Trafford Golf Centre ups its game with Toptracer

12.05pm 19th November 2018 - Corporate

Trafford Golf Centre, one of the UK’s busiest driving ranges, has upgraded its driving range facilities following the installation of Toptracer ball tracking technology to 16 of its 53 bays.

Toptracer technology is now offered in 16 bays at Trafford Golf Centre in Manchester

Offering the same ball-tracking technology that follows the shots of the game’s best players on TV, Toptracer provides instant shot replays and statistical feedback on interactive game screens in the bays, which allows players to make swing adjustments and immediately see the impact on their golf shot. The fun, tech-driven experience appeals to seasoned players, range rivals, friends, family members, and even first-time golfers. Toptracer cost £5 per hour before 5pm Monday to Friday and £10 at all other times. This price excludes balls and club hire.

In addition to the upgraded driving range experience, the Manchester-based centre has also introduced a new waiter service, enabling guests to enjoy food and drinks out on the range without having to take a break from their practice.

Pete Styles, the director of golf at Trafford Golf Centre and Dino Falls, said: “The ball-tracking technology is a complete game-changer, as customers can now use the Toptracer Range Community App to access their history of shot data, as well as how they rank against other players on leaderboards. This latest attraction compliments the ongoing improvements and new facilities at Trafford Golf Centre, including Dino Falls Adventure Golf, extended catering facility and consistent supply of new Srixon golf balls and equipment. We look forward to seeing both existing and new customers enjoying the new technology.”

Work is currently underway on a new putting green and chipping practice area, which is due to be completed by early December. There is also a new hot food menu including Chicago Town pizzas, plus alcoholic beverages and Starbucks refreshments, complete with waiter service now available in the Top Tracer bays, making Trafford Golf Centre the perfect destination for mates, dates and family get togethers.
