Scratch has an 11,500 sq ft indoor golf center in Santa Clarita. Juniors come to Scratch after school and/or on weekends and practice the game of golf in the same manner that soccer, baseball and football are taught and learned. Adult programs range from beginner classes, open practice, advanced training sessions and evening leagues played on the simulators. The center features four distinct areas – putting, short game, fitness and simulator room for full swing. In addition, the center is available for corporate events, fund raisers, group outings and meetings…..scratchgolfcenters.com.
