Synthetic Turf International will be showcasing the fine work of our dealers each week in this space. Our first featured application shows off some of the great work from STI of Atlanta at the Blue Giraffe Golf Institute.
Bobby Baughn and the folks from STI of Atlanta recently completed their part of the renovation of the Blue Giraffe Golf Institute training facility in Tucker, Georgia. The facility, which is part of Heritage Golf Links, features 27 holes of championship golf, a lighted practice range and the area featured here, the dedicated instruction house complete with seven active hitting bays. Heritage was named one of Golf Digest’s “Best New Courses” in 1996.
The Institute is part of a larger effort to provide golfers across all skill levels the opportunity to learn the game from some of the best teaching professionals in the world through their expertise and access to the latest technology.
“The team at Synthetic Turf International of Atlanta has helped the Blue Giraffe Golf Institute create a state of the art golf and training facility in Tucker, Georgia. The flooring system that STI has installed makes the BGGI one of the top golf Institutes in the country and allows us to provide players of all skill levels with a TOUR like experience,” said Kevin McDonough, VP Sales & Marketing for Blue Giraffe. “Whether you are a beginner or a member of the PGA TOUR, players will be able to experience the ultimate in TOUR level instruction.”
Blue Giraffe will also utilize the Institute to host Junior Golf Programs, as well as to foster the development of current and future TOUR caliber players. The Institute will also be the headquarters for the 40 professional golfers Blue Giraffe Sports Management represents, including such PGA Tour professionals as Stuart Appleby, Heath Slocum, Billy Hurley III, Paul Goydos, Jhonattan Vegas and LPGA Tour pros Lexi Thompson and Julieta Granada.
