Fresh Face: inJoy Golf
Andrew Lally’s love of golf began at the age of seven when his grandfather taught him how to play. His passion for the game continued throughout his life while he pursued a career in physical therapy. Although he loved his job as a physical therapist, the thought of pivoting his career excited him. After drawing up a business plan and crunching numbers with his SCORE mentor, Andrew called his wife and said it was time to quit his job and pursue a new dream—opening an indoor golf facility.
In November 2021, inJoy Golf opened its doors, welcoming Lancaster golfers into a unique twist on the golfing experience they were accustomed to. At inJoy, the traditional golf green is replaced by synthetic turf and a floor-to-ceiling screen that creates an immersive experience for the player. Powered by state-of-the-art technology, inJoy’s digital golfing experience makes it possible for skilled players to strengthen their abilities, beginners to improve their game, and non-golfers to have fun trying out the sport. inJoy’s on-site gym facility makes it possible for Andrew to continue using his physical therapy background, providing athletes with workouts tailored to help them meet their specific goals for growth on and off the green.
“To be able to repackage my physical therapy skillset and point that in the direction of the golf world was such an awesome way to combine personal passions and professional passions,” Andrew said. Andrew hopes to see inJoy continue to become a place where golfers can strengthen their game and where anyone can gather to spend time with friends, have some drinks (it’s BYOB!), and discover the joy of the game he first experienced as a child.
Since day one of his opening, Andrew says he has been welcomed with open arms into not just the golfing community, but the vibrant small business community that is a fundamental part of Lancaster culture. “The support has been unbelievable, and I am so thankful we are in this community,” Andrew said. “We’re going to work hard to give them a place that they love to be in.”
