The facility will also have a licensed PGA Professional on staff who will be integrally involved in golf lessons and club fittings.
Located in what was previously the Stadium Club on the Club Level, the X-Golf facility features seven state-of-the-art, indoor golf simulator bays over two floors – with three bays that offer expansive views of the playing field. Featuring traditional country club and mid-century modern decor, the space also boasts two full bars and unique seating areas with great views of the game.
The facility also offers an impressive outdoor patio with the opportunity to catch the game and wait outside for “tee times.” This space is available for walk-ups, with reservations strongly recommended. Delaware North, the official concessionaire of American Family Field, will create a menu of specialty drinks and pub fare that will be available for fans year-round including all Brewers home games.
