The plan for the shop at Hoebridge

Hoebridge Golf Centre is undergoing a comprehensive facelift to increase the size of its retail outlet, and introduce the latest club fitting and coaching technology.

The project has been made possible after a £200,000 investment from Burhill Golf & Leisure, the UK’s leading golf course owner and operator that runs the public pay-and-play facility.

The new-look centre is set to open Saturday, May 28, with an entirely refitted golf shop, giving the facility a much fresher and more modern feel, and the golfer a wider range of golfing equipment and attire to choose from.

Hoebridge will be one of the first five golf centres in Europe to feature the new Flightscope X2, the next generation 3D club and ball tracking radar that will allow Hoebridge’s PGA Professionals to measure swing, club and ball data and view it wirelessly via laptop, iPad or even Smart Phone.

Mike O’Connell, Hoebridge Golf Centre Senior General Manager, said: “Our vision is to embrace the constant and ever growing needs of golfers with our new retail and custom-fit area. We will have everything a golfer, including juniors and ladies, needs.

“The new custom fitting room will be complete with the latest golfing technology such as launch monitors and video cameras, to ensure golf clubs are tailored to suit each individual player.”

Ian Hayward, Hoebridge Golf Centre’ Retail Manger and PGA Professional, added: “The new technology will not only help us to fit golf clubs to individual swings but also use in lessons to teach people how they can hit the golf ball longer and straighter.”
