PGA Ocean's 4 advances in its digitalization process by incorporating Trackman technology at the Academy

  • With the recent installation of the Trackman radar, the Academy positions itself as one of the most technologically advanced in the country                                                                                           
  • The Academy is directed by professor and PGA of America member Ivan Merino, who has a vast experience in teaching golf.

Grupo Piñero, through its Bahia Principe Golf division, takes another step forward in digitalization and modernization by incorporating the latest technological tools to the PGA Ocean's 4 Golf Academy in Playa Nueva Romana, the second PGA of America-affiliated golf course in Latin America and the third in the world outside the United States.

One of the novelties presented by the golf academy is the recent incorporation of Trackman technology, an advanced ball flight monitor that provides players with accurate data about their swing and ball trajectory, which stands out for being the most advanced technology available today. This advancement has become an essential tool for golf teachers, allowing students of all levels to improve their skills and performance in the game.

In addition, through this alliance with the Professional Golfers Association of America, Bahia Principe Golf brand and its PGA Ocean's 4 courses aim to guarantee users high standards of excellence in all areas of the operation with a view to promoting the game of golf and further increasing the family of golf fans around the world, through the implementation of tools that encourage easier and faster learning.

Thanks to this synergy, the Academy relies on the presence of Ivan Merino, a professional member of the PGA of America, with more than 20 years of experience in training golfers around the world, working in prestigious major clubs like Los Cerros and La Palma Polo Club in Ecuador or La Mirada in California. The partnership with PGA of America not only enriches the Academy's educational offerings, but also provides players of all types and levels, both uninitiated and experienced, with the rare opportunity to receive direct, personalized instruction from a teacher with an outstanding track record in elite golf.

Carlos de Linares, general manager of PGA Ocean's 4, expressed: "At the new PGA Academy, our commitment is to provide golfers of all levels with a unique, fun and technologically advanced experience. The Trackman has a wealth of resources such as games, challenges, and world-class virtual courses. Likewise, our alliance with PGA of America and innovative teaching methodology offer the best environment to learn and improve your game."
