Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, Calif., has added RoboGolfPro – the only swing training system that allows golfers to “discover’’ their ideal swing to its golf portfolio.
RoboGolfPro allows golfers to instantly feel their perfect swing by taking them through the correct movements with the help of video and mechanical training. It’s a great way to help golfers know how to get the correct swing positions and to feel those positions.
Omni La Costa is the robotic training system’s only location in Southern California.
“The technology that goes into the RoboGolfPro system is an essential element to the holistic approach to game improvement that is fundamental to the Omni La Costa Golf Performance Institute,” said AJ Avoli, director of the Omni La Costa GPI. “There is nothing else like the RoboGolfPro.”
The RoboGolfPro swing trainer was developed by Scot W.R. Nei, who has been successful as a tour player, equipment designer and instructor. The robot-like arms on his RoboGolfPro take the student through the motion of the perfect swing, creating the “aha moment” by combining the feel and understanding of what the swing should be.
“RoboGolfPro allows the instructor to get inside of the golfer’s mind, to create cognitive development and motor learning patterns that have instant success,” said Nei, who has joined the Omni La Costa GPI staff as a guest instructor. “It is ideal for RoboGolfPro to be part of the curriculum at Omni La Costa, where so many exciting things are happening in golf instruction.”
Led by Avoli, the Omni La Costa GPI offers a combination of physical, mental and high-tech programs designed to help golfers of all levels improve and gain a better understanding of their games. Among the other technology on hand is state-of-the-art computer technology that aids in visual learning, along with proven teaching tools such as the mySwing 3D Motion Capture System, Trackman and FlightScope launch monitor systems.
An eight-acre practice facility has recently been renovated for the resort’s Golf Performance Institute, and features both grass and high-quality mat hitting surfaces. The short-game area boasts both an 8,000-square-foot target green and 10,000-square-foot putting green.
This summer the Omni La Costa GPI will debut a golf-centric psychological program being developed for the resort by the world-renowned Chopra Center, which is also located on property.
One of 11 Omni golf resorts coast-to-coast, Omni La Costa is recognized as one of the historic golf destinations in the country, with two distinctive courses. The Champions Course and Legends Course were renovated in 2011 and 2013, respectively, by Pascuzzo & Pate Golf Course Design, adding length and enhanced strategic values, while upholding the integrity of the original 1960s Dick Wilson layouts.
