St Andrews maybe beautiful, but wouldn’t you much rather smash a ball (safely) around the capital?

If you like the idea of driving a ball towards Canary Wharf then a new driving range at Greenwich Peninsula could be right up your fairway.

With 300 yards of riverside frontage overlooking the City and The O2, the Greenwich Peninsula Golf Driving Range offers a vista like nowhere else.

It’s open to anyone from the aspiring and occasional golfer to regular players to turn up and perfect their swing from £6 for a bucket of 60 balls, with eight PGA pros on hand seven days a week.

The a fine-dining restaurant and a golf store, while each bay features flight tech and entertaining areas.
