NATICK, Mass – How many times throughout the golf season do you ask yourself: Is it time for a lesson?
Well, if you’re really serious about bringing your game to a new level, then it might be a wise decision to spend quality time at KOHR Golf, which is greater Boston’s premiere practice facility since it opened in 2017.
KOHR Golf has 62 grass-simulating mats and 14 target flags scattered among 12 USGA greens and bunkers. And unlike other ranges that offer questionable yardage markers depending upon the bay, Kohr provides a distance scorecard to help you learn a thing or two about your high fade or new hybrid 4-wood.
Bucket prices range from $12 for 60 balls up to $20 for 120. Discounts are available as are add-ons. For instance, pay $8 more and KOHR offers a meticulous country club-style public putting green to practice those knee knockers.
If golf is your true love, Kohr offers passes on an annual and seasonal basis. A season pass costs $175 per month or $1,450 for the full year (three-month minimum required). You’ll have unlimited access to balls and the putting green from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m., seven days a week.
Likewise, for $275 or $2,275, the annual membership offers everything in the season pass plus reserved bays, private world-class short game facility, exclusive access to private events and clinics, Academy training aids and technology, and discounts on merchandise and lessons.
No range is complete without lesson programs. Bill McInerney, Jr., KOHR Golf’s CEO and Co-Founder, and his team make teaching the cornerstone of what KOHR is all about. The KOHR team includes Daniel Boisvert, Chris Hawley, Drayton Melton, Luke Cantelo, Jud Milan, Dan Moran and Chris Dagostino.
Bill McInerney Jr. has a long, distinguished teaching resume. He’s certified across Titleist’s Performance Institute’s numerous teaching competencies including biomechanics and mental fitness; he’s one of Golf Digest’s Best Teachers in Massachusetts and was awarded Golf Range’s “Top 50 Golf Instructors in America” designation.
McInerney, Jr.’s point-of-difference is his commitment to helping golfers reach their long-term goals – especially with kids starting from age 3 to 17. KOHR has a full-on menu of customizable programming for kids from SNAG Golf and seasonal and training camps to the Elite KOHR Golf Academy for ages 8 through 17.
The Elite KOHR Golf Academy is a one-of-a-kind program for kids who want to make a commitment to golf for the long term.
If admitted, students are evaluated on their playing ability, goals, and time commitment. The KOHR team then crafts each students’ specific training plan which covers the full swing, short game, and on-course management. Unlike other teaching regiments, Elite participants are assigned a golf-specific, personalized physical conditioning regimen.
Also, depending upon the Elite course, KOHR pros monitor students by logging rounds on a daily basis where coaches can then tailor practice sessions to optimize performance.
McInerney and company have turned out champions at every level including three-time PGA Tour winner Brendan Todd.
Todd says, “Bill McInerney is the most disciplined and hard-working golf coach I’ve ever seen,” said Todd via post on his website. “With his help I have improved practice habits and developed a stronger mind, which contributed greatly towards me capturing my first PGA Tour victory!”
KOHR Golf, a state-of-the-art driving range and practice center, is located in Natick, just off Route 9 before the Framingham Mall.
