The difference between indoor and outdoor golf

The difference between indoor and outdoor golf

Can you beat the elements of green grass, fresh air and chirping birds?
While nothing can beat this sensation, we do offer the NEXT-BEST-THING!

X-Golf Avonhead provides the most realistic setting to playing golf.
All aspects of our courses are modelled in 3D, if you look closely you will see your new environment includes trees, water, houses, bunkers and even flying birds.

Try to hit a ball at a tree and see how the ball bounces off it.

One of the most difficult shots to simulate is the short game. With the advanced 3D Graphics, XGOLF gives you an unparalleled experience in the short game. When you putt or make a chip shot, the ball reacts to the green’s undulation as it would in a real course.

No more collecting balls! The XBALL system gathers the balls for you and places them back on the tee and you are ready to go. During the game, it remembers each player’s tee height, so that you feel like your own caddy sets the ball for you.

Training on driving ranges can become tiresome and boring. Ever wish that you could rent an entire golf course and turn it into a private driving range? Now you can take any of our courses, any hole, any distance and make it yours with XGOLF!

You can also pick up key elements of the swing including; distance, carry, launch angle, ball trajectory and speed.

If you want to experience a new way of playing golf, come in and see us at X-Golf Avonhead.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
