Wycombe Heights Golf Centre in Buckinghamshire is close to completing the construction of a brand-new driving range featuring state-of-the-art Toptracer Range technology.

The club has invested hundreds of thousands of pounds into the new facility, and one of many new advancements is the installation of Toptracer Range technology into 20 of its 24 bays – becoming the only club in the area to offer the shot-tracking technology.

Using cameras mounted around the facility, Toptracer Range technology tracks and displays every shot on video screens found at each hitting bay and allows for a host of fun game modes that are scalable to any ability. Data is instantly recorded and displayed on the screen through a player profile that can be accessed at any time through the Toptracer Range community app; allowing users to return to their stored data on subsequent visits or compare their performance against friends.

The new driving range at Wycombe Heights will be open to all, offering tuition from its experienced team of professionals and a comfortable setting for beginners to take up the game or have fun with friends and family.

Sarah Blunden, General Manager at Wycombe Heights Golf Centre, commented: “We are all so excited to be opening the new driving range and I can’t wait to see how it transforms the practice experience here. Toptracer technology has become very recognisable to golf fans over the last couple of years, and it will really add a new dynamic for both avid golfers and beginners looking to pick up the game in a fun and relaxed environment.”

The investment into constructing the new range was extensive, with roughly 100,000 tonnes of soil required to re-level the outfield, as well as fitting new bays and updating the existing golf range equipment.

Wycombe Heights’ driving range opens to the public on Saturday, April 13, with the club’s grand opening event which will feature music, a BBQ and much more. The club is running a competition to win a golf membership worth £1,000, which can be entered online via the Wycombe Heights website before the April 10, with the winner being announced at the Grand Opening on April 13.
