The Proof of the Putting
If you're a keen golfer, you'll know the importance of practising your swing, even through the darkest, coldest and wettest winter months when braving the elements over eighteen holes isn't the most enticing way to spend an afternoon outdoors.
With weather conditions in Scotland frequently more challenging than those here in the South West, alternatives to the golf course in the area are always going to be popular.
Perfect for experienced golfers, eager improvers, and even those who've never picked up a club before, Forthview Golf Range in Falkirk is the ideal place to visit at any time of year.
What a Range
Having recently finished a refurbishment and now enjoying their 20th-anniversary celebrations, Forthview Golf Range offers undercover and floodlit driving ranges, a 9-hole pitch and putt course, all-weather putting green, well-stocked pro shop and conference facilities.
It's the ideal destination for the enthusiastic golfer to practice, improve and spend some quality sporting time - come rain, shine or any other weather in between.
It's not just the welcome you get at Forthview Golf Range which is warm at this family-run business. Even when outside temperatures are at their chilliest, wall-mounted heaters in the four new private practicing suites keep golfers from getting goose pimples.
The teaching studio has also been refurbished, making it twice the size it used to be. Now kitted out with new, state-of-the-art equipment, golfers can benefit from the latest ball tracking radar, high speed video sports analysis, and a force platform for checking static and dynamic balance.
The room, which also doubles for lecture and conference facilities, is where the coaching and golf lessons take place. With a Head Professional coach, Junior Coach, Tour Professionals and Elite Amateur golfers, there is plenty of help on hand for those who are looking to up their game.
Practice Makes Perfect
So, if you want to polish your putt and smooth your swing in readiness for your next afternoon out over 18 holes, remember the punchline to the old joke about asking how you get to Carnegie Hall. Get yourself over to Forthview Golf Range and practice, practice, practice
