The Studio - Clubfitting

What was once known as the “Fitting Centre” has been completely renovated into what is now known as “The Studio.” The Studio at Cordova Bay is a state-of-the-art learning centre equipped with the latest and greatest launch monitor technology, fitting equipment from Callaway and PING, and an outstanding artificial putting surface for indoor training sessions. The cornerstone of this project was the addition of a Foresight GC Quad Launch monitor. For those who aren’t familiar, a launch monitor is a machine that is used to measure the exact characteristics of the golfer’s ball flight and golf swing. The monitor provides information such as carry distance, ball spin, apex height, club head speed, strike location, club path, and many more advanced metrics.We know what you’re thinking…. How in the world could something like that be helpful for my game? In short, this technology is extremely helpful in teaching all skill levels. This information helps your coach figure out the ins and outs of your unique swing much faster. From there, your coach can help you build a plan towards improvement that is streamlined specifically for you.
