  • Indoor Golf Studio
    • The Golf Studio at Oak Hills Country Club is a 900-squarefoot indoor golf training facility with state-of-the-art technology to record, track and analyze your swing, ball flight and putting stroke. The studio offers the most realistic experience in putting, chipping and full swing. A 10-by-15-foot Mirage turf putting green provides a realistic feel, similar to the experience you would find on the finest bent grass greens and measures 12 on the Stimpmeter. With three regulation size drop down cups, you’re able to roll putts from all directions and distances for a true putting experience.

      The 6-by-15-foot Mirage turf chipping green allows for true roll and realistic bounce. While chipping onto this turf, you’ll notice how the ball checks up and runs exactly like a real bend grass green. The chipping green is complete with a movable hitting pad so chip shots can be struck from distances of 14 feet up to 30 feet.

      The Studio also features an enclosed golf cage to practice a full swing. The enclosed cage is 8-foot-10-inch by 12-foot-6-inch by 8-foot. A launch monitor, overhead projector and 8 footby12-foot impact screen can display a driving range, fairway and green into the cage for a realistic full swing experience.
