Here’s the public course answer to all of the fancy indoor/outdoor learning centers that are popping up at private courses in the area.
Rotella Memorial director of golf Michael Laudien recently had the course’s learning center enclosed with awnings, providing a spot for players who are looking to get a head start on the upcoming season to get some work done with a measure of protection from the elements. While the flakes have been flying, he’s been able to spend lesson time with a number of students.
Lessons have to be arranged in advance via email. You can reach Laudien at Rotellapro@aol.com. The plan is to have the center open for golfers who just want to hit a few balls when it’s not in use for instruction.
