WAUKESHA - Wisconsin Indoor Golf Center opened for the season Friday with two new golf simulators.

With the new $60,000 additions, the golf center now has six simulators that players can use to golf on some of the world’s most famous courses — virtually — with their own clubs and balls for between $32 and $37 an hour. The simulators can handle groups of up to eight at a time.

Chris Verhoff, owner of Wisconsin Indoor Golf Center, said the winter is a popular time for golfers to come and play a round of golf while Wisconsin’s outdoor courses are covered in snow. The facility is open to the public until the end of May and accepts appointments during summer months.

The center also has an arcade area and beer area where players can purchase drinks while they play, Verhoff said.

He said it is the biggest facility in the state that offers indoor golf with high definition and E6 software.

PGA Golf Pro Richard Wallace works at the facility and offers award-winning club fitting and video lessons for $65 per hour, where he video-records the golfer’s swing and goes over it frame by frame.

The center is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and is located at 206 Travis Lane in Waukesha.
