It feels like a milestone in the life of this small business. The last 5 years have been extremely rewarding seeing the business grow and hearing the positive feedback of customers enjoying their experience at the facility. There is nothing better than seeing new faces practising on the driving range or watching parents take their kids out for 9 holes on the Par 3 Course.
More than anything we want to share this landmark with the customers.
To mark the occasion of the five year anniversary all customers will receive 20% extra golf balls when they make a purchase on the driving range from the 9th May – 15th May.
Golfbug is a local business and the team wants to instil its enthusiasm for golf in everyone from the area who is interested. Birmingham is a golfing hub in the UK and young people should be more aware of this. It has some world-renowned golf courses and the University of Birmingham is the only academic institution in England where you can train to become a PGA professional.
The procedure for joining clubs has become simpler. Many clubs have waived their joining fees and annual memberships are less than in previous years. At Golfbug – Wast Hills there is an open to the public pay and play approach. The driving range is only £5 for 100 balls and the Pitch ‘n’ Putt is £4 for 9 holes.
An anniversary should always be about looking to the future as opposed to the past. Whilst the centre has come along way in five years, it is always more interesting to consider what will be achieved in the future. There are some great plans in the pipeline for Golfbug – Wast Hills and it will be very exciting to see what the next five years will hold.
