Students will be able to chat with the school’s PGA of Canada professionals about their games, the pros’ philosophies and golf in general.

Meanwhile, Colin Orr, the schools director, posted the holiday schedule yesterday.

“On Dec. 24, Dec. 26, Dec. 31 and Jan. 1 the school is open but the instructors are not here. On Dec. 25 the OAC is closed,” said Orr.

When players drop in to practice, they are now able to use the new 1,000 sq.-ft. putting surface.

Orr says for safety reasons that he reminds everyone that the putting green is for chipping and putting. There really should be no shots flying more than six or seven feet in the air and flopping shots is dangerous and can lead to injuries.

“If you want to try this shot a professional must be with you and there must be no one on the green,” Orr said. “You may always try this shot on the mats with the net as a background.”

The OAC’s Winter Golf School’s classroom features more than 20 hitting stations. Players receive full access to video and computer analysis, which is projected onto a 50-inch HD flat screen TV, and other innovative teaching aids.

“This year we have installed new netting and along with the larger putting surface. We’re also using the 3BaysGSA PRO swing motion analyzer for the first time. The 3Bays device attaches to the top of the club and sends data via Bluetooth to the instructor’s IPad.”

The OAC’s director of golf adds that members of the Executive Golf virtual golf club are always invited to ask about lesson packages designed for them.

The Ottawa Athletic Club is located at 2525 Lancaster Rd.
