Birchwood Park Golf and Country Club has undergone a £750,000 driving range revamp.
The course in Wilmington has reopened with the introduction of pioneering TrackMan Range technology, while also introducing all-new food and beverage facilities.
The redevelopment - funded by club owner and operator, Burhill Group Limited (BGL) - comes following the success of the company’s first three TrackMan Range installations at venues in Nottinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Surrey.
Birchwood’s new facility boasts a remodelled driving range with 30 TrackMan Range touch screen bays as well as two VIP areas. The new range has seating in each bay and is open from 11am to 10pm daily.
With the new technology, players can tee it up at major championship venues like the Old Course at St Andrews, enjoy practice sessions, challenge friends in innovative game modes, or simply enjoy time with family.
The technology precisely measures each shot, giving instant feedback on ball speed, carry distance, launch angle and more. Information is then either displayed on an in-bay monitor or via the free mobile app which records all shot data in a player’s profile to review later. In addition to the upgraded practice facilities, there has also been a new bar installed with two wood-fire pizza ovens and a grill area.
Stephen Norton, general manager at Birchwood Park Golf and Country Club, said: “We are extremely excited to be able to offer this brand-new, state-of-the-art facility to our members and visitors from the region.
“This vastly upgraded range will allow guests with all levels of golfing ability to enjoy their time us, whether playing games socially with friends or having a serious practice session.”
