Opened in 1989 by tour golfer Ronan Rafferty, Fairways Driving Range welcomes all golf enthusiasts who wish to practice their golfing skills. The driving range is open 7 days a week and provides equipment hire if required. Club membership of Fairways may also be purchased. Fairways houses the popular “Golfing Machine” to assist instruction. With a club house, extensive free parking, and floodlights, Fairways is ideal for golfers wishing to drop in at any time - booking is not necessary. The range is open until 10pm weekdays and 8pm weekends, during summer months, with slightly earlier closing in winter. Located between Chingford and Walthamstow, Fairways Driving Range is pleasantly located on an easy to access route. As well as driving range facilities, Fairways is also home to the Sheehy Golf Academy. This recently opened academy is run by golfing coach Shane Sheehy. The academy offers half hour and full hour golf lessons, along with 45 minute full game assessments, and lessons for junior golfers on Saturday mornings. Lesson packages are available, and on request coaching “on course” can be provided. Steve Jones, custom club fitter, is also based at Fairways. Steve is a highly respected club fitter, in 2011 being voted the number one club fitter for the World Golf Teachers Federation. Steve is proud to provide a high level of service using select quality products, to create a product unique to the customer.
