Of­fi­cial open­ing of new golf driv­ing range

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

GOLFERS will be able to prac­tise their tee­ing off skills at a new driv­ing range.

Peter­bor­ough City coun­cil­lor Paula Thacker and Ray Dobbs of­fi­cially opened the new driv­ing range at Thorpe Mead­ows Golf Club re­cently.

The driv­ing range gives play­ers a chance to prac­tice their golf skills, mi­nus the putting, and teach­ing is avail­able.

The range has 23 sep­a­rate driv­ing bays and is ideal for those who are new to the game, or who would like to re­fine their driv­ing tech­niques.

Cllr Thacker said: “It was a unique hon­our to be able to open the driv­ing range, see­ing as I’m not a sea­soned golfer.

“I was given a tour of the fa­cil­i­ties and then given a crash course in how to tee-off.

“I didn’t have a go my­self as I didn’t want to get shown up but I can tell that when you hit a good shot it’s a great feel­ing.

“I hope that many peo­ple go on to have that feel­ing when us­ing the range in the fu­ture.”

A spokesman for the course said: “We’re de­lighted to wel­come ev­ery­one to our plush new driv­ing range.

“A key fea­ture of the new Let’s Play Golf Academy. Boast­ing 23 bays on 2 lev­els – come try it out and ex­pe­ri­ence the drive to win.”
