A high-tech golf training center offers a unique experience all year round
BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) — Whether you’re a seasoned golfer, a beginner or somewhere in between, Buffalo Golf Club and Socials allows you to hone your skills at any time of the year.
Originally from Snyder, Jesse Struebing is an avid golfer. He shared his love for the game as an instructor in Boston and Buffalo over the past two decades.
“I always knew Buffalo was an underserved golf market and wanted to bring the concepts and ideas I had in Boston back to my home, Buffalo,” Struebing said.
Buffalo Golf & Social took up residence on Washington Street in Buffalo about a year and a half ago.
Customers can choose from 140 different courses around the world and play them virtually on Trackman simulators.
Struebing also offers a one-on-one experience with lessons, complete with video analysis. “Anyone who wants to get into golf and is nervous or scared; it’s a perfect setting to do that,” he said. “It’s not intimidating.”
Kassidy Aiken started golf at the start of the pandemic and now works at Buffalo Golf & Social as an event coordinator. “You’re on the course, that’s something you can’t get anywhere else, especially in Buffalo when there’s 2 feet of snow on the ground every other day,” she said.
And for those in Southern cities, Buffalo Golf & Social has opened a second location in Orchard Park.
To add to the fun, a bar will also be coming to its Buffalo location this summer.
