LYTHAM Green Drive is the latest club to go hi-tech.
And the club’s new facility has already been given the seal of approval by one of the game’s best-known motivational figures.
Green Drive’s new, state-of-the-art indoor coaching studio and indoor practice arena has been built to benefit present and new members, as well as future golfers.
It was officially opened by Karl Morris, recognised as Europe’s leading mind coach and psychologist to some of the best golfers in Europe and beyond.
His clients include the current Open champion Darren Clarke, as well as Masters champion Charl Schwartzel.
Green Drive secretary Ian Stewart said: “The coaching studio, representing significant investment by both the golf club and its PGA Professional, Simon Williamson, is equipped with some of the best coaching equipment on the market, and has all the latest technology installed, including GC2 Launch Monitor, the Sam Putting Lab, high speed cameras, and V1 online coaching academy.
“The equipment and technology installed makes this possibly the finest indoor golfing facility on the Fylde Coast.”
Morris said: “This facility is something to be really proud of and a great credit to the club.
“Nobody can walk in there and not fail to be impressed.”
While at Green Drive, Morris treated the members to his ‘mind factor’ course.
He delivered an entertaining and interesting insight as to how the mind works and how to cope on the golf course under pressure.
To celebrate the opening of this facility, Green Drive is offering the chance to join the club without paying a joining fee for a limited period.
Stewart said: “Membership of the club not only gives the advantage of a golf course that is second to none, but also a thriving social side that the club is proud of, offering many casual and formal events throughout the year.
