About TrackMan Simulators
It’s time to put an emphasis on purposeful golf practice! TrackMan’s data parameters have become incredibly important over the past few years as professional players and teachers have been using TrackMan’s technology to improve and enhance their golf game. As a result, player development has evolved by using the new and improved technology that transforms the way players evaluate and understand their overall game. Swing feel and ball data are now backed by concrete, quantifiable data that can be tracked over time. This data can help improve your game while seeing the progression from one session to the next.
When you step into one of the indoor simulators at The Practice Station, you’ll immediately have all the tools you will need to reach your full potential. TrackMan simulators redefine ‘virtual golf’ by offering data, course play, and the opportunity to practice like a pro with the best technology on the market.
TrackMan simulators utilize revolutionary radar and camera technology to deliver accurate swing and ball data that gives players feedback instantaneously. These simulators use the same technology that is used on The Practice Station’s outdoor range and is undoubtedly the best tracking system on the market.
All of TrackMan’s data points help golfers figure out what they are doing right and/or wrong with their swing. For example, smash factor helps you figure out how good your contact was with the ball, and Face to Path helps golfers figure out if they are swinging their club inside-out or outside-in.
TrackMan also has different features to help you read data to improve your swing. For example, the data optimizer will let you know if you hit an ideal shot. The optimizer will show you data parameters you need to hit in order to hit the best shot possible. Another example is Tracy; a virtual assistant who will give you advice on how to hit better shots and explain data parameters to you to help your game.
A True Golf Experience
TrackMan’s virtual golf courses offer hyper-real graphics to help enhance your indoor golf experience. These impressive 4K projectors give golfers the “real feel.” According to The Practice Station’s Marketing Director, Emily Ho, “You actually feel like you are in Palm Harbor, Florida playing Innisbrook Copperhead, when actually you are in New Berlin, Wisconsin playing on an indoor simulator.”
Golfers can play over 60 fictional and renowned courses from around the world that most golfers only dream of playing. From PGA Tour icons like Quail Hollow Club and Muirfield Village, to historic courses across the pond, like St. Andrews Links Old Course and Royal Troon, you’ll be instantly transported to a new destination each round you play. The best part is, you won’t even have to put in the travel time to get from course to course! Just reserve a time on The Practice Station’s website and you can choose what state or country you’d like to play on that day. To achieve this, each course has been mapped with drone technology, which offers much more precision when rendering courses virtually compared to mapping using satellite imaging like many other simulators. This then gives you the opportunity to play courses you might not have ever thought you’d be able to play in your lifetime!
Maximize Your Golf Time
Our simulators give golfers the ability to extend Wisconsin’s short golf season to a year-round sport. Instead of trying to shake off that rust on your golf game next spring, you’re now able to continuously improve, build good habits, and enjoy playing the game of golf even through the winter months. Not to mention, you can play 9 holes in under an hour with a partner, allowing you to get the most out of each simulator session.
The Practice Station Winter League
If you are looking for a little friendly competition to get your golf fix this winter, join The Practice Station’s winter league starting on November 29th, 2020! The format will be a handicapped league split into divisions where 2-person teams record a 9-hole net total score anytime during the week over 12 weeks. The best part about their league is that you’re not committed to the same day and time each week, but instead you’re able to record your score when it best fits your schedule. Cash prizes will be given weekly and during the playoffs. The entry fee is $50 for cash prizes, and each team pays $35 per week for their round. Click here for more details or email us to sign up!
