Practise Like a Pro or Just have Fun

I'm the first to admit that I don't really like practising, and as winter approaches, the thought of going to a driving range on a dark and cold night doesn't appeal at all. But ...

This week I went to Golf Kingdom in Romford, Essex. It was like a trip down memory lane as I remember first visiting this venue over 25 years ago when I began playing golf. It was a good yet simple golf range with covered bays and a golf shop. Wow, what a transformation. The golf range is still there, but there's also an adventure golf course, an 18 hole course, the opportunity to play FootGolf, an American Golf store and a comfortable cafe.

The purpose of my visit was to try out the Toptracer shot tracking technology - similar to what you see on the TV when the ball flight of a pro's shot is traced from start to finish. On the screen I could see my ball flight and data includes carry and total distance. You can work through each club and information can be logged using the Toptracer app. That's the more serious stuff, but you can also select targets to hone your distance control, or play a worldwide course, competing against a golfing friend. This is a good way to use all the clubs in your bag, as I have a tendency to select a few clubs and it's then a case of whack, whack, whack, on a mission to finish the number of balls in the basket as quickly as possible. Toptracer really combines improvement with fun, and I'll definitely make a return visit if it's not too cold!!
