Thanks to today's amazing technology, people in the Ottawa-Gatineau area can now play golf year-round — in addition to working on your swing at various indoor practice facilities.
High-definition simulatorsGOLFOMAX and Pine View have some of the best simulators around and you use your own clubs and actually hit the ball, be it a drive, fairway metal, approach, chip or putt. Best of all, you get to experience some of the world's most famous and incredible golf courses.
After you strike the ball, various sensors in the simulators figure out what kind of shot you just made and display the ball-flight on a video screen, and yes, these golf simulators are so sophisticated they even pick up your draws, fades, skulls, chunks, hooks and slices! If you've never tried indoor golf, you'll be thrilled to know that it is as close to the real thing as possible, but without the snow, sleet and biting winds. Give it a try.
