Golf, beer and a slab of pizza all on King St, Newcastle
If you like the idea of mixing your food, beer and sport then perhaps you need to warn the wife, or hubby, because Slice Virtual Golf on Newcastle's King St is about to become your second home. Best described as a sports bar and pizza place, what sets this venue apart from your average sports bar is the five state-of-the-art OptiGolf simulators.
Slice Virtual Golf gives golfers the chance to choose between 95 of the world's best golf courses like; St Augusta, Pebble Beach and St Andrews.
The indoor venue offers superb conditions, day or night, and is perfect for those who are a little golf obsessed. Better still you get to play with real golf balls and the option of either bringing your own clubs or using the onsite Callaways.
Whilst this sounds all super professional and serious, trust me when I say that you don't need any real skill or talent to take a hit at Slice Virtual Golf. On the evening we dropped by there was a fair bit of air swinging going on, and let's just say if the turf were real there'd be divots everywhere. Whilst novice players don't feel out of place the technology at Slice offers serious golfers the opportunity to work on their swing and learn a thing or two from the onsite PGA qualified instructor who has 30 years experience touring the golf circuit, he sure can offer you a tip or two.
Like the golf; the food and beer is also taken pretty seriously with some tasty pizza combos and a metre long monster that comes with the option of sharing with your mates.
Slice Virtual Golf makes for a perfect alternative to going out with the boys, or girls, somewhere you can have a casual beer, a slab of pizza and convince yourself that you're doing something a little healthy.
