The Art Flight Golf Story
Art of Flight Golf was created by golfers for golfers. We wanted to create a facility with everything you need to Practice, Train, and Play the game you love year-round. It was important to build our flagship facility at Bethlehem Golf Club as it has deep roots in the Lehigh Valley community. We are excited to deliver an experience that redefines what is possible to achieve in a simulator environment.
