Deer Park Golf in Howth, Co Dublin, has officially launched their state-of-the-art indoor putting studio to assist golfers with one of the most important aspects of the game. The studio, in one of Ireland’s most scenic courses overlooking the Dublin coastline, uses the advanced Capto Golf System.
42% of the game of golf is putting, yet it is often a technique lacking among the amateur golfer, who focus more on getting the ball to the putting green. The Capto-powered studio at Deer Park Golf gives users up to 20 readings on their putting stroke, with video recordings available to ensure that improvement can be monitored and passed on to the golfer.
Along with the stroke, the length, loft and lie of the putter itself can be checked and measured and adjusted to ensure the player is giving themselves the best opportunity to improve their stroke and score. Most putters used by the amateur golfer are bought directly from retail stores and not fitted correctly.
Alan Staunton, PGA Golf Professional at Deer Park Golf, said: “The putting game is drastically underestimated by many golfers, both those new to the game or the veteran amateurs. There is nothing worse than an excellent opening few shots being undone on the putting green, so we are really hoping that we can change people’s game with a few sessions in the studio. The 20 readings not only tell the golfer how to improve but, most importantly, the why behind it. It’s a user-friendly system, and very easy to see the immediate changes needed to turn a score from a bogey into a birdie.”
Philip Cabena, Deer Park member, said: “Putting has always been an afterthought for my game, relying on tee off and fairway play to keep the scorecard ticking over. Working with Alan in the putting studio has opened my eyes to the intricacies of putting, and its importance for my game as a whole. While it has improved my performance on the green, there are lessons about control and precision which I have brought into other aspects of my game as well.”
Deer Park Golf’s indoor putting studio is available for bookings of at least one hour, with gift vouchers also available. Each lesson includes written and video feedback, allowing the golfer to understand any errors in their stroke.
Group bookings catered for up to 6 people, ideal for Corporate, Family or Friends gatherings and days out. Regular coaching options available on request to help improve players’ game during the Spring and Summer seasons. Bookings and information available from email@example.com or on 087 418 0201.
