A state-of-the-art golf entertainment center is in the works at the Sanford Sports Complex in northwest Sioux Falls.

Great Shots is scheduled to open in 2019. Sanford Health officials announced plans Thursday morning.

The 54,000-square foot facility will include an interactive driving range, the Sanford POWER Golf Academy, a restaurant, and a meeting space. It will be built on the southeast corner of Benson Road and Wesport Avenue.

“The vision of the Sanford Sports Complex has always been to create a place filled with activities the entire family can enjoy, and Great Shots is a perfect fit,” said Kelby Krabbenhoft, president and CEO of Sanford Health. “This facility cements our commitment to the game of golf and will be unlike anything the region has ever seen.”

Sanford officials say the heated, interactive driving range will be open year-round and include 60 bays spread across three floors, featuring a giant video wall with golf technology by Big Shots and Flight Scope.

The Sanford POWER Golf Academy section of Great Shots will incorporate a putting green, a series of private bays and the Sanford Sports Science Institute’s golf performance and injury prevention research.

The full-service restaurant and bar will be supported by the golf hospitality company Troon.

Great Shots will include six meeting spaces for corporate outings, fundraisers and celebrations. There also will be a kids zone with video games and other activities.

The addition of Great Shots is the latest announcement from the Sanford Sports Complex. Retail giant Mills Fleet Farm and The Summit League headquarters already have been added to the growing number of tenants at the Sanford Sports Complex.
