Let’s Go Golf! The New Golfing Simulator at Lake Maloney Golf Club
Show Notes

The Lake Maloney Golf club is one of the greatest progression stories. From sand greens to grass, the golf course has continued to improve over the years. Now, there is a new project on the horizon for golf lovers. On today’s episode, Will Peers, the Director of Golf at the Lake Maloney Golf Club, will break down his journey to North Platte and the future plans he has for golfing in the area. 

Construction has started on a large practice facility at Lake Maloney Golf Club. With three 20x20 bays, each loaded with its own launch monitor for golf simulation, Will and other golf enthusiasts in the community are extremely excited about this project. Plus, there will be over 90 courses to play! 

These launch monitors will have indoor and outdoor options and will be a great activity for friends and family. While membership options are available, anyone can call in and rent out a bay to enjoy. Will and his team are hoping the project will be done by July, so make sure to check it out this summer! 

Join us today as we get into these topics: 

·       Will’s background in golf and Nebraska 

·       Launch monitor elements, how putting works, and golf simulation settings 

·       How Will and his team came up with and created this project
