About Us

Mike Callaway, right, SwingTEK owner and teaching professional, and Ken Allard, left, PGA Professional.SwingTEK Golf Academy is an indoor golf training facility in Troy, Michigan. Founded by long time Detroit area entrepreneur, Mike Callaway, and local PGA professional, Ken Allard, the 6,800 square foot facility features five hitting bays, a sand bunker, a pitching and chipping area, a golf simulator and a 900 square foot putting green.

Mike Callaway, a USGTF golf professional says, “We have developed right here in Michigan a very unique state-of-the-art indoor golf training facility. Visitors to the Academy can have their swings analyzed by video V1Golf software or the new state-of-the-art K-Vest 3D motion analyzer that uses a wireless 3D biomechanical vest to measure rotation, pitch & tilt of body and swing movements. We are currently the only facility in the State of Michigan that has certified Level II Instructors for the K-Vest analyzer system. In addition, a golfer’s putting can be fine tuned on our 900 square foot putting area through the use of our SAM PuttLab, the ultimate training system that uses ultrasound measurements to analyze the 28 most important parameters of the putting stroke.”

Ken Allard, well-known metro-Detroit PGA golf professional has partnered with Mike Callaway and Bill Khalaf to provide PGA professional training at the SwingTEK Golf Academy. Ken points out, “There really hasn’t been a good practice facility in the metro-Detroit area that allows golfers to get this kind of state-of-the-art training in the off-season. Callaway adds, “We have installed a new High Definition Golf ™ Interactive golf simulator that will allow users to replicate the playing experience at courses such as Pebble Beach, Bethpage Black, Pinehurst #2 or Torrey Pines. We currently have 16 courses of the World’s greatest tournament courses…right at our facility. These courses are ideal for golf leagues, so join one today! We will ultimately add more simulators as the business for that activity develops.”
