This indoor golfing arena in central Chennai brings the vast worlds of golf and tech onto a 170+ sq ft putting green. GEC uses a realistic HD virtual golf simulator and a putting green (with an inbuilt sensor) which shrinks the fanfare of golfing into an affordable and convenient hobby. The arena was soft launched on March 18.
With no hassles like acquiring a prior membership or attending classes in any particular dress code, one only has to book their slots prior to the session.
The arena has a wide sense of space owing to its aesthetically done interiors. What adds character to GEC is a panoramic image of the Old Course at St. Andrew’s, Scotland plastered across its putting green – a picture of the birthplace of golf could inspire young minds to turn the fun game into a serious pursuit.
How is mini golf different?
At GEC the only difference between playing golf on a rolling green and a 170+ sq feet putting green is the tech assistance. The realistic virtual golf simulator is able to tell the player the undulation of the ground, the distance between the golfer and the hole, distance of the shot played and an analysis of the quality of the swing. The simulator has many interesting games like zombie golf, soccer golf, air craft carrier themed driving range, grand canyon theme driving range and many more.
GEC has partnered with Golphin, a Scotland based designer and manufacturer of junior golf sets. GEC will use Golphin’s proprietary mobile app — MyPathway2Golf to bring an element of fun to the sport.
On completing individual and group coaching classes for children and young adults certificates will be issued with Golphin‘s credentials. It will soon open its first summer camp for kids between 7-12yrs.
