Radar technology coming to Tickenham

PUBLISHED: 14:33 06 March 2013 | UPDATED: 14:33 06 March 2013




Tickenham Golf Club will have radar technology with the arrival of a launch monitor.

TICKENHAM Golf Club has invested in providing the most accurate launch monitor for custom-fitting golf clubs, teaching and hiring out for practice.

The FlightScope X2 is a Doppler Radar technology that tracks the ball, providing an accurate measurement of distance, launch angle, clubhead speed and spin rates etc. eliminating guesswork.

Golfers can download the FlightScope skills software to use on a phone or tablet to check their own ability and have fun. It works by presenting a sequence of virtual targets in a session, which is fully customised.

Golfers hit shots to each target. Each shot is scored, based on its proximity to the target, and cumulated to give an overall score/performance for the session.

There is free custom fitting on new product launch days – Ping on March 20, Nike on March 26 and Callaway on April 9. All sessions are between 4-8pm.

Please telephone Tickenham Golf Club on 01275 856626 for a booking.
