H-F Racquet & Fitness Club’s full-swing golf simulator transports clubbers to the emerald alleyways and lush greens of more than 50 of the world’s most famed golf courses. Club-toting compatriots pulverize real-life balls into the dazzling high-definition images of an immense screen, which enlists swing- and ball-tracking technology to precisely track drives as they bisect kempt fairway simulacra, flop shots as they rain onto the slick surface of pixilated greens, and foot-wedges as they surreptitiously nudge orbs onto more favorable terrain. A coterie of 650 motion sensors ensures accurate projections of each ball flight by measuring angle, calculating force, and reading the point of impact. From the comfort of a private room, duffer duos embark on a virtual adventure through the swaying heathers of St. Andrews, the towering tree lines of Torrey Pines, or the heist-planning waterfowl of Pebble Beach. Four hours of play is recommended for foursomes, and twosomes can expect to complete an 18-hole round of golf in roughly two hours of efficient birdie hunting.
H-F Racquet & Fitness Club's rates fluctuate throughout the day and week.
