Our new Golf Academy instruction center broke ground on January 22,2024. Located at the Cap Rock course, this new facility is positioned at the opposite end of the existing practice range currently servicing both championship golf courses: Apple Rock and Ram Rock.
Eight covered outdoor hitting stations will be outfitted with Top Tracer technology, giving the player exact yardage of the shot, ribbon illustration for the shot hit, and other features to enhance their practice experience. In near proximity will be a real grass putting/chipping green of 4,500 square feet to service any short game needs.
Two indoor teaching bays are designed with the flexibility to be climate controlled or open to hit into the outdoors, ultimately allowing the ability to see the golf ball flight in real time. Each bay will be outfitted with TrackMan and Top Tracer technology with multiple cameras to provide the golfers with slow motion capture of the golf swing, golf club, and golf ball data points.
The indoor bays are equipped as a golf simulator allowing members and guests to play over 100+ notable golf courses virtually.
The Golf Academy facility will include a full-service golf club repair shop and fully equipped fitting/demo clubs.
