Skyline Golf Course gets simulator; youth clinics planned

Nick and Martie Vavoudis have donated a SkyTrak Golf Simulator projection studio system with full cage at Skyline Golf Course.

The donation is made in the spirit of providing a free of charge teaching tool for children learning to play golf or are on the Wahkiakum HS Golf Team.

Nick and Martie collaborated with the course to donate and install a fully surrounded golf simulator, installation of electronic equipment and the software to provide professional results.

The Skyline Golf Simulator Studio is a teaching tool that within seconds of a golfer hitting into the screen, the information is projected onto the screen and gives them a vast amount of information on their swing. Among other visual information, it projects the player's shot direction, with a flight path line, (like on TV), and shows how far the ball carried in the air, rolled out, how high, ball speed, spin direction and speed. The software keeps player information by club and tracks averages and more.

People can call Skyline to reserve a session.

Also, 13-year veteran coach Nick will continue to provide a free summer golf clinic for area kids on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting June 22, 10 a.m. for beginners and 11 a.m. for intermediates.

Call Skyline to reserve a place in the summer clinic at 360-795-0115; enrollment is limited.
