At Urban Links, a team of CPGA pros helps golfers up their games with lifelike simulator technology and hands-on training sessions with CPGA instructors. During the two-hour golf simulation, two golfers can enter the matrix to perform feats of golfing wizardry on one of more than 10 courses such as Banff Springs, Mauna Kea, Castle Pines, or Dorado Beach. Sessions within the virtual golf world help club-sluggers keep their swings, chips, putts, and drives sharp during the chilly months. In a one-hour lesson and training session, participants spend the first 30 minutes powwowing with a pro to develop goals, assess current skill levels, and address problem areas. The next 30 minutes take place in one of six training bays sporting digital-video technology, which relays spot-on analysis and swing comparisons with a database of tour pros. With a 10-pack of one-hour training sessions, golfers have enough time to take full advantage of the equipment and develop secret handshakes with cyborg Greg Normans.
At Urban Links, golfers up their games with hands-on training sessions with certified instructors and access to an indoor facility with the latest in golf training technology. Golfers can cure their slice-, shank-, or narcolepsy-prone swings inside hitting bays that feature TrackMan swing-analysis software, which uses motion sensors and video playback to break down swinging motions. Urban Links’ resident aces also enlist TrackMan technology to help players find out the club specifications that best fit their swing and body type. Along with lessons and club-fitting sessions, golfers can take advantage of the equipment and develop secret handshakes with cyborg Greg Normans during independent practice sessions in the hitting bays.
