Trafford Golf Centre takes 2019 investment figure to £50,000 with infamous Island Green hole

The UK’s busiest driving range, Trafford Golf Centre has invested a further £20,000 to build and complete an exact replica of the most iconic par three hole in the world, the 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass.

The latest addition to the 57-bay driving range and golf academy is a real game changer, following a £30,000 investment earlier this year to bring a dedicated short game practice area, featuring the best Huxley synthetic turf, to the popular TraffordCity golfing attraction. The 137-yard 17th, known as the “Island Green” is one of golf’s most recognisable and difficult holes. Customers can now enjoy true to scale green dimensions and practice the same distance as if playing on the course in Florida.

Director of Golf at Trafford Golf Centre, Pete Styles said: “We value the quality of practice at Trafford Golf Centre and we always strive to offer the best service, balls, mats and targets. Golf fans will have watched The Players Championship and seen the world’s best players dunk it in the water. With the addition of this Island Green replica, customers can try it out for themselves without the flight to America’s south coast.”

Trafford Golf Centre is the biggest golf academy in the north west with nine PGA professionals and features a wealth of services and facilities including: 16 Toptracer bays, 6 target greens spread over 300 yards, Power Tee Automatic Ball machines on 26 bays, licensed Café and Bar serving Starbucks Coffee and a range of food both inside and outside on the range plus the largest American Golf retail store in the north.

Pete continues: “We hope our customers enjoy the range upgrade and we look forward to hosting our ‘nearest the pin’ competitions in the summer months.”

Trafford Golf Centre is also home to Manchester’s most popular 18-hole adventure golf course, Dino Falls Adventure Golf. For more information on Trafford Golf Centre, visit: www.traffordgolfcentre.co.uk

Little Louie following in Tiger’s footsteps

At just three years old, Louie Ockerby-Morris from Failsworth is Trafford Golf Centre’s youngest Academy student and is currently impressing both customers and staff out on the range.

Introduced to the game following a round of adventure golf at Dino Falls Adventure Golf, and encourage by his dad, Steven Morris, Louie first started showing an interest in golf at the age of two after watching the sport on TV. Since then, his love for golf and professional golfer Rickie Fowler has grown, he even has a signed Rickie Fowler cap that he takes great pride in wearing when he practices. Louie has been playing since June 2018 and began his lessons with Trafford Golf Centre professional, Tom Fearon in October 2018.

Louie’s Dad, Steven Morris said: “Whilst walking through the driving range to Dino Falls, Louie was asking to have a go and wouldn’t take no for an answer (even though I thought he was too young at the time). It was there that we met Tom, who very kindly arranged for Louie to have a practice on the range. Louie was immediately hooked, and he has loved every moment since.”

Louie, who uses child friendly Golphin junior clubs, now loves to play golf everywhere from practicing in his bedroom to the park and in his Grandma and Grandad’s garden. There has been a positive boost in his confidence since embarking on golf lessons with Tom which he now attends weekly at the range.

Steven continues: “Louie has always had a confident nature but this has grown through Tom’s encouragement. He knows the difference between hitting a great shot and a shot that could have been better. He even pretends to be Tom and often teaches us how to play using the skills he has learnt during his lessons.

“Trafford Golf Centre is an incredible facility with everything that you could ever want to learn and develop in every aspect of golf. Tom Fearon has been incredible from the moment we met, ensuring Louie’s lessons are always fun and engaging which allows him to learn, understand and develop – hopefully in to the next Tiger Woods!”

Pete Styles, director of golf, at Trafford Golf Centre and Dino Falls, said: “Dino Falls Adventure Golf is a fantastic and fun way for parents to encourage their children to get out of the house and gain an interest in a new sport. Our junior Academy lessons offer a structured learning programme which encourages and motivates juniors through quality coaching activities and games to make learning this awesome sport great fun.

“We are thrilled Louie is enjoying his lessons at the Academy and look forward to seeing his progress in the coming months and years.”

In 2018, the TraffordCity-based driving range revolutionised its offering by installing the most advanced ball tracking technology, Toptracer to 16 bays following a £90,000 investment. Since then, a further £30,000 has been invested in a new short game practice area, featuring the best Huxley synthetic turf to give superb realistic results, offering golfers the very best in short game practice. 

Steven concludes: “We would actively encourage any parent who wants their child to take up golf, no matter their age. Not only does golf keep children active but it also helps with communication skills, hand/eye coordination as well as fine and gross motor skills. Golf is also a fantastic way to have fun and this is something that we always ensure Louie has in and out of his lessons.”

Trafford Golf Centre, which hit 14 million balls in 2018, and Dino Falls Adventure Golf is located next to the M60 and offers a ‘We proudly serve Starbucks Café and Bar’, 57 bay golf range, nine PGA professionals teaching from the Academy and the largest American Golf retail store in the north. Junior Academy lessons start from just £40 for 5 sessions (group lessons) and £90 for private lessons (5 x 30-minute private golf lessons).

CORRECT GOLF POSITION HALFWAY BACK #improvemygolf

golf tips 55flat shaft angle 1. steep shaft angle 2. Correct shaft angle 3.

www.howtoimprovemygolf.com Elite Golf Coaches Chris Fletcher & Andy Carter based at Trafford Golf Centre, with another simple drill to help you be in the correct position halfway in the backswing.
 
