Golfing enthusiasts, assemble! The Burrow Driving Range at Hazendal has been kitted out with the best in golf tracking technology and it’s about to change the way you think about your short game, and golf in general - guaranteed.

See, The Burrow Driving Range offers cutting-edge practice facilities, including a two-tier driving range with 34 bays facing onto a 300-metre range. These bays are equipped with the latest golf tracking technology for an unparalleled interactive experience, provided by one of the world’s foremost driving-range tracking technology brands, InRange.

What exactly is InRange?

We’re glad you asked because this is some seriously exciting stuff. In short, InRange is a radar-based, smart-shot tracking system that allows for amazingly accurate golf-ball tracking from every bay on the Hazendal range.

Golf tracking technology at The Burrow Driving Range

The InRange sensors can track dozens of balls hit simultaneously. Each from a different point of origin, and provide detailed data on speed, trajectory, path, landing point and more. This makes for a compelling and accurate virtual course experience.

By utilising this state-of-the-art radar technology, it revolutionises the practice experience for serious golfers, novices, and “I'm just playing for the fun of it” guests alike. How so? Well see, there are a variety of applications within the InRange golf tracking technology bouquet. These include:

InRange App

This application is geared towards more serious, seasoned golfers who want to take their training experience to the next level. With the support of the purpose-built application and InRange-enhanced training touchscreen platforms at The Burrow Driving Range, these fine folks can enjoy access to various practice modes (e.g. free practice, and tee & targe), as well as interesting challenges (e.g. longest drive, closest to the pin or shrinking target).

The system allows for ball conversion that converts players’ range ball distances to premium ball distances. As well as targets that scale according to each player’s skill level. It also provides invaluable shot data, club and session summaries, strokes gained, as well as scoring and dispersion charts. All thanks to the superb golf tracking technology utilised, of course. Not to mention live range leaderboards, of course.

As such, the InRange App allows for better focus and more structured practice sessions with the option of competing against yourself or others. This is really practice, made perfect.

InRange+™

InRange+™ is ideal for fun-loving golfers and non-golfers who want some novel entertainment that will sharpen their skills. Inrange+ multiplayer entertainment bays pave the way for an immersive gaming experience. These can be booked for group social activities like birthday parties, team building occasions, etc.

This is all thanks to skill-level settings and game-play elements that enable novices to compete with avid golfing buddies and family members on an even playing field.

Inrange+™ Courses

Inrange+™ Courses is something quite magical really. It creates a playing environment in which single golfers or groups of players can “play” some of the most iconic holes and golf courses the world over without ever stepping foot outside of the conveniently situated range. How incredible is that?

What this means is that even if it’s raining cats and dogs in the middle of a Cape Town winter, you and your friends can make your way to The Burrow Driving Range to play a few super-exciting holes without any lost balls, slow play or wet slacks in the mix.

Plus, you can fit it into a busy schedule as well. There are very few golfers who can squeeze in a round of 9 or 18 holes (or even just a couple of holes, at that) in the middle of the week but thanks to the speed of play associated with Inrange+™ Courses, this is now a possibility.

What else makes practising at Hazendal so special?

We boast the best short game facility in Cape Town.

Because we understand that not every player wants their entire experience to be tech-driven, we also offer a large practice putting green, several chipping greens, a 90-metre pitching area, greenside practice bunkers and a fairway bunker. Our goal is to give you the opportunity to sharpen every aspect of your game in one place.
