Trafford Golf Centre is benefitting from the surge in interest in golf during the lockdown, with the Manchester-based facility reporting over three million golf balls being hit since it re-opened in May, with a record 73,000 balls being used in a single day. 

Now featuring TopTracer in all 53 bays and 39 Power Tee bays, Trafford Golf Centre is widely regarded as the busiest driving range in the UK. 

Featuring a replica of the 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass, Trafford Golf Centre also boasts a dedicated short game practice area featuring Huxley synthetic turf. 

Pete Styles, the Director of Golf at Trafford Golf Centre, said: “Since March, we have experienced many highs and lows as a venue, but we’re pleased to be reporting positive numbers as we emerge into the new normal, as not only a driving range for golfers, but as a visitor attraction welcoming families, friends, date nights and many more.”

Among plans for improved facilities at the venue include additional outfield targets and update to the toilet facilities, as well as a new website.

Styles added: “I want to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their continued support and co-operation in keeping to social distancing guidelines and increased measures in place to ensure we can remain operating. We value the quality of practice at Trafford Golf Centre and we always strive to offer the best service, balls, mats and targets.”

Featuring a licensed café and bar, six target greens spread over 300 yards and the largest American Golf retail store in the north, Trafford Golf Centre is also home a 36-hole Dino Falls Adventure Golf Course.
