Canongate Golf partners with Swingpal online golf instruction

ATLANTA -- To enhance its player development program, Canongate Golf, the Southeast's leading private golf club network, has partnered with the online golf instruction service, Swingpal, to provide online video lessons to members and guests. The new service allows players to upload video of their swing and within 24 hours, have a Canongate Golf instructor provide personalized instructions on ways to improve it. Swingpal's technology gives users access to an entirely web-based video player that they can use to view their swing in slow motion or frame-by-frame, as well as draw swing-plane lines, compare before and after and much more.

As the nation's first branded academy on Swingpal, the engine behind the Golf Channel's SwingFix, players have the ability to work with Canongate's Performance Center instructors from the privacy of their own home, at the office or wherever they may be. Canongate members and their guests can receive personalized instructions and practice drills without having to schedule a private lesson, which offers tremendous convenience.

"We are committed to providing our members and their guests with the latest and most advanced player development and training technology available. This unique partnership offers a new, convenient way for players to work with our highly trained instructors when it best fits their schedule, from the comfort of their own home," said Joe Guerra, president and CEO of Sequoia Golf, Canongate Golf's parent company. "We believe Swingpal's online technology is a game-changer when it comes to how players connect with instructors and we are excited to be the first golf course network to offer this branded solution to our members."

The cost to utilize this service is $15 for Performance Center members and $30 for non-members. Canongate Golf offers a wide selection of player development services to help golfers of all levels improve their game. To learn more about its Performance Center Memberships and services, visit
