BELOIT — What started as an idea at a Professional Golfers Association conference has teed off in Beloit, and The Beloit Club’s Ironworks Golf Lab officially opened earlier this week.

The 8,000-square-foot space in the Ironworks complex in downtown Beloit offers area golfers the chance to work on swings, take lessons and practice their short and long games at all times of the year, no matter the weather with three simulators and a 3,000-square-foot putting green space.

“It’s a lot of fun,” said Milt Kodl, head golfing professional at The Beloit Club and senior instructor at the lab. “We have a nice group of professionals who work here. Everyone is having a blast. Part of the deal is having to learn how to use everything, so we’re getting used to all of this great equipment with the people that come through here.”

The golf lab currently employs 12 staffers, with three to four at the facility at any given time. The lab is open from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. on weekdays and from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. on weekends. Hours may change depending on possible league extensions.

Kodl stressed that the lab was open to the public and geared for recreation, in a laidback atmosphere. The facility also has a bar for those looking to relax after a training session.
