CARLSBORG — Bogies, double bogies and other golfing disasters are a virtual reality for me no matter whether on the grass at Dungeness Golf & Country Club or the synthetic turf of the new simulator at Parfect Golf.
Randy Simmons, Parfect’s owner, recently installed the first of two simulator booths at the business on South Boyce Road. One booth features only golf while the second — which he was putting together Thursday — has golf and hunting features.
Simmons said he’s installing the simulators as a way of improving wintertime business at his driving range. An adjacent business — Park Golf — is closed during the winter months.
Simulator golf isn’t going to take more accomplished players away from local courses, although it will provide them a chance for more realistic practice because it provides feedback not available at the driving range.The rest of this story appears in today’s Peninsula Daily News sports section.
