Over priced
Mar 2016 • Family
Walked in and had to wait for the guy behind the counter to look up to help us. We asked for info and prices. The guy couldn't have been more disinterested in us. We found the prices for two people who have never tried this type of activity before was absurd. For a place with zero customers, I suggest offering discounts for first timers who may be looking to try something new. Unfortunately, we will never know if this is something we might like and will not be back to try. Sorry :(

No fun for the golf duffer.
Jun 2015
My husband and I are not great golfers so we thought this would be a fun way to practise. Not so, We had a young man choose our course based on our limited experience and we found it was not for the inexperienced. Perhaps if you are a good golfer it would be great- but if not- you may find it not worth the money, I think the concept is a super idea, it just wasn't for us.

Great place to go for a round in the middle of winter
Feb 2015 • Friends
Description: If you are anxious to get out for a round, but the ground is covered in 4 feet of snow, like it is now, this is the next best thing. There are 5 screens on which you can play. GolfZon opened in November 2014 and it is a great place to go with some friends to play a round of golf. You can even create a username and login so that you can see your swing.

Details:
Time allocation: One person can play a round of golf in less than an hour (so, with warm-up, etc., figure on 1 hour per person per round). My husband and I can play 1 round of golf in about 1 hour 20 mins and that's with warm-up on the driving range, 5 ft gimmees. With four golfers, no rushing, a medium level course, it took us 3 hours, 30 minutes.

How it works: You call and book a time; again, give yourself one hour per person per round, or just play for an hour of driving range time. You show up with your clubs (although they have clubs there), indoor shoes (sneakers) and comfy clothes (layers). You warm up at the driving range, putting green or chipping. The computer gives you replay of your swing as well as feedback on your club head speed, launch angle, etc. (Excellent if you are looking to work on a new driver.)

When you are ready to play, you let the staff know and they set you up. You select the course from about 100, but only 15-20 are North American courses... most are Asian courses. Course level of difficulty is shown when selection takes place. Hint: if you haven't been before, select an easy course. The difficult courses are very narrow and one goes OB very easily which is no fun for anyone.

You can determine if you will have gimmee putts & distance, weather, wind speed, tee height, mulligans, etc.

You play as you normally would. You always hit straight into the screen and use the arrows on the keyboard to change your direction. It isn't the same as playing in real life, but it's better than getting rusty if you don't play from October to April. You putt as you normally would but of course, you don't putt the actual distance; you are told how far your putt is and if it is going down or up.

Food and Drink:
Drink: Water, Gatorade, Beer, Smirnoff Ice, Hot chocolate, Coffee. Bucket of beer available too.
Food: Fries, wings, chicken fingers, chocolate bars, chips
(I bring my own bottle of water from home)

There are several virtual golf places around, but this one is by far the cleanest and nicest.
