When the weather turns cold outside in northwest Ohio this winter, golfers of all ages will be able to work on their games indoors as part of a series of camps and clinics being held by UT men’s and women’s golf coaches.

Men’s Coach Jamie Broce and Women’s Coach Nicole Hollingsworth will provide these opportunities in the Rocket Golf Performance Center inside the Fetterman Training Center.

Clinic participants will have access to state-of-the-art golf facilities in the Fetterman Training Center.

Practice leagues will be offered in four different sessions in December, January and February. The leagues include five one-hour sessions with six golfers per session. Individuals ages 23 or older can utilize 10 minutes of flight scope per session.

Clinics for boys and girls ages 10 to 17 will be held Jan. 5 and Feb. 2 from 9 a.m. to noon that will allow participants the opportunity to practice all aspects of their game. Minimum participation in the clinic is seven golfers with the maximum number of 10 participants.

A third option of Rocket Golf 101 for beginners will be held with four sessions in January and February. Sessions will include instructions on partial swing/chipping and full swing/putting with individuals having access to flightscope and video of your golf swing.

The youth golf camps will be for players ages 10 to 17. Dates for the one-day camps that run from 9 a.m. to noon are Dec. 11, 17 and 18; Jan. 14, 15, 28 and 29; and Feb. 4 and 5. The cost is $50 with a minimum of seven and maximum of 10 participants in each session.

“I’m really excited about what opportunities we will be able to offer this year,” Hollingsworth said. “Our facility is top-notch and with a 3,500-square-foot area of putting and chipping surfaces, there is nothing else like it in the area. We are looking forward to having people in our facility and helping them with their golf game.”

“We have a wonderful indoor golf facility at The University of Toledo, and it’s great to be able to utilize it in the winter months,” Broce said. “Whether you are a beginner, junior or experienced golfer, we have a great place to make some positive changes in your game. If golfers come to take advantage of the camps we are offering this winter, they certainly won’t regret it.”

The Rocket Golf Performance Center is part of the Fetterman Training Center, which opened in 2010. The facility includes a 3,500-square-foot chipping and putting green with real course variable elevations. It also possesses a sand-based surface to provide true spin/roll. Multiple hitting areas with removable nets also are included in the area. Rocket golfers have access to a state-of-the-art video/launch monitor area that provides ball flight and putting analysis. The video analysis equipment also will be used.
