No matter how you wish to enjoy your day you can pretty much find a way to do it in Manhattan – unless you want to chase golf balls around a golf course.
Then again you won’t find the likes of Times Square, Central Park, Lincoln Center, dozens of Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, hundreds of museums, galleries, landmarks and a selection of restaurants and shops than can be found in New York, New York anywhere else in the world. That doesn’t mean there’s no recognition of Golf in Manhattan. New York City has it all! Golf stores such as the NY Golf Center, Pitch & Putt, driving ranges and over 16 public golf courses in all Five Boroughs.
The latest edition to the Manhattan golf scene in 2010, is Golf Manhattan, which offers NYC golfers a year round alternative to play or practice golf conveniently located in the Gramercy Park / Flatiron area of Manhattan. Golf is played on PGA Tour Simulators using real clubs and balls -- bring your clubs or use our demo clubs free.
PLAY golf with real clubs & balls (we provide or bring your own) ; PRACTICE while we collect ball speed, launch angle & spin data; RELAX with use of our Jacuzzi, sauna locker service; LEARN from a PGA Golf Professional; SOCIALIZE in our golf lounge with a 46 inch HD-TV
PGA TOUR Simulators are truly amazing! While golf simulators have been around for nearly 25 years, leading edge technology is finally available with respect to both ball-flight rendering and graphics along with golf instruction provided by certified Class-A PGA Professional Tom Sutter. For more information and hours of operation, call (212) 685-4804.
And while you won’t be able to stroll down a fairway but you can work on your swing, grab a lesson, practice your putting or even play a simulated full swing round at anyone of more than 50 of the greatest golf courses in the world at Chelsea Piers. And, you can rent clubs if you don’t have your own.
Located right on the Hudson River (the entrance is at 23d St). Chelsea Piers also features a full service pro shop, restaurants, and dozens of other golf and non-golf diversions from ice skating to bowling.
While not part of Manhattan, you can also work on your game at the Randalls Island Practice Center.
There is a pro shop, lessons and club rentals are available.
