Pebble Beach Resorts celebrates new Pebble Beach Golf Academy & Practice facility

February 4, 2014

Pebble Beach Resorts has opened a new Pebble Beach Golf Academy & Practice Facility, marking the beginning of a new standard for instruction, training and technology for golf destinations around the world.

The new practice facility features a 350-yard, double-ended driving range with natural grass hitting areas spacious enough to accommodate up to 85 golfers. Nearly twice the size of the old range, the new range also features multiple, sculpted target greens with surrounding bunkers which offer a look and feel to mimic shots found throughout Pebble Beach Golf Links. A 40,000-square-foot short game complex with bunkers, chipping areas and a 4,500-square foot practice putting green also allows guests an unparalleled venue for perfecting shots on and around the greens.

The Practice Facility is also home to the new 3,000 square-foot Pebble Beach Golf Academy, which features three instruction studios. From beginners learning the basics to scratch golfers looking to fine tune their game, guests are offered a wide-ranging menu of personalised tools designed not only to lower scores, but to ensure a better experience on the course thanks to extensive training technology. These include a revolutionary robotic swing trainer, 3D motion capture system, HD video analysis, computerised putting stroke evaluation and indoor golf simulator. The Academy will also host numerous golf school programs throughout the year for some in-depth training.

Pebble Beach Company Chief Executive Officer Bill Perocchi said "Today marks an important milestone for Pebble Beach Resorts. We now have a practice facility and golf academy that rivals any in the world, but most importantly, one that is befitting the legendary golf, unparalleled customer service and stunning beauty of Pebble Beach."
