Hayling Island Resident Installs Simulator

Hayling Island, completely surrounded by sea and about 4 miles long and 4 miles wide is located in in the borough of Havant in the county of Hampshire, England and is home to a population of around 17,000 residents. Although the island is relatively small, it is also home to Hayling Golf Club. This traditional links course, although quite short by modern standards, has been voted in the top 100 golf courses in the UK. Due to the islands location, the strong prevailing winds, fast greens, gorse bushes and traditionally deep bunkers make this a stern test for any golfer. But even with a top class golf course available, one resident chose to go one step further and install a golf simulator in his home. A full size sports coach golf simulator has been installed by Pro Shot Sports, and required considerable alterations to the residents home. The ceiling needed to be raised and the dining room space and part of the lounge needed to be converted to accommodate the simulator. With Satellite TV added, this resident no longer has to worry about the inclement weather. Instead he can choose to play golf or watch movies from the comfort of his home.
