Below are another FORE unique ways to enjoy golf in Sudbury. A couple can even be done year-round!
1. Pro Putt
HOURS OF OPERATION: 10 AM – 8 PM
Pro Putt is an amazing 18-hole artificial grass putting green located at Timberwolf Golf Club. The course was built to reflect a miniaturized version of a full-size golf course including bunkers, slopes, and grass. These features allow for an exciting game with accurate detail, as the ball behaves similarly to how it would on the fairway. The landscape of rocks and trees creates a gorgeous, well-thought-out design in and around the 18 holes. Pro Putt is a great experience for golfers of all skill level. It is a must-try attraction!
HOURS OF OPERATION: 9:30 AM – 10 PM, Monday to Saturday, closed on Sundays
