Golfing in Minnesota during the winter months just got easier.

The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is set to launch a 12,000-square-foot facility, called PGA MSP Airport, that’s advertised as an interactive golf concept and offers food, drink and instruction. Those behind it say it’s the first of its kind in any U.S. airport.

It’s due to launch in March and will give travelers across the country a chance to brush up on their game while stopping in MSP’s Terminal 1. It’s good timing for the facility, too, since nearby Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska is set to host the Ryder Cup in 2016.

The PGA of America and Wexford Golf, a golf-development firm based in Minneapolis, collaborated on what organizers are calling a “golf lifestyle facility.” It will feature simulators, a virtual driving range and a putting green as well as retail and lounge areas.

PGA professionals will also be available for club fitting or practice sessions.

“The focus of PGA MSP is to engage both existing and new golfers in a fun and unintimidating environment staffed by the best in the business, PGA professionals,” said Joel Burger of Wexford Golf in a press release.
Champions’ Grille will be in the facility, which also has an 84-seat bar.

Prices for lessons and golf offerings are available at the PGA MSP website.
