Look off to the east as you travel north I-29 out of Sioux Falls and you will see the tall netting configuration housing the new Great Shots.

The year-round golf event center is opening Friday, December 6 on the Sanford Sports Complex and will feature 60 individual climate-controlled hitting bays for golfers. And it's more than just a place to grip and rip.

According to General Manager Johnathan Buck, "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.”

Combined with golf there are two restaurant and bar spaces, six event rooms and a kids’ activity center with climbing wall.

Think you got what it takes to clear the net? You better have more than a 250 yard flyer. Some pretty cool technology comes into play too as golfers can track their shots, including club-head speed, exit velocity and distance.

Great Shots is also the home of the Austad’s Golf Club Fitting center.
