London Golfers: where do you play / practice?

4 posts / 678 viewsLast Reply

Recommended Posts

I live in Hampshire, where we're well served for golf courses - a dozen or more splendid courses within 30 mins drive.  My home club is 5 mins from my house, and the driving range is open 24/7, so as long as there's daylight, I can practice.

However, I work and often stay in London, where I have a flat in Peckham (SE London, zone 2).

I don't run a car in London, so cycle or get public transport.  I don't know anyone else who plays, so short of random searching on the internet, I'm a little low on ideas for how to practice during the week, if I'm in town.

I'm guessing that people head out into Surrey, but I'm also imagining that contention for playing slots / driving bays could be pretty severe.

Any advice / experiences / recommendations most welcome.

I have some friends who go to urbangolf in the city.  It has several simulators that you can use and you can get a course of lessons there too.  I've never been but have heard good things from everyone that has been there.

I have also heard good things about Urban golf. I am planning to try it out on my next london visit. 

Similar to you Dornenglanz, based in hampshire but occasionally in london!

I've done urban golf ( Victoria iirc ) and It was dreadful, really felt like it was exaggerating thin shots. Wasn't a regular golfer at the time though, maybe I was that bad.

Don't want to put you off, just my own experience.
