Launch of New Indoor Golf Studio

May 15, 2024

Investment in Golf Facilities at Castlereagh Hills and Aberdelghy Golf Courses

Two exciting new golf practice areas have now opened at Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council’s two municipal golf courses.  The investment programme has seen the launch of a four bay driving range at Aberdelghy Golf Course and two indoor golf studios at Castlereagh Hills Golf Course.

The practice areas use the latest golfing technology to complement both popular 18-hole courses. The golf studio operates using Trackman software, which is loaded with the latest golf data and simulation equipment. Golfers can virtually choose to play over 300 of the world’s greatest golf courses to challenge their skills against the top flite PGA players. Young golfers can also enjoy a range of animated games, making the facility the perfect venue for a family activity.

The driving range at Aberdelghy provides an easy option for members and guests to practice their golf swing during inclement weather. The sheltered area will offer a schedule of lessons as well as groups sessions for schools and corporate bookings.

Councillor Thomas Beckett, Chair of the LCCC’s Communities and Wellbeing Committee said, “The opening of these two practice areas is an important addition to both golf courses as they provide an option for customers to play golf all-year round. This means members and visitors can participate in the sport regardless of wet weather conditions, which will further enhance their golfing experience.

“There is also the benefit of extending our highly successful lessons programme by tailoring sessions within a dedicated practice area. This will open up the possibilities for golfers to increase their skills and confidence before heading out on the course. It is also hoped that that the facilities will inspire new golfers to take up the sport and increase participation in physical activity and wellbeing across the council area.

“I look forward to welcoming golfers to both practice areas and seeing the benefits of the new facilities on their game.”
