State of the art equipment and facilities

 

 

The Golf Academy has a floodlit dual-level driving range where you can choose to practice either from a state of the art Astroturf mat or from natural turf. The highly popular mats have been imported from Fiberbuilt, a Canadian based company, which supplies mats to some of the best facilities in the world. The facility includes four target greens, a pitching area, a chipping green with a practice bunker and a large sized putting green. The entire concept is that of creating a practice facility that gives the golfer an opportunity to practice any kind of shot that he may encounter on the course.

The Academy is well equipped to conduct Video Analysis of the golf swing on the internationally acclaimed V1 Pro Software. This is done by recording the swing on super slow motion cameras and then analyzing the swing on the laptop loaded with the software. This practice is consistent with the methods used in the top Academies all over the world. The Academy recently imported the latest in Putting teaching technology, the SAM Putt Lab. With the use of this technology, our instructors are able to break down the minutest of problems in Putting and analyse Putting data provided by the software.

The other facilities at the Academy include a video room for the analysis and classroom lectures, a video and book library, and ball collecting and dispensing machines and the Explanar system, used by beginners to understand the plane of the golf swing. Among all these facilities, there is also a splendid coffee shop in a separate and exclusive Academy clubhouse.
