Frequently asked questions

Do I need a handicap?

Not at all! The Aviary welcomes professional golfers on tour to those who have never picked up a golf club before, and we have coaching, drills and courses suitable for all levels and abilities.

Do I need to bring my own clubs?

We encourage you to bring your own, so the data and feedback you get are the most accurate, but we do have a selection of junior and adult clubs available for free use. Please let us know in advance if you require left handed clubs.

Is there a dress code?

Absolutely not! You are welcome to wear whatever you like, other than spiked golf shoes. We recommend casual clothing to allow you to swing freely. We have heating and air-con, so we can adjust to reflect the outdoor weather.

Do you have food and drinks?

We have hot, cold and alcoholic drinks available for purchase, and we have a number of local partners who will deliver food to you for your booking. We are happy to pre-order this, please let us know at the time of booking where you will see the menu. Please get in touch with any dietary / allergy requirements and we can ensure these are catered for.

Do I need to pre-book?

We highly recommend you do to avoid disappointment. For same day bookings and availability please feel free to WhatsApp, text or call us on 07415 096183 to try and get you in.

Do you cater for left-handed golfers?

Absolutely! Where possible, please let us know in the notes at the time of booking if you require clubs to use.

Can I change my group numbers?

For safety reasons, we can only accept a maximum of four people per bay. If you wish to add numbers above this please let us know and if we have space we will add you a second bay to your booking at an additional cost.

Do you do any discounts?

Yes, we have a 10% student discount and 20% emergency service discount on the production of valid ID, please let us know at the time of booking if you wish to use these.

How long do I need to play?

To speed up play, we use Trackman's AutoPutt feature, which is based on PGA average distance and scoring once all players are on the green.

Based on the average amateur golfer to complete 18 holes, we generally say to book:

1 player - 60 mins
2 players - 2 hours
3 players - 2 hours 30 mins
4 players - 3 hours

but please do give us a call if you would like advice related to your ability levels.
