Residents of Estevan and the surrounding area of southern Saskatchewan have a new indoor golf option.
Earlier this week Global Golf Plus had a soft opening in the city showing off their four GolfZon simulators, they also have two StrikeZon baseball simulators as well. Manager Sheldon Beatty told Golf Saskatchewan that the excitement in Estevan for indoor golf is evident.
“We had tonnes and tonnes of positive feedback,” he said. “Lots of people are saying when they walk into the place it gives off big city vibes.”
Owners Rob Peloquin and Pete Seregella travelled to a couple cnetres including Winnipeg and Red Deer before a final trip to Ontario settled the debate on what software and equipment to purchase. The ownership decided on GolfZon with Golf Vision Plus Plus technology.
“We have over 220 different courses available and they are adding more courses every week. A month ago there was only 180, now we’re over 200,” Beatty said.
Beatty said they are planning weekly ladies, junior, and men’s leagues for the new year and discussions have been in progress with TS&M Woodlawn Head Professional Amanda Minchin to host lessons and clinics in the city over the long winter months.
“We’ve been chatting with Amanda, she’s been in a couple times. We’re pretty sure she’s going to come in and do some junior lessons, and some private lessons,” he said.
Global Golf Plus is fully licensed with a pub-style menu ready to serve any size group. Beatty said with the soft opening and a buzz around the community more fun stuff is planned for after CHristmas.
“We’ll be doing other fun things, I can’t really say as of yet. We just want to get all these Christmas parties out of the way and the early bumps and bruises out of the way before we do that. When we do it, we want to do it right,” Beatty concluded.
