Technological advances have been revolutionary for taking fairly niche sports and blowing the doors wide open – making them exceptionally fun and expanding their appeal.
Big names like Flight Club (darts), Swingers (mini golf), and Junkyard Golf (crazy golf) have paired cocktails and great food with activities that were previously seen (by some) as fairly outdated or dull, to create the ultimate night out.
Now the driving range is getting the tech treatment. Following the massive success of Inrange® at Greenwich Peninsula Golf Range, Bristol Golf Centre has partnered with Inrange® to bring you a golf experience unlike any other, proving that golf really can be fun for everyone.
Inrange® have used their extensive engineering expertise to transform the standard driving range into a competitive golf gaming experience. Their state-of-the-art radar sensors provide real-time feedback on how you’re playing and, thanks to the system’s precision tracking, experienced and professional golfers can trust the data and use it to help perfect their game through focused practice with the in-bay Inrange® system and the Inrange® app. However, for rookies, like me, the tech is used to create superb multiplayer games.
The in-bay touch screens allow you to select your game and track all your shots. The immersive games allow you to challenge your mates to a game of Bullseye, Twenty One or see if you can avoid the lava whilst playing Shrinking Target. Alternatively, you can channel your inner Tiger or Rory and see who comes out on top on one of the Inrange+™ Championship virtual golf courses.
Bristol Golf Centre has 32 covered bays utilising Inrange® tech, six of which are equipped with the multiplayer Inrange+™ tech. Each multiplayer bay can accommodate up to four people, so whether you’re looking for a freshers activity for your uni sports club, looking for something different for your buddy’s birthday or want to challenge your course mates, why not book a multiplayer bay today?
On your way in make sure you grab a Frappuccino and Cookies & Cream Brownie from the onsite Starbucks.
If you fancy giving this fabulous treat a try, then get in touch with Bristol Golf Centre to book your bay.
