Jackson TWP. – The new Indoor Sports Performance Center aims to give golfers of all levels the opportunity to improve their swing, as well as enhance their shooting prowess and have some fun.

Tee It Up Canton is a family owned and operated business that opened mid-October for those who want to work on their game with state of the art golf simulators. The center is located in a nearly 2,000-square-foot remodeled building at 7976 Whipple Ave. NW.

“Our focus is more on improving the game (golf) in general and getting kids (or students) and high school teams here,” said Conor Clay, vice president of Tee it Up, noting that the center is not a sports theme. “We want to lower the entry (cost) barrier and bring kids and high school teams here.”

Tee It Up Canton, an indoor golf performance center, has three state of the art golf simulators for customers to use.  The center is located at 7976 Whipple Ave.  NW in Jackson Township.

Tee It Up’s goal is to be a hub for high school golf teams in Northeast Ohio, Connor Clay said, adding that reasonable rates are available for teams of 10 to 15 participants.

He said he and his father, Tad Clay, run the day-to-day operations. Petrie is helped by his mother, Lee, and girlfriend, Chelsy, from time to time throughout the week. Tad is the owner of the facility and the former owner of Rentware Simplifications, a standardized laundry service.

“We were given (Rentware) to pursue this (dream),” said Tad Clay, noting that about $200,000 was spent to remodel the Tee It Up building.

“(Connor and I) love golf and the big golfers,” he added. “We’ve wanted to do this (business) for a long time.”

The indoor center has four digital holes with large, TV-like screens for short and long golf shots, Connor Clay said, which is good for client practice as well as lessons. There are also green indoor courts.

Customers can program the simulators for a digital driving range, or play a round of nine or 18-hole golf. Private lessons are not offered at work. However, independent contractors who teach golf will be available occasionally to offer tips, Connor Clay said.

Ten digital golf courses from across the United States are loaded into programming at Tee It Up Canton, including Kinsale Golf Course in Powell, Ohio, and The Farms Golf Club, located in Rancho Santa Fe, California.
