The Teaching Centre

The VGC Teaching Centre was opened in 2013 featuring the latest in state-of-the-art coaching and fitting technology. The major components of the technology are Flightscope which (as shown in the three photographs above) is a ball flight and launch monitor system. It generates information that determines the effectiveness of the swing and uses 3D Doppler radar tracking to follow the ball flight (as shown in the centre photograph).

Flightscope interacts with V1 GOLF, the world’s leading video analysis software system Its clients include some of the most respected coaches, instructors, athletes, organisations and training facilities around the world.

The V1 Golf and Flightscope launch monitor is used for lessons and club fitting.  Without technology, players can alter their swings and never really be aware of the actual impact. When swing changes are implemented, it is very hard to feel exactly how much you have changed your swing. Sometimes you feel as if you have made significant changes, but in reality, you have not changed much at all.  The combination of swing analysis technology and Flightscope launch monitor means that you get real time vision and data as evidence to ensure you are making genuine swing improvements. It also shows swing faults and flaws.
