Perfect way to golf in the rain/dark!

Brilliant lesson with Paul followed by a cracking hour on the 3 sided simulator.

Paul Barrington was honest and very knowledgable whilst making it fun. My game improved within the 2 hours I was at inPlay. I had to borrow clubs for the lesson as used public transport to attend the session, this wasn’t judged and I was supplied with good quality clubs. Paul did recommend that for future lessons bringing your own clubs for any lessons to allow him to review the set up accordingly.

The lady behind the desk was friendly and knowledgable regarding the simulators, she even allowed us to finish our hole and encouraged us review our stats when our allotted time was completed.

COVID measures were well thought out meaning the site felt safe but still allowed for an enjoyable experience.

If I’m being unnecessarily picky.... putting within the simulator is unrealistic but offset by the 8 foot allowance and certainly doesn’t take away from the experience!

Will be returning with friends shortly.

A walk like no other

This is great fun. I went with a group of friends some who'd never played golf and others playing regularly. Nicky and Paul catered for us all. After showing us how the game worked we played The Team Challenge. We were all winners in the end having had a lot of fun.. So popular we'll be going again.

You don't need to play golf to have fun!

We had our company team event at InPlay golf this week. Nicky was great at managing the booking process and we went for 2 simulators for a group of 10 mixed age, gender and ability golfers (we had some pro golfers and other who had never even picked up a golf!). We played a team competition between the 2 sims; allowing everyone the opportunity to take part regardless of golfing ability. Both Paul and Nicky gave us excellent help and tuition throughout (I think Nicky's putting tips really helped seal the win for us!) and as the bar was open throughout, it was amazing how much the non-golfers confidence grew after a few drinks! Overall, I would highly recommend this as a great team event for any age, sex or golfing ability. For a larger team I would certainly opt for a 2 hour session as it goes so quickly. Go and give it a go, you won't regret it!

Came here with some friends before a night out having been a few times before. Great service from Nicky and Paul and a unique and brilliant experience. I strongly recommend booking 2 hours as 1 hour really flies by.

Nicely set up and managed - great fun
Jan 2020
My first go at simulation golf. Made to feel very welcome on arrival and a clear explanation of how to use the simulator before we started.

Takes a little getting used to but quickly becomes very good fun. Like using a driving range - but in the warm, with a bar and a much greater focus to your swings as you work your way around a representation of a real golf course with none of the disadvantages that follow a bad shot. i.e. No need to hunt for balls in the rough.

You have to use the high quality clubs provided (which in my case were a very different feel to my own lightweight graphite shafts). Nonetheless, even playing pretty badly with them was so much more enjoyable than traipsing round a real rain sodden course - as all of them are right now.

We managed 14 holes in our two hours. Would probably make 18 holes if you play better than we did though.

My daughter has had a lesson here and really valued the data the technology provides as a way to measure the changes in her swing she was working on after what she said was a great lesson from pro Paul Barrington.

All in all a really fun way to practice your golf swing in a very friendly atmosphere at what I think is very reasonable value for money.

Many thanks for taking the time to send us a review, we pride ourselves on a quality centre & high customer service at all times. If you would like to bring your own clubs to use rather than ours at any time you are always very welcome, many golfers bring their own to do their club gapping etc. Hopefully see you again very soon.

Team Night Out
Oct 2019
What a brilliant fun night we had! 17 of us descended into inPlayGolf for a couple of hours golf. Who knew golf was so much fun! We had 4 teams playing against each other. Paul and Neal were amazing, really friendly and knowledgeable. Their help was brilliant. Not many of us had played before so Paul and Neal's help was invaluable. Would highly recommend.

Good fun
May 2019 • Family
I visited with my brother and son for a couple of hours. Paul was really helpful and got us started, demonstrating how everything works. Kept coming back to check we were OK, giving advice, replenishing our glasses etc.

Once we had started, perhaps stupidly selecting to play Augusta, it was all fairly straightforward. It involves a lot of imagination, since you are hitting at a screen, rather than getting the full picture. This applies particularly to chipping and putting. Occasionally, the result didn't quite match how I felt I had played the shot, but it may take a bit of getting use to.

I think the key is not to take it all too seriously. Whilst the simulators collect multiple readings, we, particularly my son, didn't feel the quality of strike was always reflected in the results. I also felt a couple of my shots were actually more generously rewarded.

Prices are very reasonable, and the website doesn't adequately show the various discounts that apply (first hour free for under sixteens, second hour discount for everyone etc), thereby suggesting a much higher cost. Two hours was enough for our initial demonstration, nine holes and a quick go at long driving and closest to the pin on the 17th at Sawgrass.

I would certainly come back, maybe on a cold wet day in December, when I don't have to brave the weather on the course.
