The Performance Centre - The Swing Room
Available to book online or through the Pro Shop.
With the use of the latest technology, the Performance Centre uses ball data that is picked up and projected onto a large hitting screen. You can then see ball flight along with spin rates, launch angle, total distance, carry distance, average distance, ball speed and much more. Providing accurate statistics is key to improvement on performance.
With the Performance Centre being indoors, there is no need to worry about the weather if you have a lesson booked in. With this facility the professional team can also offer lessons during the evenings in the winter time.
Individual practice sessions can be booked in the performance centre. Again this is a great option for those wanting to practice during adverse weather conditions. It will also enable you to get much more from your practice with accurate data produced after every shot.
Another service provided in the performance centre is gaping sessions, this is a great way to find out exactly how far you hit each club in the bag on AVERAGE, not how far you hit it downwind, downhill on a hot day in the summer! Having this information will allow you to make better smarter decisions on the course.

5 Hours for £50.00
Gapping Sessions - £40.00

Joe Silence - PGA Assistant Professional
I joined Betchworth as a beginner back in 2007 under the careful guidance of Robin Lugg. Being here felt like Augusta National compared to my local 9 hole course. I developed through the junior ranks, working tirelessly as all passionate young golfers do. I decided to carry on my passion in golf at Merrist Wood College where I studied a sports diploma in Golf. I am now pushing forward with my golfing career and starting my PGA training.
Favourite player - Tiger Woods
Favourite course - Wentworth West Course
Favourite football team - Crystal Palace
Top tip - Tee it high, Hit it long!
Length off the tee has always been one of my strengths, why can’t it be one of yours? Tee the ball higher and further forward in your stance. This will allow you to catch the ball on the upswing and launch the ball high and long with low spin.
