visited the range recently, seen here with range owner Chris Pope - to try out some new clubs.
It was very interesting to see that he hits a golf ball nearly as far as a cricket ball!

A Great Comment from One of Our Members about Sunderland Golf Centre
''At my place 83p for 25 or 50 during happy hour, which is 9.00 to 11.00 weekdays & 5.00 to 6.00 weekends, provided you top up your card with 1,500 balls for £50. Decent quality balls & great mats. Happy hour is like a retirees' social club. Go there, hit a few balls, have a coffee & a chat.
I can spend most of the morning there. It's attached to an American Golf, but run separately, so I can browse the stock while I'm there too.
I'm there most mornings if I'm not playing.''

* WE ARE OPEN *
We are pleased to confirm that we are allowed to re-open our range and coaching facilities from Monday 29 March.
The reason we are allowed to do this is because the range is outdoors but we must therefore provide conditions so that our business takes all appropriate steps to ensure we are 'covid safe'.
We must insist that all customers strictly follow the rules and procedures when coming to us.
This will include social distancing and following all signs/rules within the site.
We are now able to hire out a limited number of irons for customers, and we remind you that we will operate our Summer hours meaning that our weekday closing time will be 9pm.
We look forward to seeing you all back!
