Golfers can now enjoy Petrifying Springs Golf Course year-round, with the addition of a FlightScope golf simulator.
“We’re excited to offer this amenity to our customers,” said Daniel Drier, Kenosha County’s general manager of golf operations. “The simulator provides excellent information about your swing, and it’s a great way to come in from the cold and still stay in golf shape all winter.”
Drier said the simulator utilizes FlightScope technology used by many professional golfers. The simulator’s E6 software gives users the ability to play more than 25 different golf courses, placing them virtually in great locations around the world.
It also includes practice range capabilities and can be calibrated for right- and left-handed hitting.
“What’s more, our friendly and helpful staff will always be on hand to ensure a positive experience for golfers using the simulator,” Drier said.
Drier noted that the Petrifying Springs golf shop will remain open for merchandise sales throughout the winter, and discounted food and beverage options will be available to those who come to use the simulator. The golf course itself is now, however, closed for the season.
The simulator will be open through March, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. It will not be open on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day.
The cost is $35 per hour on weekdays, $40 per hour on weekends. All-day rentals – available seven days a week upon request – are $400 and can accommodate up to 12 users.
Reservations may be made by calling 262-425-1747.
