Nemacolin Unveils New Golf Technology and Practice Space
Farmington, Pa – Nemacolin, the award-winning resort in Pennsylvania, recently unveiled significant technology and design upgrades to The Nemacolin Golf Academy.
Nemacolin, one of the premier, luxury golf destinations in the mid-Atlantic region, opened this exquisite, 4,000-square-foot space in late summer. With a renovated building design, all new furnishings, seven flat-screen TVs, and dazzling new décor, the luxe learning, practice, and entertainment space has also been outfitted with the most sought-after simulator, launch monitor, and biomechanical feedback technology in the golf industry. This includes cutting-edge hardware like TrackMan launch monitors and simulators, Foresight Sports’ GCQuad launch monitor, and Swing Catalyst’s Balance and Dual Force Plates.
The Golf Academy’s four, spacious, customized hitting bays can open up to the 25-station driving range that sits adjacent to two short-game practice areas and a large putting green. The Nemacolin Golf Academy, which also features a dedicated, 1,000-square-foot putting room, is optimized for expert golf training and club fitting under Golf Digest “Best Young Teacher” Michael LaBella and his team. Meanwhile, the inviting entertainment space with ample seating, room for multiple players in each hitting bay creates a fun and engaging venue for golf instruction, practice, dining, and private groups of up to 60 people.
“The Academy is becoming one of the most attractive places to gather and have a great time at Nemacolin, especially if you’re a golfer,” says Director of Golf Kelly O’Donnell. “As a day-or-night and any-season amenity for our members and guests, it’s such an energetic and social place to be. Whether it’s game day, time for a lesson, or you’re just in the mood to play a round on the simulator, you’re going to feel right at home in the Academy.”
LaBella’s team utilizes TrackMan’s cutting-edge, golf swing analysis system and full-wall simulators along with the innovative TrackMan Range technology which enables golfers of all skill levels to practice distance control, shot-shaping, and more. TrackMan’s tour-proven swing, ball-flight tracking, analysis, and entertainment technology gives instant access to a golfer’s carry yardage, total yardage, ball speed, trajectory height, launch angle, and launch direction, providing every golfer the ability to improve their game.
TrackMan Range at the Nemacolin Golf Academy also lets golfers play quick, fun, and challenging games, like Bulls Eye, Hit It, and Capture the Flag. They can also play a full virtual round on some of the world’s best courses. “Challenging your friends and fellow members to a virtual round on the simulator is a great way to keep your game sharp in the off-season,” says O’Donnell.
The Foresight GCQuad is the only launch monitor in the industry to utilize quadrascopic imaging for an extremely accurate, detailed evaluation of ball and clubhead performance analysis. With the infrared object tracking and high-speed, high-resolution technology, golfers will know their ball speed, horizontal launch angles, vertical launch angles, spin, spin axis and carry distance, and they’ll be able to see real-time data on the clubhead’s velocity, swing path, attack angle, clubface angle, smash factor, dynamic loft at impact, dynamic lie at impact, and impact position.
Using the Swing Catalyst Balance and Dual Force plates and the Foresight GCQuad, Nemacolin’s teaching pros can build a virtual 3D model of any golfer’s swing. The technology records foot pressure measurements, generated torque, and ground reaction forces by capturing thousands of images per second to help the Academy pros analyze a multitude of data and produce the most complete understanding of a student’s stance, swing, ball, and clubhead performance.
“We couldn’t be happier with the Academy’s renovations,” says Nemacolin President Maggie Hardy Knox. “Having a five-star, indoor golf amenity that serves both serious golfers and fun-seekers elevates the member and guest experience beautifully. Golf participation is on a big upswing, and we’re excited to offer a world-class teaching, training, and entertainment space that’s open and fun-filled all year long.”
