Looking for a unique venue to host a special event? Golf Lounge 18 provides a welcoming atmosphere for any occasion. A long round of golf can work up quite an appetite, and they’ve got your hunger covered! They have an extensive menu that everyone can enjoy.
Here’s what we tried:
Their most popular item, buffalo wings! Perfect amount of spice paired with creamy bleu cheese to even it out.
Next up: The short rib grilled cheese. Filled with caramelized onions and cheddar cheese that just melts in your mouth!
Finally, the pulled pork tacos. There’s 3 in an order so it’s the perfect meal to share with your family and friends!
To pair with all the food, we tried their blueberry lemonade cocktail and a refreshing craft beer from a local brewery!
Down below is a Q & A with one of the managers at Golf Lounge 18:
•Can you provide an overview of golf lounge 18, including how many locations, the number of simulators you have?
- Golf lounge 18 is an indoor golf simulator, bar and restaurant. This Fairfield location has 8 simulators using the trackman. There are 6 other locations (Fairfield, Danbury, Orange, Canton, Westchester, and Peabody) with 2 more locations coming soon! (Braintree, MA and Manchester)
•Are there options for various skill levels, from beginners to advanced golfers?
- We have a wide variety of customers who come in. Theres people that are avid golfers and those who have never picked up a club before. When families come in with kids they typically play the games we provide on the trackman so everyone can have fun with the simulator. For avid golfers, the driving range provides a lot of feedback on your range, speed, and will even correct your shot for you. The simulator also offers many courses varying in difficulty.
•Do you offer lessons or coaching for customers looking to improve their golf game?
- Yes! Customers can go on the website and book a lesson. We have a few instructors here that can lend you all the help you need.
•Are there any signature dishes or drinks that customers particularly enjoy?
- The most popular items are the pretzel sticks, the wings, and the short rib grilled cheese. Drink wise, customers particularly go for the transfusion (titos, lime, ginger ale, grape juice) and the blueberry swing (stoll blueberry, lemonade, and fresh blueberries). Also some of the local craft beers such as fiddlehead!
•Do you host special events?
- If people do want to have an event here we can host it! We have had a variety of different events such as birthday parties, bachelor parties and corporate events. We also run 3 leagues throughout the year, a fall league, winter league, and summer league. We also have “sip and swing” events which is more of a ladies golfing night.
•Are there any upcoming expansions or improvements you have planned for your indoor golf establishment?
- We just finished putting in new turf, bayscreens, and nets within the last 8 months here, but we are hoping to add a few cosmetic changes soon. We are also planning to host trivia nights and live music nights to get customers in who may not be interested in golf!
