Golfers, of all abilities and ages, can now assess their skills at a new state-of-the-art practice facility.

Northamptonshire County Golf Club, in Church Brampton, has opened a Swing Studio where super high-tech monitors measure shots either whilst putting or driving.

Using ballistics - the science dealing with launch and flight of objects - the facility uses the same technology used by the world’s golfing champions and their coaches.

Members and non-members can access the same facilities and use a wide range of coaching aids installed in a joint venture by the club and head golf professional Tim Rouse.
