Le Golf du Kempferhof

Connected practice zone


Golf players often have considerable differences in ability when practising and playing on the course proper. It is hard to begin playing golf by taking on a full 18-hole course. Which is why it has been our priority to set up a new training zone over the last year.
 
Supervised by Alejandro Reyes, the greenkeeper for the Ryder Cup in 2018 and 2022, the new practice zone has been constructed according to PGA Tour requirements to provide our club with this exceptional facility.

THE ZONE IS DIVIDED IN 3 PARTS:

  • A 1,000-m² putting green lit at night
     
  • A 600-m² chipping green surrounded by 3 bunkers, including a replica of a Scottish-style bunker
     
  • A 3-hole course with distances of 50 m to 70 m. What makes this small course special is that it can take on the role of a school and practice course for beginners and a wedging zone for more experienced players.

THE PRACTICE ZONE HAS BEEN TOTALLY REDESIGNED WITH:

  • A conventional practice zone on synthetic T-line / 20 stations
     
  • A grassed area (depending on the weather) / 30 stations
     
  • A lighted undercover area with phone and tablet chargers / 10 stations
     
  • A studio equipped with Trackman and Smart2Move technology (training and TaylorMade club fitting) unique in France

TrackMan Range

The cherry on the cake is this technology new to France: the Trackman Range!

The flight of your ball will no longer hold any secrets for you! With this technology, the Kempferhof’s practice zone will be fully connected. With your smartphone, you’ll be able to analyse every shot, track your progress and play games alone or with others.

The advent of the Trackman Range is fully in line with our intention to provide fun, easy-access  games for beginners and very accurate technical data for experienced players.



Leo Mathard, professional golfer:
  • « This practice zone is really amazing. It is unique in the region and I would even venture to say that it is unique in France. Even in the United States, it is rare to find such professional quality and variety. The Trackman Range allows everyone to collect basic data on the trajectories and distances of their shots according to the clubs used and, most importantly perhaps, to improve their game. The quality of the putting green is the same as what we have at the French National Golf Course (it is overseen by Alejandro Reyes, the course manager and hero of the Ryder Cup 2018) and the Saint Andrews-style bunker is great fun! When it comes to the 3-hole course, it’s excellent for working on your wedge shots! Only the Kempferhof can offer a training zone like this »

Arnaud Abbad, professionnal golfer:
  • «The 3-hole course complements the 18-hole course built by Van Hagge in 1990, which is one of the most beautiful golf courses in Europe. It is totally in line with the original design with a small green on an island. It’s a perfect replica of the jewel designed by the American architect 30 years ago. As a player, I’ve never seen a training zone as complete as this one, from the practice area to the 3-hole course and the short game zone. As a coach, the quality and upkeep of this entire facility are a real delight in helping our students to improve their game»
Laurent Cabanne, our Head Pro :
  • « It’s a dream to coach and work in a place like this. We can play all the shots that we encounter on the full-sized course in the practice zone. All the measuring tools are there for us to run extremely accurate analyses. There’s no better place in France for training. It’s an honour for me to be in charge of a training centre like this »
