LOVE golf but maybe not so fond of the flies and sunburn? Well then maybe the new “virtual golf club” opening in Sydney next week is for you.
Inner City Golf is said to be a state of the art simulated golf club featuring 48 of the world’s top golf courses.
It is due to open at St Leonards on November 16 and will be open seven days.
The “club” features a bank of state-of-the-art Full Swing golf simulators, Swing Analyser Driving Bays, in-house professionals, pro-shop, café and even a 19th hole.
Inner City Golf says it will offer all the usual comforts and camaraderie of a golf club. Memberships are available, tournaments and weekly competitions (complete with handicaps), networking and social opportunities at the “19th”, juniors’ activities, Pro Shop, lessons and more.
Operators say the facility uses market leading Full Swing Golf simulated courses delivered in precisely recreated High Definition graphics and surround sound. They say the graphics are so realistic you’ll swear you’re on the course. And those courses include places such as Pebble Beach and St Andrews.
CUSTOMISE YOUR GAME – play the perfect game or pick a challenge
Advanced software options allow for game customisation including course (just pick your favourite/s), time of day, weather conditions, the speed and firmness of the greens and the length of the rough. A multitude of playing surfaces built into the simulator booth allows you to play from the fairway, from light & heavy rough and from the bunkers delivering a totally credible experience.
MEASURE, ANALYSE & TRAIN – precision training at its most convenient
Inner City Golf offers the latest in personalised training aids to help perfect your game.

Used with any club in your bag, the P3ProSwing* SPORT is a complete dynamic swing analysis system for golfers of all levels capturing information on: angles, swing path, tempo, position, sweet spot, deviation and club head speed.
