There are many who consider golf to be ‘a good walk spoiled’. Let’s face it, the miserable British weather, obligatory ugly trousers and hours lugging around a bag of cumbersome metal clubs doesn’t make it the most endearing pastime. But buried underneath the back streets of Soho is Urban Golf—a swanky virtual golf club offering eight indoor simulators, where players can practice their swings on 52 of the finest courses in the world. This might also possibly be the one and only way for even the most ardent golf hater to savour 18 holes.
Urban Golf employs a fusion of PGA professionals’ expertise, innovative computer technology and stylish surroundings to make your virtual game one of the coolest ways to unwind after a hectic day. It’s as popular with seasoned golfers keen to knock a few points off their handicaps as it is with the novice who gets his kicks whacking a golf ball against a video screen. For the more serious-minded Urban Golf also offers lessons, one-to-one tuition and tournaments. Better still, after finishing your round, take a stroll into Urban Golf’s cocktail bar and contemplate your birdies and bogeys over a hard-earned beverage.
