Scratch is a 12,000 sq foot indoor golf training and learning center. The center has four distinct areas for learning: putting, chipping, full-swing, and fitness.
What gets measured gets done
How does one practice or perfect anything without objective, measurable feedback? Think about this in terms of hitting ball after ball on a driving range. Sure, you saw where the ball went, and you have a “feel” for how many you hit right or left, solid or poorly, you kind of know how many you hit…but when you leave the range, you have nothing objective as to what just happened.It is very hard to improve in anything without the facts of your practice and play. Coaches in all sports will tell you that if the practice is bad, the play will be bad. So, how can you really know how you did on a driving range? Well, you can’t.
You need Accurate Feedback to Improve
You know that feeling after visiting a practice range? You hit some good shots, but what did you really learn? That issue is resolved with our simulators where your swing data is recorded! Because of the amazing accuracy of the aboutGolf product, you see extremely accurate data on every shot hit – distance, accuracy, spin rates, ball speed, launch angle, etc. Then every shot is charted along with a picture of every shot. For example, you can stop after each shot and see the data, or after 10 shots, or after 100, and it gets downloaded into a personal database so you can see it last week, last month, last year, etc. You know exactly what just happened in your practice session, and you can compare it to the one last week, etc.
More Than A Driving Range
Get “out on the course” and practice real shots on our simulators. You want to get that difficult “left to right tee shot” down pat on that tough par 4– so you just sit on that tee, and it as many shots as you want. You want to practice that high shot over a tree – you just find a spot out on the course and hit shot after shot. Any real shot that you may encounter on the course can be practiced on our simulators…..It’s “practicing on the course”!
Our PGA Pros are Here to Help
At Scratch, our PGA Teach Professionals will analyze and interpret your individual data. They can pinpoint strengths and weaknesses and focus on where you need improvement so you get better results, quicker!
Play Great Courses, Faster
Picture the typical driving range. Now imagine more than 30 different, world class courses, hole by hole. From Pebble Beach where the AT&T is played each year to the TPC Scottsdale where the pros always play on Super Bowl weekend, to so many interesting and great courses, the golf played on our simulators is so much fun!! And with a couple of friends, you can play in just over an hour! Eighteen holes on our simulators is amazingly similar to actually playing the course. Many Scratch members play several days and evenings per week in league play.
Perfect your putting on over 3000 square feet of greens built by Southwest Greens, manufacturers of the best artificial grass available. Our hort game area is even larger at 3500 square feet for bunker play, pitching chipping and flop shot learning
Our fitness room was built for golf-specific exercises to support the golf swing. Many people forget about the fitness aspect of golf and we make sure to incorporate it into our training.
