Newest entertainment golf destination opens its doors
A new suburban golf entertainment destination has been unveiled in Sydney.
Swing City, located in Norwest, features a 40-bay fully enclosed driving range equipped with Inrange technology, an 18-hole mini golf course and ‘amusement shed’, a state-of-the-art arcade.
Billed as a new way for the local community to engage with golf, the driving range enables visitors to play a host of interactive games and virtual courses with in-built ball tracking technology and targets.
Each bay also features timed auto ball dispensers and golf clubs for customers to use.
Golf Australia CEO James Sutherland, who attended the opening, said: “Swing City is a fantastic addition to the Sydney golf scene.
“It’s a state-of-the-art golf entertainment facility in the north-west that offers something special for golfers of all ages and abilities.
“Across the country, we continue to see tremendous growth in golf participation – on and off the course.”
The destination is hoped to be the first of many Swing City facilities around the country, spearheaded by its developers Mulpha in partnership with Golf Australia.
Creating a $60 million Play Golf Fund, the partners will facilitate development of additional venues on both public and private sites providing landowners with a turnkey solution to deliver the capital, planning and development required.
Ongoing management under long-term leases is also part of the solution intended to revitalize existing ranges, golf courses, public recreational facilities and private land.
“The facility will make a huge impact, serving existing golfers in the region and providing great experiences for newcomers to the game,” Sutherland added.
