Garden of the Gods Resort & Club: Discover Your Best Golf Swing

Flag at Kissing Camels - Garden of the Gods Resort & Club

Do you truly understand how the body functions in relation to the golf swing? Are you dealing with performance limiting muscle tightness, joint immobility, chronic pain or injury? Is your fitness level impacting your swing? Are you struggling with the mental aspects of your game?

The Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) certified professionals at Strata Integrated Wellness Spa at Garden of the Gods Resort and Club stand ready to help you to understanding how your body and mind function in relation to your golf swing.

Physical limitations in a player’s body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury. Therefore, it is imperative to educate golfers on the “Body-Swing Connection” – understanding how the body functions during the golf swing.

A great swing comes down to efficient, well-timed movement throughout the body over the whole course of the swing. Restrictions, weakness, or imbalances in one part of the body can cause a chain reaction of poor movement patterns that can result in a mis-hit, inconsistent swing, or potential injury. The Strata team of golf professionals can not only identify these weaknesses, but also prescribe exercises to correct and strengthen them to create efficiency and consistency in your swing.

The goal of the golf performance team at Strata Integrated Wellness Spa is to get you moving better, playing longer, staying healthier, and building a swing that your body can manage.

A therapist doesn’t need to know how to coach the swing, they just need to understand the implications that changes in the body could have on the swing.

A swing coach doesn’t need to know how to improve mobility in the thoracic spine, they just need to know if that’s what’s keeping the golfer from doing what they want to in their swing.

It’s takes the collaborative effort and integrated approach of the TPI certified professionals at Strata Integrated Wellness Spa to develop the player’s body, mind and swing.
