Roy Schwedelson, President, Board of Governors St. Andrews Country Club spoke, "We recognize that due to the economy the golf market continues to tighten. The technological advancements we implemented with our new Golf Performance Center not only provide our members with state-of-the-art teaching facilities and tools, but attracts avid golfers and prospective new members. As the only private country club in our market to offer this facility it furthers our position as one of the 'Best of the Best' clubs in the country."

Schwedelson also announced a year-round Guest Golf Instructor Program that began after the GPC opening with a private golf exhibition with LPGA Tour Professional and St. Andrews' Resident Touring Professional Morgan Pressel and Jim McLean, known for his research on The X-Factor®, 1994 PGA National Teacher of the Year and Jim McLean Golf Schools. Each month St. Andrews Country Club members will have exclusive access to the top teaching professionals as part of the club's commitment to ensuring a unique golf experience.

"The GPC and Guest Golf Instructor Program addresses the need to embrace technology to foster a growing interest in golf.  With V1 video analysis we protect our current member golf program while appealing to a younger generation with its combination of computerized equipment and social media," stated Craig Martin, St. Andrews Country Club COO/GM.  

By bringing in Callaway, V1 and FlightScope, St. Andrews Country Club is the only private country club in South Florida to offer all of these services.  The GPC allows the club to grow as needed and still house all computer equipment and club fitting tools. The professional golf instruction staff can now offer lessons in the GPC, driving range, putting or chipping practice areas or either of the two 36-hole championship courses at the same low price.
