cus- tom fit for their golf equipment.
