After over six months of redevelopment work, "The Golf Haven" has officially reopened at Whitehaven Golf Club.

The facility has undergone a major transformation with a quarter of a million pound investment turning it into one of the most technologically advanced golf recreation centres in the country.

The cornerstone amongst the improvements is the introduction of Toptracer Range, the same ball-tracking technology used on televised golf tournaments to track the shots of the world’s best players.

The technology allows guests of all ages and ability levels to play a variety of fun and skill-based games, compete against friends, see their shot trace, and receive instant data on interactive game screens.

Sean Fleming, a spokesperson for Golf Haven, said: "We believe the finished product is now one of the best and most advanced driving ranges in the country, and we are really proud of the facility we are building as a team."

The mission of Golf Haven is to make golf as accessible as possible, Mr Fleming said: "The main benefit of having Toptracer installed is that this opens up the game to a much larger demographic, as the interactive game-based nature of the system appeals to all kinds of people."

The outfield has been completely replaced with multi-coloured and target orientated astro-turf, topped off with an automated ball-picking robot.

In combination with automated tees, full floodlighting, and brand new high-quality Srixon balls, The Golf Haven has became one of the finest recreational facilities in Cumbria.

Mr Fleming, said: "We have further plans to continue to develop the range and build upon the world-class facilities we currently have on offer. We have already begun construction on two state of the art coaching studios, which are due for completion later in the year.

"We also have plans in place for a range of competitions, events and activity days once COVID-19 restrictions are eased, and we hope this will all come together to make The Golf Haven one of Whitehaven’s favourite attractions all year round."

Open 7 days a week to all members of the public, and with tuition available from a PGA Professional, The Golf Haven is the perfect place to practice, improve, or have some quality fun with friends and family.
