WICHITA — Don Farquhar isn't quitting his day job as director of operations for Rolling Hills Country Club, but he and Rich Maril are starting a new business to help golfers improve their games.
"We've both been teaching a long time," Farquhar says.
What pros can offer is great, he says, but then he and Maril ran across the GolfTEC franchise and thought that could further help.
The business uses high-speed video cameras and motion-analysis software.
Farquhar calls it a "fact-based analysis of a person's swing."
"We just thought this was a good market for something like that," he says. "We have so many golfers who really want to get better."
The business will be in about 2,000 square feet at 3101 N. Rock Road behind Hooters.
GolfTEC pricing will depend on what packages customers purchase.
The Denver-based franchise has 140 stores nationally.
Maril will be the one running day-to-day operations here while Farquhar concentrates on Rolling Hills.
Look for GolfTEC to have a soft opening in mid-February and a grand opening in early March.
