On my way home the other day just down the road (less than a 2 minute drive) from my house and randomly stopped to get a coffee. Parked my car one shop front down and started to walk the 15m to the cafe but never actually got there.   

In between my car and the cafe I noticed a sign "24/7 Golf" after a second take I poked my head in the door to see two full size simulators. Curiosity piqued.

 

Started talking to the owner, who I recognised and the ISG Melbourne boys will prob already know, and found out it operates the same a 24/7 gym - pay a membership fee and I get a entry code which then gives me access anytime I like. I just have to book out a time slot online and I can play Pebble Beach or St Andrews or wherever.....

Needless to say that I am now a member so therefore....

 

If anyone lives in, or feels like traveling into, the Balaclava area Im happy to invite you to a match-play round in the evening after work or weekend.

 

If theres enough interest I may even think about (and then talk to the owner) organising a tournament or league or something.

You might feel like your swing looks like an elegant swan floating on a calm lake with the sun glistening down and creating beautiful light reflections on the water,

 

But it more than likely looks like a drowning elephant.

Reading the website... I am hoping they open one closer to me in the Kensington/Ascot Vale area. Would love to be able to pop down whenever I get a spare 30min and have a hit.
