Toptracer technology transforms driving ranges at Chesfield Downs and Witney Lakes

Toptracer driving ranges recently launched at Chesfield Downs and Witney Lakes Resort and has proved extremely popular with members and visitors as a fun, engaging, tech-driven experience which appeals to golfers and non-golfers alike.

The experience is easily accessible and open to everyone, whether golf or health members, seasoned golf visitors or guests completely new to golf, making it a great choice for a day out with family or friends.

Toptracer delivers the same ball-tracking technology that traces the shots of the professionals on TV. The technology provides instant shot replays and statistical feedback on interactive game screens in each bay, allowing players to make swing adjustments and immediately see the impact on their golf shot.

There are games and modes suited to all ages and skill levels, competitions such as Closest to the Pin, and advanced analytics to fine-tune your swing.

Barry Careford, General Manager at Chesfield Downs, is pleased the new investment has been so well received and thinks it’s opened up golf to a new audience. “Feedback on Toptracer has been excellent! It’s been wonderful to see so many new faces down at the club.

Whether you're a complete newbie or have been playing for years, the technology, mixed with fantastic food and drink, has proved to be a winning combo for all our guests.”

Why do you think it's been so popular? “For aspiring or experienced golfers wishing to improve their game Toptracer adds a more refined practice experience, providing statistics to improve their game in a relaxed environment. It’s a great way to spend a couple of hours, exploring the fun challenges in the game modes plus the chance to play virtual golf on some of the best courses in the world. The whole experience is far from the stuffy image of a quiet, dull driving range. With food and drink, music and fun I think it’s the perfect way to spend time with friends and family.”

How can people book a session at Chesfield? “There is no need to book currently - players are welcome to turn up and if there is a wait, enjoy the stunning view over the Hertfordshire countryside and main golf course in our bar or patio.”
