Gleneagles enhances golf academy practice experience

Return to News

Gleneagles, the iconic Scottish hotel and global luxury destination, has elevated the service it offers golf enthusiasts at its PGA National Golf Academy with the installation of Toptracer Range, an interactive and social experience for all levels of player.

The PGA National Golf Academy has been at the forefront of golf tuition for more than 25 years and its expert coaches have helped thousands of golfers transform the way their game is played, whether that’s a first ever lesson through to advanced swing analysis for more accomplished players.

By adding Toptracer Range, featuring in-built games, data at your fingertips, and Tour-proven technology, guests can now take the guesswork out of range sessions at ‘The Glorious Playground’, with an engaging, data-driven experience that will appeal to everyone.

Visitors to the Academy’s facilities can access Toptracer Range from touchscreens within 6 covered bays, or via a free-to-download Toptracer mobile app, for those practicing from one of the 15 open-air bays.

Commenting on the enhancements to the PGA National Golf Academy, Head of Golf, Andrew Jowett, said: “Experience and service are at the heart of everything we do at Gleneagles, and the addition of Toptracer Range to our facilities will give every guest a new dimension to their time at our Academy.

“While it’s the perfect analysis tool for those looking to craft a better game, it’s also an ideal platform from which friends, family and work colleagues can enjoy a host of fun, interactive games, whatever their standard of golf might be.”

Gleneagles remains one of the world’s must-visit golf destinations featuring three critically acclaimed 18-hole championship courses – The King’s, The Queen’s and the PGA Centenary – plus a 9-hole Academy Course, and a Hotel pitch-and-putt.

The 850-acre Perthshire estate is currently ranked #2 in the Top 100 World Golf Resorts ranking, recently published by Golf World. It has also consistently retained a position as the #1 Golf Resort in the UK & Ireland.

Gleneagles is the only venue in Europe to have staged both The Ryder Cup (2014) and The Solheim Cup (2019). It will also welcome legends of the game to the Senior Open Presented by Rolex on The King’s Course, July 21-24, this year.

Beyond the fairways, Gleneagles’ guests can unwind and relax at the world-famous Hotel, where a wealth of food and drink options await, including The Strathearn, the theatrical Franco-Scottish dining experience, the Birnam Brasserie, a relaxed Mediterranean style restaurant serving the best Italian and French-style cuisine, or toast the day’s play in Auchterarder 70, overlooking the 18th greens of The King’s and Queen’s.

Gleneagles also boasts over 50 pursuits, including fly-fishing, falconry, cycling, off-roading, equestrian experiences and archery. Guests will also have use of a range of leisure facilities, including the pitch-and-putt course, lawn games and outdoor tennis courts.
