TrackMan Range launches at the Home of Golf

August 09 2018

St Andrews Links recently became the first golf facility in the UK to implement the TrackMan Range technology at the state-of-the-art Golf Academy, one of the largest systems of its kind in Europe. 

With the technology, players can now capture personal data on their phone or tablet in real time when hitting from one of the 32 bays at the Home of Golf. 

Using the free TrackMan app, players at the St Andrews Links Golf Academy can review and analyse their shots with eight ball parameters, including Ball Speed, Launch Angle, Launch Direction, Height, Carry, Total, Side and From Pin. For improved distance control, a player's range ball data can be converted into premium ball data, making the practice session even more efficient and ‘course-play’ realistic. 

In addition to gathering performance data on each shot, the TrackMan Range app also offers three fun games, which can be played alone or with friends. Games include Capture the Flag, Hit It, and Bulls-eye. Furthermore, the app’s graphics are an exact replica of St Andrews Links Golf Academy’s very own range, making the experience even more realistic and engaging.

To make sure golfers maximize their use of the system, the dedicated PGA Professional Rachel Lewis has joined the Home of Golf to assist and support players using the new system.

TrackMan and St Andrews Links have a longstanding partnership, based on both company’s thought leadership, respect for tradition, and how new technologies can help grow the game of golf. “We first installed TrackMan at the Golf Academy in 2005, one of the first in the UK to do so,” said St Andrews Links’ Director of Instruction Steve North. “Since then, we have worked closely with the team at TrackMan, integrating more of their world-class technology into the day to day operations at the Golf Academy. We were hugely excited to hear about the TrackMan Range system and are now delighted to be able to showcase it to the thousands of golfers visiting our facility each year. At the Home of Golf, we have a proud history of innovation across the Links landscape, combined with our ambition to deliver memorable experiences to every golfer. At the Golf Academy, this means we are committed to providing cutting-edge instruction, training, and equipment for golfers of all ages and abilities. TrackMan Range continues that proud tradition, providing golfers with their own personal TrackMan experience whenever they practice at the Home of Golf. We are hugely excited to launch this technology here and look forward to engaging with golfers and helping them to improve and enjoy their golf.”

For TrackMan, the long-standing partnership with St Andrews Links is unique on many accounts and an integral part of the company's strategy of respecting the game while finding new ways of unleashing potential.  “We are incredibly proud and humbled to have our TrackMan Range system installed at the Home of Golf. It's a testament to the fact that tradition and cutting-edge technology goes perfectly hand in hand while sharing a vision of growing the game we all love and cherish” says Sebastian Eldrup-Jørgensen, Business Development Manager for TrackMan’s Driving Range Solutions.
