About Ralph's Pro Shop
Ralph's Pro Shop is owned and operated by Ralph and Carrie Gorsuch. We have opened a pro shop in Elkhart. Ralph's Pro Shop is located inside Signature Lanes, just off CR 17. We have had one and sometimes two pro shops while living in North Carolina for the past 16 years. We look forward to serving bowlers in the Elkhart area.
This is a FULL time business for us. We are devoted to our customers and love to see and hear about their accomplishments. Ralph and Carrie are both certified pro shop operators, having completed the Power House Training and Innovative programs on bowling ball fitting, drilling, maintenance, and repair. Ralph has also completed the advanced pro shop training program as well as Kegels first coaching program dealing with the top problems bowlers suffer from. We continue our education to stay up to date on the current drilling techniques and technical information in order to serve you to the best of our ablility.
Ralph's Pro Shop stocks merchandise from all the major manufacturers and participates in the following pro shop programs: Storm VIP, and Roto Grip Star. Ebonite, Hammer, Brunswick, Columbia, 900 Global, Motiv and Track programs.
We use the finest drilling equipment available to ensure a great fit each and every time. The importance of ball maintenance is also a priority with us. We offer the finest resurfacing machine (to maintain your bowling ball's surface), Detox (water bath with ultra sonic waves used to pull the oil out of your bowling ball), all of this to keep your equipment performing at its peak. Remember, it's important to match your bowling ball's surface to the lane conditions and your style--confused?-- WE CAN HELP!
Although I have done many things in my life, bowling has always been a part of it. Starting with a Bowling Lanes Management Degree from Vincennes University and being the captain of our collegiate bowling team. I ran a bowling center for a few years during which Carrie and I ran the youth bowling program. During this time I also helped organize the High School Bowling conference in our area, and coached the local boys and girls bowling teams.
I belong to IBPSIA and USA Coaches Association. I continue to attend many seminars and classes on ball drilling techniques and coaching techniques, staying in tune with the most up to date information available. I am a certified Team USA Silver Level Bowling Coach and offer lessons by appointment. Coaching and ball drilling go hand in hand as we try to watch bowlers roll a few shots before drilling new equipment. And, believe it or not, it's not always the ball. Sometimes, you just need a lesson or two to improve your game.
