The state of the game of golf is strong at Lyman Golf, as they welcome John R. Dipollina to the golfing staff.
From his professional affiliations and background to his club-fitting expertise, Dipollina brings a wealth of experience to Lyman.
At The Golf Center at Lyman Orchards, he will facilitate a broad mix of family-centric, all-season events on the Apple Nine; he’ll enhance the women’s instructional program and the PGA Junior League system, and he’ll broaden the focus on encouraging junior golfers to get out on the course.
“We are very excited to welcome John to our roster of golf professionals,” said Jason Beffert, general manager, Lyman Orchards Golf Club. “His talent, skill and enthusiasm are infectious, and we look forward to his leading our team at The Golf Center.”
Dipollina was most recently on the staff at The Hartford Golf Club and has taught the game at Birchwood Country Club in Westport and at Pine Valley Golf Club in Southington.
The par-29 Apple Nine Course has been honored by the American Society of Golf Course Architects with its inaugural “Design Excellence” award and ranks as the top par three course in Connecticut and 10th overall in New England by New England Golf Monthly magazine.
The Apple Nine wraps around one of Golf Range Association of America’s Top 50 Stand Alone driving ranges in the U.S. and provides a unique learning and playing experience for golfers of all ages and abilities.
At the Gold Center, target greens and simulated fairways provide players with a game-authentic practice experience, more than 40 stalls on both sports turf and natural grass allow players to work all the clubs in their bags. The Golf Center also features a putting green and a short game practice area.
Lyman Golf features two championship courses designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Gary Player.
