Don't be surprised to see Sanford building golf entertainment facilities in more places than Sioux Falls.
On Thursday KELOLAND News told you that crews will soon start work on Great Shots at the Sanford Sports Complex.
The 54,000 square foot building will be similar to Topgolf.
It will have a heated, interactive driving range, along with the Sanford POWER Golf Academy, a restaurant, a bar and meeting space.
This will be the first Great Shots in the country, but if it goes well, Sanford CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft says Sanford will likely build more across the country.
You might wonder why the organization is getting into the game of land and business development.
Krabbenhoft says with Medicare reimbursement and an aging population, it's getting more difficult to make ends meet with healthcare.
"We had made a decision that we'd have to look at alternative revenue sources in the future. Over about a 20 year period, we wanted to create about a quarter of our business activity from sources other than taking care of the sick and injured," Krabbenhoft said.
Great Shots is set open around the end of 2019.
