The principles of the 3D Doppler Tracking Golf Radar
With technology improving the world of sports in leaps and bounds, more accurate sports measurement systems have resulted in improvements not only for players, but for spectators too.
3D Ball Tracking
The two main technological aspects of the FlightScope 3D motion tracking device are its radar technology (very similar to that which is used in the military), and its advanced industrial electronics.
The patented phased array tracking technology that is used in all FlightScope radar units is the most advanced in the industry today.
FlightScope's 3D motion tracking devices are not just about ball measurement; they can also help with your golf swing analysis by measuring 24 variables related to your Ball, Club or Swing, such as:
- Ball Speed
- Vertical Launch Angle
- Horizontal Launch Angle
- Vertical Decent Angle
- Smash Factor
- Spin Rate
- Spin Axis
- Carry Distance
- Total Distance
- Lateral Landing
- Apex Height
- Flight Time
- Shot Dispersion
- Club Speed
- Club Speed Profile
- Club Acceleration Profile
- Face Angle
- Face to Path
- Dynamic Loft
- Angle of Attack ~
- Club Path
- Vertical Swing Plane
- Horizontal Swing Plane
The ball's entire trajectory after it has been launched is also tracked, which means you have exceptionally comprehensive ball measurement information instantly available, helping you to improve your golf swing.

Junior Development Programme
Over the last couple of months, the Academy has been working hard to improve the juniors development and we are now pleased to say that a 4 Hole Junior Winter League will start and encourage juniors to play more golf.
A relationship has been made with the Golf Foundation to offer a structured coaching scheme in the form of the re designed junior passport programme which covers all the areas we would wish from a upcoming junior golfer. Each junior will receive a Passport, which is a record on each individual's progress.
Along with the relationship with the golf foundation, a £500 pot of funding has been accessed and will go into the JDP to allow us to offer taster sessions into the local community.
Do you know a Junior interested in learning a new skill?
The Junior Golf Passport programme, which runs midweek after school hours and Saturday mornings from 9am until 12pm is open to all under 14's who are looking to start golf.
The cost of the sessions is £28 per month One to one sessions are also available to more advance golfers to help with their development.

Rocket Launcher Mats!
As you know, winter rules are now in place and you can get your Rocket Launcher from the professional's shop!
The ROCKET LAUNCHER® has passed the test & is welcomed as a long awaited replacement for the old, tired, grass mats. When struck it feels like you've played off the natural turf so it maximises enjoyment and minimises wear 'n' tear on you & your clubs. Features;
- The ROCKET LAUNCHER® is so slender the ball rests a scant millimetre or so above grass height so no need to shorten your grip as with mats
- No restraint required - strike at full strength without fear of typical golf mat backlash
- It is self-anchoring so no more additional bending over to insert anchoring tees. Just tap it down with your club head, there, it's anchored
