If a driving range is your current golf improvement facility of choice, you're missing out.
Top to bottom, GolfTEC Improvement Centers are built to facilitate maximum improvement. Your average driving range or golf practice dome doesn't stack up to a GolfTEC indoor facility. Consider just a few of the common barriers to improvement: inclement weather (rain, snow, extreme heat and cold), inconvenience (location, time and availability), lack of reinforcement and visual feedback.
Unlike your local driving range, a GolfTEC facility eliminates all of those barriers. Indoor, climate-controlled hitting bays take care of any weather issues. Nationwide locations with online lesson and practice scheduling allow you to work on your golf game where and when it's most convenient for you. Patented technology paired with a wide assortment of training aids helps you maximize your golf improvement efforts.
Improvement is hard enough. You need a golf facility that accelerates your improvement—not one that slows it down.
Indoor vs. Outdoor
You may be unsure about trying golf lessons and practice in golf facility without feedback from ball flight. After all, golf is played outside and ball flight on the course is the final exam of improvement. But it's important not to confuse the process with the outcome.
While most of GolfTEC's Improvement Centers teach both indoors and outdoors, after teaching, tracking and analyzing over 2 million lessons, GolfTEC knows conclusively that swing mechanics are taught much faster indoors.
It's short-term versus long-term results. Traditionalgolf lessons focus on ball flight, using tips than can produce a few good shots for a round or two. GolfTEC focuses on learning a good swing, using the best feedback and communication tools in the industry, which creates a lifetime of better ball striking.
All you need in a golf facility
Every aspect of your golf improvement is covered in a GolfTEC Improvement Center. Lessons, practice, full swing, putting, driving, short game, club fitting and equipment purchasing—GolfTEC is the only golf facility you need for improvement. And at GolfTEC, improvement never has an off-season. Regardless of how hot or cold it is outside, the temperature always stays the same.
At your local driving range, weather, time, location and availability can all prevent you from working on your golf game. You might have a free half-hour in your afternoon schedule. If you try to go to your local driving range, it's not going to be easy. Drive to the range, carry your clubs from the parking lot to the hitting area, purchase a bucket of balls (and potentially wait for a spot to open up), rush through as many shots as you can, clean the grass and dirt from your clubs (and maybe your shoes, pants and shirt), walk back to your car, wipe the sweat off your face if it's hot out, and finally, drive back to work. All this in around 30 minutes? Doubtful. Sure, it may be a bit exaggerated. But you get the picture.
Now consider taking your half-hour to head over to your local GolfTEC instead. Schedule your lesson or practice session online in advance, drive to your nearby GolfTEC, grab a club out of your trunk (or just one of GolfTEC's many demo clubs), walk straight from your car into the front door, step into your private, climate-controlled hitting bay, take a few warm up swings, complete your lesson or practice session, jump back in your car and head back to the office without a hint of grass, dirt or sweat (which would suggest to your colleagues that you had been working on your golf game during office hours).
The facilities behind the Proven Path
All five factors of GolfTEC's Proven Path rely on the advanced technology found in GolfTEC facilities. At the core of every lesson is GolfTEC's patented g-SWING system:
- Motion measurement – waist and shoulder sensors accurately capture body positions from setup to finish, recording 24 data points for every swing.
- Digital video – two high-speed digital cameras record front and side views, providing frame-by-frame visual feedback in lessons and practice.
- Biofeedback tones – "beeps" that positively or negatively respond to body position to help in the communication and correction process.
GolfTEC facilities also utilize g-PUTT technology—a system that measures the path, face and length of each putting stroke. Using the g-PUTT system, you and your GolfTEC Coach will be able to analyze and improve your putting stroke like never before.
In addition to the g-SWING and g-PUTT systems, GolfTEC facilities utilize Vector Pro Launch Monitors; just one key component in GolfTEC's advanced Personal Club Fitting. Launch monitor technology provides accurate feedback on club path, face angle, launch angle, and the distance and direction of every shot.
