Following a successful crowdfunding campaign, Prudhoe Golf Club will open a swing studio featuring industry-leading technology in December.
Having raised more than £23,500 through online crowdfunding, member donations and support from Sport England, the new studio will enhance the club’s practice facilities while offering a space for year-round coaching, junior development programmes, pre- and post-round entertainment, and more.
Using TrackMan 4 technology, golfers will be able to practise no matter the weather, play some of the world’s greatest courses, and work on their game with coaching from Prudhoe’s director of golf, Andrew Scrimshaw.
Andrew said: “Thanks to the generous support of members, the public and local businesses as well as a £9,000 grant from Sport England’s Places and Spaces fund, we’re over the moon to bring this new facility – unlike anything else in the Tyne Valley area – to the golf club and the wider community within just a few months of coming up with the plan.
“We’re looking forward to seeing people of all ages using the studio space – from juniors coming into the club for the first time to established members using the fantastic technology. We also want to see members of the community and local businesses taking the opportunity to try golf for the first time or host a team-building and networking sessions here too.
“Our thanks go to all those who have made this possible, as well as our contractors and Golf Studio Design.”
