The Haggin Oaks Golf Complex boasts two championship golf courses, a world-class teaching facility with over 15 golf professionals, more than 10 different junior, senior, group and private programs and a lighted driving range that includes over 100 stalls, five practice greens, and two bunkers.
The project is designed to analyze distance in golf and gather perspectives from the worldwide golf community
The United States Golf Association (USGA) and The R&A have launched a comprehensive project to analyze distance in golf and gather perspectives from the worldwide golf community.
The Distance Insights project will examine distance through a multi-pronged approach that includes global stakeholder engagement, third-party data review and primary research. Focus groups and discussion forums will play an important role in the project, to secure a broad range of perspectives throughout golf.
“The topic of increased distance and its effects on the game have been discussed for well over a century. We believe that now is the time to examine this topic through a very wide and long lens, knowing it is critical to the future of the game,” said Mike Davis, CEO of the USGA. “We look forward to delving deeply into this topic and learning more, led by doing right by golf, first and foremost.”
Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A, said, “Distance in golf is a complex issue which is widely debated at all levels of the sport. It is important that we collate all of the relevant data and hear the many different perspectives on this issue that exist in the international golf community. We intend to conduct this process openly, comprehensively and promptly and will work with all of the key stakeholders to ensure we have a fully rounded view of distance and its implications.”
Stakeholder groups invited to participate in the project include amateur and professional golfers, worldwide professional golf tours, golf course owners and operators, golf equipment manufacturers, golf course architects, golf course superintendents and others.
Among the many topics to be explored, the organizations will seek distance-related data on pace of play, golf course construction and maintenance practices, the evolution of equipment, golf course design and player enjoyment and participation.
The USGA and The R&A will engage various golf industry stakeholders through 2018, with plans to deliver a report in 2019.

The Alister MacKenzie design promises an incredible test of golf skills.
The MacKenzie Golf Course is, without a doubt, the player’s course at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex. Designed by the mastermind behind Augusta National and measuring a respectable 6,991-yards from the back tees, this 73-year-old track, originally designed by world renowned architect, Alister MacKenzie, is a true test of golf for the low handicapper.
In keeping with the traditions of growing the game and providing the best learning environment for players of all levels, Haggin Oaks also offers a more flexible, beginner-friendly golf course in the Arcade Creek layout. Here players can choose to play 9 or 18 holes and are treated to a golf experience that provides fewer hazards and less difficulty than the championship Alister MacKenzie course.
Haggin Oaks is located 3645 Fulton Ave in Sacramento.
Call 916-808-2525 or click HERE to book your tee time for Memorial Day, May 28, 2018.
Now you can patriotically watch your golf ball fly with the new Chrome Soft Stars and Stripes Truvis Golf Ball; the same great ball with a new, American look.
The highlights of this Chrome Soft Truvis Stars and Stripes edition includes its obviously fabulous design, but also its groundbreaking new Graphene Dual SoftFast Core. The new core makes for a fast yet soft-feeling ball so it launches higher with a lower spin off the tee. This is great for long distance hits.
Specially designed for visibility and focus, not going too overly heavy with the pattern, but enough to give it some pizazz. All Chrome Soft Golf Balls are made in the USA; this one just happens to be representing the USA too!
Another feature includes the thin ultra-soft Tour Urethane Cover that gives it the Tour-proven performance but also just feels fantastic while providing shot-control. That’ll save you points! Everyone loves a little forgiveness in mis-hits too and this ball will keep on forgiving.

Learning to play better golf is a commitment. Schedule a free 15-minute game assessment with PGA Professional, Steve Olsen at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex and get your golf game on track.
For a limited time, PGA Professional Steve Olsen wants to meet with you for a complimentary 15-minute game assessment lesson at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex. Get your golf game on track this season! Call 916-808-2531 to schedule your free 15-minute game assessment today.
Steve has been a PGA Professional since 1996, and he is committed to helping you achieve a greater enjoyment of your golf game. Whether you are just being introduced to the game or training for high-level tournament play, Steve Olsen has the knowledge and skill set to help you realize your golfing goals.
Steve believes that a strong emphasis should be placed on pre-swing fundamentals. The proper grip, aim, stance, balance, posture, alignment and ball position is the foundation and basis of any good golf swing. Steve explains his pre-swing fundamental philosophy in this video.
Golf Tip: Pre-swing Fundamentals - YouTube
According to Steve, “Educating the student on the how’s and why’s and not just the do’s and dont’s is fundamental to my philosophy. Understanding the cause and effect relationships that occur with your golf swing will help you become a better player sooner. The more knowledge you have, the better equipped you are to handle the challenges of this game.”
Steve has a deep understanding of how people take in and process new information. He describes it best. “People learn new tasks differently. As your instructor, it is my responsibility that you understand the message in the most concise method possible. There are three forms of learning: HEAR IT, SEE IT, FEEL IT. Understand that the fastest way for you to improve is to stimulate all three forms of learning; auditory, visual and kinesthetic.”
Swing development or change requires practice along with professional guidance to keep you on the path to better golf. Practicing correctly with prescribed swing drills will help ensure this is accomplished. Practice creates repetition and repetition brings about change. If you are not currently satisfied with your practice routine and if you are not seeing the improvement that you want when you hit the golf course, then now is the time to come in and schedule your complimentary 15-minute game assessment with Steve. He looks forward to working with you. Call 916-808-2531 to schedule your appointment today.
Steve believes there is no one particular way to swing a golf club. Strength, flexibility, body type, and athletic ability, along with determination and desire, are important components that will allow you to become the best golfer you can be. Let Steve Olsen help you achieve your goals.
This promotional offer is available to new students only. Offer expires July 31, 2018.
Steve Olsen is a PGA Professional at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, CA located at 3645 Fulton Avenue in Sacramento, CA

When do we play?
Wednesdays at 6 pm – beginning May 30 Thursdays at 9 am – beginning May 31
Let us know if you’ll be able to join us on Wednesdays or Thursdays – or if you would like to be added to our email distribution list. Contact our Women’s Ambassador, Janet Vorwerck, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 916-808-4586.
We play on the short, executive 9-hole golf course and meet afterward in Maloney’s Grille to make new friends and have a drink or bite to eat – and laugh!
