Go Low Indoor Golf aims high to provide golfers and non-golfers with opportunities to learn the basics, improve their games, be social, and have fun--even during the winter months.
Owner Gary Samborgna Jr. opened the facility in Paramus in mid-September. A certified golf teaching professional, Gary has been sharing his love of the game since 2012 and has taught both indoors and outdoors at courses including Paramus Golf Course. However, he has a special love for teaching indoors. “The technology has come a long way to keep the game fresh over the winter,” he says.
Go Low has five simulator bays in which up to four golfers can virtually play courses like Pebble Beach, Bethpage Black, or St. Andrews. A foursome can play 18 holes in four hours, but players don’t have to feel like they are committing to a long day out on the links. If they want to speed up the game, they can choose to play a scramble format. “The bays are priced by the hour, so you can play as long as you want, or you can just stop in for 30 minutes during lunch to hit some balls,” says Gary. “A foursome would divide the cost of the bay among themselves. It’s a very reasonable cost for a lot of fun and more of a relaxed environment. A lot less pressure than on the golf course!”
Maybe golf isn’t your game. That’s ok because Go Low's fun and social atmosphere are perfect for any type of casual get-together or party. “We host groups of friends who bring their own food and drinks,” says Gary. “Beginning in January, we’ll accommodate public and private leagues for all skill levels. Sometimes a few couples will come in for a night out—the guys play a round and their wives relax and chat over a glass of wine. You can make it whatever you want to make it.”
Golf groups of mixed skill levels may wish to play fun golf games rather than a typical round, such as golf skeeball, golf cornhole, carts beer pong, or minigolf. All variations are available thanks to the high-tech simulator system. There are also great games for more advanced skill levels such as FORE (like HORSE in basketball), Conquest, and Razor’s Edge. “You don’t have to be a golfer,” says Gary, “Come and play a fun game and come for the party!”
Go Low is a perfect place to host a corporate team-building event or even a kid’s birthday party. Their simulator projection system can also be used for presentations, slideshows, videos, or Playstation games to complement the event.
Practice your drives in the simulator or your putts on the green. Schedule a few lessons with Gary to improve your game. He teaches all skill levels.
“Golf is a great sport for business or to be social,” says Gary. “You can play regardless of your skill level, and at any age. You can always get better—no matter how good you are.”
