Glen Abbey Golf Academy is the first home for the RoboGolfPro in Canada. Lori Heller of Heller Productions is one of the partners behind bringing the RoboGolfPro to Canada. She is looking to partner with more golf courses across the country in hopes of making it more widely available.

Heller’s partner is golf instructor Scott Nei, who helped develop the original RoboGolfPro. Nei, who owns a large golf teaching group called Tour Bound Golf Academy, came across the original inventor at a PGA Merchandise show and used his expertise to develop it into a highly effective golf training tool that teaches people how a proper swing really feels. Because the machine relies on the use of muscle memory, you can see immediate improvements in your golf swing.
Heller arranged to have the 840 pound robot placed in a building she had constructed at Glen Abbey Golf Club. Now, club members and the public can book lessons on the RoboGolfPro all year long. Lessons cost roughly $200/hour for ClubLink members, $250 for non-members.
Glen Abbey Golf Club is home to the Academies of ClubLink, Golf Canada, the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and Museum, as well as the TaylorMade Performance Lab. Glen Abbey Golf Club will also host the 2015 RBC Canadian Open.
