California generally has warm summers and mild winter so you may ask yourself why one would have the need for indoor or virtual golf.
For the simple reason that it allows for golfing day or night and even on the odd cold, wet day.
It also allows you to experience the indoor technology on offer. These facilities are there to assist you to sharpen your all-round game or learn from any level under expert supervision.
There are also more relaxed settings on offer for the not so serious golfer that perhaps just wants a bit of fun. And who wouldn’t want the opportunity to play on some of the best golf courses in the world?
Here are a list of the main training and social facilities that can be found in California:
