Where to play proper golf with proper clubs in Manchester – without the rain

You’ve played crazy golf. Now it’s time to take it up a level. Proper golf, with proper clubs, without the rain. Somewhere you don’t need to wear a pink tank top and tartan trousers and a pint is never far from reach while you’re playing.

If this sounds too good to be true it’s because one of the best kept secrets in Manchester is waiting for you to discover it and it’s just a stone’s throw from Piccadilly Station

With over £300,000 worth of golfing equipment, the simulators at The Green Sports Bar Manchester allow you to play over 60 of the world’s best courses from one location in the city centre. Play St Andrews to Spyglass on courses so realistic you can hear the birds singing in the trees and where the sun shines 365 days a year.

Take advantage of the Full Swing golf simulators – which are the same as what Tiger Woods has in his mansion – the top of the line luxury golf simulator owned and endorsed by Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods, featuring the latest in camera-based 3D technology. They’re the closest thing to being out on the course and you get detailed feedback and statistics from every shot.

The software allows for handicaps to be added, gimmies to be set and you can play any game as you would at your own club – Stroke Play, Stableford and Match Play to name a few.

Fancy something totally different? Involve non-players in the game zone, use Donald Trump’s face for target practice in Death Match or hone your accuracy skills by making ducks explode in the Carnival Shooting Gallery, a game of precision and force.

There’s something for everyone to enjoy no matter what skill level.

Play a four ball course or bring up to seven mates along for driving range competition. The options are endless and with new courses and games added regularly, there’s always something new to try.

Membership options are available for regular players, there’s half-price golf Monday-Wednesday* and free golf for ladies every Monday.* Staff are always happy to help so why not pop in and see how serious they are about golf.


*T&Cs apply, subject to availability.
