We live in a connected world and Bermudians love to travel, so presumably you’ve all heard of indoor golf simulators. But have you ever used one? We are about to hit that time of year when midday golfing is only for the thick skinned and many of us are switching our golf clubs for a cool corona either in the sea or in the air conditioning. We can’t provide the sea, but we can certainly provide a cold corona, air conditioning and golf clubs with a place to swing. Come and try out IslandKaddy cutting edge, state of the art simulators with 39 courses, multiple scoring systems and great games such as Demolition Driving Range.
With the advances in technology today, it’s no surprise that there are ever evolving tools which can help us improve our skills in numerous ways. “Spectacular photo-realistic capabilities capture the true beauty of some of the world’s most renowned golf courses” – High Definition Golf
Here are a few of our favorite simulator features:
Instructional Aid: Simulators include sensors to track the movement of both your club and the ball. This allows players the chance to see the speed of their swing, the projection, spin and contact of the ball which provide valuable information about mis-hits and what you can do to improve your swing. For beginners, simulators allow the opportunity to practice and better their drive, course play and putting before ever stepping onto a course. Since simulators don’t need special clubs, it’s an opportunity to test clubs or have them fitted.
Time Commitment: Sometime 4 hours is just too many to give away. We all have busy lives, places to be and things to do. One of the biggest perks of a simulator is the time you can save. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing activity, or just some extra practice, the luxury of not having to search for your ball after each shot, walk from one side of the fairway to the other chasing after your ball, and no waiting for the group in front of you will expedite your round. The furthest you will need to walk is to the bar.
Weatherproof: No matter the heat, rain, thunder or lightning, indoor golf simulators will be available and allow you to avoid these inconveniences. With IslandKaddy being open 10am to 10pm, every golfers day has been extended, so there is no longer an excuse not to play!
Bucket List Courses: Although Bermudians love to travel, it’s only the lucky few that make it around the world to play certain courses. Players have the chance to discover Pinehurst, Torrey Pines, Harbor Town and so many more. Each course allows the participants to test their skills at different difficulties and improve their shot-taking on trick greens. Golfers don’t need to enjoy the game along; the multiplayer system makes playing a round of golf with your buddies just as good as being on a course. Whether you’re playing competitively, practicing your drive or playing a full course or event, the luxury of multiplayer is available for up to eight players.
Who’s using them? Bubba Watson, Justin Rose, Jordan Spieth and Stephen Ames are just a few PGA professionals that use the simulators to practice, checking their drive statistics which is easy for them to do when they set up simulators in their homes.
In the long run, golf simulators will not only help you improve your golf game by showing you the ins and outs of your gameplay, but also allows you to never miss a day of golf due to unfavorable conditions. Stay cool this summer and come and visit us at IslandKaddy. Book Online today!
