BENTHAM Golf Course now has an indoor golf studio - for those keen to improve their swing or have a bit of fun, even in the most appalling of weather conditions.

After trying out a swing room, operations director John Marshall has moved indoor golf at the club to a new level, investing in a fully equipped studio.

Designed for both tuition and fun, the studio features padded walls and the latest in golf simulation software by Foresight GC Quad. Open to non-members as well as members, golf enthusiasts can use the facility to hone their skills, improving their game with analysis of yardage, ball speed, club data and other assessment of their game.

The club’s golf professional, Sophie Daws runs the studio, which she uses in coaching sessions alongside tuition at the driving range and on the course.

And, for those who just want to play for fun, there are around 25 different courses to play on the simulation software.

Mr Marshall said “With the challenges of volatile weather impacting on play outdoors, The Studio provides a perfect environment for our golfers to play all year round. If we have to close the course due to prolonged rain or freezing conditions, we can now offer a rewarding alternative. At the other end of the scale, some of our members struggle with the heat in summer and they will now be able to play away indoors away from direct sun.”
