The Modern Golfer expects a lot from their golf membership. A quality golf course, sociable member base and top of the range practice facilities. Not too long ago, the driving range was all about hitting a bucket of balls to warm up or a quick practice session when you couldn’t get on the course. Now-a-days however, the driving range is beginning to realise its true calling as one of the primary attractions at your club.
To begin bringing your driving range to the forefront of your golf clubs business model, there are a number of ways you can apply a face-lift. Read more to see how Steve Joy and Freddy Valenti have revamped the facilities at some of the top golf courses in the UK.
One of the best ways to use a driving range as a golfer, is to check in with your club pro for a lesson. Guided by years of experience and training a golf lesson can unlock the secrets of your golf swing and ultimately make you a better golfer. With one of Golf Swing Systems’ teaching bays you can provide the perfect space for a golf pro to deliver lessons, utilise the latest golfing tech and bring in new golfers to your driving range. In the pictures above, you have the amazing convertible teaching bay at The Bedfordshire Golf Club.
Quality Hitting Bays
A quality hitting bay is essential to the driving range experience and the primary driving force behind this, is the hitting surface. By using our unique Tee Turf Strike Mats, you are able to provide life like feedback on iron and wedge shots with the 35mm turf depth creating a “fairway-like” response. An additional benefit to this surface is the ability to use real tees, for real practice. You no longer need to put up with set tee heights dictated by rubber tees. Instead your members can recreate the tee box with their own tees at their favourite height. In addition to the hitting surface, you can build a fully customised hitting bay. Whether you want your logos included, putting turf surrounds or even additional technology added, you can build the ideal practice area for your club. One of the most successful uses of Tee Turf Matting can be seen at The Buckinghamshire’s new driving range facility.
Shot Tracing Technology
Golf Technology has changed the way golfers view the game. You no longer need to watch your shot and guess yardages. Systems like Trackman Range create an immersive gaming experience for your golfers. Using tour-proven technology and the industry’s best Virtual Golf, Practice, and Entertainment software Trackman Range is a gateway to attract and retain guests with a new interactive experience, and if you’re a player, you’re about to experience a whole new way to practice, play and have fun.
