$37.50 for 30-Minute Golf Lesson and 30-Minute High-Def Simulator Session ($75 Value)
The 60-minute instructional session is broken down into a 30-minute swing lesson and 30 minutes in the High Definition Golf simulator. All lessons are conducted by a PGA of Canada Professional at BraeBen Golf Course, the 2012 winner of the Golf Association of Ontario (GAO)'s Facility of the Year award.
BraeBen Golf Course
Though the 200-acre BraeBen Golf Course boasts an 18-hole Championship course, a 9-hole Academy course, a driving range, and wildlife such as falcons and coyotes, its most unique attribute can’t be seen with the eye. The site’s green energy system provides enough renewable energy to continually power more than 5,000 homes in Mississauga, making the course not only a joy to play but also a positive example of golf-course conservationism. This respect for the environment is evident as golfers tee off on the par 72 Championship course, an homage to golf’s early days in the Scottish highlands with its tall grasses, deep pot bunkers, and strong winds that can knock iron approaches and jump high-fives well off-course.
The Academy course and its CPGA professional instructors create a prime setting for player development, winning BraeBen the GAO Coaching Facility of the Year award in 2011. Director of Instruction Bradlee Ryall and his team use all 9 holes—measuring between 100 and 200 yards and possessing unique game-improvement challenges—as opportunities for players to lower scores and collect fodder for their annual Christmas letters. Additionally, they deploy TrackMan 3 golf radar to measure players’ key swing statistics, including trajectory and landing position, for every swing from 6-foot pitches to 400-yard drives.
