With a fresh PGA Tour season underway and spring on the horizon, golfers have a renewed passion for the game and motivation to improve. Stadium Golf Center is a wonderful resource for those not only looking to make some changes in their golf swing, but also to log some quality short game practice, find the right equipment, and enjoy an overall sense of support for their golf game.
Fore the Record
The center has the most PGA (11) and LPGA (1) professionals at a single standalone facility in the country, and six of them have played in PGA Tour events. With this much variety, players are sure to find an instructor who fits their learning style.
All golf balls are replaced every 90 days. The ability to practice with new range balls provides golfers with more accurate feedback for each shot they hit.
The center is weather-resistant with 24 covered mats, which keeps the occasional rain shower from becoming a deterrent.
The entire facility, including the short game area, is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and equipped with flood lights. This wide-open availability leaves golfers with no excuses for missing practice!
Stadium Golf Center’s junior program is extensive and includes a variety of settings in which to learn the game: group instruction, golf camps, individual lessons, and tournaments. The golf professionals specialize in every ability level for boys and girls, from novice to elite. They also actively support the Grow the Game initiative, which provides free access and discounted retail pricing to many local high schools and community programs as well as special rates for members of the San Diego Police Officers Association and all active-duty military. And if you need a break from the greens, the center has 10 batting cages that feature arm-style pitching machines. Batter up!
