SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Great Shots, a 54,000-square-foot golf and entertainment venue located on the Sanford Sports Complex at the corner of Benson Road and Westport Ave., will open on Dec 6.

Great Shots features 60 individual climate-controlled hitting bays, two restaurant and bar spaces, six event rooms and a kids’ activity center with climbing wall. Great Shots is also home to the Sanford POWER Golf Academy and the Austad’s Tour Fitting Experience.

“We’re excited to finally welcome guests to Great Shots,” said Jonathan Buckley, general manager of Great Shots. “This is an incredible entertainment venue for everyone to ‘golf, eat and enjoy.’ Parents will love our family-friendly environment, while adults of all ages will appreciate our unbelievable food and drink menus in our restaurant and sports bar.”

Each bay in the three-story building can accommodate up to 10 people. Guests will be able to use real golf clubs and hit real golf balls out to a 250-yard-long by 90-yard-wide artificial turf field. Using radar-based technology, golfers are able to track their shots, including club-head speed, exit velocity and distance. Through BigShots software’s game mode, guests have several options to turn their golf experience into an interactive video game.

“Great Shots fulfills one of the missions of the Sanford Sports Complex by providing a place with activities the entire family can enjoy,” said Kevin Lampe, president of Sanford Sports. “It is a dynamic addition to the entire region that will provide entertainment year-round.”

Troon, the leader in golf management, development and marketing, manages Great Shots.
