The indoor golf simulator market comes to the growing city of Owasso this week with the grand opening of Twisted Tee Golf set for Friday.

Twisted Tee is located at 314 East Fifth Avenue in the Fifth Avenue Business Park just south of the intersection of Highway 169 and 76th Street. The website for up-to-date information is

The newest entrant into the rapidly growing simulator-based golf market will have six bays using the latest in TrackMan technology, as well some miniature golf holes that replicate famous holes. It will offer snacks and drinks while waiting on its liquor license and a food truck will be on site at various times.

Twisted Tee is a combined investment of friends Nick Budler, Kendall Pacy and Tony Smith. Budler and Pacey are engineers in the oil and gas business and Smith works for Cintas Corporation. All are avid golfers and they decided over a year ago to begin researching the best technology and the best location for their golf venture.

“In the end, we all live in or near Owasso and it has a really strong golf community with three courses, a successful high school program and good golf programs at area schools,” Budler said.

With the recent closing of GolfSuites at Riverwalk Crossing in Jenks, the off-course golf market particularly in northeast Oklahoma is trending strongly toward indoor golf simulator facilities. Twisted Tee joins Tour Quality, Birdie Bay and Superfly Golf Lounge in Tulsa and Scratch Golf in Bixby in offering simulator golf.

Golfers at Twisted Tee will be able to play courses from around the world or use the TrackMan analytics to practice and improve their game. Trackman measures up to 40 parameters but in particular tracks ball speed, launch, spin, carry, roll, landing area and accuracy.

The bays are large at 15-feet wide and offer ample seating for groups or leagues. Hours will be 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays, 9 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday and noon to 6 on Sundays with all those being flexible. Cost is $45 an hour for the public and members will get 20 percent off.

“We’ve had a lot of inquiries from everything from birthday parties, church groups to the serious golfer who wants to come in and work on his game,” Budler said. “We’re looking forward to being open and hope everyone comes in to see what we have to offer.”
