Trilogy at Lake Frederick located in Northern Virginia just 90 minutes from Washington, D.C., is highlighting its full-size golf simulator, which is a unique amenity at its exclusive and upscale 55+ active lifestyle resort community nestled in the foot hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
“Golf has long been a favorite pastime for those looking to stay active,” said Jason King, general manager of Shea Homes, the parent company of Trilogy. “This state-of-the-art simulator allows residents to keep their game fresh even on cold and wet days and newcomers to build their skills up before hitting the links outdoors.”
Located inside the Shenandoah Lodge & Athletic Club, a 36,000-square-foot facility for the upscale resort-style community, the golf simulator is one of several amenities that allow residents to maintain an active lifestyle. Although it’s indoors, the on-site, full-scale golf simulator is in high definition, allowing residents to feel as though they are on a course. The lodge also includes a state-of-the-art fitness center, a resort-style pool and tennis, bocce and pickleball courts and is home to Region’s 117, an award-winning farm-to-table restaurant that’s open to the public.
Residents can also make use of extensive hiking and biking trails and boating on the 117-acre Lake Frederick. Golf simulators have improved dramatically in recent years, with realistic graphics and real-time information on things like speed, spin rate and launch angle.
“With the detailed feedback they provide, you can improve your game more quickly on a golf simulator than on a course,” added King. “And with the pre-programmed course layouts, you can practice your swing on courses that are thousands of miles away. In some ways, the simulation is even better than the real thing.”
