Season One: Bonnie Doon

GolfSpace PlayMaker 6 Challenge Series.

Exclusive and complimentary to Academy members, this is an action-packed journey of golf improvement over 12 weeks at Bonnie Doon Golf Club and virtual Bonnie Doon on TrackMan.

This is a whole new way to improve your game. It’s fun, it’s digital and it’s exclusive to GolfSpace.

Three coaches, three teams. Which coach will lead their players to score the biggest overall improvement? Join us to make it happen.

The PlayMaker 6 Challenge is a world-first concept, exclusive to GolfSpace. Here’s how it works in detail:

  1. Choose your team. Our PGA Coaches each have years of professional experience in every element of Golf.
  2. Play a round of Bonnie Doon Golf Course (the real one!) to set your personal target score and that of your team. We have arranged for exclusive, complimentary use on Thursday July 21st (alternative tee times available if you can’t commit to that date).
  3. Train for 12 weeks. Utilising our PlayMaker 6 coaching philosophy on TrackMan Test Center, virtual Bonnie Doon, the Wedge Calibration Zone and PuttView, your coach will focus on the key opportunities for improvement in your game.
  4. Post a round to our weekly Challenge scoreboards. Earn points for your team and track your personal scores.
  5. The Grand Finale – On Thursday October 13th, play Bonnie Doon Golf Course once more to decide the winner of the Challenge.

Which team will take you to the top of your game?

Up until July 21st, our PGA coaches will be recruiting team members with a series of online posts showing off their coaching styles and providing drills and tips covering all six elements of PlayMaker 6:

1. Off The Tee | 2. Approach The Green | 3. Around The Green | 4. Putting | 5. Course Strategy | 6. Mindset

Once you know which way you’re leaning, simply log into your GolfSpace account and join your chosen team in the Memberships section.
