To most golfers, a dream day on the course would probably look something like this:
Travel a short distance to a world-class course, the sun is out, the temperature perfect and holds all day, the fees are looking very reasonable and the grounds are perfectly kept and assistance is close at hand. Also great would be if it takes half the usual time to complete the course;
There’s no waiting for groups in front, no walking between holes, no looking for a stray ball and no hecklers in the background commenting on your swing. All done and off to the 19th hole for a well deserved cold ale and maybe a snack.
A day of near perfect golfing is improbable, yet has become very obtainable thanks to the world of indoor or virtual golf. Indoor golf takes nothing away from the real game.
With state of the art simulators, you get to swing the actual club and watch the ball take flight on a high definition screen.
Most simulators use a sensor mat which monitors club speed, direction of the ball etc. to give you a very realistic outcome, as if the ball was hit on an outside course.
The big difference is that you can achieve the above-mentioned dream game in a temperature controlled environment with a drinks cart close at hand!
Canada is the perfect location for indoor golf and we are specifically looking at Saskatchewan, a province in Western Canada. With pleasant summer temperatures ranging from 60F -95 F, there are a lot of outdoor courses to choose from in even the smallest of towns. Winter temperature (November to April) are mostly below freezing which makes for tough going, even for the most avid golfer. Therefore Indoor golf is especially ideal for winter months.
The major cities have the best indoor facilities there is to offer. Gathering information on indoor golf establishments in the major cities is fairly easy, with detailed Facebook pages and websites on offer.
The smaller cities/towns seem to either keep their indoor facilities a well-guarded secret or there simply aren’t any.
There is sure to be an indoor center not too many hours away from the smaller towns. If the need to golf is great enough, one will travel.
The following venues appear to be the most popular and well marketed:

Most of our searches for indoor golf courses in the following towns, came up empty-handed. With some towns having a population of less than 10000, it is unlikely that they would have a major indoor center. If one searches on the town’s tourism websites, none list indoor golf as an attraction. We suggest calling the tourism office in each of these towns to query about availability of indoor golf in the area or the proximity of other towns or cities that do have facilities:
- Maple Creek visitors center: +1 306-662-4005
- Estevan tourism centre: +1 306-634-6044
- Weyburn Tourism centre: +1 306- 842 -4648
- Melville Tourism centre: +1 306-728- 3772
- Swift Current Tourism centre: +1 306 -778-9174
- Humboldt Tourism centre: +1 306- 682 -4990
- Melfort City Govt office: +1 306-752-5911
- North Battleford Tourism Centre: +1 306-937-7111
- Prince Albert Tourism center: +1 306-953-4385
Nevertheless, Saskatchewan seems to be ever evolving when it comes to their indoor golf. Most facilities strive to provide the most realistic high definition technology possible. The smaller facilities seem to put a lot of emphasis on customer service to make up for being a bit behind the bigger venues as far as size and technology are concerned.
Either way, whichever one of these indoor golf centers you choose to visit, you will be sure to have an experience second to none.
