A Day at the Golf Academy

Golf is a great game for many reasons. It’s one of the few sports that takes both physical and mental toughness. To succeed in the game of golf, you need to do one thing over and over again: practice! This is where the WinStar Golf Academy can help. We offer a variety of services to help you better your golf game whether you’re a low-handicap player or a novice.

When you visit, there are a couple of things I highly suggest you try right away. First up: GEARS. Dubbed as the MRI for golf, this full-swing club and body tracking system measures and analyzes every nuance of your swing in 3D from grip to follow-through. Trackers are placed on your body and project a life-sized image of you on a screen. Swing as you normally would, and your statistics will show up on screen. These statistics will be used to tell you what you’re doing right and what you should tweak to improve your swing. GEARS can also compare your swing to that of a professional golfer. Don’t let this intimidate you—it’s actually really interesting and informative!

Another of the must-tries is the PGA TOUR® AboutGolf Simulating Studios. This system allows you to play on almost any course in the world—all while standing in one spot. Your swing will be tracked for carry distance, trajectory angles, horizontal path, ball speed, club speed and many other performance statistics.

Our Golf Academy wouldn’t be complete without staple features like our covered and heated outdoor hitting bays, fitness center, stretching room and outdoor driving range. We even offer custom club-fittings. Click here for a complete list of our services.

While all of our Golf Academy services are wonderful, they wouldn’t mean much without our Golf Academy instructors. Our instructors have more than 100 years of golf experience combined. Gary Nutt, has 38 years of Director and Head Golf professional experience. He was also the former president of the South Central Section PGA. Bill Knodle, use title, coached the LPGA and All of our instructors are great, so you will always be in good hands!

Whether you’re a seasoned golfer looking for a fun day out or someone who has never picked up a club, this is the place for you. Rain or shine, the WinStar Golf Academy allows you to enjoy playing golf without worrying about the weather. We’re open Monday – Saturday from 8:00 a.m.­–4:00 p.m. To book your day at the WinStar Golf Academy, call 580-276-1240. I look forward to hearing about your experience!
