Cordillera Ranch Set to Open State-of-the-Art Golf Performance Center at Cordillera Ranch
Facility to Feature Hitting Bays with Flightscope Launch Monitors, Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate
(BOERNE, Texas) – Cordillera Ranch – the Hill Country’s premier luxury golf community – is nearing completion of its Golf Performance Center at Cordillera Ranch and poised to become one of the top instruction facilities in the state.
Designed by renowned architect Jim Terrian, the Golf Performance Center at Cordillera Ranch will feature two bays on the west end of the club’s Practice Park. Each bay – sophisticatedly constructed by industry leader Tim Cutshall – will have a Flightscope Launch Monitor, which provides an innovative combination of 3D Doppler Tracking and image processing. Cutshall, who was recently featured in LINKS Magazine, installed the radar so that it integrates with camera and video data, and provides instructors and students launch characteristics of each shot.
Each bay will also have a three-camera system integrated with the Flightscope Launch Monitor to provide instant feedback on every shot and help instructors develop a custom plan for improvement. Flightscope technology will also improve the Cordillera Ranch instruction staff’s club fitting capabilities.
The Golf Performance Center at Cordillera Ranch is scheduled to open later this spring.
In addition, the Golf Performance Center at Cordillera Ranch will be one of the few facilities in Texas to offer the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate. The flagship swing analysis system provides a unique combination of the state-of-the-art pressure plate technology (Balance Plate) and a highly-advanced force plate. This enables instructors to study detailed foot pressure data and center of pressure patterns. The 3D Motion Plate also provides horizontal and vertical force measurements of the amount of torque and ground reaction forces generated during each swing. This data is invaluable information for analysis throughout the golf swing as the ground is the source of power and energy in the swing. The 3D data is perfectly synchronized with high-speed video images and Flightscope Launch Monitor technology.
“We’re adding the finishing touches to the Golf Performance Center at Cordillera Ranch and eagerly awaiting its unveiling to our members,” says Director of Instruction Bryan Gathright. “All of this incredible technology, combined with our instructors’ passion for making our members better players, certainly makes the future of golf instruction at Cordillera Ranch exciting.”
Set on pristine land in the Texas Hill Country, Cordillera Ranch boasts a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course that meanders through valleys and oak-covered terrain. Many holes offer views of the Guadalupe River Valley and feature strategic bunkering, craggy limestone canyons and thought-provoking risk-reward shots. The Dallas Morning News ranked the Cordillera Ranch golf course fourth in its Texas Golf 2018 ranking of the state’s best layouts, and listed the par-3 16th hole among the state’s “Best” and “Most Beautiful” golf holes.
Situated 30 minutes northwest of San Antonio, Cordillera Ranch boasts 0.25-acre villas, one- to 10-plus acre estates, including valley-view, golf course and Guadalupe River frontage, as well as hilltop home sites. Cordillera Ranch’s seven on-site, resort-style amenity clubs – Golf, Tennis and Swim, Spa and Athletic, Social, Rod and Gun, Equestrian and River – are all available under one membership. This trailblazing model continues to attract a wide array of buyers from throughout Texas and the United States.
The Cordillera Ranch clubhouse was recently named the Most Beautiful Clubhouse in Texas by Architectural Digest. Community honors continue to roll in as well, as Where to Retire Magazine named Cordillera Ranch one of the “50 Best Master-Planned Communities in the U.S.,” and San Antonio Magazine tabbed it one of the best neighborhoods in the area.
Considered one of the top addresses in the San Antonio area, Cordillera Ranch continues to grow at an impressive pace – with nearly 800 homes completed (and more than 1,200 lot sales) in the community. At final build-out, Cordillera Ranch will total approximately 2,500 homes and preserve 80% of the land in its natural state.
The year 2018 was an exciting and successful one for Cordillera Ranch. The Vista Office and Visitor Center, housing the offices of Cordillera Ranch Realty, DH Investment Company, Pasadera Builders and the Cordillera Ranch POA administration, recently opened. Additionally, the community is constructing the Lodges at Cordillera Ranch, boutique onsite accommodations for property owners and club members’ guests. The first phase of Lodges will include two units with a total of 10 available rooms and are scheduled for completion by Q2 2019.
