Wilmslow GC Opens Player Performance Centre

1.30am 20th December 2012 - Course Development

Sunday 25th November 2012 marked the first day of a new era for The Wilmslow Golf Club: the opening of its all new practice facility encompassing The Player Performance Centre managed by Wilmslow’s award winning Head PGA Professional Matthew Gillingham.

The Facility was the brain child of Matthew and a focused committee and has been 18 months in the making from design, planning application, build and fit-out.

The project has given an already extensive practice area a new lease of life by maximising the potential of a 300+ yard long range with up to seventeen golfers now being able to hit balls at once.

Wilmslow has invested in its practice area to enhance the benefit to its existing members and has cut no corners in making sure the build quality of the undercover bays is second to none and with premium golf specific artificial turf for winter usage along with premium range golf balls there is a real feel of excellence about the whole facility.

“Our goal was to deliver a product that stands up against any other private members club and guarantee our practice facility is in-keeping with the quality of our Championship Golf Course,” commented Head Professional Matthew Gillingham.

The facility has been kitted out with the latest equipment including TrackMan, the market leader in ball flight analysis for use in conjunction with golf tuition and custom fitting along with high speed cameras for video analysis.

General Manager of Wilmslow Keith Melia added: “The members are very excited about using the new facility and as this permits all year round practice and tuition and we are already seeing an increase in the numbers utilising the facility.”

The Player Performance Centre is open for tuition and custom fitting to members and non-members and is appropriately named as it has been fitted out to help golfers achieve maximum performance out of their game. The performance centre is a authorised fitting centre for all the top brands and provides a five star customer experience with the beautiful Cheshire countryside as a back drop.
