Trafford Golf Centre Drives Record Trade

31 May 2017

Trafford Golf Centre in TRAFFORDCITY has reported its busiest quarter to date with a staggering 4.25 million golf balls being hit from 1 January until the end of April 2017 – a 3.3% increase compared to the same period last year.

The announcement follows its busiest trading day since opening almost 18 years ago, on Saturday, 13 May when 66,000 golf balls were hit in less than 12 hours. As well as record visitor numbers and golf ball hits The Trafford Golf Centre’s in-house café doubled its turnover in the first quarter of 2017 compared to its first trading quarter last year.

A dramatic surge in visitors

Peter Styles, Director of Golf for Trafford Golf Centre said: “Trade in the early part of the year is typically quite slow and traditionally picks up from the beginning of April. However, this year we have seen a dramatic surge in visitor numbers and golf ball hits since the start of the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta and Sergio Garcia’s historic win. There has been a direct correlation between the start of the Masters and demand for our range facility. It’s clearly inspired golf lovers and novices to pick up their clubs and get practicing at their local driving range.”

“This renewed interest in the sport also translates to our golf academy which has continued to perform well, particular growth has been seen in the junior academy. We have expanded the full-time team of PGA qualified coaches to seven who are busy seven days a week.”

The announcement follows the replacement of all 60,000 of its golf balls ready for the season ahead.

Peter added: “We are committed to completely replace all the golf balls twice a year to make sure the quality of the range experience is second to none.”
