Pleasant Hill, Calif. – Contra Costa Country Club in Pleasant Hill, Calif. recently debuted its new Toptracer Range on its practice range. Toptracer Range delivers the same ball-tracking technology (including total distance, carry distance, ball speed and launch angle) that traces the shots of the best players in the game on television. The Contra Costa Country Club powered by Toptracer Range is currently available six days a week for member enjoyment.
With the Contra Costa Toptracer Range members hit Titleist golf balls off of real or synthetic grass and receive instant shot data in the palm of their hand through the Toptracer Range mobile app. Shots are recorded so that golfers can make swing adjustments and immediately see the impact on their golf shots. Through the truly interactive and individualized experience, members of all ages and ability levels can play a variety of fun and skill-based games, compete against friends, see their shots traced, and receive instant data on their own smartphone or tablet.
“We’re thrilled to add this new amenity for our members,” said Michael Rood, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer, Contra Costa Country Club. “Contra Costa is one of only two private clubs in California to provide the Toptracer Range experience to its membership. Now our members, approximately a quarter of which have a single-digit handicap, can truly practice like the pros do.”
The addition of the Toptracer Range is part of the ongoing improvements to Contra Costa’s player development program that began with the Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed practice facility in 2015. The Contra Costa practice facility has everything a golfer needs to work on all aspects of their game. With a 40-yard deep full-grass tee box, extended range area, and 20 spacious hitting stalls, members enjoy plenty of room to sharpen their driver and iron-play skills, while putting and chipping greens and a variety of bunkers and a hard-lie practice area allow for short-game and recovery-shot work. Additional future improvements are planned for the club’s player development program.
Offering one of the finest and purest tests of golf in Northern California, Contra Costa Country Club provides a unique environment that is both family-friendly and socially enriching. The Club has golfers of all skill levels with beginning players able to quickly learn and improve, while also challenging some of the Bay Area’s better players. The Club’s 18-hole golf course was redesigned by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. in 2014-15, creating a modern experience while still fully respecting the 1925 original intent of architect A. Vernon Macan. Meandering through 145 acres of oak, eucalyptus and redwood, the course is framed by dramatic mountain and valley views. Remaining as a long-standing initiative, Contra Costa continues to utilize reclaimed water when irrigating the golf course.
Contra Costa offers a variety of programs available for men, women, seniors, and junior golfers alike. Membership at the club truly offers a priceless investment for a lifetime of enjoyment for members and their entire families. The cornerstone of Contra Costa is the spacious clubhouse; offering spectacular views from atop an oak-shaded knoll with a beautiful pool, pool house and recreation area located nearby. Those interested in becoming a member of Contra Costa Country Club are invited to join the membership waitlist.
