3 different areas
PGM Golf Academy has 3 different areas – Open Range, Private Range and VIP Room.
Depending on your purpose, you can select the suitable one!
This is the main area – total 6 ranges and the capacity of each one is 4. And 1 and 6 (both side one) can be used for lefty! Today, I just want to focus on myself so I book here to try.
It’s GOLFZON GDR which is US PLGA Official Golf Simulator and TRACK MAN which is also PGA Official measuring instrument. Once you set the club, the pin will be set automatically.
So let’s start!
It’s fixed price, so it means that you don’t need to worry and count the balls – within your booking time slot, you can continue hitting as much as you want!
And with every single hit, the result is stated on the screen – if you did well, you can hear “Nice shot”!!!
By the way, this is my best one for today – you can see “perfect shot” message!
Distance is not great but total balance is obviously good – I’m so proud of myself, eheh!
And also for every single hit, your swing form is recorded as a movie and photo! So you can check how to improve it. Since mine was unfortunately not as good as I wanted, I have decided not to share it here with you…
The private range basically offers the same facility but here, you can enjoy private space with your friends.
Or if you really want to focus and concentrate on your swing, then this is the range for you! (Not suitable for lefty…)
If you want to throw a “Golf Party” with your friend, this VIP room is the perfect venue! Using the actual golf course program and having food & drink together is a great activity to enjoy, especially in winter. You don’t need to worry about weather and transportation as it’s indoor in Ginza!
In the entrance area, you can find shop with variety of items. They offer many practice / training tools !
The brand promise of PGM is “Love Life. Love Golf” – PGM Golf Academy Ginza is the place where you can feel it the most. Golfer’s lounge for Golf lovers – you should be there!
