Experienced golf professional Darren Cain is delighted with the opening of The Aviary Golf Facility in Timperley which offers great golfing opportunities and entertainment for all levels of ability and age groups.
“I have been a PGA Professional for 18 years and have worked in many areas of the industry such as club professional, teaching professional, online retailer of golf equipment/tee time bookings.
I had a stint of playing full time to pursue the dream but decided it wasn’t for me so I went into coaching again and worked at The Mere Resort
Being an ambitious person I wanted to add scale to my golf coaching so started a business that operated golf coaching at up to four golf venues. This experience set me up to embark on this exciting journey of opening my own venue where I want to deliver a very relaxed, fun and diverse range of golf related activities in cool surroundings. The Aviary is to be a place where people young or old do not feel intimidated to come and learn to play golf.
We want to offer golf to the time poor family man who cannot get to the range or on the course due to family commitments and being a father of a little girl myself I know the constraints this can put on a person and rightly so. But we aim to offer that person the chance to practice or play for half an hour if needed and they can even bring the little one!
Our diverse range of offerings spread from golf coaching using systems such as MySwing 3D which is a bio mechanical tool used to measure and manage the movements within the golf swing that the eye nor video can see.
Our simulator has a fantastic launch monitor which gives feedback on club and ball behaviour. This info is then used to calculate a true to life ball flight on screen almost instantly.
First and foremost we are a centre for indoor golf where players can book time to play one of the worlds best courses such as Augusta or Pebble Beach. We offer driving range time by half hour or hour slots.
We believe practice on our range is extremely beneficial as the golfer can get feedback of what their club did to produce each shot hit, unlike the driving range (and they stay warm and dry). If you don’t have clubs its not a problem as we have a vast array of brand new clubs to suit all.
We also operate a #nodresscode policy, meaning that you can come and wear what you want at The Aviary -no stuffiness here! It is a very private place so beginners can feel comfortable and really focus.
The intimacy of The Aviary lends itself perfectly to hosting bespoke events for small groups up to 12 people. Small businesses would really enjoy treating their clients or staff to a few hours on the simulator and our perfect surface putting green whilst chatting business over some lovely coffees. Our plan is to get a license so that we sell alcohol and go that step further to becoming an entertainment centre and grow into bigger premises.
But for now we are committed to providing a fabulous service to our guests and we want them to return time and time again whether its for lessons or playtime. Keep on eye out for upcoming events on our Facebook and website such as team competition evenings and ladies mornings!”
