Indoor Golf Practice Area
It is our goal to provide the Rose-Hulman golfer the top of the line technology to better their performance on and off the golf course year-round. Established in the winter of 2019, Fightin’ Engineer Indoor Golf Practice Area is located in the Fieldhouse of the Sports and Recreation Center (SRC).
SkyTrak is a real-time tool that serves as a personal launch monitor, with immediate and accurate feedback on ball flight. Thanks to its wireless capabilities, our athletes can stay sharp through skills assessments, and realistic range practice. It was named the “Best in Golf” by Golf Digest (2017 and 2018) and “Best Consumer Technology of the Year,” by MyGolfSpy (2015).
Paired with SkyTrak, TruGolf E6 is a simulator software which allows our golfers to challenge each other in a high definition virtual environment. Included in the software are Driving Range, Scoring Zone, Chip and Putt Practice Area, Long Drive and Closest to the Pin. As well as a veriaty of courses including: Pinehurst Country Club #2, Bay Hill Club & Lodge, The Belfry, Bountiful Golf Club, Castle Pines Golf Club, Firestone Country Club, Harbour Town Golf Links, Mauna Kea Resort,, Bethpage Black, Torrey Pines Golf Club, Troon North Golf Club and others
Our indoor putting green, provided by Pro Putt Systems, is based out of North Carolina. It is known to combine the best turf with the best base system to give realistic ball speed, roll and bounce. Measuring about 23’ long and 7’ wide, this putting green allows our athletes successfully putt from a variety of distances. A portable chipping mat gives a new approach to short game as well, as it can be moved to almost any distance.
Our state of the art training equipment has been used by other collegiate programs such as USC, Princeton, Harvard and Notre Dame.
