The weather is no longer an excuse to give up golf – or to not involve the rest of the family.
Even during the dreary winter or rainy season, diehard golfers, and those who want to try the sport, have a place to work on their technique. The Links Indoor Golf, a sports club at 2435 S. Main St., is now open with simulators and leagues that cater to golfers of all ages and abilities.
Bruce Boerst, a Toledo-based attorney and one of the co-owners, said The Links is a great opportunity to involve the family in something that – thanks to the simulators – can be played year-round. “Golf welcomes everyone, no matter your gender, ethnicity or skill level,” he said. “In golf you play against yourself.”
The Links, in the same plaza as Dollar General, offers simulators where patrons can play regulation rounds against a green screen. Using their own clubs or rental clubs, golfers can match their skills against different courses and have their swings analyzed. Leagues are available, but the simulators are also available on a per-hour basis during business hours. Depending on the time of day, simulator rentals range from $30-$35 an hour regardless of how many people are playing. Younger and less experienced golfers have choices that include putt-putt courses.
The Links has a liquor license but a limited food menu, so carry-in food is welcome. The space is also available for party rentals, and recently hosted a ballerina-themed child’s party.
