Zollner Golf Course adds new indoor simulator as it opens for the season
March 16, 2022
Zollner Golf Course on the Trine University campus is now open for the 2022 season, and is offering a new amenity that will let area golfers enjoy the game even when the weather is bad.
The course is open for walking traffic only this week, and will be fully open with carts beginning Monday, March 21.
Zollner has added a Trackman indoor golf simulator inside the Club Z clubhouse area.
The simulator combines radar capability with high-end optics to track and display the full trajectory of any shot, from short putts to 400-yard drives, pinpointing the landing position with superior accuracy. It also maps the shot's 3D trajectory in real time, along with impact and launch data.
“The Trackman simulator is not just a way to get some golf in on rainy days and the off-season,” said Jon Busscher, director of golf operations at Trine. “It breaks down every aspect of a golfer’s form, allowing them to make improvements when they get back out on the course.”
The simulator also includes a high-definition library of courses such as Pebble Beach, Valderrama, Royal Birkdale and St. Andrews, allowing golfers to get a taste of the world’s most iconic courses without leaving northeast Indiana.
Established in 1971, Zollner Golf Course was rated the sixth-best collegiate golf course in the nation and the eighth-best in Indiana, according to reviewers on the GOLF Advisor website. Reviews noted the care given to Zollner’s greens, the helpfulness of staff, the pace of play and even the comfortable seats in the carts.
Zollner Golf Course hosted the NCAA Division III Women’s Golf National Championship in 2012, and has been the site of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) golf championships, the Indiana PGA Assistant Championships, Indiana PGA Junior Championships, PGA Player Ability Test Tournaments and Indiana Open qualifiers.
