The NEC, Birmingham, has introduced
a driving range as part of its ongoing plan to become a 24-hour destination.
The range, installed by Clevertee
Golf, features 25 bays including a floating hole-in-one facility. Visitors can
hire equipment and buy balls from the on-site hire shop.
Managing director of The NEC
Kathryn James says the driving range demonstrates the flexibility of the
600-acre site, 300 of which is available for development.
“Developments such as this bring us
one step closer to the realisation of our master plan for our site to become a
24-hour, total entertainment experience,” she says.
Golfing legend, Tony Jacklin
officially opened the driving range, which is located adjacent to The NEC’s main
entrance, close to the exhibition halls. The facility will be further enhanced
