Trackman is the best ball flight analysis tool in the market place today. Focusing on club head speed, face angle, launch of the ball and spin, the Trackman unit is able to track the flight of the ball and tell us why it took its path.

With the ability to analyse all shots in great detail, our coaches have the best opportunity to identify problem areas that need to be focused upon.

Sam PuttLab is a radar unit that tracks the movement of a putter throughout a stroke.
A Sam PuttLab session involves hitting a number of shots while the unit measures the movement of the putter. A report is then generated that shows the coach and golfer exactly what is happening throughout the stroke and how to improve moving forward.

Focusing on aim, rotation, strike on the putter face and tempo, this analysis gives unparalleled information that will allow players of all abilities the chance to improve one of the most important parts of the golf game.

Bodi Trak is a unit that simply measures a golfer’s balance and weight distribution throughout a golf swing. One of the most common issues amongst amateur golfers is an incorrect weight shift within the golf swing.

The Bodi Trak measures how a golfer’s weight transfers through the swing and then allows the coach to demonstrate how they would like this movement to occur. The ability of the golfers being able to feel this movement gives them the best chance of improvement in moving forward.

Our unique Golf Academy offers not only the best coaching tools but the ability to play some of the world’s best courses using our high quality golf simulator software. In the event of bad weather, or even just for fun, groups of up to four players can play a full round of golf in year-round comfort. Imagine teeing up on the 7th tee at Pebble Beach whilst it teems with rain outside here at Kooyonga!

A must for all members to experience – get a group together and enjoy one of the best facilities Australia has to offer.
