UW-Eau Claire Athletics believes in providing our student-athletes with top of the line technology to better their performance on and off the golf course year-round. Established in the fall of 2016, the Blugold Golf Room is located in the McPhee Center on upper campus. What was once a racquetball court has now turned into a new facility for the men’s and women’s golf teams.
SkyTrak is a real-time tool that serves as a personal launch monitor, with immediate and accurate feedback on ball flight. Thanks to its wireless capabilities, our athletes can stay sharp through skills assessments, and realistic range practice. It was even named the “Best Consumer Technology of the Year,” by MyGolfSpy 2015 Editors Choice Awards. Paired with SkyTrak, The Golf Club Game also allows an exciting opportunity for our golfers to challenge each other in a high definition virtual environment. With over 100,000 golf courses to choose from, the possibilities are endless.
Our indoor putting green, provided by Pro Putt Systems, is based out of North Carolina. It is known to combine the best turf with the best base system to give realistic ball speed, roll and bounce. Measuring about 20’ long and 8’ wide, the “Pro’s Choice Model”, lets our athletes successfully putt from a variety of distances. Our portable chipping mat gives a new approach to short game as well, as it can be moved anywhere in the room.
Our state of the art training equipment has been used by other collegiate programs such as USC, Princeton, Harvard and Notre Dame.
