THE De Vere Village Heron’s Reach golf course has been boosted by official PGA status.

Herons’ Reach is now one of only five PGA Golf Academies in the UK.

It will give all golfers the chance to experience the level of attention to improve their own games that a tour professional would expect.

A spokesman said: “The club has completed its new custom fit and coaching suite. Within the suite has been assembled the latest technology and equipment to support all golfers to achieve their best.

“The PGA believes that for any golfer to play their best then no stone should be left unturned and every aspect should be looked into.

“This is a real coup for us – it’s the same accreditation as Gleneagles.”

Players will be able to benefit from video analysis that is used by many of the leading coaching academies around the world.

And the hotel has forged lucrative links with TaylorMade, Nike, Titleist and Ping.

The academy will also be able to e-mail lessons directly to pupils while also allowing their pupils access to their coaches from anywhere in the world.

The spokesman added: “K-Vest has been introduced to provide three-dimensional analysis of the golf swing providing information as to how efficient the golf swing is and using Titleist Performance Institute certified coaches, golfers can develop their physical abilities along with their technique.

“Whether you are simply just looking to enjoy your game that little bit more or you have personal targets in mind, there is something for everyone at Herons’ Reach to satisfy your goals. Only after visiting, will you have had your total golf experience.”

And a new system has been brought in to teach players how to improve their putting techniques.
