The idea for a 24/7 indoor practice facility stemmed from me not finding any time to play while I lived in Chicago. I was out there for graduate school at Northwestern and ended up as the golf operations manager at a small community golf course called Canal Shores. Fast forward a couple of years later, and I just wasn't playing or practicing anymore because of time. Then I started to think, "How cool would be if there was an indoor facility I could go to at midnight?" 

So when my family moved back to Utah last fall, low and behold The Links Club was born. Open 24/7 to my members, it has been a wild ride and a lot of learning on the way, but overall I've enjoyed it.

How’d you pick GC Hawk? Do the clubs have to have the white dots on them to be read accurately?What would you change if you had a do-over??

Good questions - So I went with the GCHawk because one, I think Foresight and their technology is amazing, and two, ease of use.

The Hawk doesn’t need to picked up, moved or anything for left handers. I can pretty much set it and forget it. The hitting area is massive so really it’s just sooo user friendly and unbelievably accurate.

So if you want club head data, you need the club markers. There is a one dot configuration and 4 dot, depending on what you want it to measure. Most of my members will do the 4 dot configuration on a PW, 7, and driver.

So I have memberships that start at $99 and go up to $199. It depends on how much you want to play, length of membership etc. The average rate per hour is probably like $13 or something.

Oh and I have two bays, with space for a 3rd expansion.

Interesting, 

My brothers and I are looking into doing something very similar with a more of a tap room idea. 

we looked at the foresight simulator, but didn’t like it as much as a couple others. The wedges seemed to be off and putting was way to easy like everything was made if it was close. We played a foursome round in 4 hours maybe a little less. 

If you don’t mind, could you tell me what is the sq ft of your facility and cost per sq ft. I understand if you don’t want the cost out there. 

 

Good luck in your endeavor, I hope it brings many many smiles to you and your customers.

Alrigh this is beautiful. Wish I had something near me that had this capability i have seen a few places who have an outdoor putting green as well for a better experience but obvious much more maintenance.

You didn't like for Foresight Launch Monitor? Interesting. As far as indoors goes, I haven't seen anything that compares at all, I believe it is so accurate.

 

Umm my space is like 2200 Square feet.

The hard part was trying to find the right ceiling height. I wanted my place to feel open and not restricted, so I'm basically in an industrial space with 25 ft ceilings.
