The Week Ahead (Feb. 24 - March 2): Indoor golf at Falcon Ridge

That thaw the capital region just went through must be sparking dreams of cracking that first outdoor drive this spring.

Ottawa-area golfers can better the odds of landing those first drives in the short stuff by playing the two High Definition Golf simulators at Falcon Ridge Golf Course.

When men, women and juniors shake of the rust to prepare for the 2014 outdoor season in the 4740 High Rd. facility’s clubhouse, they can pick and choose from famous courses that the pros play.

Or they can practice on one of the several ranges while checking out their swing mechanics and ball trajectory thanks to the system’s recording module.
