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.

All width-whittlers can expect classes to combine cardio-pumping jogs with strength sessions as Ariane and her staff of certified personal trainers turn unassuming benches, fences, and naturally occurring ThighMasters into accompaniments for toning moves that use body weight and other instruments for resistance. Each one-hour workout torches up to 800 calories, and most bodies appear noticeably slenderized after a quintet of classes.
