At The Golf Dome, golfers rehearse their swings with an hour of unlimited balls at the full-flight indoor driving range or while playing virtual replicas of more than 30 world-famous courses in Full Swing simulators. The double-decker indoor range is host to 34 hitting stations, from which players hit at three target greens while distance software flashes instant readouts of shot trajectory while silently clapping for impressive drives. Serious players can sharpen their short games at the 350-square-foot custom-designed putting green and practice chipping or competitive castle-building in the full-size sand bunker. With up to four plaid-wearing friends, golfers can swing year-round at the Full Swing golf simulator, which features accurate replicas of some of the world’s top courses. It typically takes one hour for one golfer to play 18 holes and one hour for two golfers to play 9 holes, so plan accordingly.
The Golf Dome
A towering dome dedicated to golf practice looms over The Golf Dome’s multifaceted grounds, serving as the gravitational center of a facility dedicated to recreational golf and baseball practice. Inside the vaulted white roof, golfers stroke drives from one of 34 hitting bays at the indoor, two-tiered driving range, where distance-reading software flashes instant readouts of shot trajectory and the pain inflicted on each practice ball. The dome further facilitates climate-controlled clubbing with a putting and chipping area and Full Swing golf simulators, which allow golfers to play digital recreations of more than 30 of the world’s top courses.
Outside, a scenic, 20-foot waterfall draws players to the 18-hole miniature golf course, where contoured greens run between rocky outcrops, interrupted by water that comes into play on 14 holes. The din of sharply struck line drives echoes throughout the grounds, sonic evidence of the six adjacent batting cages, where players swing at high-arching softballs, baseballs hurled at up to 75 miles per hour, and tiny meteors raining from the sky.
