GOLFTEC Naperville, previously located at the Iroqouis Center, recently opened their state-of-the-art instruction and club fitting center at 1504 N Naper Blvd. Suite 132 in Naperville. The new 3,600-square-foot facility includes six highly-equipped indoor bays, powered by TECSWING using Foresight Sports simulators for lessons, club fittings and practice.
Each bay is equipped with OptiMotion, a groundbreaking motion tracking innovation that sets a new standard for how golf swings are measured and the way golf instruction is delivered. To round out the golfer’s complete game, the facility includes an indoor putting green and lessons enhanced by TECPUTT, a motion technology that analyzes face angle, loft and path direction of putting strokes.
GOLFTEC Naperville also features the company’s enhanced custom club fitting program. The TOUR-like fitting experience combines swing characteristics with ball flight data to help identify optimal golf equipment for each student. An array of clubhead/shaft options are available to perfectly match players of any skill level with the clubs that best meet their needs.
With more than 220 locations across the world, GOLFTEC is the world leader in golf instruction. According to GOLFTEC, nearly 75% of all golfers who went through a club fitting in 2021 gained an average of 25 yards over their previous equipment.
The new center will be staffed by the highly-trained and certified Naperville team of coaches, led by Center Manager and Director of Instruction James Standhardt, who will continue to oversee operations. Standhardt, a PGA Member, has been with GOLFTEC for over 15 years and has taught over 25,000 lessons. He is able to understand the unique needs from each student, then help them maximize their potential due to his extensive teaching experience. GOLFTEC Coaches find the lesson plan best suited for each student’s unique needs, helping them drop an average of seven strokes from their scores.
The GOLFTEC coaching team is comprised of experienced instructors who have graduated from GOLFTEC University – a multi-week certification program based around a curriculum of mastering advanced training of golf swing mechanics and GOLFTEC’s proprietary technology used in all Training Centers. The majority of GOLFTEC Certified Personal Coaches are PGA Professionals who have taught thousands of lessons.
