Ron Garl Has Designed Africa’s Largest Golf Academy!

December 27, 2012

Ron Garl has designed Africa’s largest golf academy! Ron Garl has just returned from a trip to Nador, Morocco where he met with members of the Hassan II Golf Federation about the Grand Opening of the Golf D’Atalayoun Golf Academy in Nador, Morocco.

Africa’s largest golf academy at Golf D’Atalayoun (which sits directly on the Mediterranean Sea) will be celebrating their grand opening in the spring of 2013. Attendance at the Grand Opening will include his Excellency The Prince Moulay Rachid.

The Golf Academy is part of a world class golf course project with the King of Morocco at the Royal Palace on the Mediterranean Sea.

Components of the Golf Academy include:

The Ron Garl Scoring “V” emphasizes short game strategy. Here the player can practice wedge shots from 50 to 100 yards, in 10 yard increments, thus developing feel and muscle memory for various lengths of wedge shots.

The Compass Rose resembles a sailor’s compass with a green set in the middle and hitting stations surrounding the green in a 360 degree perimeter. It is designed for practicing chip shots of 50 yards or less. As the player works his way around the green he practices a variety of shots.

The Sandbox is designed specifically to improve your sand game. It has multiple bunkers at different depths and sand types to practice any sand shot you encounter during a round of golf.

The Practice Diamond is a facility to hone your approach and chip shots from 50 yards or closer.

In addition to the short game practice components, Golf D’Atalayoun has a dual ended mega practice range with target greens at varying lengths and multiple putting greens.

Ron Garl and his team continue to be the world leader in practice academies around the world. Renovated or improved practice facilities have proven to be the #1 way to get new members to your course.

Let us put our experience to work for you!
