Proponent members may recall reading our excerpts from “How to Crush the Indoor Golf Market,” a 44-page ebook produced by partner company Design2Golf. You can access the ebook under the Training Facilities tile on our homepage. 

But you can also take the valuable interim step of downloading and printing out one small, fundamental segment of the e-book. It’s from the book’s “10 Biggest Challenges” chapter, all about adapting an existing building for use as a high-end indoor golf training center. It’s title is “Challenge 5: Create a budget that accurately projects construction, electrical, production and technology costs,” and as you can see it’s completely in list form, ready to print and save:
