On and Off the Course: New golf complex coming to town

After months of winter, stark and extremely cold, signs of spring are upon us, and many of you have begun to venture out to local golf courses. I, for one, felt the need to go to the driving range before I actually played golf, to make sure that I could still hit that little golf ball in the direction I intended to! (I found I could still hit the ball, though my short game is a bit iffy.) Though I didn’t get to play golf during the winter months, I did get to hit balls a few times by visiting the heated range of Riverside Golf Academy in Indianapolis. Lying between 38th street and I-65, near Coffin Golf Course, the Riverside Golf Academy offers a full range of practice facilities in good weather, and enough to keep you occupied in winter weather. Besides the heated range stalls, they also have a practice putting green and four indoor simulators, where you and the rest of your foursome can play any of 125 golf courses (including Pebble Beach and Augusta) for $25 apiece! And just a few steps away is a snack bar with many of your favorite beverages, and a big-screen TV. It’s just the right kind of place for a golfer to hang out all winter.

Now Terre Haute is going to have its own facility for golfers to hang out, and it’s scheduled to open this July. It’s called the Fore Seasons Golf Complex, and a group called CMP Midwest Properties is building it. It is replacing what used to be Stu’s Golf Course and Driving Range, and will be managed by Jon Holloway, the former pro at Hulman Links and Rea Park. The course is still there, but it is now called “Trinity Golf Course” and it is open for business. You’ll still be able to play under the lights, but they’re not on yet. The greens fees are $5 to walk 9 holes, or $10 to ride, and $10 to walk 18 holes, or $15 to ride.
