New look for Poult Wood driving range
The driving range at Poult Wood Golf Course has reopened for business after a total refurbishment costing £30,000.
As well as boasting 12 new True Strike mats, which ensure the range is as close to practicing on a natural surface as possible, there are new target nets and flags, and new tower markers to help golfers accurately judge the distance they’re hitting the ball. A new ball dispenser, conveyor and pick-up machine have also been installed to ensure the range offers state-of-the-art facilities.
The range also be getting a state-of-the-art Flightscope system in March, which is a Doppler radar system that tracks users shots in many different ways in order to better understand their game.
Poult Wood is now perfectly placed to help both our members and visitors hone their game, and this refurbishment ensures we can now offer the full golfing package for everyone from beginners and members to the society golfer.”
The new driving range also provides an ideal environment for teaching, and Poult Wood’s dedicated PGA Pro, David Copsey, will be launching new junior and adult teaching programmes and ‘get into golf’ lessons this March.
“Our lessons will help beginners transit from the range to our 9- and 18-hole courses, or we will also work with more experienced golfers to sharpen the skills they’re using on the course so they’re ready for the new season in April,” says Copsey.
