PGA qualified golf school with excellent, freely accessible practice grounds and a well-stocked shop
Golfacademy & Driving Range “De Hoge Dijk” is a practice facility for players of all skill levels.
We have everything you’d expect from a modern practice facility. On the driving range you can ht balls from mats or from grass, we even have a number of heated hitting stalls. The driving range also has a number of targets, enabling you to calibrate the distances of your clubs.
To the left of the DR we have a large bunker, so as to put your sand wedge skills to the test.
On the pitching range you can practice your short game, learning to drop a ball right next to pins at different distances.
The large putting green offers short and long putts, and thanks to the different levels you can also learn how to “read” a green and practice the breaks of a putt.
The PGA professionals at the Golfacademy are at your disposal to offer advice. They can analyze your swing with Flightscope, and offer up tips & tricks for you to cope with specific situations on the course.
Just let hem know the topics you’d like to address specifically (long, short game, bunkers, draws, fades, putts, etc.) oo which problems you experience (hook, slice, driver, reading lines on the green, water, sand, etc.), and the Pro will have a range of practice routines at his disposal to help you improve your game.
And you may not even hit a single ball, as the mental aspect of the game sometimes also needs some TLC.
Your game improves the more you play, that much is clear. But minor errors tend to seep into your over swing over time. It is paramount to take lessons regularly, both for novice players and experienced golfers. Golfacademy “De Hoge Dijk” is ready to help you take your game to the next level!
