visited the range recently, seen here with range owner Chris Pope - to try out some new clubs.

A personal message from Andrew Mair:

Coaching Announcement

Dear Member

After over 48years in the golf industry I have decided to start taking life a bit easier, and so I will be leaving Sunderland Golf Centre on 19th September 2017.

I have enjoyed my six years at the driving range, meeting many people using the range some becoming good friends.

I’d like to take this opportunity to personally thank Chris Pope and his team, for all their help over the last six years. Chris took on an ailing business and has

worked tirelessly to improve the golf driving range and I’m sure he will continue to do so for many years to come.

I will continue to visit the range from time to time, hopefully I will see some of you if you are around.

Best Wishes

Andrew Mair

A Great Comment from One of Our Members about Sunderland Golf Centre

''At my place 83p for 25 or 50 during happy hour, which is 9.00 to 11.00 weekdays & 5.00 to 6.00 weekends, provided you top up your card with 1,500 balls for £50. Decent quality balls & great mats. Happy hour is like a retirees' social club. Go there, hit a few balls, have a coffee & a chat.

I can spend most of the morning there. It's attached to an American Golf, but run separately, so I can browse the stock while I'm there too.

I'm there most mornings if I'm not playing.''
