According to Duffy, next year will bring some major expansion for TAYLORMADE R9 MAX irons to the GPC. Plans include extending the number of covered bays to 28, four of which will have roller doors and will be used for advanced training Ping G15 Hybrid, using swing analysis and virtual reality. New floodlighting is to be introduced to cut the glare from the present system. The lights in the roof area will be degraded from 1000 watts to 300, and lights will be inserted in the ground.
The GPC is used by Scottish National Golf Squads. And the St. Andrews Links Junior Golf Association (SALJGA) uses the GPC as part of the extensive training program in place for local children. 350 children and 65 volunteer (all level 1 PGA accredited) take part TAYLORMADE TP MB irons. British Open Champion Paul Lawrie is Honorary President, and Ben Hogan Golf donated Lorries full of equipment (although the company is no longer involved with the program).
The program and practice facilities appear to be working: Two of the SALJGA boys have played in the Dunhill Links Championship with New Golf Clubs. The short game area, with its undulating surfaces, is especially designed for links golf. There is a chipping area, three bunkers (including one that is a replica of the Road Bunker), and a green that was once part of the Eden Course.