An issue we find with a lot of our clients is having the correct position half way in the backswing.  Here is a simple indicator to help you have a good start to your backswing.
(PIC 1) shows the golf club shaft angle is too flat, which can equate to an open clubface at impact, and the ball pushing and slicing.  If you don’t take divots, this could be a reason why.
(PIC 2) shows the golf club shaft angle is too steep, which can lead to lack of forearm rotation in the backswing, equaling lack of power/clubhead speed.  The ballflight could be a pull with a deep divot.
(PIC 3) The shaft is on plane with good hand hindge and forearm rotation.  This will allow for a better chance of completing a good backswing on plane, and having the club return square at impact.
KEY CHECK POINTS – When next at the driving range take the club up halfway in your backswing.  Either have a friend or mirror to check positions.  
1. The shaft should pass through the middle of your upper arm.  
2. The butt of the golf grip should aim towards the golf ball.
 
Try it next time your at the golf range.  Let us know if it helped your golf game via our social media platforms.

Postural & Backswing improvement

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRO5ms0wcEc&feature=youtu.be

After 1 week of downswing practice, creating an in to out swing path, this player felt very low about his swing and thought he had majorly regressed, in fact he had made a huge improvement.
The ball told him he was hitting bad shots but his downswing told me he was ready to start hitting the ball further and with a nice high draw!!!
We made 2 slight adjustments to his posture and top of backswing position which instantly felt more comfortable and the results were superb.

Golf as Popular as Ever at Trafford Golf Centre

Trafford Golf Centre is bucking the national trend of golf declining in the UK with a record number of golf balls hit in just one day!

Saturday 18th October saw Peel’s Trafford Golf Centre’s customers hit 55,000 golf balls on the range in just one day! The highest number of balls hit in one day during the Centre’s 15 year history.

Peter Styles, Director of Golf at Trafford Golf Centre said, “Golf in general is in a decline with fewer people participating in the sport at a club level, however we are seeing an increase in the number of people visiting our driving range.

“We have just launched our Junior Academy which is growing ever popular with over 60 children taking lessons per week. We have also introduced an adult teaching offer with five one hour sessions for just £25 each per person. This has encouraged over 100 golfers to take up the sport with a new class beginning every week.

“We aren’t seeing a decline in golf, we’re see a change in the way people play with more people enjoying the relaxed atmosphere here and the benefit of having PGA-Qualified Professionals on-site.”

The Academy at Trafford Golf Centre is one of the most advanced golf teaching facilities in the country with superb facilities and state-of-the-art technology. Our five teaching professionals hold all of their lessons at the Centre and can create lesson programs for every ability.

Trafford Golf Centre offers top class facilities with 57 undercover driving bays over two tiers with a floodlit outfield and extensive free on-site car parking. We have five on-site PGA Qualified Teaching Professionals and four state-of-the-art teaching bays in the Trafford Golf Academy, as well as an American Golf store. It is an iconic building immediately adjacent to Junction 10 of the M60, on the doorstep of intu Trafford Centre and close to Chillfactore and AirKix.

Elite Golfers have lessons too!!!!

Meet Alex,

A 2 handicapper currently enrolled at Plymouth University studying a Golf Management degree.

We worked hard on the off season to help Alex improve his game, but having not seen him for 2-3 months due to University, the swing had slipped back into older habits due to playing a lot of unsupervised golf .

As you can see on the video we worked on his swing plane to improve his balls shape and trajectory. Most golfers will be able to relate to this swing in terms of its path, as he come across his backswing line causing pull shots with his irons and fade/slices with his longer clubs.

To help maintain Alex’s golf swing, he is under instruction to send weekly videos so I can help maintain his progression

Play your best in a cross wind.

I think it’s fair to say that most people don’t particularly like playing golf in the wind…

But if you can be a solid player when the breeze is blowing, you’ll have a big advantage over your colleagues and competitors.

In this article  we’ll look at specific tips for playing golf in the wind – both cross winds and head winds.

I believe that most club golfers struggle in the wind because they simply don’t account for how much even a relatively gentle breeze can affect the flight of their golf ball.

A lot of the golfers I meet assume there has to be an almost gale-like head wind before they need to take an extra club. Rarely if ever would they consider taking 3 extra clubs.

And they either forget, or don’t realise, that the wind has a greater effect on the ball at the top of its flight. They only pay attention to how the wind feels around their ball, not remembering to check how it’s blowing around the tops of trees or the flag ahead.

The 1st Lesson effect at Trafford Golf Centre

This is a video from a client’s 1st golf lesson at Trafford Golf Centre with Andy Carter.

Note the significant improvements made to his backswing which had a positive effect on his downswing and swing path into the golf ball. Due to the better rotation in the backswing more space was created enabling improvements to the swing path, angle of attack and contact with the ball. This in turn led to better and more consistent shots.

A second lesson will further improve and strengthen the swing aiding him in his future goals. As with every lesson more knowledge and experience will be gained about the golf swing so if bad shots do reoccur, he has an understanding of what caused them.

For more information or to check availability on golf lessons with Andy Carter please call 0161 749 7000.
