Seems I recall the Pontiac Silverdome being for sale for $500,000 a couple of years ago. It would have plenty of room.....but imagine the utility bills!

Actually, imagine the utility bills for ANY indoor facility.

A more modest pipe-dream might be an indoor disc golf practice facility. A dozen putting baskets with multiple floor levels to simulate uphill/downhill putting.....some driving nets to work on form, maybe with video cameras and monitors.....one or two short fairways to work on approaches, hyzer & anhyzer....and whatever else someone cleverer than me can conceive of in an affordable space.

I was thinking a lot of skylights (like more modern shopping facilities have) would eliminate the need for lights during the day.

A practice facility would be sweet, something like the PGA store has.

And beer.

And yes, the chicken coop hole is at N GA Canopy Tours.

Fun course, lots of walking and a pretty tough course, but fun.

I'd worry about the air conditioning or heating bills more than the electricity bills. That and the property taxes. You'd HAVE to have a liquor license to have even a prayer of breaking even.

Me and my friends were talking about getting suits and going to our local piggly wiggly (chain in wisconsin, idk bout anywhere else but its slowly dieing because of super walmart/pick n save) and asking them to buy it out to change it to a course. That would be so epic.

There's a several hundred-thousand square foot old textile mill where I live that has been sitting empty for several years. I think an indoor facility could draw players if it were close to a population center with lots of players and if it offer all sorts of normal outdoor activites inside.

Darn you....now everytime I pass one of those mills---and S.C. is littered with them---I'll be dreaming of the indoor course that could be!

The indoor course and practice area/driving range, putting range or whatever has come up multiple multiple times. Unless you're the owner of such building, and don't mind ever turning a profit. These types of places just aren't feasable at this time in the sport. It might be later, just not now. Possibly not ever due to the nature of this sport.
