The grand opening of a new learning center at the Useless Bay Golf and Country Club is set for 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 13.

The learning center, named after former PGA pro and South Whidbey resident Herb Magnusson, is adjacent to the driving range. Magnusson will be present at the ceremony.

The practice facility includes three covered and heated hitting stations. There is also a private hitting station specifically tailored for golf instruction.

The practice facility’s roof will give members shelter from foul weather conditions and allow them to continue practicing throughout the year.

There will also be video equipment and launch monitors in the instruction room to be used for accurate club fitting and swing feedback, according to a letter from the club.

The funds to build the structure were generated by Useless Bay Golf and Country Club members.

The learning center is exclusive to members of the country club.
