You may have seen our preview article on the then, upcoming opening of Five Iron Golf, a top-rated golf simulator rental, restaurant and bar in Midtown Atlanta. Five Iron is now open for business and we’ve got the insider’s scoop on why you should visit, and what you can expect. For serious practice…or serious fun.

I’m not much of a golfer. I do enjoy playing on the sparse occasion that I get to go, especially if I happen to make that rare, once-in-a-round sweet shot to the green.

So I enlisted the help of friend and Atlanta executive Grant Shih and his boys to get the scoop from a more (ahem) serious player. This is important because Five Iron and the advanced technology simulators they offer make the cut for both low-handicap golfers, kids and rookies just looking for a little fun.

The Simulator

Five Iron employs the hi-tech Trackman golf simulator technology. The system uses multiple high-speed cameras, and cutting edge visuals to put you right on the tee at hundreds of world famous locations. This is the same system used by pros all over the world for training and instruction.

In fact, Grant’s son Kyle already had experience with the Trackman system with his golf coach, which at the time only employed a single camera, but was still quite beneficial at getting him up to speed.

Five Iron’s Trackman version uses not one, but three high-speed cameras which really ups the accuracy and realism.

The Practice

And the realism of these simulators is insane.

As mentioned there’s already golfers worldwide using it for training purposes. Grant confirmed that the functionality is ideal for practice and improving your stroke. It’s not just the accuracy of the shot placement on screen, but perhaps more importantly the comprehensive swing analysis the system provides.

You can use Trackman to analyze your own swing, or employ one of Five Iron’s instructors for an hour-long lesson. The Five Iron pros really know the technology, and the game well.

Check out the video above for a solid overview, and why Five Iron made the wise choice to switch to Trackman. As Grant points out, what a great way to beat the summer Atlanta heat when you want to get some practice time in.

If you want to take it to the next level, Five Iron also offers memberships, which, especially compared to course fees are quite affordable.

The Fun

You don’t have to be a serious golfer to have fun at Five Iron. Not at all.

The simulator has multiple skill level options making it fun for youngsters, and hacks like me. The opportunity to play on courses like Pebble Beach and St. Andrews – locations that would likely scold me in a heartbeat for both my speed and attire – provides loads of entertainment. All of the golf modes of play are available to compete with friends, like Scramble or Alternate Shot.

If you’re not up to playing a round and want to keep it light, give one of the included target games a try like Bullseye or Capture the Flag.

Not only that, but there’s other games available, both real and simulated. The area includes a pool table, shuffleboard and a hook-and-ring game, as well as simulated foot golf, soccer, hockey, dodge ball, and more.

Grant was appreciative of the nearby shuffleboard which kept 8 year-old Talon busy when the attention span wandered. Talon was also a fan of Angry Birds on the simulator.

The Food

Did I mention the restaurant and bar? The food and drink selections are plentiful with items like Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese Bites, Butchers Blend SmashBurger Sliders, Hot Honey Pepperoni Pizza, Salted Caramel Cheesecake, the 5i Old Fashioned, and a wide beer and wine selection.

Grant and Co visited in the afternoon and opted for the Bavarian Pretzel Sticks and Fairway Salad, which were top notch.

The Events
