Tips from your Pros
Golf Performance Center
Uniquely Enhancing our Member Experience
Indian Ridge unveiled a new facility in November 2014, of which very few clubs anywhere can boast – our new Indian Ridge Golf Performance Center. The vision of this amazing facility realizes one of the goals in our Strategic Plan completed in April 2014 – to “continuously improve programs & amenities at Indian Ridge” and specifically to “implement a first-class golf training program & range facility which would include state-of-the-art golf educational equipment.”
Designed to integrate perfectly on the northwest side of our double-ended Driving Range, the Performance Center offers an impressive array of capabilities. It is also a significant point of distinction separating Indian Ridge from other great golf clubs in the Valley. The facility provides our Members and their guests with access to the latest technology to improve their skills and derive more enjoyment and satisfaction from the game of golf.
Utilizing the Performance Center as the centerpiece, Head Golf Professional Charlie Peterson and his staff of 6 Assistant Professionals have developed a comprehensive Golf Academy with game improvement packages and a-la-cart options - everything from swing evaluation, ball & club speed analysis, club fittings, club distance and gap measurements, to skills testing and improvements, and on-course instruction and fitness training with our Health & Fitness Personal Training Staff.
The Performance Center is a tastefully designed and landscaped edifice that mirrors the architecture of the main clubhouse. The lead technology is a FlightScope X2 Launch Monitor utilizing Doppler Radar to access multiple ball flights, club and swing path data, ball spin rates, angle of attack and a myriad of other useful data points to assist our Pro Staff in improving your golf game. The Performance Center uses the V1 Video system to take high-speed, high-definition and slow motion video. The system utilizes on-screen instruction capabilities plus side-by-side comparison to PGA and LPGA golf professionals, and tracks Members’ game improvement over time.
Access to personal lesson archives and video “lockers” online allows Members to access instructional information from any location. The facility features fitting equipment from TaylorMade, Callaway, Cobra, Ping, Adams and Titleist and provide fittings for most manufacturers. The Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting occurred on November 5, 2014 followed by several days of group demonstrations and personal orientations. More demonstration days and orientations will follow during the season.
