Virtually Golf hosted a opening evening on Friday, February 4 where people were greeted with Prosecco, beers and canapés and could enjoy the technology available.
Golf simulators where people can measure their shots and develop their game were in the main room as well as in a private area with one-to-one tuition.
However, it is not just for avid golfers. There were also games on the simulators and people could play a virtual darts game, where people hit the golf ball at the simulator which shows a dart going towards a big dart board in the water (see image below).
People could also play football with a penalty kick game.
It is based at Brayford Wharf East next to the Odeon.
Stephen Clark, 38, founder of Virtually Golf, said: “The actual simulator concept is no new idea. Technology has been in golf, and has been evolving, for a very long time.”
He said the technology that has been introduced into the sport hasn’t been done in the way that has been at Virtually Golf.
“So what we’ve brought to Lincoln is a new venue where you’ve got all this advance technology being used by the pros, the best golfers in the world, and we’ve opened it up to a whole new wider audience.”
He said the aim of Virtually Golf is to provide a space for not only people who are keen on the sport, but for non-golfers who want to enjoy an evening playing games and having a drink with family and friends.
Four friends who enjoy a round of golf were certainly excited by the new venue.
Mark Suckling, Simon Zigante, Chris Baldam, and Garren Edwards are members of Woodhall Spa Golf Club and were very impressed with what they saw.
They are members of a golf society and Mark, 56, said: “We’re going to make sure we come here after each society day.
“There’s top quality golf equipment,” he added.
Simon, 53, said: “The equipment and the clubs are first class.
“It’s good for blokes our age who are going to spend a bit of money.”
Chris, 54, said: “It’s a brilliant view as well. It’s nice to look over the Brayford.”
Garren, 56, added: “You can come out for a quiet few beers and just have a laugh with your mates.”
Prices are £35 to book a main-floor simulator and £45 to book a private simulator for an hour.
