'The Attic' to Feature 50 of the World’s Greatest Golf Courses in Clubhouse Setting
(Scottsdale, Az.) – Not only is teeing it up at Manchester Country Club, one of New England’s most storied properties a thrill for many golfers, the classic private country club is now home to the “IMAX Simulator.”
Spanning 22 feet in length and offering 160 degrees of wraparound images of some of the world’s most breathtaking golf courses, MCC’s PGA TOUR Simulator enables members and their guests to experience an unforgettable round of golf in the comfort and warmth of the Clubhouse. It also provides a premier indoor practice and teaching center, the only one of its kind in the state of New Hampshire and beyond.
Imagine snow cascading down on the Clubhouse and golf course at Manchester Country Club making golf on the storied property unplayable. Now, you can move your clubs indoors on the second floor of the Clubhouse in a room affectionately called, “The Attic,” and test your skills at iconic golf courses like St. Andrews, Pebble Beach, Harbour Town and TPC Sawgrass. Overall, 50 golf courses can be displayed on the Golf Simulator screen.
“Our new golf simulator not only makes you feel part of the landscape at these memorable golf courses, but provides our membership with the ultimate practice facility,” said Brian Kelley, general manager at Manchester Country Club. “We’ll schedule casual and league play along with private parties and corporate entertainment. Its multi-purpose applications are endless and creates so much added value for our members. We are truly excited to showcase this state-of-the-art equipment.”
Winter league play is set to begin in early March.
Manchester Country Club will unveil the PGA TOUR Simulator for members and prospective members at an Open House scheduled for March 11. Prizes including lessons, simulator time for four-somes and club fitting will be part of the festivities.
Manchester Country Club is also home to a new Player Development Area and the Titleist Performance Center, an indoor fitness training room where certified instructors will focus on golf-specific movements and physical training integrating core strengthening and athletic conditioning. A hitting bay equipped with JC High Speed Video along with a TrackMan Launch Monitor enables golfers immediate swing analysis and ball flight information. Individual and group training sessions are available throughout the year.
“Being able to practice indoors not only helps our members hone their skills in a magnificent setting, but also provides a fun and relaxing outlet for golfers to still enjoy their favorite sport if the weather outside is not accommodating for a day on our links,” added Kelley.
In 2013, Manchester Country Club completed an $8 million renovation project that included restoration and reorganization of MCC’s existing historic Clubhouse resulting in a spectacular New Hampshire venue for weddings and special events and a premier New England country club updated with new amenities. The renovation project included a new Conference Center with Roof Deck, expanded and renovated Ballroom for weddings and special events, private member dining area, and renovated men’s and women’s locker rooms.
