The frost on the fairways means it’s time to take the clubs indoors and have at it on Virtual Sports Zone’s High Definition Golf simulators.
VSZ is home to six latest generation HD Golf machines that are loaded with 27 of the game’s best-known tracks, and a seventh simulator will be up and running soon. One of the layouts is the replica version of Pebble Beach’s Spyglass Hill.
Spyglass Hill Golf Course starts off with the first five holes cutting through seaside dunes and they demand that players find the correct line when they strike their shots or be faced with hitting layup after layup. The 13 homeward holes slice through pine forests, shot-snaring bunkers and lakes and the elevated putting surfaces are puzzles for players to piece together when they use their flat sticks.
Here’s are this week’s available screen-times at Virtual Sports Zone:
