Upon arrival we were not straight away enthusiastic. Maybe because we just visited the course of Carpatia and that is really not a recommendation.
Here at Golf Club Pegas, there are a lot of good facilities to practice your swing and to improve your putting and chipping skills. At first we thought it could all have a bit of maintenance, but after a while you notice why things are the way they are.
For example; the first impression of the driving range area are the enormous advertisement billboards. It crosses your mind; is this really necessary? But after walking the small par 3 nine holes, you have learned that these boards also have a protection function. The green of hole 6 is namely exactly behind these boards.
The mats on the driving range look old fashioned, but if you study them up-close you learn that the piece were your ball is on, is brand new and with different layers of rubber underneath, which is good to avoid injuries. No wonder it is really busy on a Monday evening and every mat is taken. And no wonder this club has the most members of the whole of Slowakia.
The driving range is the heart of the little complex with a nice new terrace and reception building, next to the more old stylish golf shop. In the evening sun it is really a fine spot to practice your swing, or do some extra putting.
The driving range balls come in big buckets, because there is an all inclusive price asked of € 8,50 for a day, and € 280,- for a year.
Don’t pass it when you on the lookout to find the entrance. Only a bright yellow cup flag shows the tiny entrance. No signs of welcome boards on the road to inform you that this little practice camp is here.
The nine holes are also good for a practice round. The tee of hole 1 and 7 are combined. You are hitting of mats and the fairways are really short. Greens are fast and bunker sand is ok.
Overall; no surprise that this club has so many members, who all would like to improve their golf swing and play on the surrounding 18 holes courses.
