And former Harry Potter star James Phelps said, “What’s really cool is that you don’t need to be a seasoned golfer to use it and the guys are really encouraging. I unfortunately shanked one, but it was no worries because the staff were on hand and able to tell me where I went wrong. Great place to come and check out.”

Situated in Ringwood Road, the GolfCatcher Academy is the first of its kind to hit the Poole area. It is home to seven golf simulator bays and a 40-foot putting green as well as a fitting centre, with a full range of clubs available, and a studio, which benefits golfers with stroke analysis and tuition.

GolfCatcher offers members the opportunity for PGA coaching with Martyn Thompson, vice-captain of the 2015 GB and PGA team. Membership also comes with the use of the private members’ gym.

CEO of GolfCatcher, Paul Barran says, “We want people to fall in love with golf, so we created a centre to make it more accessible for everyone. We wanted to bring the best to our customers, with equipment from two of the biggest names in the industry – Foresight Sports and Callaway.”

The GolfCatcher Academy in Poole is now open to the public seven days a week, 7am-9pm, with free access to all facilities until 23 July 2020.
