GolfTec Coming To Ottawa
Indoor golf learning franchise GolfTec will be expanding their
operations to Canada’s National Capital Region. The centre will
be opening at 2672 Lancaster Drive.
Leading the way as Centre Manager will be Sean Joyce, formerly
of The Marshes Golf Club.
The Class A member of the
PGA of Canada was the 2012
Assistant Professional of the
Year in the PGA of Ottawa Zone
and he is looking forward to
the new opportunity. He’ll be
joined in the coaching role at
GolfTec Ottawa by Joe DiFlorio,
a PGA of Canada member
who previously worked at the
Greyhawk Golf Club.
GolfTec was founded in 1995 and has grown to some 180
locations around North America. They provide a year-round coaching
environment. Joyce says the new centre will occupy just over 3,000 square
feet and will include four bays when complete plus a short game
area. “We’ll start with two fully operational left hand/right hand bays.

The other bays will be completed as far as construction and when
things start to grow we will look to fully outfit those two bays as well.”
Having two bays will allow both Sean and Joe to run their own areas
with plans to bring on another coach as the demand grows. Each
bay will be outfitted with two
cameras, a Foresight Launch
monitor, propriety motion
and a computer to run it all.
For those not familiar
with GolfTec Joyce says the
franchise provides what he
feels is a very effective way
for people to get better at golf.
“An entire coaching package
is involved in what GolfTec
offers. It really is for the long-term improvement of the golf game.”
The system sees students get lessons then practice with
feedback and comparison provided in a number of ways, even
online storage of lessons for reference.
GolfTec Ottawa should be open in late June.
