Golf Manitoba opens indoor Performance Training Centre

Golf Manitoba announced today the official opening of a state-of-the-art indoor golf performance centre located in the Sport Manitoba building, 145 Pacific Avenue in Winnipeg. The Golf Manitoba Performance Centre features two golf simulators powered by Foresight Sports and a 160-square foot putting green to provide training and coaching opportunities that will assist in growing its player development program.

“The opening of this indoor training facility moves the needle for our player development program,” said Golf Manitoba Executive Director Jared Ladobruk. “We recognized a unique opportunity to add efficiencies and improvements by integrating both golf specific and athlete training in one central location. In addition to that, the Foresight technology provides our coaches with new options and more flexibility that will allow them to assess and train our athletes 12 months of the year.”

In addition to golf specific training, Team Manitoba athletes will continue to access strength and conditioning and nutrition services provided by Sport Manitoba Performance and mental performance services by Attollo Mental Health & Performance.

“With the addition of this high-performance training centre, Golf Manitoba has taken an important step toward helping our association achieve its strategic player development goals,” added Golf Manitoba President Sue Wright-Cassan. “We are now better aligned and equipped to contribute to Golf Canada’s enhanced national player development program that was announced in February of 2022.”

“Sport Manitoba is thrilled to house this new indoor golf training centre,” said Janet McMahon, President & CEO of Sport Manitoba. “The goal of our facility has always been to provide athletic and recreation opportunities to Manitobans, and with this addition, Golf Manitoba will be able to further enhance player development throughout all four seasons.”

The Golf Manitoba Performance Centre was made possible by funding and support from the 2017 Canada Summer Games Legacy Fund, Sport Manitoba, the Alex & Peggy Colonello Foundation, and a private donation from Don & Sandi Janzen.
