iPlayGolfUK – the UK’s newest multi-screen indoor golf destination – has appointed PGA Class AA Professional Danny Poulter as its Director of Golf.

Poulter heads up a three-man PGA team at the recently-established golf centre, on the outskirts of Newport Pagnell, which boasts six state-of-the-art simulator screens plus giant TVs, two coaching bays and an advanced custom-fitting centre.

The 41 year-old, who has been coaching golfers from beginner level to European Tour winners for over 20 years, previously worked at IJP Design and Windmill Hill GC. Poulter’s team at iPlayGolfUK will create a new retail, custom-fitting and coaching environment for the region’s golfers.

“This place is truly amazing – in fact, it is golfing heaven” said Poulter. “As a personal golf experience, it is second to none. As soon as you walk through the door it’s all about golf and you’re among friends straight away. iPlayGolfUK offers year-round, all-weather, late-night golf entertainment for anyone with a passion for the sport, and I’m excited to join what must be one of the most forward-thinking new golfing ventures in the country”.

“Danny’s arrival gives us a huge boost, and we are surely now one of central England’s best places to improve your golf” said iPlayGolfUK Managing Director, Neil Wilcox. “In addition we are now the biggest independent custom-fitting facility in Buckinghamshire, and having retail accounts with all the major brands means we can kit golfers out with everything they need to shoot their best-ever round”.

Head PGA Professional Greg Tilbury and Head of Custom Fit Matt Straughan complete the PGA golf instruction team at iPlayGolf.

“Golf’s already hard enough, so we’re here to make it easier!” said Straughan, 24, a second year PGA Assistant Professional who previously worked at Callaway Golf and Woburn G&CC. “Most who walk through the door at iPlayGolf share the same passion for golf as we do. So whether you’re after a better ball flight with a new set of custom-fitted clubs, or some lessons to help get your scores down, I honestly don’t think you’ll find a better place anywhere in the UK”.

Forthcoming events organised by the new PGA team at iPlayGolfUK include a golf ball fitting day with Srixon, a wedge fitting day with Cleveland, and demo days with TaylorMade and Nike Golf.

iPlayGolfUK also sports a SAM Puttlab and a luxury VIP Room where parties of golfers can enjoy the best that the sport has to offer in a private environment.
