Hitting the course, listening to the birds chirping and perfecting that swing is the golfer’s life for about four months in the Northland.

Jamie Booterbaugh is bringing that to you year-round.

“It’s something that’s gonna aid the entire golf community,” said Booterbaugh, owner of The Sweet Spot.

His indoor golf simulators at The Sweet Spot in Duluth are keeping swings sharp and putts accurate.

“Basically you put the clubs up for 8–6 months a year and, you know, you’re just getting rust in your own swing,” said Booterbaugh.

The Sweet Spot brings dedicated Northland golfers 86 different courses to choose from and an analysis of each swing.

It’s the perfect solution for practiced golfers hoping to better their game or new golfers wanting to learn.

“It’s kind of a self–teaching tool as far as keeping your club head square, getting your speeds right and getting your distances right,” said Booterbaugh.

The Sweet Spot is located at 2908 West 3rd Street in Duluth.

They have men’s and women’s loaner clubs, golf balls and tees available.

They’re open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

They also have leagues you can sign up for.

M-F Early Bird Special: $20/hour (9 a.m. to noon)
M–F $27/hour (noon to 7 p.m.)
Sat–Sun $30/hour
