WA Women's Golf League president Shirley Simpson has endorsed a new morning golf program for seniors at Par 3 Indoor Golf Centre in Canning Vale.
The indoor golf centre has large booths where players hit a ball into a projection screen and see its virtual progress, and can then study a monitor with statistics about their swing, hit and shot.
For senior players, this means that they don’t have to walk the course, but can still gain all the benefits of hitting the ball and socialise with playing partners.
‘People who are no longer physically able to participate on an actual course through age or disability can still participate in a golf situation at this venue,’ Simpson said.
Canning Vale resident Simpson is a member of the Whaleback Warriors, and after a quadruple heart bypass, has not played for six years, but feels confident about playing indoor golf.
She is a life member after 28 years on the committee of WA Women’s Golf League, which has over 1000 affiliated players in 26 clubs in Perth.
Owner Justine Mamootil is offering a discount rate for seniors to play all the golf they want before 10am, seven days a week.
‘We have 21 championship courses like Pebble Beach where 18 holes takes about 2 hours, so we’re looking for any tee-offs before 8am,’ she said.
For information, phone 6258 5935. The centre is at 5 Hughes Street, Canning Vale.
