From july 2022it will be possible to make some swings in the middle of nature a few kilometers from the center of the city of Château-Gontier (Mayenne)in saint strong.
A former professional golf player, Jean-Marie Kulais about to open a golf practice at the Epinay estate.
I bought this farm in August 2020. I have family in the area and my mother and grandmother were born in Azé. I was looking for a quiet place, with a course that suited me and close to the city, so that the golfers could come to hit balls between noon and two.
This golf teacher, who played at a high level between 1997 and 2000, wants to open a “training structure linked to all the golf shots that can be found on a course”.
Train future golfers
First, he will open a driving range.
“It is a place dedicated to training. We come to hit balls with targets and distances. I want to reach golfers but also the general public, with affordable prices. From Château-Gontier, for the time being, in Mayenne, you have to go to Laval, to Sarthe in Sablé or to Maine-et-Loire in Champigné. To practice, it is a long way”, says Jean-Marie Kula.
For example, it will take count between €7.50 and €15 according to age for a daily ticket.
I will ensure the loan of clubs for people who want it. The buckets of balls will be at will. If someone wants to spend the whole day on the driving range, they can do it for the same price.
He also wants to ride a golf academy for adults and one kids golf schoolIn autumn.
“The goal is to train future golfers, introduce them to the discovery of this sport. »
With the driving range, Jean-Marie Kula will install a club house of about 60 mtwo in an old farmhouse, conditioned by some works.
“There will be a bar, some snacks, restrooms. From then on, I will have a seminar room to reach the works councils. »
Several projects in seven hectares
After this first step, Jean-Marie Kula wants to develop his project with several spaces spread over the seven hectares that he has.
“Then I’ll have a synthetic putting green, in September if all goes well. It’s basically a practice green where you can play all year long. It requires precision and concentration. »
In the medium term, account create a compact course from nine holesa chipped green “to make approach shots and work out of the bunker” and a training zone for the wedge, that is, the work of the amplitude that is given to the swing.
It only remains to wait a few months to discover this sports venue that its creator wants to be “friendly and accessible to all”.
