I have to admit, I’m rather jealous of those who can play golf. As soon as the sunshine starts to show, those golf days start appearing, and afternoons in the office can be swapped for hitting a few balls across a beautiful golf range, before having a few drinks. I’ve never been part of this, with my golfing ability being precisely zero. So as you can imagine I was thrilled to be invited to an afternoon of golf- no experience (or talent) necessary.
The Greenwich Peninsula Golf Range doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the inside tells a different story. Overlooking the City, the views are amazing. One of the guys from the range gave us a few instructions and pointers, and then we were left with golf clubs, a bucket of balls and a bottle of wine in order to try and grasp the talent of hitting the ball in the right direction (or you know, at all…).
After a few hours, our talent wasn’t improving much, but we decided it was thirsty work, so we retired to the bar downstairs. As the sun went down, the view was no less stunning.
With the sun down, we retreated inside to the Vinothec Compass restaurant, where a selection of wine and sharing boards were just waiting for us to eat and drink them…
While I came no closer to becoming the next Tiger Woods, the Greenwich Peninsula Golf Range is a great place for a bit of fun on a sunny day. And if your golf is anything like ours, the selection of wine will more than make up for it.
