What is the Winter Golf Academy?
Your Professional Staff at Sunningdale have come up with a unique way to incorporate teaching and training over the winter months, on-site here at Sunningdale. The program includes:

How does it work?
Members book mat time (at 45 minute intervals) by using our online MatRez system or by calling the Academy. A Teaching Professional is always on hand to give you guidance during your booked time. Walk-ins will be accommodated if space allows.
All the training aids and Professional Instruction are available each time you visit.  We can review your video swing analysis at the Academy, or we can also email your analysis to you!

Computerized Video Swing Analysis:
We can display your golf swing in real-time video on an iPad or iPhone, in slow motion, frame by frame, comparison or overlay, to easily identify areas that require improvement. Studies have shown we all learn best through visual feedback and teaching aids.

Returning for 2020/2021: Premium Coaching Program and Resources
As an option, the Academy offers a comprehensive Coaching and technology review of your swing and ball flight, utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and methods, and spanning 6 personal training sessions. These 4 key areas are added to our regular Training Aids and Methods:

TRACKMAN 4 BALL FLIGHT ANALYSIS: Want to “see” ball flight, instead of just striking balls into a target? TrackMan 4 is the most powerful, accurate TrackMan ever. Dual Radar Technology guarantees maximum data quality. We now have the ability to track putting as well!


BODITRAK BIOFEEDBACK: BodiTrak delivers real-time balance and pressure distribution data, information previously limited to force plates. An athlete's use of the ground is critical for maintaining balance and generating power.
