As industry figures show a decrease in the number of golf rounds played in the final quarter of the year (2015 saw a 7% decrease on 2014’s figures)*, Topgolf is on a mission to break the trend this winter and get Brits to continue their love of golf throughout the year.
This winter, the premium entertainment venue is offering a Winter Coaching Package, allowing golfers to continue practicing their swing in preparation for the warmer British months. The package includes two 30 minute coaching sessions and four Topgolf games at a discounted price of £50.
Using cutting edge technology, including Flightscope and Hudl swing analysis, the venues’ Coaching Zone sets out to deliver players an effective level of coaching for both advanced and beginner golfers, from PGA qualified coaches.
Andrew Agnoli, Head PGA Advanced Professional, said: “Topgolf appeals to people of all ages and abilities, offering players the chance to practice their swing as well as having fun with family and friends. Our coaching package is a great way for people to improve their game over the winter period.”
As the temperature continues to drop and social calendars start booming with festive celebrations, golfers could be forgiven for letting their fitness regime go but with an indoor/outdoor set-up, the golfing venues allow players to continue enjoying the game, without being affected by seasonal weather.
Not only is Topgolf set-up to allow for 12 months of golf play, it also combines the sport with a social scene, including an American style food and drinks service at visitors’ dedicated golfing bays as well as an indoor bar and restaurant, meaning friends and family who are not avid players, can still join in the fun.
The three venues (Chigwell, Surrey and Watford) have multiple player bays but are all slightly different, offering a unique experience at each. The Surrey venue has additional attractions to enhance the experience including a 9-hole golf course with FootGolf, and Watford boasts an adventure golf course.
Topgolf will also be running their Eat, Drink, Play deal through the Christmas holidays. Between 3-7pm, guests can get a meal, drink and 2 games of Topgolf at just £10 for Juniors and £16 for adults. For more information visit: http://topgolf.com/uk/cm/edp/
