Celtic Manor Resort in Wales is relaunching its Golf Academy next month with a £500,000 facelift featuring the installation of Toptracer Range technology.

Toptracer Range’s technology allows golfers to practise like never before, offering real-time shot data and accurate, interactive visuals alongside a host of different game modes to make range sessions more enjoyable.

Toptracer interactive screens are being installed into every one of the 28 bays at the Golf Academy driving range, allowing golfers instant access to live shot analysis such as distances hit, accuracy, ball speed, launch and landing angles.

Furthermore, Toptracer Range will be incorporated into the expert tuition packages available from a team of PGA professionals at Celtic Manor Golf Academy, allowing the resort professionals to take their teaching analysis to the next level.

The Celtic Manor Golf Academy will show off its new facilities for the first time at a launch event on December 12, where anyone can try out the new tech and compete for a host of brilliant prizes provided by Callaway.

The extensive refurbishment will be completed in January by the opening of a state-of-the-art VIP suite equipped with the latest Callaway equipment. The suite will be bookable for groups looking to celebrate a special occasion, enjoy a night out with a difference, or for corporate team-building.

Celtic Manor Resort Director of Golf, Spa and Leisure David Griffin said: “Toptracer Range is the ultimate game-improvement and entertainment tool, and I am sure golfers of all standards will really benefit from its many functions when they come here to practise.

“The addition of Toptracer will further enhance the academy’s credentials as the premier practice facility in South Wales, and we are also always looking for ways to encourage more people to take up golf. Toptracer will transform our academy facilities, and we look forward to improving our experience for every golfer that visits our resort.”

David Cederholm, EMEA Sales Director for Toptracer, commented: “It’s very exciting to start this partnership, and it represents a fantastic opportunity to continue the growth of the game of golf in Wales. It’s brilliant to be working alongside such a prestigious venue, and we look forward to seeing how Toptracer can enhance the visitor experience at Celtic Manor.”
