How Shadowood Can Help You Get Better In Any Weather

Shadowood Golf Course

In 2015, we got together as a group at Shadowood and asked ourselves and fellow players, “What can we do to help our members and guests get better this year?”

One of the problems that kept popping up as we asked our players how we could help them get better is Indiana weather. One player said, “Towards the end of the fall, I’ve finally started grooving my swing and then it turns bitter cold. The next thing I know it’s March and I’m trying to find my swing all over again.” Another player said, “I love playing golf in the evenings during the summer because it stays light until 9pm. It’s hard for me to practice and get better when it gets dark before I get off work in the later fall and winter.”

Maybe you’ve noticed like us that Indiana experiences all four seasons, sometimes in the same month. One week it’s sunny and 75, the next it can be snowing or raining cats and dogs. You never know what the weather is going to bring us in Seymour, Indiana. When we heard our players commenting about the weather, we knew we couldn’t change that but we knew of a solution that could help solve their problem.

After hours of research, trips to golf courses and golf stores in Indiana, and trying out countless products, we made the decision as a course to invest in a brand new golf simulator: the TruGolf E6 Golf Simulator.

TruGolf E6 Golf Simulator

The TruGolf E6 Simulator is best known for its accuracy, beauty, and a world-class course list that includes 30 of Golf Digest’s and Golfweek’s “Greatest Courses,” including St. Andrews, Pebble Beach® Resort, Oakmont, Royal Melbourne, PGA National, and Bandon and Pacific Dunes.

Did you notice how Jordan Spieth was getting ready for the start of his 2016 season?

The #1 golfer in the world and reigning PGA player of the year was forced to stay inside and practice during the holiday season due to thunderstorms and lightning in the Dallas, Texas area. Thankfully, Spieth was able to practice indoors using his TruGolf E6 Golf Simulator. Long before we saw this video on Facebook, we were convinced that choosing the TruGolf E6 Golf Simulator was the best decision we could make for our players.

So far, we’ve logged over 3400 rounds of golf since we purchased the simulator in 2015. The greatest news for us as a course is that our members and guests are loving it!

One of our longtime members said “This simulator is awesome. The thing I like the most is that it gives me feedback on important numbers like my club head speed, ball speed, and spin rate. Most other simulators I’ve tried at other courses are fun but they’re more entertainment than help for my game.”

Another player who heard about our TruGolf E6 Golf Simulator through a Facebook ad told us, “I drove from Columbus to try this out. I’m glad I made the drive. I was able to play 18 holes with my friend, have a beer, all in a little over an hour.”

We’re convinced that you’re going to love our TruGolf E6 Golf Simulator! So much so that we’re running a special for you. No matter what Indiana weather brings us in this early 2016 season, you can play 18 holes in 72 degree weather inside at Shadowood Golf Course for $20.

You can use the same golf simulator Jordan Spieth used in Dallas to get ready for his 2016 golf season! The good news for you is that it’s only takes a quick drive to Shadowood Golf Course in Seymour, Indiana.
