SentryWorld in Stevens Point offers multiple indoor golf options
STEVENS POINT - The indoor golf area at SentryWorld in Stevens Point is usually busy between November and March. But this year, it's been a little different.

"The month of April especially has been incredibly busy here in our indoor practice facility," said Director of Golf, Danny Rainbow.

SentryWorld doesn't just have a driving range and putting green. They also added a golf simulator about a year ago.

"It picks up my slice really well so I think it's pretty accurate actually," said golfer Ben Long. "I've got a long way to go before it actually helps my game, but any time you can get out and get some extra swings in before you hit the course, it's very helpful."

The simulator has about 20 courses to pick from. One of those picks is SentryWorld's actual course.

This year, a different group started coming in.

"We've had several area high school teams and university teams as well coming to practice on the indoor facilities," said Rainbow.

Luckily for some, it is just practice before the real deal out on the greens in a few weeks.

"Just to get out and hang out with family and friends, to spend time, whether it's indoor or outdoor, just to have that option is really nice," said Long.

SentryWorld is open to the public, there is no membership fee to use the facility.
