The facility will feature two hitting bays, each with a Flightscope Launch Monitor and Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate.
Cordillera Ranchin Boerne, Texas is nearing completion of its new Golf Performance Center at Cordillera Ranch, which is scheduled to open later this spring.
Designed by architect Jim Terrian, the Golf Performance Center at Cordillera Ranch will feature two bays on the west end of the club’s Practice Park. Each bay, constructed by Tim Cutshall, will have a Flightscope Launch Monitor, which provides an innovative combination of 3D Doppler Tracking and image processing. Cutshall installed the radar so that it integrates with camera and video data, and provides instructors and students launch characteristics of each shot.
Each bay will also have a three-camera system integrated with the Flightscope Launch Monitor to provide instant feedback on every shot and help instructors develop a custom plan for improvement. Flightscope technology will also improve the Cordillera Ranch instruction staff’s clubfitting capabilities.
In addition, the Golf Performance Center at Cordillera Ranch will be one of the few facilities in Texas to offer the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate. The flagship swing analysis system provides a unique combination of the state-of-the-art pressure plate technology (Balance Plate) and a highly-advanced force plate, to allow \instructors to study detailed foot-pressure data and center-of-pressure patterns.
The 3D Motion Plate also provides horizontal and vertical force measurements of the amount of torque and ground-reaction forces generated during each swing—data that provides invaluable information for analysis throughout the golf swing, as the ground is the source of power and energy in the swing. The 3D data is synchronized with high-speed video images and Flightscope Launch Monitor technology.
“We’re adding the finishing touches to the Golf Performance Center at Cordillera Ranch and eagerly awaiting its unveiling to our members,” says Director of Instruction Bryan Gathright. “All of this incredible technology, combined with our instructors’ passion for making our members better players, certainly makes the future of golf instruction at Cordillera Ranch exciting.”
