It’s April, which means golf season will soon be in full swing.
Whether you’re new to the sport or have been playing for years, Par’s Indoor Golf is a great way to treat yourself – and improve your game.
Located on Erie Boulevard in Syracuse, Par’s is home to six golf simulators. Rates are charged by the half hour ($25) or hour ($50) – It typically takes one person about an hour to play 18 holes, according to Par’s website. Tee times are required. Par’s also offers leagues, tournaments, and, for those 21 and older, a full bar.
Guests can pick from more than 100 courses worldwide, including local favorites, such as Turning Stone’s Atunyote, and famous names like Pebble Beach. We chose the latter. After a few practice shots on the driving range, a staff member explained the basics of the simulator. You can control things such as the tee boxes, mulligans, and if you want to putt once you reach the green.
We golfed for about an hour. I’ve only played about a dozen times at two local courses, so I found the low-pressure environment and feedback from the simulator helpful (and bonus: I didn’t lose my ball). My husband, an experienced golfer, enjoyed the chance to maintain his game.
We will certainly be returning.
