The Golf Club at Briar’s Creek Unveils State-of-the-Art Performance Center
The new 1,000-square-foot facility features a dedicated putting room, a hitting bay equipped with cameras and top-of-the-line swing and ball flight monitors and a club-fitting room to ensure members are outfitted with the proper equipment. The center also includes a cutting-edge course simulator, which allows members to practice virtually on real courses throughout the U.S.
“The Robert C. McNair Performance Center will allow members of The Golf Club at Briar’s Creek to refine their skills under the direction of top instructors, combining state-of-the-art equipment with personalized training,” said Clint Wood, general manager at The Golf Club at Briar’s Creek.
The Golf Club at Briar’s Creek also announced the hiring of Hank Smith as the Director of Instruction. Smith will manage the performance center and will oversee training. Smith is the former Director of Golf and Lead Golf Instructor at Frederica Golf Club on St. Simons Island in Georgia.
Future club enhancements include the addition of three on-site guest cottages and a total renovation of the club’s golf course, which will take place in spring and summer of 2020, respectively.
