We are excited to announce the opening of GOLFTEC Durham! The new state-of-the-art instruction and club fitting center is located in southwest Durham at: 3604 Witherspoon Blvd. Suite 101, Durham, NC 27707. This will be our third location in the Raleigh-Durham area and our sixth location in North Carolina. The new Training Center will help GOLFTEC better serve the great golfing community in North Carolina!
The new 3,300-square-foot facility features five golf simulator bays, powered by Foresight Sports and our advanced motion measurement technology (OptiMotion). To round out the golfer’s complete game, the facility includes an indoor putting green and lessons enhanced by TECPUTT, a motion technology that analyzes face angle, loft and path direction of putting strokes.
Our Durham Training Center also features our enhanced custom club fitting program. The TOUR-like fitting experience combines swing characteristics with ball flight data to help identify optimal golf equipment for each student. An array of clubhead/shaft options are available to perfectly match players of any skill level with the clubs that best meet their needs. Nearly 75% of all golfers who went through a club fitting in 2020 gained an average of 25 yards over their previous equipment.
The new Training Center will be managed by Eric Jordan who previously was a Coach in our North Raleigh location. Jordan, a PGA Member specializing in teaching and coaching, graduated from the Golf Academy of America and has taught over 11,000 golf lessons with GOLFTEC. He is able to understand the unique needs from each student, then help them maximize their potential due to his extensive teaching experience.
GOLFTEC Durham’s Training Bays will feature OptiMotion. A groundbreaking motion tracking innovation that sets a new standard for how golf swings are measured and the way golf instruction is delivered. OptiMotion is powered by custom-built, high-speed, HD cameras that measure the golf swing in 3D and leverages a proprietary artificial intelligence model to unprecedentedly collect more than 4,000 data points in every swing.
