Vale Resort Selected as Top Academy
The Vale Resort in South Wales has been named as one the UK’s top three academies in the Association of British Travel Agent’s Golf 2012 publication.
Taking the number two spot, between the Faldo Golf Institute in Hertfordshire in first and Lincolnshire’s Woodhall Spa in third, The Vale was commended for its ‘enviable’ range of academy facilities. These include a covered driving range, practice putting greens and a short game practice area. Special mention is also made of The Vale’s futuristic swing training set up. According to the ABTA: “Tech geeks will enjoy the video swing analysis with the on-screen GASP system that makes it easier to correct faults”. Other highlights are Vale’s specialist fitting centre and junior academy.
Along with its golfing features, The Vale is also home to a four-star hotel and recently renovated spa facilities.
