Ramside Hall Hotel, Golf and Spa has added Toptracer technology to its driving range, allowing golfers to track shots, play fun games and test their ability on some of the world’s best courses.
Toptracer – which has also revolutionised TV coverage with its ball tracking system – is available in each bay at Ramside’s driving range and offers the chance to track every shot in your practice session.
As well as allowing you to gather data, there are a range of modes including The Approach Challenge, which is designed to help fine tune iron play in a game of nine approach shots on a choice of three legendary courses, while Closest to Pin games take place on some of the most scenic par threes in the world.
Players can also try out My Practice to work on their game or compete to hit the ball the furthest on Long Drive, while Toptracer 30 will provide insights into the strengths and weaknesses of your whole game.
For young golfers or those just starting out in the sport, Go Fish is a fun game using golf shots to catch each of 24 different sea creatures.
All your data is stored on your account in the Toptracer app, and Helen Roseberry, director of golf at Ramside, believes the system is a massive boost for everyone who visits the driving range.
“Everyone is very excited about it,” she said. “It’s an incredible piece of technology and we are glad to be offering it to our members and guests.
“It’s great for all levels of golfers. The experienced golfer can see instantly where they need to adjust, while the younger golfers and children can actually see what they are achieving – and it’s lovely to see families on the range playing together, too.”
