Golfers visiting Sun City will now not only have two world-class golf courses to choose from, but also access to some of the best instruction in the country with a new cutting-edge golf instruction studio that has opened on the resort.
The Gammon Golf Academy, under the management of renowned teaching professional Don Gammon, has been built on the driving range at The Lost City Golf Course and adds another major attraction to what is one of the iconic golf venues in South Africa.
“We want to make a massive contribution to the Sun City golf experience and help add even more value at what is a fantastic golf facility,” says Gammon.
The Gammon Golf Academy is equipped with a golf simulator offering 90 of the world’s most recognised golf courses as well as the latest in swing analysis technology, and it is manned by a qualified teaching professional.
Gammon’s vision is that is fills a purpose for the beginner to elite golfer. “We have five or six bays where you’re able to hit balls and get some good accurate numbers on your swing in the studio. But we also cater for corporate groups, development clinics and school groups. I want it to be a place where people can come and get good information.
“It’s not about getting anybody to play golf the Don Gammon way, but rather about being a source for great information about your game to help you enjoy your golf experience at Sun City more.
“Essentially, my vision is that somebody must be able to walk off having played a round of golf at one of the two courses and come to us and say I’ve got a problem with my bunker technique and then we can show them one or two things that can make a difference to their next round.
“And if golfers come for two or three lessons during their time at Sun City, they can go away with a comprehensive breakdown of what is going on in their games sent right to their phones, and they can go and work on it with their regular coaches.”
Gammon says they also want to appeal to groups looking to use the simulator for fun corporate events.
“You could have a fun fourball on the simulator if you want to book it out for an afternoon. So it can be used for high performance or for a group just wanting a fun experience.”
And Gammon is currently working with Sun City on offering packages for the country’s leading schools to bring their golf teams to Sun City for high performance getaways.
“I want people to really associate Sun City as a great place to go and work on your game. It’s got two world-class golf courses, a great driving range and now the technology to analyse and work on your game as well. “If I was a golf coach at a top school, I’d be looking at booking out a Sun Vacation Club unit for a few days and taking my golfers up there and spending some quality time just working on all facets of their games.”
Gammon is in no doubt that golfers visiting Sun City in the future will now have the complete offering to make their golf experience an unforgettable one.
“The type of service and experience we’re offering is a studio that has the kind of equipment that brings the wow factor and where people can get a high quality experience and as much information about their game as possible.”
