The Albatros Golf Performance Centre – the first such facility to receive European Tour Performance Institute status – was opened in 2010, and offers a variety of game improvement programmes.
These include video analysis using TrackMan software, bespoke drills from qualified instructors, personalised tuition, looking at all aspects of the game, and club fitting. These unique training facilities are overseen by Jean-Jacques Rivet, the highly respected Head of Biomechanics and Sport Performance, and the ETPI’s leading biomechanics expert for the future development of ETPI facilities across the world. Rivet is assisted by the acclaimed teaching professional Alain Alberti, Head Coach of the David Leadbetter Golf Academy, and together this dynamic duo, along with their team at Terre Blanche, have created something unique in the golfing world for both professionals and amateurs to enjoy.
On-site technicians provide a full repair and fitting service, ensuring members and guests alike have top-of-the-range equipment available as and when they require it.
The Biomecaswing Centre

It enables golfers of all levels to improve the performance and understanding of their golf swing in order to quickly bring their game up to the level they desire.
