Striker Golf helps players tweak their techniques and maximize their potential inside a 4,200-square-foot facility packed with advanced equipment. Players with already-solid games can opt for an 18-hole round of golf in the HD course simulator (a $35 value) and practice clubsmanship on the driving range and greens (a $25 value). The simulator features high-definition images, not cardboard cutouts, of 18 championship courses, and uses a club-and-ball-tracking system that allows players to watch their stats and ball flight. Battle the wind at Kiawah Island, conquer a paralyzing fear of water hazards at Pinehurst No. 2, or re-enact classic U.S. Open moments at Pebble Beach. After launching a dimpled cosmonaut down the faux fairway, recline on one of the comfortable leather couches while awaiting your next shot. Striker also offers custom club fitting services and membership plans to keep players swinging year round.
With detailed instruction from a golf pro, a 60-minute swing assessment begins with a brief discussion about personal goals as a golfer, followed by a detailed discussion of the cultural significance of Dorf on Golf. Combining individual instruction and K-Vest-motion-capture technology, students will gain valuable insight into their swing, expertise level, carriage, and strength at the moment of club head impact.
Like farming, picnics, and attempting to climb a skyscraper with suction cups, golf outings are dependent on ideal weather conditions. Striker Golf's facility takes rain and cold out of the equation by offering golfers a chance to play in a climate-controlled compound. Within the 4,200-square-foot facility rest four expansive hitting bays for practicing long drives and a 700-square-foot putting green for fine-tuning one's short game. HD golf simulators replicate rounds on famous courses through vivid images and precise motion-tracking sensors to give players an authentic experience without having to dodge runaway golf carts.
