Short Game Practice Area

We all know that about 60% of golf shots are taken within 100 yards of the green. This is also the place were you can really lower your score.

Up until now there has been no place to learn and practice your short game for six months out of the year in Minnesota. The Minnesota Golf Academy has changed that. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced player our short game area will help you improve your game.

Eric Chiles, Minnesota Golf Academy Class A Teaching Professional is one of the top short game instructors in the country. His experience includes six years teaching short game schools with Hank Haney, sponsored by ESPN. His summer short game schools are always sold out. Needless to say he knows what kind of facility it takes to effectively teach the short game.

Eric will be teaching his popular short game schools inside at the Academy. To do that he wanted to create an indoor facility on par with any outdoors practice area. Accordingly, Eric designed our 11,000 square foot indoor short game area to his high standards.

The area includes a two tiered 1625 square foot undulating green surrounded by over 2545 square feet of turf for practicing every shot possible up and around the green. At the back of the green we have a large sand bunker to practice a variety of sand shots. Eric designed additional hitting stations and practice areas from 10 to 30 yards from the front of the green with a variety of grass to provide a multitude of shot possibilities. You will be able to hit up to 50-yard shots into the green. There is simply nothing comparable to the Minnesota Golf Academy indoor short game area anywhere in the country.

Standard Rates for the short game area are $20.00 for 55 minutes 7:00am – 8:00pm Monday through Friday. Prime Time Rates are $30 for 55 minutes. Prime time schedule is all day Saturday and Sunday. We will be able to accommodate up to 10 people at a time to practice in the short game area. You can also reserve your practice time on-line.
