Chelsea Piers Sports and Entertainment Complex, located between 27th and 23rd Streets in Manhattan (on the Hudson River, to be exact) may just be described as a 28-acre "playground" for adults and children. There are honest-to-goodness indoor playgrounds for toddlers and children, and places to participate in other sports such as basketball, ice skating and ice hockey, bowling, and even golf. You even have three food establishments to choose from after all that exercise and play has helped you work up an appetite.
Indoor Driving Range
As mentioned earlier, golf is just one of the activities available at the Chelsea Piers, and what a set-up it is! First, you have the fact that the Golf Club, which is open to the public, but memberships are available, has the only year-round outdoor driving range. Practice your swing, because there is enough room in the multi-tiered structure to do so, or perfect your putting technique. If you're new to golf, or just need a refresher course, sign up for lessons with one of the golf professionals that work out of the Chelsea Piers Golf Club.
Climate Control at Indoor Driving Range
Anyone who lives in New York or has visited during the cooler months knows that the weather can get pretty nippy, especially with the wind coming off the Hudson River. So, how can the outdoor driving range be open year-round? That's simple; the 52 hitting stalls that are available on the four levels of the Golf Club are heated and protected from the weather. This is a great way to spend a cold weekend day when you feel like you're about to go stir-crazy.
Plan a Birthday at the Chelsea Piers Golf Club
Hey, fellows, does a guy friend of yours have a birthday coming up? Why not throw him a golfing party (even if his birthday is in the middle of winter)? The Golf Club can help you plan that.
