Bolingbrook – Mistwood Golf Dome (formerly McQ’s Golf Dome), the top indoor golf facility in the Chicago area, will be the first dome to host Toptracer Range Technology as seen at select Topgolf facilities and on television during professional tournaments. Beginning November 1st, golfers of all skill levels will be able to use the same high-end camera-tracking technology featured in PGA broadcasts to improve their golf skills or simply challenge friends to interactive games while eating and drinking from Mistwood’s newly remodeled hitting bays.
“This kind of technology is going to make indoor golf domes as appealing as high-end bowling lounges,” says Dan Bradley, general manager of Mistwood Golf Club and Mistwood Golf Dome. “You can hit real golf balls and watch where they would have gone on a TV with your friends, so it’s very social, very competitive and very accessible to new fans. All in a climate-controlled dome with great food, drinks and music.” Cameras placed throughout the dome will track every ball hit by every player, displaying where the ball tracks to on interactive screens in each hitting lounge. Close-range targets on the course will capture some balls and synchronized targets will display the would-be trajectory of longer shots.
Interactive games include competition for long drives, closest to the pin shots, targets for points and virtual play on famous full length courses. The installation of the Toptracer technology is part of a comprehensive remodeling of Mistwood’s 60,000sf facility which will now feature lounge seating with couches, chairs and tables in (30) hitting bays, wait staff service, private TVs, and more. In conjunction with the extensive remodeling, the facility is adopting a new name to showcase its relationship to its award-winning sister-property Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville.
Similarly, McQ’s Bar & Grill, located at the dome, will now be called McWethy’s Sports Bar. McWethy’s Tavern is located at Mistwood Golf Club. “Golf domes and even outdoor ranges are typically staid environments with serious golfers working on their swings, but after 6pm those players are gone. That’s when the party will start for the new fans who want music and drinks and games. This is going to be a great spot to break your cabin fever this winter,” says Bradley.
