Hi-Tech Indoor Instructional Centre Unveiled in Singapore

GOLFTEC’s Singapore centre.

Singapore: GOLFTEC – the top employer of PGA professionals – has announced the Grand Opening of its Singapore Instructional Centre, the company’s most recent expansion into the Asian market.
Offering five teaching and practice bays, two large putting greens and TECFIT club-fitting services, the Singapore facility joins Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and Canada as the latest international example of GOLFTEC’s rapid global expansion.
Every student starts with a Swing Evaluation, which provides a fact-based diagnosis and measurable path to improvement, followed by a certified personal coach recommending a specific game plan.
While the majority of lessons are taught indoors in private bays, coaches also accompany players for on-course/outdoor lessons to ensure they are comfortable in real world situations.
Area golfers are encouraged to come meet the staff and learn about the pioneering programmes that have led to a 96 per cent success rate among GOLFTEC students.
Located at Republic Plaza II in Raffles Place, the facility showcases GOLFTEC’s vibrant new in-centre design scheme, which promotes a dynamic and holistic golf experience through an inviting and inspiring atmosphere.
Each of the company’s new locations are tailored for total golf immersion and provide students with new amenities, game improvement products and services, an extensive digital experience and comfortable furniture in common areas.
“The overseas interest in GOLFTEC has picked up tremendous steam in recent years, especially in Southeast Asia,” said Joe Assell, Co-Founder and CEO of GOLFTEC.
“Our world-renowned approach to instruction and club-fitting has revolutionised the way that golfers learn and improve and we’re excited to bring our unique approach to Singapore.”
Overseeing the facility will be Centre Managers Craig Crandall and Chris Neylan. Crandall is a PGA of America member and Neylan has taught more than 12,000 lessons over a nearly decade-long career at GOLFTEC.
Both men will supervise a team of highly-trained GOLFTEC coaches, including Australian PGA Member Chris Marriott and British PGA Advanced Professional Matt Chalmers.
This past April marked the company’s 22nd anniversary. Over more than two decades GOLFTEC has posted unrivalled category growth, including a 98% increase in revenue since 2010.
The largest driver of new business comes from referrals by current students who drop an average of seven strokes from their scorecard. GOLFTEC expects to teach nearly one million lessons in 2017.
The global GOLFTEC coaching team is comprised of experienced professionals, most of whom are PGA professionals and have taught thousands of lessons. Each goes through a rigorous multi-week certification at GOLFTEC University including continued advanced training to master the analysis of golf swing mechanics, the technology utilised by GOLFTEC and the most productive teaching techniques.
Committed to strengthening the industry and hiring the best staff, GOLFTEC is the largest employer of PGA professionals in the world.
