Golf Central BNE is a state-of-the-art golf entertainment facility that is located in the heart of Brisbane’s North Side and it is pioneering the way for the world of modern golf with the launch of Australia’s first Toptracer driving range.
Golf Central BNE has revolutionised its driving range by installing the first Toptracer Range system in the Southern Hemisphere. The Toptracer Range officially launched at Golf Central BNE, Brisbane Airport, and is available in all the undercover bays.

Toptracer technology, owned by TopGolf, has disrupted the world of golf and introduced a fun, engaging, tech-driven experience that appeals to seasoned players, avid golfers, friends, family members and even first-time golfers.
Players can now visit Golf Central BNE and play like the pros using the same Toptracer technology as seen on TV to broadcast the tracking and display of ball-flight in real time of the most iconic golfers in the PGA and LPGA tours.
“We continually search for ways to improve the golfers experience at Golf Central BNE and we can officially say we are now one of the most technologically advanced driving range facilities in the Southern Hemisphere” said James Cooper, Managing Director of Avid Sports Management, the operator of Golf Central BNE.
Golf Central BNE’s Toptracer Driving Range brings a new excitement to the game of golf, transforming its appeal to drive interest from all individuals regardless of skill or experience, whether it’s first time golfers, family members, friends or avid golfers.
“I believe we have a sophisticated facility that appeals to golfers and non-golfers alike, however with Toptracer Range the level of enjoyment has increased 10-fold.” Said Cooper.
The Toptracer driving range at Golf Central BNE has been split into two districts. The Toptracer Play District invites groups of all ages, regardless of skill, to play, eat & drink and encounter a unique and unforgettable entertainment experience. With music, innovative technology, a share-style menu & bay set-up The Toptracer Play District encourages groups of friends or families to get together and create unforgettable shared memories!
Further along the range, you will find a golfer’s heaven, also known as the Practice District. Golfers can dive into advanced analytics to fine-tune their swing or virtually tee up at the world’s greatest courses, including Pebble Beach.  The Practice District allows golfers to focus and use the most advanced technology in golf to improve their game. 

Golfers can even download the Toptracer app to capture and record their results and analytics, meaning golfers can monitor and compare their progression and see how their practice improves each time they visit the range! 
“We have a healthy clientele of golfers and non-golfers at Golf Central BNE, and Toptracer Range adds a whole new dimension for every golfer of every skill level, in every bay.  Golf Central BNE has been perfectly set up for the serious golfer and the “hit and giggle” golfer alike.” said Cooper.
“I am a strong believer that the game of golf is healthy and still loved by many, however we just needed to deliver it in a different fashion.  We are so excited for everyone to experience a modern twist to the traditional game!” said Cooper
