Dom Pedro Hotels & Golf Collection has unveiled its new €120k golf academy during a gala opening ahead of the Portugal Masters.

Opened by Lucas Bjerregaard at the Dom Pedro Pinhal Golf Course, it will be home to Titleist’s regional fitting centre, offering the latest swing analysis technology, plus junior development and fitness programmes.

The top-of-the-range facility offers the latest equipment, including TrackMan 4, to provide invaluable feedback during lessons and custom fittings within the new Titleist Regional Fitting Centre.

It will also be home to a dedicated TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) Certified Instructor offering biomechanical advice tailored to each individual golf swing and providing personalised drills to improve performance.

• Algarve on top of the world

Growing the game remains a key focus for Dom Pedro and it has partnered with GolPhin to help drive participation in the region. Originally started in Scotland, the brand develops equipment designed specifically for beginners aged 3-12, which will be available onsite to help junior golfers get off to the best possible start with the right clubs and first-class tuition

Golf lessons are available now and can be taken in small groups or individually. For those under 21, there will also be several weekly after-school classes as well as weekend tuition, in addition to a schedule of courses and programs that will be run by the onsite professionals throughout the year.

“We have established ourselves as one of Europe’s premier golf destinations for the calibre of our courses, but now we can offer first-class tuition too. Better still, we can now encourage juniors into the game, whether tourists or local Portuguese kids. We cannot wait to get up and running – maybe we’ll even uncover a European Tour player of the future.”
