During Golf 101, designed for beginners, students spend 30 minutes in a classroom learning about course setup, golf etiquette, and equipment. Then an instructor oversees 60 minutes of open hitting from the club’s scenic perch over the Hudson River. Golfers swipe ball cards to activate the driving range’s automatic ball-tee-up system.
The Golf Club at Chelsea Piers
As part of the Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex, located at the historic Chelsea Piers, the Golf Club perches over the same port that once welcomed ships into New York City. Now, golfers tee up in the driving range’s 52 heated and weather-protected stalls, which overlook the glinting waters of the Hudson River. Automatic tee-up systems position balls for launch across the 200-yard, net-enclosed fairway. A putting green allows patrons to improve their short game, and two Full Swing simulators encourage them to take hacks in virtual environs, transporting them to famous courses across the country or fifth-grade birthday parties where they missed the piñata.
Children and adults alike can enlist in Golf Club at Chelsea Piers’ classes, which stratify students by experience level. The 13-member coaching staff includes PGA and LPGA professionals, and sessions take place in a 2,000-square-foot teaching facility.
