Bishops Gate Golf Academy played host to the German National Team for winter training for the fourth year.
The German National Team finds they have everything they need in a practice facility, as well as prime winter weather, to continue returning to BGGA year after year. The team brings a very large group of players and coaches and needs a facility that can cater to their needs.
“In Germany right now there’s snow, it’s winter and cold and there’s nowhere to go,” said Uli Eckhardt, German National Team Coach. “We want good conditions in which to practice and that we find here.”
BGGA’s facility allows you to train in golf course conditions every day. It has over 50,000 square feet of training tee space, 30,000 square feet of putting and short game greens, and 15,000 square feet of bunkers.
“The practice course is in fantastic condition and the greens are running really true and quick and the driving range is the best I can imagine,” said Eckhardt. “We have a lot of reasons to come here.”
BGGA prides itself on its course and performance training facilities and the fact that world-renowned national teams seek it out for training purposes.
