Immersive Golfing Simulation Experience

Birdies at the Mall prides itself on offering a distinctive golfing experience through its state-of-the-art simulator. Unlike virtual alternatives, Birdies' simulator stands out as a unique entity, distinct from the common misconception that it operates similarly to virtual golfing setups. However, the difference lies in the ability of players to physically swing golf clubs and make genuine contact with real golf balls. The setup features a sensor that accurately calculates the distance and speed of each swing, replicating the experience as it would translate on a real green.

Furthermore, Birdies at the Mall boasts an extensive selection of courses, providing players with over 50 options to choose from. These include Par 3 Courses, PGA/Major Courses, and numerous Georgia Courses, such as Augusta National, Great Dunes, Indian Mounds, Sea Islands, Highland GC, and more. Whether players seek the challenge of iconic venues or prefer the familiarity of local courses, Birdies' simulator caters to a diverse range of preferences.

The accuracy of Birdies' simulator has garnered acclaim from both enthusiasts and professionals, with guests consistently impressed by its ability to replicate real-world conditions. Notably, the venue has welcomed esteemed guests such as the GS Golf Club and members of the Forest Height Wednesday Group, all of whom have been astonished by the precision and realism of the simulations’ readings. 

In addition to its appeal to seasoned golfers, Birdies at the Mall also serves as an ideal venue for beginners and families. The compartmentalized nature of the space provides newcomers with a comfortable environment to learn the fundamentals of the sport, while also offering accessibility options for those with mobility concerns. The enclosed spaces make it conducive for individuals who may find navigating large-scale golf courses challenging, ensuring that golfing remains an enjoyable and inclusive activity for all.

More than just a Golfing Venue

Behind the success of Birdies at the Mall is John Simmons, along with his brother Pete and Pete's wife, Dawnel. The idea for the venue stemmed from a casual conversation between John and Pete, and since opening their doors to the public in September 2023, the trio has been dedicated to bringing their vision to life.

In addition to their Masters Week festivities, Birdies at the Mall hosts a range of regular events, including student discounts, weekly Bingo on Wednesdays, which includes free bingo with any purchase, and special tournaments like the recent women's putt-putt event held in March.

The success of the recent women’s event, which was participated in by a range of ages, has inspired them to host another, tentatively scheduled for May. These events not only provide entertainment but also foster a sense of community among patrons, making Birdies at the Mall more than just a golfing venue.
