Frequently Asked Questions
About the Angelo Vayas Room
The Angelo Vayas studio is our large 550 sq ft private golf simulator room named after
one of Maplewood's most well loved, generous, hard working, and inspiring residents.
Founder and owner of the Village Trattoria restaurant in Maplewood which expanded
to locations in Summit and South Orange, nothing gave Angelo more pleasure in life than
quality time with his family and giving back to his community. He had a heart of gold and
remained positive, courageous and without regret all the way up to the day brain cancer
took him away from us on May 24, 2015. Angelo was a talented athlete and fierce
competitor who loved to play golf. Those who knew Angelo will continue to feel his presence
and positive spirit as we enjoy stories and laughs of times shared with him.
Are children permitted to play at Greens?
Unfortunately, we cannot permit inexperienced children or teenagers to play at Greens
for liabiltiy reasons. Only minors who are presently taking golf lessons, have their own golf clubs
with them and accompanied/superivsed by a golf experienced parent or instructor, are permitted
in the golf simulator studios. Thank you for your understanding.
Can I bring my own clubs? Do you have clubs I can use?
Yes, by all means bring your own clubs! But we also provide complimentary use of high-end
Cobra-Puma golf clubs to use – lefties, righties, men, and women sizes - to make it easy for those who
arrive without clubs. No extra charge! In addition.
Can I have a lesson at Greens with my own instructor?
Yes. Schedule your own tee time and have your own outside instructor accompany you to provide your lesson.
Do I use your golf balls and tees or can I bring my own?
No. Players must use our provided regulation Callaway blue golf balls in order for the system to accurately compute
ball speed, spin axis, backspin rpm, and side spin rpm. In addition, we supply adjustable tees that work best with
our turf. Therefore, no outside tees or balls needed.
Can I wear outdoor footwear in the facility?
As long as your shoes are sneakers and they are clean. Players are encouraged to bring their
golf shoes but can play using sneakers as long as they are clean. Members should keep a pair of golf shoes
in their spare bag of clubs they store at Greens so that they can replicate their true playing experience.
Can I bring my own food and beverage into the facility?
Our golf studios have a refrigerator to hold your own beverages. Our café concession also serves various sandwiches,
wraps, salads, beverages, coffee, water, snacks and more for purchase.
Do you have a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available?
We provide non-alcoholic beverage sales only. We are a BYOB facility permitted for those 21 yrs. and older.
Refrigerators are provided for each simulator studio.
How long does it take to play 18 holes in your simulators?
We say it takes approximately an hour for an individual player to play 18 holes. So, if you have more than one player you would probably want to book an additional hour for each player in your group. For example, a foursome would normally book four hours of playing time.
How far in advance should I book a tee time?
Just like at your favorite golf course, we tend to be busier evenings and weekends. Consequently, we do recommend
booking your tee time 5-7 days in advance in order to secure a tee time. Only Bronze, VIP Silver and VIP Gold Members
can book tee time more than 7 days in advance.
How do you charge for a round of golf?
We charge an hourly rate per simulator, not per player. Discounted pricing is available to members so please
see membership details and estimated play time.
How many golfers can play at the same time?
1-4 players per simulator studio. We limit groups to 4 players for safety reasons
Do I pay for the amount of time that I reserved, or only the time that I use?
Due to the fact that most tee times are in big demand and in order to discourage people from booking longer sessions than required, players will be charged for the time that was reserved, regardless of the actual time used. In order to not be charged you must call at least 24 hours in advance to change or cancel your reservation.
Can I cancel my booking and receive a full refund?
In order to receive a refund, you need to cancel 24 hours in advance of your booking time. We are sorry for any loss incurred by short notice cancellations but we also lose money on short notice.
Is the facility available for full facility rentals?
We do offer full facility rentals for a variety of different occasions including, birthdays, corporate functions and special events.
Do I need to arrive a few minutes early?
Player should arrive at least 5-10 minutes early in order to provide you with enough time to get changed and get ready for your tee time. We want all players to be able to get their round started on time.
