VAIL – Golfers can prepare for the upcoming golf season at the Vail Golf Club by booking a lesson and utilizing the club’s golf swing analysis program.

The swing analysis program utilizes multiple cameras, plus sound and light to capture a golfer’s swing in real-time and slow motion, and then records it digitally.

According to Vail Golf Club head professional Jeanne Sutherland, swing analysis offers golfers an opportunity to study their swing plane, setup, motion and impact position. It also affords the opportunity to compare their skills with proven professionals, as well as track progress against their own past swing mechanics and even e-mail the video to friends.

“Taking a lesson and using the swing analysis program is a great way to prepare for the upcoming golf season,” said Sutherland. “It’s also a perfect opportunity for skiers and riders to enjoy a day on the mountain and then come join us for some golf. It’s the best of both worlds.”

Swing analysis lessons are taught by Vail Golf Club professionals and are available by appointment only. Lessons cost $40 per 30-minute session or three for $100 and can be booked by calling Sutherland at 970-479-2260 ,ext. 4. Lessons are available now through April 15.
